All targets reached…four weeks very, very intensive…. Executive Homestay accommodation was perfect (nice family, close to school 15 mins on foot). Excellent trainers…non-stop learning in a very friendly environment.

Milner College is so cool! I have met a lot of friendly students. Lessons are very interesting and good quality. Teachers and administration are very attentive for any questions, doubts. Perth is so perfect to live, weather, people…it’s exactly what I was searching for…. The choice of General English and Cambridge is a good mix…thanks…good advice. My homestay is the best, Mimma is so lovely…. she cooks so well.
Really thank you so much for your advice, your service and especially your professionalism. It’s so rare that in transaction someone can understand you so good…. Thank you so much!

Jean-Jacques Morard

Après plus d’une année de cours, sur le modèle du business lunch, les participants sont unanimes: la méthode d’enseignement répond totalement à nos besoins et à nos attentes. Nous nous sentons plus à l’aise, nous avons réussi à passer outre certaines réticences émotionnelles de nous exprimer en anglais, nous avons eu l’occasion de remettre en pratique nos connaissances scolaires et les adapter à un usage plus professionnel de la langue. Fort de cette expérience très positive, nous avons renouvelé notre confiance à The Language House pour toute l’année 2017.

Yes, we highly recommend The Language House as an ideal solution for companies that need to improve their English communication skills.

I really enjoy my English lessons with The Language House. They are interesting, fun and lively and I get to work on my spoken English. I feel much more comfortable speaking English. I know I still make mistakes. But if I have to socialise in English or moderate a forum in English, I don’t have the panic and stress I had before. I actually look forward to using my English when I have the opportunity.

I want to thank you. I’m home now for 3 weeks and I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have lived this experience. My months in Byron Bay were literally the best ones of my life! I’ve met so many people from all around the world, discovered so many things and grown up so much. In addition to that, I’ve also really improved my English: I’ve passed the CAE! Thank you for your help to organize the trip of my life and for your advice (NOT being an au-pair was definitely the best one, I would have missed so many surf sessions!).

Bertrand Pasche

I would like to tell you how much I appreciated our English for Lunch lessons over the past three years. I really enjoyed the lunches and I made a lot of progress. I am more comfortable with my English in work and social situations. I never imagined when we started that I would become fluent in English and that I could manage meetings and video conferences in English and follow English language films. It’s fantastic.

Notre expérience avec The Language House s’est admirablement bien déroulée. D’abord sollicité sans avoir de véritable autre projet que d’envoyer notre fils de 16 ans se perfectionner en anglais, nous avons été pris en charge avec grand professionnalisme par Monsieur Garry Littman. Il a bien compris notre projet portant sur une année scolaire. Monsieur Littman a également saisi l’attention que nous portions non-seulement à la formation de notre fils mais aussi à la sécurité dont ont besoin les parents d’un enfant mineur.

Nous avons été conseillés de manière déterminée et avec une très grande écoute de nos exigences en termes de qualité de formation et de contexte de la famille d’accueil. Bien qu’il n’ait pas toujours acquiescé à nos nombreuses demandes, il a nous a guidé de manière sincère en visant le meilleur compromis entre études, confort et sécurité pour le séjour de notre fils.

Tant l’école choisie (Global Village), que la destination (Vancouver, Canada), ou encore la logistique et les conseils liés à ce séjour linguistique à l’étranger pour notre fils ont été minutieusement réfléchis. Garry Littman a démontré beaucoup d’empathie à notre égard et nous a considérablement orientés dans nos choix.

Quant à l’école à Vancouver, Global Village, c’est au dire de notre fils la meilleure de celles dont il a pu parler avec ses amis sur place. Global Village propose des cours à option très variés et adaptés au niveau de chaque élève, ainsi que des programmes d’animation et de loisirs aussi bien en soirée que pendant les week-ends. Et à Global Village, pas question de parler une autre langue que l’anglais pendant les cours, pendant les activités extrascolaires ou dans l’enceinte de l’école, même pendant les pauses!

