Totally different to others courses

MovingOn courses is something different. It is an authentic 100% all day English course. This adds value to your time and money.
Moreover, the learning method, including grammar, vocabulary, speaking, listening, presentations and a lot of interaction between students and teachers make it something unique.
The course is an extraordinary experience. You feel at home in a totally professional environment. The Directors and hosts Sonia and Gavin are professionals, with the help of Karen who also lives in the house.

A great experience

I’m a 18-years-old girl and I spent 2 weeks in the MovingOn course.
At first I was a little bit worried about the course because I thought that i wasn’t in the right place because of my age; but at least i enjoyed a lot this 2 weeks.
We always stayed together like a family with the other hosts and teachers doing a lot of activities.The rule that was everything in English was very useful because was the best way to improve quickly.
The lessons were very interesting and we had always the opportunity to speak and express ourselves without problems.
If you want to learn English this course is the best you can find! If you are 18 or 81 it doesn’t matter because Sonia Gavin and the others will always make you feel welcome and part of a big family!
Great experience!
Thank you

Great course, fantastic experience!!!

I spent 2 months in this course and it was fantastic! My english improved a lot and now I feel relly confident with my speaking, my listening and my writing. Teachers taught me lot of things related to my intrests and to what could be useful to me. In my opinion living with the teachers in an immersive english environment made the difference from the other courses I attended. In addition, the atmosphere is lovely and soon, after my arrival, I started feeling like being home. The only bad side is that you will miss the course after it will be finished.

The best English school

Hi, I spent four weeks in Bangor in „moving on courses”. It was a great time for me. I had an opportunity to speak English 24/7. No one is speaking another language than English so finally you have no choice. It’s a total immersion with 100% speaking English. Apart from having “normal” lessons you spend all your day with other students, teachers and school’s owners (Sonia and Gavin; Sonia is also an excellent teacher). People are together during lunchtime, dinnertime, afternoon and evening. You have no time to be bored. All the time someone asks you a questions and you are forced to answer them even if you have no idea what they are asking about :-). Apart from English, our lunches and suppers were very tasty. It was a big choice of food and you can always eat whatever you wanted. If you are going to stay longer for sure you’ll put on weight :-). The atmosphere is very friendly and you are treated like a part of the big family. It’s a great place to learn language as well as have a good time.

MY SECOND FAMILY :)

Here I am! I spent 7 weeks in MovingOn Course, in this amazing family! At the beginning, I was worried about my English and the possibility to improve it, but now after these weeks I can say that my listening and my speaking have really improved! I have to say "Thanks you" to Sonia, Gavin, Karen, Brian and Amy because they encouraged me and they taught me a lot. I can say that is really a total immersion course with 100% English guaranteed! If you really want to improve your English, you will have to go to Bangor, to MovingOn course!
They make you feel welcome and part of a big family! I hope to come back again to enjoy my life there with them and with the other students! It has really been a beautiful experience! Thanks for everything!

MovinOnCourse

Hi guys! I spent two months in this Academy, two amazing months during which I met lots nice people from Poland, Spain and Mexico. A typical week at MovingOnCourse is composed of lessons in the morning with different teachers usually three, then lunch together with students and teachers, it's like a lesson, they correct you and help you to improve your English skills during common life situations. Two afternoons per week, there are study trips in the afternoon and you can visit very nice places, BUT remember they aren't tourist trips but lessons, so the teachers explain lots of things to you, you can learn more words in a short time, I think that this type of lesson is very useful. The most interesting and important thing about MovingOn Courses is that the course is 100% English, I can confirm and gaurantee that this rule is very important. Gavin is avalaible for every problem and he does everything to give you the best accomodation and service.
Sonia cooks for everybody, she is a good cook, the food is always different (fish, meat,cheese,vegetables ) and always tasty! She does everything to help the students, for example if you can't eat meat she can cook another thing for you... Karen is a teacher who lives in the house, she is young, very qualified, with international experience and she helps you always (also at 11:00 p.m.). The athmosphere in the house is like a big family, Bangor is a lovely town and Belfast is only 30 minutes by train.After this experience, I recommend this course, if you can. you should attend for at least one month because when you break the ice you can get to know lovely people. I say Thank you to Gavin, Sonia and Karen for these months....see you soon for the second chapter.

MovingOn Courses

Buenas tardes a todos! Escribo este post porque hace unos meses estaba en Espa;a buscando información a cerca de cursos de ingles en el extranjero para tomar la mejor decisión posible y agradecí mucho que la gente opinara en foros.
Hace dos meses me decidí por MovingOnCourses y aquí sigo, estoy muy contenta!! :) Tanto los alumnos como algunos de los profesores vivimos juntos en una casa ubicada en Bangor (Irlanda del Norte). La verdad es que entre todos se crea un ambiente muy familiar que es de agradecer cuando estas lejos de tu casa. Para que os hagáis una idea, un día típico aquí es: sobre las 8:15h bajo a desayunar porque a las 8:30h empezaban las clases, que duran toda la mañana. En clase nunca hemos sido mas de 3 personas y siempre hemos tenido un nivel parecido. Sobre las 13:30h comemos todos juntos. Contra todo pronostico, ya que todo el mundo me había dicho que por estas tierras no se come muy bien, Sonia es una gran cocinera y estoy consiguiendo mantener la línea xD. Entre todos ponemos y quitamos la mesa, y es muy común que mientras estas haciendo alguna tarea, los profesores te pregunten a cerca de ella para que interiorices el vocabulario. La verdad es que están siempre muy pendientes de nosotros. Durante el primer mes hacíamos viajes de estudio dos tardes a la semana y el resto lo teníamos libre. A partir del primer mes para que te salga mas barato el curso, te dan la opción de mantener las clases igualmente por la mañana, pero por las tardes trabajar para ellos. El trabajo que puedes hacer es muy variado, desde tareas administrativas para la academia como echar una mano con cosas de la casa, y siempre te dan a elegir que es lo que prefieres hacer.
Vine con el objetivo de soltarme a hablar en ingles (siempre me había dado mucha vergüenza) y aquí no callo! xD Por supuesto cometo errores, pero prácticamente estoy todo el día acompañada de profesores que me corrigen y me enseñan.
Os dejo el link de la pagina web por si queréis saber mas o tenéis cualquier duda:
