|At the EC Language School - Bristol|
We realize that every experience in life teaches us something once we evaluate its pros and cons. I asked my 4scA students to reflect on our week in Bristol (14th/20th April 2015) and point out its advantages and disadvantages.
While we were there, they went to EC Language School and had native-speakers teaching them for 4 hours and 30 minutes every day, they lived with English host families, they visited Bristol in the afternoons, went to Bath and London at the weekend. They had plenty to tell once we were back.
In my questionnaire I also asked my students about the best and the worst moments, or what they liked and disliked (click here to see my questions). Here are some of their answers. On the whole all of them thought it was a great experience.

Our stay in Bristol was fantastic and very exciting. We visited three cities - Bristol, Bath and London – and many beautiful places. Lessons at EC Language School were interesting and fun. Our teachers were qualified and very nice. They were very good at capturing our attention and interest for several hours a day.
I would recommend this kind of experience because it is perfect for students who want to improve their English. It allows you to be in contact with a lot of English-speaking people and at school they teach you a lot of useful words and expressions.

|In London, at last!|
The most exciting moment? It was our meeting with the host family. I was so worried but they were so nice and kind to us! I had a great time with them. The hardest and most embarassing moment? It was when I met and tried to speak with Mary, a beautiful girl living in Bristol. I wished my English had been much, much better!