Nous recommandons avec plaisir et sans réserve The Language House.

This is the second time I have turned to The Language House for English lessons. Trainer Garry Littman makes lessons challenging and enjoyable. He is the best English trainer I have had. We meet each week in a café. The coffee and English ambiance is relaxed and we laugh a lot. In our lessons we discuss a wide range of subjects from Antonioni to selfies which is both stimulating and full of interesting new English cultural references. I never thought I would say that I look forward to my English lessons.

Hans Flückiger

My time in London was well worth it. I sense a big difference in my confidence and fluency in English. I can explain myself better in presentations and meetings without having to think too much about my language. The teachers were excellent. I had small group courses with between 3 and 5 participants and also private lessons. I also visited the London Stock Exchange, Metals Exchange and new Docklands with my private teacher. My Executive Homestay family was very friendly and close to the school. Overall it was a successful and rewarding experience. My thanks to The Language House for the choice and organisation of this training course.

I would like to thank you again for the English training we had together. The aim for me was to improve my English and to feel more comfortable when I speak. This goal was fully completed. I have really appreciated the interactivity in the classroom with the role plays and way we approached different topics and subjects. You always found the right word to motivate us. You definitively focus on your students and you adapt your training according to their needs. You are definitively the best teacher I have ever had.

Thank you for conducting the Business English writing classes for our team. The sessions were very well prepared and they focused on the most important issues for us. The use of our own writing samples made all comments practical for our immediate use. You adjusted the teaching very well to the skill level of the class and your friendly approach made the comments easy to accept.

I am delighted with my stay at Worcester. Lessons are very interesting. I have this week a one-to-one lesson with Jill. She thinks I have a good basis in English but with my strong French accent it is difficult to understand me. She teaches me sentence stress, weak forms, linking sounds etc….

The training centre and staff were very professional. The private lessons were excellent and more efficient than the small group classes. You can’t expect miracles, but I felt that my English improved considerably in two weeks and I now have greater awareness of my use of English language.

The accommodation was fantastic. They really looked after me. Overall, it was a very positive experience.

Christophe Emonet

The accommodation was great. I had a perfect time with the family; they made me feel at ease and showed great interest in me. I had a lot of conversations with them which helped me a lot to improve my understanding and fluency. My room was very comfortable and I got everything I needed. The school was only 20 minutes on foot from my Homestay.

The London School of English is very comfortable and well-equipped. Everything was perfectly organised from day one. The Young Business English course helped me to improve my business English with a lot of helpful vocabulary, different topics and development situations.

The BEC Higher exam preparation course was perfectly focused on the exam which helped me to be prepared and to know exactly what I had to do on the exam day. Moreover, we did some mock exams to be properly prepared. My teachers were very friendly, highly qualified and strongly contributed to my improvement with a lot of helpful advice. The amount of homework was reasonable. To sum up, my English is improved in many ways. I will never forget my time there and the different people that I met.

I enjoy my English lessons with The Language House. My teacher is friendly and amusing. He quickly grasped my needs and adapts the lesson content accordingly. I have learnt not only much vocabulary, but also and more importantly many English cultural references. I have gained more confidence in speaking English and I hope I will be able to add it as a working language soon.

I think I improved a lot my English because before I was so afraid to talk in English if someone asked me something in English. Now it’s not a problem for me to talk in English or understand a English speaker!

I took the courses 30 lessons per week in a small class with 8-12 students of different nationalities. We learned, spoke, played games, watched movies…a lot of different activities to learn English.

My homestay was a young family. Because of that we had a really good time and a lot of fun together. It was a really really good family.

My intensive two weeks of professional English courses in Canterbury was a very good strategy for me to improve my English. I was looking for a personalized training centre with private lessons and small groups and a program that related of my language level and my professional managerial needs. It was exactly that. Two intensive weeks went by very quickly. I recommend future clients do the networking activities. Not only is it good for your English, but you can discover this beautiful city and its friendly people. The CLT team is flexible and professional. The organization is managed by a master, Mr John Miles (managing director of CLT). I was hosted by a lovely family in a small town close to Canterbury.

