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.


Rebecca and Ian

Rebecca and Ian live in a 4 bedroomed house in a popular area of Chester. Rebecca is a hospital Ward Manager and enjoys walking, reading, music and concerts. Ian is an Events Supervisor. He enjoys sports and puzzles. Rebecca's daughter lives at home and attends the local school. Ian's 2 daughters are both students and they visit at weekends and in the school holidays. The family have a West Highland Terrier dog called Minty. The student room has an en-suite bathroom.

The couple say:

"We want all our students to feel safe and welcome here in our household, we always offer support and advice to make their stay an enjoyable experience."

What do you like about hosting students?

As homestay hosts for the last nine years, It has been a pleasure to accommodate students from all age groups and nationalities. It is very rewarding for us as hosts to see the students develop their skills and confidence in English language.
Being there for help and guidance makes us feel we are making our students feel safe and supported at all times.

Tell us about one of your favourite experiences you have had with a student?

One student in particular, a charming gentleman from Rome named Paulo, attended our family birthday party which he loved being involved in. He was the life and soul of the party and everyone had great affection for him. It was a wonderful evening.
