The school building itself is very massive. It is very impressive from the inside and from the outside. It is ancient but that is only fascinating. The garden is huge and very beautiful. There evening is a forest next to the school which I find very great because I love the forest in general.

For the accommodation I must say it isn't perfect. the rooms are great but I must say that the beds are uncomfortable, but I have changed my bed and now it's perfect.

To turn to the positive side the lessons in the morning are fun. My teacher is nice and the lessons are various. You have three lessons of English every morning and between every lesson there's a break.

After lunch you do an activity that you choose with your parents at home. You can choose sports (tennis, dance or football) or something like acting or film. You could also have English lesson in PET or speech making. I chose intensive English and I talked more than in the morning as there are less students (10 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon), there are only 2 so it feels like an individual lesson.

In this camp there are lots of students from other countries. This year were sixteen nationalities in total. You have a few students from your country but more from others. With your friends you practice English as well as you learn their native language and you can teach them some of theirs. It is interesting to learn new things from which you thought very different.

Every week there is one full-day excursion and one half-day. I'm here for my second day so I am excited to go to London and Oxford.

All in all, I can say that I had a great time up to this point. I met nice people, did great activities and had fun in the lessons (which hasn't happened for years!)

Summer school

The place is quite cool and the bedrooms are huge but the showers are quite little and that’s hard to wash ourselves.

The English lessons are really great, we talk a lot which an important thing when we learn a language. Also, we’retalking about interesting stuff like eating crickets, live octopus and intimate parts of a pig.

For the moment I chose speech making and this option is pretty hilarious. We’re learning how to speak in front of people and my classmates are really open-minded and talkative (as is the teacher).

Also the teenagers in this campus are coming from so many countries. That’s great and it’s really interesting to talk with them. I keep practicing my English which is my objective for this summercamp.

In this summer camp the great thing is that we reall have the choice about activities and excursions. We can choose whatever we want in a large option of really cool activities. We can have fun in all circumstances!

My camp experience

I will start talking about the campus. There are lots of green fields and forests where we can run. There are also lots of pitches where we can play fun games. The campus is very spacious and allows the campers to play many games.

The accommodation is very colourful, the rooms are big and the campers feel like home. The beds are comfortable and clean, but the showers are small.

Everyday in the morning we have Core English which is divided into three parts. We learn new things and our English gets better. Also we have lots of fun so most campers enjoy English classes.

Campers can also pick Get Ahead options like speech, film, drama and sports. So the campers have the choice to pick what they like and do it.

We meet new people from new countries and learn new foods, languages, cultures and much more. There is British food at camp but I wish there was more.

Finally I think More than English is an amazing camp where campers learn while having fun and discovering new cultures.

Ludlow summer school

I really like the school, it has a great view. I like my room, it is quite small but it's nice. The school looks like Harry Potter, it's amazing because in Harry Potter you also go upstairs to the residence. The campus is so big, with lots of space and so many activities (swimming, football, tennis).

The activities are amazing because you can go to London, Oxford and other sights that you wouldn't visit with your family. My favourite evening was the mocktails and paintball.

We have a nice, funny teacher. Joanna teaches us very well, we have learned a lot of English. My English is much better than before I came here because I went to other summer camps in Spain but there were only Spanish people so I only spoke in English with the teachers. But in More than English I speak English to real English people and put my English in practice. For example, when go to a shop I talk with the shopkeeper and she responds to me. It's difficult but I can do it! In one week you are accustomed to talking in English.

For get Ahead I did football and tennis, I really liked it. I played these sports when I was a kid, the teachers were so funny and they play with you.

As for the food, the food is so different because in Spain we eat much later and here we eat so early. So, sometimes I need a snack later. My favourite food was chicken kiev. Next year I would to have more meat, like steak.

I would like to come again, but next time I want to come for 3 or 4 weeks!

Campus.
For three weeks I lived on a beautiful campus with a large sports ground and a swimming pool. From our dormitories it took a two minute walk to our classrooms. Depending on the weather, we often spend our breaks outside.
Accommodation.
Our dormitories are really large. I share my room with five other girls. It would be better if there were wardrobes. In my opinion the bathrooms could be cleaner, but it is understandable that you cannot keep everything clean when there are 30 girls to shower, brush their teeth and etc.
Food.
Our breakfast always consists of typical English foods like scrambled eggs and bacon. For lunch and dinner we often have international foods sometimes very spicy, curry or tortilla wraps, sometimes pasta with tomato and olives. For me as a vegan, it took a while to make the stuff understand what I can eat and what I can't. But after a few days I received amazing food.
Core English.
My core English lessons have probably been the best lessons I have ever had. They were different, because we talked about topics like self actualization, sustainability and meditation. In other words things they could help us to improve our life quality. We had lots of fun with our teacher Jay while we were collecting ideas for film projects, poems, stories and discussions.
Get ahead.
I chose Shakespeare as my get ahead option. Four times a week we discovered the dark, medieval world of Macbeth. We spent our time with reading, watching, acting and the interpretation of the play, I really enjoyed it.
International experience. The experience I made with people from all around the world is an experience I will never forget. I was able to talk to students with a total of 16 nationalities and make friends with many of them. We will definitely stay in contact with each other.
All in all. I hope I have the opportunity to come back next year, because those three weeks I spent in MTE summer school are unforgettable.

On this course I like the people, I think it's nice.

I like all the activities, my favourite was the cocktails night. We didn't win but we liked it anyway. My Get Ahead option is tennis and I like my teacher and he's good at tennis and is kinda and patient.

I like the room and my roommates are nice, even though I came later they made me feel welcome.

I like the food but I would prefer to have two options. My favourite meal was chilli with rice.

The lessons were nice because we talked about real things and did debates. We talked about traditional foods from our country and it was interesting. I feel my confident speaking English and I have learned some new things.

Summer school

More Than English is a summer school in England which is designed to make boys and girls learn English in different ways, such as, but not limited to, different activities.

One of the advantages of this campus is the fact that you can meet people coming from different nationalities. All the way from Poland to Brazil. It gives you the chance to create friendships and to learn about different countries and traditions.

As for the food, it's not to my taste but I like the breakfast. I would prefer if there were two food options everyday so if you don't like one meal you can have the other.

Furthermore, the activities are very fun and vivacious, for example, today I’m very excited because in the afternoon we’ll do paintball. Doing all of these different activities gives you the possibility to use English in different ways and I believe it’s very helpful if you want to learn a language.

I like the activities, my favorite was bubble football. I like going swimming, playing tennis and archery.

I like the barbecues but I would like to have soup for dinner everyday.

I like my room but I want more boys in my room. I think 4 or 5 is best.

My favorite excursion was London because it was interesting and fun.

My teacher is fantastic.

Summer school

Let’s start with the amazing campus! Imagine living in a palace with huge gardens, a swimming pool and rooms. As for the accommodation, I loved my bedroom! It was huge and there were views of the land. Plus, the house parents were so kind!

As for the English lessons, they were fantastic! The teacher, Joanna, is good! Everyday we write a text: reviews, articles, essays. What I learnt is really going to help me with school work back in Russia.

I really liked the Get Ahead options. I chose the business course and golf. I have never played golf before and trying something new was fantastic. Another big plus about More Than English is the mix of nationalities. I met other teenagers from Brazil, Ukraine, Italy, France, Spain..

I have never been in summer school before. We had a lot of exams in Russia. All in all, more than English was the perfect chance for me to use my English. Finally, I’m going back home with a new ambition. I want to be a businessman.
