I spent 12 days in spring last year at the private school of Caren. I remember with joy the wonderful company at mealtimes. The conversation with Caren and Nicholas was so friendly, I learned a lot about the English culture, the cooking, the politics and not least the English humour.

The learning happened all the time, on walks with Caren in the huge Richmond Park or when sitting under the blooming apple tree. And in the class hours I have learned a lot of grammar, I am happy to fill up the gaps in my English language.

Caren has a wonderful way of finding where those gaps are, and she picks up where you are in your language with her particular methods.

The accommodation is very homely and calm. I am going back next March!
