I like swimming, the London trip, “Go Ape” and Julie dancing at the pub!  Tennis with Jean and John.  I like the exercises… (English File listening, speaking, grammar and reading)…. on the computer and Practical English.  I love Nutella!

Recommendation from a German couple who stayed with us:

My husband and I spent two unforgettable weeks with Julie Wren and her family in Rolvenden Layne. We felt every single day of our language holiday right at home and never occurred to me to say goodbye to a resort so hard!

Julie gave us from the first minute the feeling to be welcome. She is an enthusiastic cook and serves as huge as tasty portions. Every time she answered our questions and we had many interesting conversations with her, her husband Tim and daughter Julie, who are at home at weekends. In the evening we often sat together in the cosy living room of the family and watched a DVD movie out of their huge collection. Julie cut her lessons exactly to our needs: we read and heard many different texts, answered questions and were dealing with all aspects of grammar and the correct pronunciation. I learned a lot, now speak much better English than before and trust me a lot more.

The house of the Wren family is a newly renovated farmhouse from the last century about five kilometres outside of Tenterden: This is why we were very glad we had a rental car. So we were able to take many trips in the area: We visited the beautiful towns Rye and Tenterden, spent time at sea in Camber Beach and Beachy Head (near Eastbourne), visited Battle Abbey, Bodiam and Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst and Canterbury and the Outlet-Center in Ashford. It was great, that Julie directed the school hours according to our desires: She taught us when it was raining outside, so we stayed mostly dry in our undertakings.

Our room was functional and clean. We shared the family bathroom with Julie and Tim, but that was no problem at all. The family plans to rebuild the to their house belonging stables to two "en suite" guest rooms. We didn't use the outdoor pool because of the bad weather.

Conclusion: This individual language tour is ideal for those who want to improve their English language skills and want to have a lot of contact with an English family at the same time. It was certainly not my last time there!

Love,
Antje
