EIC People

It is the people at English in Chester who make our students’ experience here so rich and rewarding. Our students, group leaders, homestay hosts, teachers, and staff together make a community. Here we introduce you to some of these wonderful people.



Kate lives in a three bedroom town house near the city centre. She is semi-retired and enjoys sport, tennis, yoga, reading, the theatre and languages. The student rooms are good sized doubles, very comfortable and well decorated with good storage.

Kate says: "I really enjoy accommodating students and showing them around the local area. My experience of living and working abroad gives me the knowledge to provide a great home for students, I am prepared to help them in any way I can. I have 3 grown up children who live away from home but they often come to meet the students."
