I loved everything since I started 10 months ago. The teachers have been excellent, welcoming and friendly. The classes were well balanced with lots of opportunities to talk as well as study grammar. Teachers were good listeners and they tailored my course.  My host family has also been really good, they really make me feel like at home. A very supportive host mother and host father. I had a couple of other students in the house who were British so I improved my speaking a lot!

The Bournemouth and Poole College is a very good place to learn English. I chose Bournemouth because I knew I would get a real British experience and also because there is a moderate accent. When I finish I will come back to South Korea continuing in my current job but hoping I will move to an English speaking position so I can use all I have learnt here.

My experience at The Bournemouth and Poole College could not be better.
