      Malvern House found me a host family and it was just amazing. The house was in zone 2 (just few minutes from my school) in a very quiet and safe area. My host family helped a lot with my adaptation and also with my English.

      I’m sharing a house with 4 people from different countries and it’s being a great experience to learn about their countries. We have become a “multinational family” in the house and I’m enjoying each second of this experience.

      I live in the south east of London in Turnpike Lane. I stay in a host family. The nice thing is to speak all the time English and learn about British tradition.In Malvern House the teachers was very nice and helped me a lot. I am really happy for choosing Malvern House, the teacher, the school and the staff, everybody was kindly. London is alive and never boring. I studied Graphic design in Belgium and London is a great city for Art and Design.

      Studying English at Malvern House has been very exciting but what I appreciated most were the social programs, because they allowed me to put into practice the things that I learned in the school and in the meantime have fun in the exciting city of London. I could make friends right away and share my experience with students from around the world.
