My wife (Rosangela) and I have found homestay teaching to be a very rewarding experience and through it have made many new friends around the World. While being a lot of fun, it is also an incredibly effective way to learn or improve your English. If you stay with us you get not just one but two highly qualified teachers who will give you a structured course tailored specifically to your needs and level. You will get feedback on progress throughout the course and an end of course report evaluating your skills and areas to develop.
It is also a fabulous opportunity to see London with the benefit of our advice and guidance (by arrangement).
Our interests include travel, languages (of course! ). We both speak Portuguese and Spanish. I can do a little bit of French and German) and cultures, exercise (in the gym, walking, cycling), history, the guitar, politics, design, reading, investments ….and many other things.
We have an excellent quality double room suitable for singles or couples with an en suite bathroom and its own door to the street giving extra privacy and independence. In addition, for family groups or pairs we have a double and a single room each with shared bathroom.
High speed internet, TV with cable, mini fridge, shared use of the kitchen and garden.
Family groups are very welcome. We can take group of 4 (or 5 at a pinch).
These prices are for the double room with ensuite bathroom and its own door to the street. We can accept two sharers in the same room for a small additional charge - this works out to be the most economical method. For families we can make a special offer including the room upstairs.
Lessons can be typically 3-5 hours per day, week days only.
We can cater for Business English and academic English, including preparation for exams such as IELTS
We live in a lovely four-bedroomed, Victorian house in West London (Zone 2).
The local area is a typical residential area that borders Shepherd’s Bush, Hammersmith and Chiswick. It offers plenty of shopping at Westfield (the largest shopping mall in Europe) and local bars, restaurants and coffee shops on Chiswick High street.
A bus or tube can take you into the West End of London (e.g. Buckingham Palace) in 20-40 minutes for all the attractions of London. We are always on hand to advise and discuss places to go.
