  • I found people here are very friendly, which is so nice and when I need help they help a lot. The weather here has also been very nice. My host family is very nice here. They cook fresh food, which is very nice and they help me a lot when I ask. My host parents are very friendly and they have a very nice dog, which I like because I also have a dog. Read More
  • I found that English people are very polite when speaking to each other. They are also very helpful, particularly when I need directions and advice. My host family are very friendly; they said ‘My house is your house’, which made me feel very comfortable.  When I come home, they talk a lot with me, particularly at meal times.  They also play games, like monopoly, uno, cluedo and lots of other kids’ stuff – I enjoy this very much.

  • Another thing was that I felt so comfortable with my classmates here. I was able to be myself fully – not the Chilean teacher any more! We had some really funny moments in class together that made my stay more enjoyable. I think with it being a Christian school, it fosters a family atmosphere where everyone is important and respected. Every day was a happy day. It was nice to come here, even though I've been missing my family back home! Read More
  • When I thought about doing the language stay I talked with the agency and I told them that I would like to go to a small city. They showed me Christchurch and CELC and I loved it. I didn’t want to go to a big city like London because there are more Brazilian people there and I was running from Brazilian people J. I didn’t know that CELC was a Christian school and it was a good surprise for me. Read More
  • My experience here was unforgettable, so I would encourage other students to come! I learned more here about overcoming challenges and going outside of my comfort zone (for example, speaking English!!). The teachers here are very welcoming and accepting. They are very professional in what they do. They explain things well and understand our challenges when learning English. The directors are really good too. They are kind and very approachable.
