Susan T

I am a teacher of English as a foreign language. I have been a home stay teacher for over 20 years. I plan every lesson for each student so it is tailored to meet their goals and objectives. Outside lessons, there are lots of other opportunities to speak and hear English, from meal times to meeting my friends and family to shopping in Newbury. Before I became an English teacher, I was a teacher in a secondary school.

About the teacher’s accommodation

I live in a village called Woolton Hills, south west of the city of Newbury in the southern county of Berkshire. My home is a four bedroom, modern, detached house. There is a large garden to enjoy in summer. The village is situated amidst attractive countryside, with woods and hills and small, old villages.

About the local area

Woolton Hills is a small village with a small shop, a pub and a church. It is a short bus ride or car journey to the attractive town of Newbury. The town has all modern amenities and a railway station with good connections. There are regular markets, a racecourse, a theatre and a cinema.
You can visit the city of Oxford to see the ancient university with its Gothic architecture, explore the museums and hire a punt to go on the river.
Windsor is another town to visit where you can see the historical castle and enjoy the excellent shops and eating places.
A day trip to London to see all the attractions is also very convenient. There is a frequent train service and the journey is 60 minutes. Locally, there are a number of stately homes and beautiful gardens to visit.
