studied General English

I would definitely recommend MovingOn courses to anyone who’d like to work hard and to achieve fast results.

I am a professional; language is important to me for business.
My language proficiency had been very low. I could afford only a few weeks to study; therefore, the speed of learning was the key factor for me.
I considered standard courses at international schools, but I was concerned with a few questions, like - how will I practice after classes? In addition, I did not want to spend time on commuting every day; I did not want to be bothered with my meals, too. I was looking for complete immersion 24 * 7 without being distracted by anything.
I got more than I asked for. First days in Gavin and Sonya’s house were not easy for me; I hardly understood what students and teachers were saying, I did not understand the texts I was reading. Therefore, I was given 3 weeks of one-to-one classes., with three different teachers every day.
I was in the center of their attention, so I could not relax, I had to work hard :)
After classes, my day was full of activities (including 2 study trip every week, and student presentations). Local residents came to visit us, to talk to us in real language.
Every day was English all day, from morning till night. This was very hard work. I was going to bed completely exhausted, switching off in a minute.
After 3 weeks of one-to-one classes I was able to catch up with other students and to join the group.
Now, after 4 weeks of my stay, I am able to read and understand newspaper articles, looking into the dictionary only few times. I can communicate with the locals in shops and restaurants, although still making a lot of mistakes :)
I understand almost everything that students and teachers say. Of course, I have a lot of space for improvement; it is only the beginning:)
Big thanks to Gavin and Sonya for their support; I feel at home with them.

More than an English course, a second family

Movingon courses is more than an English course, it is a second family. I spent two fantastic months in the school and I would do the same thing again. Bangor is a beautiful town by the sea, quiet but not boring and is very well connected to Belfast. The English course is not limited to formal classes. You are all day in the company of students and teachers and only speak English.

Wonderful experience

I definitely recommend this academy. Their immersion course means to speak English (literally) all day. The owners and one teacher live the same house where students stay, so you have to speak English during lessons, meal time, field trips. Very good situation to improve your English skill!
Teachers are professional and really helpful.
Bangor is a small, but beautiful town. I enjoyed the days at there.

An amazing experience

"MovingOn Courses is the best option if you really want to improve your English. They offer traditional lessons in the morning and the staff is also focused on all students speaking English all day, so you will get a great performance of your stay. At the same time, you will enjoy a kind treatment and fun activities, as well as the good and healthy Sonia's cooking. The climate is mild and the location is quiet, and have also some typical English pubs where you can taste a good beer".

Intensive English Course

Very effective intensive English course in a familiar and cozy atmosphere. I spent one week in Bangor (Northern Ireland) with Sonia, Gavin and their excellent team of teachers. 100% immersion in the language, great return, plenty of opportunities to practice and learn in a pleasant and stimulating environment

Moving on Courses

A good option to really learn English, immersion is all the time. Unlike other academies that these 4 or 5 hours and then you disconnect, in this case, even daily work are learning situations.

Great immersion course

First of all I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you.

Before I decided to attend this immersion course I had expected really intensive English lessons but still, it really exceeded my expectations. It was truly an immersion course, about 12 hours of English a day. Morning lessons were in small groups, in my case it was 2 students a group. All lessons were focused on parts that we wanted to improve. Afternoon activities were a bit less formal English classes, such as study trips or some entertainment activities, for example bingo, however always focused on English. We always had great discussions during lunch and dinner, and again these discussions were very friendly and relaxed English lessons. Accommodation was great, a very comfortable room with private bathroom. Bangor is a picturesque town on Irish coast near Belfast. It was really easy to get there, 20 minutes from airport.

I highly recommend this immersion course to everyone who wants to improve their English communication skills quickly. I’m writing this review from a 2 weeks perspective after the course, and I see that this course really helped me. I speak much better English and I feel more confident in conversations , especially at work.

I want to say a big thank you to Sonia and Gavin for hospitality, to Karen and Chris for great lessons, and special thanks to Sonia for wonderful food.

Great Course and incredible experience!

After 3 weeks at MovingOnCourses I feel my english has improved a lot.
This is a very FULL IMMERSION english course ---- 100% English from morning to night. Staying all together in this fantastic guesthouse with the teachers and the students helped me a lot to became more confident with my speaking and learning.

Living there was in general very lovely and frendly, like a Family!! Teachers are all day long with the students so this is a plus to practice english also after the morning's lessons. I'm going to come back for sure!

At the and I really suggest the course!!!

Immersion English 100%

I was looking for an intensive English course, and really, I found more than this in Moving On Courses. The teachers challenge you and help you to have a very nice experience with a total immersion in English. In the house, you feel as at home. The town is a very nice coast place, full of chances to expend you little free time. And the most important, the teachers encourage you all time to improve your English in an amazing atmosphere.
Thanks Gavin, Sonia and Karen for your patience and motivation.
