We are Donna, John & Oscar the mad Spaniel x Collie dog! I have hosted Students for many years and am also a foster carer. My husband John works full time as a Signwriter/ Installer. We live in Worthing 5 minutes from the beach ! We like countryside walks, seaside walks, cooking & card games. John is a keen All Blacks fan as he was born in New Zealand. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
I have an extra bed and can accommodate 2 friends in the same room if required.
Only student if desired although we are willing to take 2 friends if desired also.
ONE HOUR ENGLISH LESSON INCLUDED FROM MONDAY TO FRIDAY + ACTIVITIES
A typical day can be tailored to your needs. I usually walk Oscar mid morning this is either at the beach or on one of many beautiful countryside walks we have in our area. If lessons are required we can fit these in before lunch or later in the day. Afternoons would be a good time to explore the local area. There are many interesting places to explore in our area. The city of Brighton is only half an hour away by bus or train. There you can find Brighton Pavillion, Brighton pier and many interesting museums . Worthing itself also has a pier and a beautiful coastline which you can explore by foot or cycle ( I have one you may borrow) .Arundel with its amazing castle is also only half an hour away by car or train. We usually eat around 7/8 pm and spend the evening relaxing maybe watching a movie or playing card games. John is also a keen chess fan if you fancy a game of chess!
Donna and John were very welcoming, I felt good since the first moment, like if I was part of the family. They are very nice, Donna asked me if everything was good, if I wasn’t bored but it was never the case because I did and I learnt a lot of things ! I learnt things such as the pronunciation of new sounds for me (I’m French), I also learnt phrasal verbs and English expressions. (very useful !) Donna knows how to adapt her lessons according to the English level. I also learnt many different things, for instance: John explained to me the rules of the cricket, I watched the classic English sitcom “Only fools and horses”. I cooked and ate traditional dishes and I loved them, therefore I will do it again at home ! Worthing is eclectic there are: the Channel, a swimming pool, museums, parks (with skateparks !), the pier with the seafront, a cinema, a theatre. Thanks to the Donna’s bike all those things are close to the home. At forty-five minutes in bus there is Brighton, a city with many different and interesting things such as the Brighton Palace Pier with rides, the Royal Pavilion (really worth it !), the Brighton museum, the Laines district (must see !)… The dog, Oscar is very funny and sweet. He was the last to accept me in the family… thirty seconds after I walk into his home.
I was really lucky to stay with Donna. Everytime she asked me if i was okay/ if there is something uncomfortable/ how was in school etc…. she always cared me with heart and be patient teaching and correcting my english written in a diary. It helped me A LOT I still have it at home and her miss your food - potato, beef, green bean ahah !
