Agradecimiento a More Than English desde México

David:
Debo darle las gracias por la maravillosa experiencia que mi hija tuvo este verano con ustedes, fue enriquecedor para sus sentidos el convivir con chicos de otros países y percatarse que al final todos a su edad tienen las mismas inquietudes y los mismos sueños en cualquier parte del mundo. Se ha enamorado más de Inglaterra que antes de ir y sé que a eso ustedes han ayudado, mil gracias a Gareth y a Alma que me guiaron aquí en México, deseo sinceramente que el campamento crezca cada año porque su trato es muy profesional y cálido...
Espero que Dios bendiga a usted y a todo su equipo

Great experience in a safe place

I work as a language travel agent in Prague and working with More Than English I can feel an extraordinary devotion, excitement and enthusiasm while preparing, promoting as well as running the summer school. This is so strong that I even decided to send my own daughter to MTE. It was also an opportunity for me to go to see the school myself and experience some of the lessons and activities. The owners – Claire and David – are wonderful people, friendly, always available on the phone, email or skype to both agents and parents, always present at school during the whole programme, they know each student personally and care for each of them. The programme is super-intensive, running from morning till late in the evening without any gaps, the staff communicate with the students even during meals. Apart from usual morning lessons, the students can choose from different afternoon Get Ahead options, lots of interesting activities running for the rest of the day till late in the evening, great trips. My daughter as well as other two young clients of mine enjoyed the whole stay tremendously, had lots of fun, loved the food and the staff and they all wish to come back in the future! And I, as an agent as well as a parent, felt the girls were in a safe place, looked after perfectly, motivated to speak English all the time and coming back home with amazing experiences and new friends. I will be happy to recommend this school in the future.

More Than English Summer School

This summer was one of the most different experiences of my life. First of all, I met people of 13 different nationalities, cultures and thoughts making friendships that I’m taking with me forever. Two weeks in a beautiful big campus, with large green fields, a swimming pool, tennis courts and football fields. The rooms were big and with a lot of space. I shared my room with 5 girls of 5 different nationalities, and it was really fun!
Summer school is about classes too, but my teacher and my classmates were the best ever! We had so much fun that we didn’t even feel bothered about having classes. I had 10 classmates of 7 different nationalities.
The food on the campus was really diverse, but I hope next year it isn’t as spicy as it was this year and I hope they put salt in it. My favourite meals were croissant for breakfast, lasagna for lunch and barbecue outside for dinner.
About the Get Ahead options, I did film and dance, but I preferred film. It was funny, challenging and dynamic. There were special features like archery, zorb football, paintball and cardio tennis which were so much fun I can’t describe! There were some excursions too, to Bath, Birmingham and London: so much fun! We saw a lot of England and its culture.
I had an amazing summer, so thank you More Than English for making it happen.

More Than English 2016

My experience at More Than English was amazing.

The accommodation was great, a traditional English building with modern technology in the classrooms. There was also a swimming pool, a lake, an art classroom, sports hall and a design classroom. On the massive green areas there were multiple football, cricket, rounders, tennis and golf pitches/courses.

The food was exceptional. There were some traditional British dishes such as fish and chips, but there were also dishes from rest of the world. One day we had a French breakfast, followed by a Mexican lunch! You'll occasionally stumble upon something you don't really like, however there will be many more dishes that you'll enjoy.

The staff was always friendly, nice and approachable.

The English lessons were based on various TED talks which meant that it inspired us to debate on many topics. The classes were dynamic, one day we pretended to be investigators, while the next day we pretended to be art experts buying different artworks without knowing their real price. It was really funny finding out that the painting you paid 100 million pounds for is actually only worth about 500 pounds in real life.

What makes this school special are Get Ahead options. They are afternoon classes which are all about one topic you choose. It can be speech making, golf, tennis, football, film, dance and many more. Through these classes you meet professional coaches and teachers.

The excursions were also great, we visited a lot of cities in the whole England including London and Birmingham.

