Our students


LK2 September. 2022

My favourite thing about my stay is that I actually learnt new things, and now I'm much more confident when speaking English. Being away from my parents has somehow forced me to consider that I am more mature after this experience.


LK2, September 2022

I like a lot this experience because everyone is so kind. The host family was very good and I hope that other new students will have it. I liked all the activities because I've known a new country and culture.

I've been able to use English in real life situations, and the English people are very nice and kind The teachers were really kind, and also our host mother


September 2022

Favourite bit: I think it would have to be how I have more vocabulary. And i have improved my confidence with English. It has been one of the best experiences.

“The family was great, they were really nice and funny. They talked everytime with us and told us stories. They always offered to give us a ride to the Strand if we missed the bus. They were really considerate with us and took care of us really well.”

"This 'Hello! Exmouth' local business run by a very professional and friendly company of people has gone from strength. In the last 5 years, not only for providing employment for office staff, more than 20 teachers, 10 activity leaders and numerous hosts but by promoting Exmouth all over Europe as the truly amazing town that is is, and bringing thousands of foreign students to our town, boosting our economy. Hello! Exmouth are fine ambassadors for the town of Exmouth and are very deserving of a nomination for Exmouth business awards."

Spanish student - 2017

"Today I am sad because I have to leave your home and Exmouth, I don't want to arrive in Spain! It was a new experience for me and I have spent possibly one of the best experiences of my life. Thanks for all, for taking care of me, for your hospitality. I'm a lucky person to have stayed in your home."
