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.


Lynne and David

Lynne and David live in a 3 bedroom semi-detached house in a very popular area of Chester.  They have 2  cats and enjoy walking, keeping fit, theatre, eating out and gardening. Lynne grows her own vegetables in her allotment. There is one double student room available with WiFi. 

Lynne and David say:

We would love to welcome you to our home in the beautiful city of Chester. We will do all we can to make your stay happy and comfortable. We lead a fairly quiet life. Ours is not a busy household, we have lots of time to speak to students in the evenings. 

Many students have enjoyed staying with Lynne and David, here is some of their feedback:

 I liked most the friendliness of my 'new family', conversations during breakfast and in the evening. Julia, Russia

Here Lynne and David answer some of our questions: 

What do you like about hosting students?

We love talking to students and learning about their culture, their homes and ways of life. We have found it a most fascinating experience. 

What are your favourite memories as a host?  

We loved taking our Russian student, Mikhail, (a Liverpool football supporter) on a tour of Anfield Stadium as it was very exciting for him. Our German student Frieda, also enjoyed the Christmas parade in Chester and it was lovely for her to see the Christmas lights being switched on. We enjoy seeing our students have British experiences.

Do you think your students' English language improves during their stay with you?

I hope so! We certainly have lovely long chats with them, and offer guidance when requested.
