My experience in MovingOn Courses

MovingOn Courses was AMAZING experience!!!! The perfect academy where you Live with the teachers. I stayed 11 weeks divided in 3 times. I´m going to speak a little about my experince there. My first time I wasn´t able to keep a conversation in English but Now my English has improved a lot and I lost the shy to speak in English.

Before my visits to MovingOn Courses I did a “normal” course in England and had so much free time alone. I also spoke a lot of Spanish. I wanted to speak English but always someone started speaking Spanish. MovingOn Courses is different.
They offer TOTAL IMMERSION WITH 100% ENGLISH ALL THE TIME.
Don´t worry if your classmates speak in the same language because every student complies the main rule of 100% English .
As regards the food, You don´t have problems Because Sonia cooks delicious and varied dishes and If you have any allergy or intolerance Sonia will cook a special dish for you.
It is an immersion course in a family atmosphere. The owners, Sonia and Gavin, joined with other teacher like Karen, Brian, Amy are teachers higly qualified in the teaching.
The Guesthouse is located near of the city centre and the Marina where you can walk or go shopping.
Why MovingOn Courses was different for me and changed my professional life?
I had to do an important English exam, perhaps the most important one in my professional career, After studying in other academies in England I failed my exam 3 times. When I was In MovingOn courses I explained my problem and from the first minute the teachers focused in my speaking problem, When I left the academy 2 weeks before my exam I kept in contact with the teachers by Skype receiving free classes to practice until last minute. The result was Amazing because I passed my exam without any difficulty. Now I gonna get a better job thank to MovingOn Courses.
How is a day in Movingon Courses?
Every day at 8am before class You are having breakfast with teachers, after you have 3 or 4 classes with a maximun of 4 students but normally there are 2 or 3 students in each classes or sometimes only one. The classes are divided in different English levels that it was checked for the teachers previously when the students arrive.
After the classes you have lunch with teachers again and a Whiteboard where they write the new vocabulary and mistakes during the meal or other situations.
It is very important to follow the instructions from teachers because they are correcting you all time. For example, If you are speaking and a teacher correct you, you must stop, think about the correction and say it again correctly.
After lunch are the study trips, is another way where you improve your English going sightseeing with teachers and classmates. the study trip finishes normally in a Pub or cafe shop where the teachers look over the vocabulary learnt in the study trip.
In the Dinner normally every student talks about their professional career or their life and is corrected by teachers on the white board again.
In the evening, after dinner there are other extra activities like going to the cinema, going to bingo (normally the students in movingon courses get some prizes).It is true, jejejjejeej. you can check here: https://www.facebook.com/MovingOnCourses.
And before going sleep you meet with other students and the Teacher Karen in the kitchen to do a Camomile Party, It is unbelievable that you are tired of the all day thinking in English and you have power to continue talking .
In your free time you can go swimming to Aurora´s swimming pool or to do fitness there because Bangor Aurora Aquatic and Leisure Complex is a facility offering an excellent choice of sporting and leisure activities in Bangor. This is the link: https://www.bangoraurora.com/bangor_aurora, ,
Also you can walk or go jogging along of the coast.
The train station is 7 minutes walk and Belfast is 30 minutes.
This is a different academy and it has been an incredible experience. I recommend it without any doubt.

My wife (53) and I (57) spent 2 weeks in MovingOn course. It’s hard to believe but we started speaking English each other also when we were alone in our room.
We met people from other countries and the relationship was so intense and beautiful that we are still in contact and we are organizing to meet.
The teachers are gentile and kind. It was like to stay in a large family.
The course was really intense and useful.

Amazing Course and people

I was in Bangor last August and I felt at home, because we were like a small family. I really liked the learning method, the teachers were also very good and professional (Karem, Amy and Bryan) and I learned a lot and well in a very comfortable environment. I also met lovely people and made good friends that I would like to see again. I want to thank Sonia and Gavin for their hospitality and certify that the course is really 100% in English. In addition to the classes there was also time for leisure and to have fun. I still remember with joy the Friday nights in the pub and the movie sessions on Tuesdays, and the movie Mamma Mia!
In short, a highly recommended experience. Worth it! And by the way,
The MovinOnCourses teachers are the best!

The perfect 100% English course

The most beautiful, interesting and important thing about movingoncourse is that the course is 100%English. I spent the most part of the day with teachers that are amazing so i was forced to think in english. And i think that the best thing to learn a new language is to think in that language and not to translate it. You can reach this only speaking the entire day in english. Also the study trips were so nice and funny. I discovered beautiful places with nice students like me. So I met new friends and now i can contact them and speak English with them. I run a b&b so for me was really important also for my job. I really reccomend this course.

Moving On

A perfect mix between professional classes, living with teachers, northern irish culture and friendly atmosphere in an exceptional location.

If I had to choose what is the best part of moving on courses in my experience, it would be for sure, the huge effort that each person involved in this company do to make you feel as comfortable as possible and feel at home while you are learning english.

Your biggest problem here will be finding out how to avoid english conversations during breakfast if you aren´t a talkative person when you wake up :-) English here is everywhere every day, and this allows you to learn as much as you want.

Sonia, Gavin, Karen, Amy, Brian and Deirdre, are cultured and funny people working as a diverse and excellent team.

I strongly recommend this place for an immersion course!

MovingOn Courses is the best option if you need to improve your English. You'll speak English all the time (only English) and you'll notice that your vocabulary, fluency and confidence improve every day. Also, Sonia, Gavin and all the teachers are great. This is a different academy and it has been an incredible experience. I recommend it without any doubt. :)

I was 4 weeks in Bangor in the inmersion course of MovingOn Courses and I have to say that it was a 4 amazing weeks where I improve my English speaking all the time in english even in the pubs, in the study trips, in real daily situations... This academy is everything you can want from one of them and when you finish the course you really feel that you have improved your English.

Daily life is like if you were in a big family with a pleasant atmosphere, delicious meals and a beautiful place.

I really recommend this academy because of those two things: the great teachers and the methodology to learn English and the great atmosphere that makes you want to stay there after finishing your course.

MovingOn Courses

I'm very happy with this immersion course 100% in English and of course with the atmosphere that I felt during these weeks.
In this course your classmates can be Spanish, Italian or other nationalities, but despite this, you won't speak in your mother lenguage at any time, so that you're all day with teachers, also in excursions, meals and classes. 
This is my second year and my level has improved a lot, grammar, speaking and vocabulary. One interesting thing is that if while you're speaking you confuse a verbal tense or you don't know something they correct you in English and they write it on a blackboard or in a notebook, then they ask you to see if you know the thing that you were wrong and if not they helps you to understand it. For this reason it is recommended to take a notebook to write down what you fail and before you go to sleep review where you failed to study new vocabulary.
You can come for a week or whatever you want, last year I had a colleague who was there about 6 weeks I think.
I recommend you this course.
