Great stay at Northumbria School

We were two families with 5 children altogether coming from Munich and we spent one wonderful week at the school. This was very convenient and nearly like a stay at a family. Christine was always there helping us with everything, giving us advice for excursions and taking care for a wonderful breakfast.This region offers a lot, the beaches are lovely and the people are very nice. The children enjoyed learning in this special setting with wonderful teachers. Even our 7 year old child had fun learning some basics. We really recommend this school, especially for families.Every family member gets his or her own attention such as a personally tailored English course. We surely come back!

Outstanding

I know, it seems like everyone is writing the same review, but there's really nothing else to say about this place. Let me help you end your ruminating over which English school you should choose: GO TO THE NORTHUMBRIA SCHOOL OF ENGLISH
And if you do I promise you fantastic teachers, an amazing town/village (it's small but well connected and let's be honest, who doesn't love a quirky, little place by the sea), just the atmosphere and everything I can't put it into words (I mean I totally could put it very eloquently, since I learned my English from the NORTHUMBRIA SCHOOL OF- you get the idea). Just go there, trust me! If you don't like it you can send me hate mail and I'll give you a refund. (just kidding, please don't do that)
Okay one last time: NORTHUMBRIA SCHOOL OF ENGLISH!

Always again!

I did an internship for six months at the Northumbria English School in 2008. At the beginning it is always hard to learn a foreign language. Sometimes you feel like it would be a waste of time and you want to give up. But Christine always helped me, showed me my improvements and encouraged me to keep practicing. So I did not give up and my English did improve a lot. Thanks to Christine. Moreover, she did not only help me with learning English she helped me with all other problems I had while living there, too. I never felt alone. During the stay I learned the language and the culture. As I did an internship I learned about the school business and could take part in different meetings, took care of students and helped running the business. It was a very interesting and varying work! The stay was one of my best choices I have made so far and I did not regret a single moment. I would always choose to do it again. And even after more than five years we are still in touch. I can highly recommend it!

Excellente school

I strongly recommend the Northumbria School of English. The staff are really kind, helpful and patient. The way the teachers explain things to us is amazing! They are really creative and dynamic!
It is the second time I have attended a course there, one to one, and this time I requested a specific course, about health and safety, such as: vocabulary, reports and the basic expressions to be used at work.
And it couldn't have been a better decision!

I really appreciated it, and next year, for sure, the Northumbria School of English will be my choice again.