I finished my trip: It was amazing. I really want to stay, I love Australia and Perth.
I travelled a lot around of Perth. I went to the Pinnacles, Wave Rock, Swan Valley and lot of beaches.
The family was very nice with me. The school was great. I adored the activities with school and I think I had a very good teacher. I think I improved my English, because before I couldn’t say something but now I can do some sentences with some mistakes. So, I have to learn more and I don’t stop to speak. And the school was great to meet people come from everywhere. Everyone was beautiful and I’ll never forget them. My friends become like a family. I miss all, my life there, my friends and my host family.

About two years ago I got in touch with The Language House because I needed to improve my English and I wanted to study a couple of weeks in a school abroad during summertime. Thanks to Garry Littman’s good advice I spent three marvellous weeks in an excellent school in Cork, Ireland. After this I was even more motivated to progress in English. Garry Littman proposed that I take some private lessons. For more than three years now we have been working together on a regular basis. At the moment, we are focussing in particular on legal English. Garry Littman is a challenging and stimulating teacher and since we have been working together my progress has been constant. I can recommend The Language House to anyone who is looking for a tailor-made and quality English course.

I realize every day that it was a very good choice to study here. There are few students and I like the style of teaching. David and his wife are excellent and their way of teaching seems to me really efficient. I am fully immersed in my studies the main goal is already reached. Thanks.

My professional skills were in demand but my career options were limited by my lack of English communication skills. I chose The Language House as my English language partner. It has been a most rewarding and successful relationship and much more than just learning to communicate confidently and fluently in English. It has opened doors to a new culture, information, ideas, humour, literature, travel and professional relationships. The Language House has organised language courses for me in Geneva and immersion programmes in English-speaking countries. I have studied in Kensington in London, in the cathedral city of Canterbury and in the countryside of Wales. Each course has been superbly organised, and the quality of training has exceeded my expectations. However, my most enjoyable courses have been English for Lunch here in Geneva – private courses in English over lunch with The Language House director Garry Littman. I do not hesitate in recommending the services of The Language House.

London was a great experience; useful, professional, tough, in one word: Wonderful. Now the time comes to maintain and continue to improve….

Daniela Bertossa

What do Scots have in common with pirates? Jamie Oliver with the Swiss family Robinson? How are Eddie Izard and Louis C.K related? And Skippy the Kangaroo with The Clockword Orange? N-words with bees? National anthems and Australian morals? Road rage and lyrebirds? These are some of the ingredients we used to compose the menu of the English for Lunch, one and half hour, every week, under Garry’s attentive, curious and supporting supervision. I improve each time and even if I’m still not a chef, hopefully I’ll become at least a decent cook…and not a fat lady.

Australia is absolutely amazing and Byron Bay even more! I am having a real great time here with the sun, the ocean and the sharks…(joke).

Firstly, I would like to say thank you for the organization of my trip in Sydney. Everything was perfect from beginning to the end. Sydney is really a beautiful city and SELC school has a very good location. Not too far from the city center and just next to Bondi beach. It’s a wonderful place to practice sport and sightseeing. In addition to the location, SELC is very a good school to learn English. I met lots of different people from different countries, which I spoke a lot about many things and I spent my time to study and to visit that beautiful country. They were a good organization at school. We had plenty of time to study hard and after the school they were lots of activities.

My target was to achieve my FCE. It wasn’t easy for me because I didn’t used to talk in English every minute but after one week it was better. The first three months I had General English and it was good for me to remember all grammar and vocabulary I needed for my preparation of my exam. I worked hard to have the good level. Of course, sometimes General English was a little boring because it depended on student’s motivation but it was necessary if I wanted to improve my English. After I did the FCE preparation course and I really enjoyed working faster and harder. My classmates were younger than me and we had lots of fun together. Sometimes it wasn’t easy to stay concentrate but we had good teachers, who gave us the desire to learn. After ten weeks hard working I passed my FCE. I’m so happy because I improved so much in five and a half months. I will never forget my trip in Sydney and in Australia. You helped me to have a good start. I really appreciate your help and your availability.