The activities were, in my opinion, the best part. We played many sports, went to the cinema, played paintball, zorb football, had a fashion show and did some cooking. You could always choose which activity you would prefer. For example, one day while I was playing football, some of my friends were in the swimming pool and some were doing archery!

My trip to England on summer 2016 was a very positive experience and I recommend More Than English to anyone looking for a perfect summer school.

Alina Kokina review

The school itself is gorgeous. It is old but beautiful. The school had plenty of facilities like a big swimming pool, tennis court, sports hall and other places like football and cricket pitches. There was a lot of green spaces around the school and a lot of wonderful views of hills, fields and farms. Toasting marshmallows on the campfire was one of my best memories from the summer school.

The accommodation itself was ok. We had a huge dorm with 6 people in it. Sometimes it was too much and felt overcrowded but other times it was very funny (particularly at night).

Moving on to the food, I loved it! It was different every day and we had various types of international food for lunch and dinner like Mexican, Italian. My favourite ones were rice and curry and a wonderful vegetarian lasagne. By the way, there was a great choice of vegetarian and vegan food which was delicious. Breakfast was quite similar every day but we did have more choice other than toast and cereal. The coffee was pretty good too.

Overall, More Than English summer school was a great opportunity to improve my English. Chatting with people from around the world was super interesting. It really feels like my English skills developed quite a lot.

Francesca\' review

The campus was really nice it had lots of green and even some cows and dogs going around the place. The building itself is beautiful and also very very English\1

As for the accommodation I was in a room with 2 girls from different countries so I had the opportunity to often speak English. The room was cosy but maybe a little too small for three people.

Moving on to the lessons, the Core English lessons were amazing even though I was the only one from my country.

All in all, there were people from 13 different countries, and I met some lovely people that I became friends with really quickly!

Rodrigo Torres Bonet review

I think that More Than English is a very good summer school.

The people from other countries were very nice.

The rooms were big and colourful and my bed was nice and relaxing.

There were lots of activities and my favourite was football, even though I didn’t win.

The food was also very good and sometimes we had big portions and the chef was nice and friendly.

There were loads of trips and excursions, London was great and and I had a fantastic time.

I would definitely recommend More Than English!

Eduardo Torres\' review

I think More Than English is an exciting summer school with lots of activities like swimming and football.

When I first arrived I was thinking that it was not that fun but after a few days I thought it was great.

The rooms were good and there were both big and small ones. I shared my room with boys from France, Spain, Italy and Thailand! I also met a lot of other nationalities.

I loved my class too. My teacher Gemma was such a good teacher. My favourite thing that I did in class was create a music festival and did a film. We then watched it and it was great.

In More Than English we had lots of activities. The best one was paintball because we had lots of fun. I would recommend it, it's very good!

Weronika\'s review

The Moor Park school is marvellous. It’s really old and that makes it feel traditionally English. It is situated in the countryside. This school is really sage andI feel comfortable in it.

As for accommodation, the rooms are clean and cosy. There are carpets everywhere and I feel like I am in my house because of it. Generally the school is spacious and has a swimming pool and a big sports hall.

On the subject of the classes, we had a group of ten people and 7 different nationalities! My classmates were friendly and patient. We were always busy and had something to do. Our teacher was a native speaker and we also had a student from England!

Also the food here is really delicious. My favourite dinner that we had was curry, whilst the best breakfast was pancakes with fruit and for lunch, fish and chips!

All in all I would love to come here again.

Diego Wanderley Review

The More Than English summer school was overall a completely exciting experience that of course includes the campus. Although it is small, it maintains that traditional British atmosphere with an old victorian mansion, surrounded by modern facilities. It is simply marvellous.

The academic experience was a big surprise for me as it diverged from traditional modules. The school’s name isn’t as much clever marketing as it is the truth, given that aside from grammar, I developed life skills and learnt more about myself as a person.

As for the activities, it can be said that I was never bored during my time at summer school. That describes, quite honestly, just how fun the activities were.

However the best part is actually how the staff helped to create ‘hands’ between everyone in the school be it the staff or the students. Indeed I really felt as part of a big family in the end.
