Living with a British family is a great way to improve your English while studying in Manchester. You’ll be practising your English at home as well as experiencing British culture. We try to match all students’ requirements to a family profile and all students receive a warm and friendly welcome in homes which have been carefully chosen by the school staff. Naturally it is not the same as living at home so students will have to adapt to life in England. Students will be expected to live as one of the family and this could sometimes involve helping the family with simple chores, like keeping your bedroom tidy, setting the table or clearing away the dishes after meals. Many students feel like and become one of the family and keep in touch with their host families for many years after their stay.

Lo más positivo de vivir en residencia, es el compartir apartamento (zonas comunes)con estudiantes de otras nacionalidades, ya que hablas y escuchas inglés durante todo el día, por lo que se práctica mucho el listening y el speaking.
Lo bueno de Manchester es su oferta futbolera,y que esta muy cerca de otras ciudadess como son Liverpool,York,Chester...
La posibilidad de saber con antelación si va más gente durante las mismas fechas y mismo destino / Encontrarme con españoles de diferentes partes y conocer a gente, una vez allí, de diferentes países
Manchester al no ser muy grande es una ciudad muy acogedora. La escuela está muy bien, en pleno centro, y allí los profesores te ayudan con todo lo que necesites.
Pues lo más positivo sin duda es la mejora en el nivel de inglés, y también la experiencia vivida.