English for lunch was the type of course that I was looking for: private lessons, friendly environment (not a classroom) and easy to adapt with my job timetable. I have to admit that I had some apprehensions before my first lesson. I was about to have lunch with someone that I could consider as a stranger, as I only had a quick phone call with him several days before. A 90 minute lunch: it can be a long time when you have to speak in a foreign language, with someone who you do not know at all, and who will evaluate you.
But the experience is worth it! And learning becomes easy and motivating when you have a passionate teacher like Garry. He is interested in everything (and if not, he is good at pretending!). Even if you can be frightened to find subjects to speak about during your lesson, you will soon notice that an interesting conversation often comes from a basic observation/event. One day, I remember that the restaurant had a waitress who did not really pay attention to our request and forgot some basic rules of her job. Thanks to this situation, we had a very interesting debate on how important customer relationships are in every business.

Sorry for the late news but I’ve got a lot of things to do. Perth is a little busy! But it’s good! Anyway, I was also thinking to come back to Milner in one year or more to try to pass the TESOL! My teacher Rick gave me the taste to try this course. It could be really interesting I think. It will help me for my future, because up to now I didn’t have any idea for my future career. It can be a good start. My family is so lovely. I love living with them, everything is perfect!

The two-week immersion course exceeded my expectations. I improved my confidence and grasp of English. I’m waiting for the next opportunity to go back. I especially enjoyed the richness of the small group synergy. We shared different cultural perspectives and our professional backgrounds and experience.

English for Lunch helps me use English with greater fluency and confidence. The courses are tailor-made and carefully oriented to my needs. The feedback from each lunch helps me to correct my mistakes and reinforces new language structures, vocabulary, idioms and expressions. The ‘real-life’ lunch environment is much more interesting and lively than a classroom.

The training centre was very professional and the teachers very interesting. I was impressed by their wide culture and knowledge. It was possible to talk about sports, politics, entertainment, travel, music, theatre and a lot of different other things. The one-to-one lessons were good but very hard. It was not possible to have a bit of rest. There is pressure on you to speak and think in English at every moment, every day! The mix of small group courses and private training was a good combination. My Executive Homestay family was friendly and welcoming. I had contact in the morning for breakfast, in the evening for dinner three times a week and sometimes in the weekend. I would like thank The Language House for the good organisation and if I need more information about language training I won’t hesitate to call you.

I really liked the idea of having two weeks in London and two weeks in the countryside in Wales. The course was indeed very intensive and gave me the opportunity to improve my speaking skills thanks to the excellent teachers in the one to one sessions. It was in all a very rich experience, meeting different people and sharing with people from different counties. The accommodation was perfect especially Trebinshun House for atmosphere with its unique character. I strongly recommend this executive language training.


Séverine Monod

The homestay is really good. Beautiful house, pool, very good food! Everything is perfect!

I started my Cambridge course 4 weeks ago.The teachers are very good and it’s a good way to improve my English. We have homework to do everyday, but we also have time to enjoy Australia in the week-end! I really love Perth! The city in not too big, so it’s pretty quiet and everybody is very friendly. There are a lot of things to do and to visit and many places to go out at night!! The weather is also very nice and the beaches around are beautiful. I went to Rottnest Island a few weeks ago. It was amazing (I think they’re the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen). There are also many activities to do with the school! It’s cheap and very fun!

I’m really enjoying my time here and I think it’s a nice destination for students who like beaches, sun and quiet city!! I hope I will like the east coast as much as the west coast! I’ll let you know at the end of my travel! Thanks a lot for everything you’ve done for me!

