I went to Westbourne Academy in 2017. It was my first time abroad. Later on I’ve been back to the UK and Canada for English Course however Westbourne Academy is so special for me. It was the best days of my life. I’m still talking with my host family who’s my second family. They will come to Turkey and I will visit them in Germany (they moved to Germany). I hope I am able to come to Westbourne Academy and Bournemouth. With love to my School and dream city.

One of the most incredible experience I've had in my life. When I decided to give up on some things to enjoy this journey, I never imagined meeting such incredible places and people. In addition to the cultural exchange, expansion of the English language skills, self-knowledge, on my way I found soul brothers/sisters that I will carry in my heart forever!!! Thank you, dear friends, for all the beautiful moments. Love you and miss you a lot!

I’m Huju Lee from South Korea. I’ve been taking a General English Course in Westbourne Academy for 5 months. Actually I hadn’t learnt English before I came to England. To be honest, I could say just a few words at first and I was worried about learning English. But the teachers in Westbourne Academy are experts in teaching English so I could get used to talking in English easily. Now I can talk with my friends from many countries well. In addition, we travel sometimes in the UK to make nice experiences. Anyway the time I’ve spent in Bournemouth was absolutely amazing and I’ll never forget the memories when I hung out with my friends and learnt English.

Based on my own experience, travelling abroad to another country to live and learn another language, is by far one of the best investments I have ever made for myself! I am happy to have chosen Westbourne Academy for developing my English communicative skills. I truly enjoyed every second of my lessons, as well as my teachers who were always with their best attitude and humour towards our learning. During the course, my classmates and I explored the city through amazing trips and activities that were held by the school every weekend, which are memories that I will always remember! After 6 months, I can tell you that my English skills have improved dramatically! One of the best things about this school, is all the international people you get to meet from all around the world. Honestly, the friendships I have made were unforgettable and beyond of what I was expecting. It’s amazing that while I was learning another language, I also improved my cultural knowledge about different countries. Furthermore, I would highly recommend you to study at Westbourne Academy, I am certain, that it will be one of the greatest investments in your life.

I was studying at Westbourne Academy while the second lockdown period of 2020 happened. To be honest, I expected some difficulties before landing, at some points I had wished I had been in other global situations when the aeroplane took off, nevertheless, I don’t regret taking classes in this period nor in Westbourne academy. First, the technical installations and the faculty members eased the process of the first two insulation weeks with satisfying online classes. Second, after isolation, classes and personal interactions happened with some normality… I was able to meet and know incredible people from other cultures and countries because the school is open for students around the globe. As a result, I have improved my English hand in hand with my sociocultural skills. I have known amazing places that surround the city.
