More Than English Review

It was my third time at More Than English summer school. As always - I am not disappointed.
To begin with, the campus is situated near the idyllic town - Ludlow, where you can not only visit the marvellous castle, but you can also admire the atmosphere of a British town.
Secondly, the campus is neat and tidy, full of different facilities, for instance a swimming pool and classrooms equipped with whiteboards. The bedrooms are cosy and you feel like you are home.
In addition, staff and students are just like a huge family. We can always rely on each other and support in difficult situations.
Furthermore, there aren't any group leaders, which means everybody is being treated equally.
Moving on to Core English, I must admit that I was able to practise a little bit of everything: speaking, writing and reading.
It is important to mention that there is a limited number of students from country and people in a class.
More Than English is not only English, it is getting to know new people from all over the world, playing cricket, rounders, spending time together and simply having fun.
The most crucial thing for the owners of MTE is our safety which my parents and I agree with.
Summing up, More Than English is definitely worth going to. As far as I am concerned, it is the best summer school and if you haven't been there before, you should without hesitation give it a try.

More Than English Review

This year i really enjoyed Model United Nations at More Than English, because it gave me the chance to challenge myself to use my english in a very high pressure environment. I had to research a country, right a position paper stating my countries (Romania) opinion on Economic Migrants and debate on this topic with other delegations.
The biggest challenge I had to face this year was my other Get Ahead Option - Leadership Business Challenge. We had to come up with a smoothie brand including the name, marketing, recipes and finally selling the smoothies to other students and staff.
I had such a great time! I love More Than English

Review by Naiara

I don’t have enough words to describe my first time here. It has been amazing! Simply amazing! Let’s start from the beginning.

I’ve stayed here for about two weeks and I want to repeat the experience next year: LOVELY people, LOVELY teachers and a LOVELY place!

First of all, I must mention the food. Every day there were different types of dishes. Sometimes Mexican, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese and …obviously TRADITIONAL ENGLISH FOOD… but always delicious. I’ll always remember when I ate my first whole spicy chilli. My mouth was on fire!

As for the accommodation, I have to say that Moor Park School opened its doors to me. It is a closed, comfortable, sweet place where you can find a new home for all your companions and yourself. They were from different countries, mixed with the objective of practicing English 24 hours a day. All of them were lovely people and I have been able to learn more about their cultures.

Regarding the lessons of Core English, they were very useful for me because they were designed to meet our English needs and solve them by asking questions and doing practical tasks. My favourite activities in the classes were the writing ones and the oral expositions. And the games were intriguing and fun ‘cause they helped me to gain confidence with my classmates.

Moving on to the activities, there were a lot of laughs and interactions with my new friends. My favourite ones were: the Ludlow Castle excursion, where I learnt more history about England; the cinema night, because I watched my first ‘English’ film without subtitles, and watching World Cup football matches all together.

Turning to another big plus, I must mention the excursion days, which were FANTASTIC, INTERESTING and SPECTACULAR! We went to Oxford, Birmingham and LONDON, and we saw a lot of monuments. But the best parts from the travels were the FREE TIMES. You could be free for an hour or maybe two, and live like an authentic English person. To begin with, it was hard for me because I thought that I couldn’t speak the language well enough, but by practicing, going into shops, talking with native people etc I could improve my English! I had some amazing experiences, like punting on the river at Oxford, and visiting an historic university. It was a wonderful time!

And last, but not least, I must mention my favourite aspect of these holidays: meeting and knowing new, lovely, amazing friendly guys and learning English and new skills as well as facing new challenges.

In conclusion, it has been AMAZING!!!

Review More Than English

Hi, I’m Philippine I went to More than English during to two weeks. So I go to tell you all about this campus.

The first thing who you need to know, we have three hours of school on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The lessons are interesting and interactive. We talk about actuality, we speak together and we do a reaction. I learn a lot of vocabulary during my stay. We don’t learn English we use English. After the lessons, we go to the lunch. The chef is a very very good cook.

Then we can go upstair in our rooms to chill out and brush our teeth but very quickly because we have the Get Ahead during three hours but we have some breaks.

The Get Ahead is funny. We have a professional teacher to teach us and some staff members too.

All the staff are young so they are very funny and nice. We can do many things together.

Review

Hi! My name is Victoire, I’m 14 years old and I’m going to tell you things you have to know before go at More than English.

First of all, lessons. In the morning, we have three hours of English lessons, I know it’s long but time passes quickly! I have an amazing teacher, Lucy. She doesn’t just teach us English, we use English. So don’t worry! If you have Lucy as a teacher, she is very funny and very cool, she’s the best teacher ever!

Now the food, we have a very good chef called Paul. We eat very good food, but to this week, the food is very spicy for me!

About the staff, there are 19 people/ member of staff. The members of staff are very nice with us. For the girls our house parents are Valentina and Rachel. They are our mums for these weeks, Lauren is a activity designer, very cool.

Claudia\' review

My opinion is that More than English is cool. In this camp/ school you learn a lot of English and other languages. The activities in this school are so funny and amazing. In this camp we are using English all the time.

Me in all the activities come with a lot of energy. I’m so exciting because I like so much the activities. Yesterday I did cricket for the first time and I like so much. The food in this school is really good. Congratulations to our chef Paul.

The owners Claire and David are so brilliant people and all the members of staff too. My teacher Lucy is a person that knows all and she’s so funny and brilliant person. I learn so much with her in our class.

Summer School - More Than English

The international summer school of the world, More than English.

In this summer school you have new experience and to meet new friends of different countries. More than English offers this nice experience to young boys and girls doing lessons and different activities.

In lessons we have a sentence to describe what we do “using English not teaching English”. Another thing like activities are very funny and you can spend time with the teachers, they are lovely and perfect and the members are Lucy, Matt, Louise, Jai, Ian, Emma, Calvin and Bethan, nice people.

A big part of More than English are the staff, they are lovely people as well, young and an important thing is the green T-shirts. The staff members are activity designers: Ania, Jacob and Lauren. Other staff are Seth, Valentina and Rachel, the house parents and Imogen, Ed and Paul the chef. Claire and David are the most important people of More than English because they are the owners.

Food in More than English is good, not bad. Paul does a great job in this part and at the moment I like it.

The best time with friends is in the bedrooms, we’re like a team and good, a problem that I have is that the bedroom in untidy and I am a tidy person.

Talking about rules, I think that if we compare with my school in Spain the rules are normal and good. The time in More than English pass so fast. My opinion about it is excellent and comparing with the lessons in home that are very boring, here are perfect.

Jordi @ More Than English

More than English is an international summer camp and English school. This camp is very good, the lessons are very cool because they are interactive and fun. The teachers are very good, my favourite teacher is Lucy because she is very funny and she teaches very well. Imogen is very expressive and Matt because he is very cool.

The food is awesome because the chef, Paul, is very good and he has a lot of experience. My favourite food in this summer camp was tacos. The lunch and dinner are very well. I think that the best of this summer camp is the excursions, because the places that we visit are very interesting and cool. The last week, we visit the city of Birmingham, the city of Oxford and the making of Harry Potter.

The house is very good, the best part of the house are the bedrooms because they are very comfortable and beautiful.

I think that this camp is very good and I’m learning a lot of English.
