Perfect for students who value the British cultural experience just as much as the English-language tuition, this course gives students the opportunity to combine English tuition with a personal interest or hobby.  You choose how many hours you would like for English lessons and how many  hours for cultural or outdoor activities with your teacher. We take great care to match you with a teacher who shares your interests.

Using the Homelingua Advanced Learning System we can deliver results and progress much faster than other study methods.

Yukiko – 25 years old from Japan

Bucksmore Homelingua student profiles

  • English level: A2 Elementary
  • Course: Culture course with flower arranging
  • Teacher: Andrea
  • Location: London

Yukiko wanted a course that combined English and her interest in tea and flowers. She studied on a 4 week English immersion and culture course with Andrea in London. The teacher, who used to own a florist’s, designed a customised course that taught the student about flower arranging and also traditional British afternoon tea.
