What students liked about English in Totnes, Totnes
The cultural experience, it was a really nice experience. The teachers are great professionals and constantly motivate us to speak in English. And with Therese Morgan, (homestay family), I'spent very pleasant days, as if I were at home.

Other comments: My experience in Totnes school has been very good. I hope to return next year to continue to improve my level of English. I'm going to recommend your school. The best thing about the school in Totnes is the quality of the teachers.
The teachers (Alex, Katherine, Will). They are excellent professionals. The free time organised by Will was very nice. The trips to Bath and Exeter during the weekend were good. The conversation classes (optional) are really useful.

Additional information
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: It is very important to ask about all the activities the school has scheduled. They are very interesting and a good choice if you do not know about the area or if you are travelling alone and don't know what to do. Also, people who work there are lovely. It is also important not to pretend to have a different level of English (lower or higher) as otherwise you will not be able to take advantage of the time you spend. Lastly, from my experience, accommodation with a family is a great options. But I have heard other stories so it is important to discuss any possible issue with the school, whether it is a misunderstanding (normal in cases like this) or if the relationship with the family is not working.
Other comments: The excursions to cities such as Bath, which are a bit far away, are a bit poor because we use a lot of time to get there. I suggest they leave earlier (we leave at 09:00), at least a couple of hours earlier. Because there are many things to visit, and it is an opportunity that is difficult to repeat on our own, and the city is crowded by the time we get there. We spend a lot of time queuing and little time visiting the places. We also need to get back soon to be there on time. Books are borrowed from the school and many students did not have it because the previous students had lost them. We could work with photocopies or other material I can't think of to avoid this. I did not have a book and it is difficult to study as many explanations are in the book. I guess they can easily find a solution. But otherwise it is a good school, since it is very interactive and the atmosphere helps to learn. For that reason, I will go back, if I can afford it. Thanks everyone. Pili
I think the teachers are very professional and I liked the "cultural experience" course because it is more interactive.