Des leçons d’anglais palpitantes comme une pièce policière –

Mon jour, c’est le vendredi. A midi pile, je quitte la rédaction du “Temps”, au pas de course souvent, au grand étonnement de mes collègues. Aurais-je rendez-vous avec Isabelle Huppert? Ou Peter Brook? Ou mon psychanalyste? Non. Mieux que cela: je déjeune avec Garry Littman, mon professeur d’anglais, qui a inventé un concept idéal pour le journaliste très pris que je suis: une leçon hebdomadaire en tête-à-tête, dans un bistrot au bord du Rhône, acccompagné par une viande tendre et un verre de vin désinhibant. Deux heures de conversation sans complexes, sur toutes sortes de sujets, de la course aux élections présidentielles aux Etats-Unis au dernier roman de Philip Roth, de l’éducation de mes enfants à la dernière pièce de Pinter, sujet qui m’intéresse de près: je suis critique de théâtre.

Ces leçons d’anglais sont uniques, bien plus efficaces et intenses que les cours que j’ai pu suivre naguère, à raison de deux heures par semaine, dans telle ou telle école prestigieuse. Garry Littman a ce talent: il n’écoute pas seulement son étudiant, notant dans un carnet ses erreurs, pour les corriger ensuite dans un rapport détaillé qu’il envoie par mail après chaque séance; il personnalise la leçon, l’adapte aux besoins de son interlocuteur.

Souvent, nous simulons des interviews avec une star de la scène ou du grand écran: je suis le journaliste, Garry Littman devient Al Pacino. C’est un jeu où chaque mot compte: je transpire, je m’enthousiasme, je me concentre comme si j’étais vraiment en face d’une star, ce qui stupéfie souvent nos voisins de table. Il faut dire que Garry Littman est un acteur talentueux. Le professeur a cette qualité: il donne envie d’apprendre, de se surpasser. English for lunch est ainsi aussi intense que la meilleure des pièces. Avec ce plaisir en plus: j’en suis l’acteur.

Went to the Gold coast for shopping, I went to Tabulam for Easter holiday with my home-family, camping in the bush, really fun!! And for sure: going to the beach almost every day, enjoy the sun and the beautiful places, which you can find only here!! I wish never have to come back in Switzerland! But…I finish school next week and after I’m going to take 2 weeks for travel a bit!
I want to go to the Greet Barrier reef and to Sydney, so I have to organise everything! I’m super excited!!
I really want to thank you for your help, both schools went beautifully, I meet a lot of different people and I really improve my German and English level.

The lunches with my personal trainer were always very lively, and it was possible to speak about all kinds of subjects with pleasure. The immediate feedback with mistakes and suggestions helped me and made it possible to correct my gaps more quickly. This kind of course is for people who want to progress quickly, and especially at their own pace.

I always thought that my English was rubbish! But it’s true, after few weeks here I can say that I speak English quite fluently. The only problem is that in London they speak so quickly and it’s hard to catch everything. But anyway, I love the accents.

The school was very nice, well situated and the teachers were friendly and the most important thing is that they have typical English sense of humour, which I like.

I really enjoyed my time there and now I concentrate my efforts on finding a job here. It’s tricky work…. Thank you for everything.

English for Lunch is the most enjoyable and effective form of English training I have taken. I find it an excellent method to practice and perform in English and increase my language confidence and fluency. It is a space in my busy life to enjoy the richness and complexity of the English language and exchange ideas and discuss a wide range of subject.

Just a few words to say that I am very happy with my stay… Cambridge is a fantastic city, the school and teachers are very good and the International Legal English Certificate course extremely interesting. I have been placed in the advanced group, so my morning class is challenging
My two Homestay hosts are very nice. The internet problem has been resolved and last but not least we are having a nice weather! Thanks again for your help.

The four weeks of English immersion was a very good experience.

I heard English day and night! It was difficult at first when you don’t speak, but I was really surprised how quickly I could understand and communicate during my stay Now I’m more confident and I am very satisfied.

I enjoyed the courses, teachers and host family.

Thank you for your help and organization of my stay in Worcester.
