The experience with Active English gave me what I was looking for and much more. I improved my English a lot and visited a gorgeous country. I did lovely walks around Alyth, a lovely village in a beautiful and wild place. We visited Edinburgh, St Andrews, Dundee and the beaches of the east coast of Scotland. English classes with Lucy were always very interesting, never boring and very useful.

Lucy and her husband Tom are welcoming and very friendly. I would recommend this experience to all who wish to improve their English and want to discover a beautiful land full of surprises.

Aprende Inglés con éxito, intensa y rápidamente, viviendo y estudiando en la casa de tu profesor

We loved our visit to Active English. When you live with your teacher you can make so much progress. And you can learn about life in Scotland. The classes are exactly what you need. We wanted to know more grammar and also to talk all the time in English. We are two friends who wanted to learn together. You have classes in the morning and can visit the local area in the afternoon and at weekends. We went to Edinburgh, Dundee and Perth and to the beaches on the coast.

I am a 54 year old lady and I've never been twice in the same place.
But, in the Easter holiday, I went to Scotland for the second time, to Alyth where I have already been. I needed to go back to Active English because I felt  that I could get so much more from Lucy and the unique experience of Active English. This experience has given me so much more than I expected. Thanks Lucy (lovely, patient and passionate teacher) and to her lovely , friendly and funny husband Tom. I would recommend this experience to everyone who would like to improve their English. While you are learning you are also walking, visiting and experiencing Scottish life. Brilliant!

Mi chiamo Daniela,ho 46 anni

Ho sempre desiderato imparare l'inglese ma per mille motivi e mille scuse non l'ho mai fatto.

Grazie alla mia amica Anna che era già stata l'anno scorso con Active English mi ha coinvolta e così abbiamo trascorso le vacanze di Pasqua in Scozia ad Alyth, una bellissima settimana con persone fantastiche in un posto bellissimo.

Mi sono sentita in un ambiente famigliare caloroso,  ho camminato in posti stupendi. Lucy e suo marito sono veramente speciali e accoglienti. Le lezioni di inglese si svolgono in casa in modo molto confortevole e devo dire che ho imparato parecchio . La pazienza di tutti nell'aiutarmi a capire e ad arricchire il mio vocabolario è stata incredibile. Quindi si parla tutto il giorno non ci si limita solo alle ore di lezione ma mentre fai colazione o pranzi o ceni si dialoga sempre. Questo fa la differenza. Ci hanno portato a vedere il mare sempre con molta allegria Ringrazio Anna per avermi coinvolta in questa bellissima settimana e ringrazio Lucy e Tom per avermi insegnato tanto. Appena potrò tornerò con piacere.

Before we decided to go to Scotland we had an idea that it would be nice for three of our grandchildren to be more interested in the English language.

We went to stay with Lucy Boylan and her husband Tom in Alyth in Scotland.

It has been a fantastic week with a lot of activities and a good fun. We visited St Andrews, had a guided tour from a family friend and walked along the coast.  Tom gave us a golf lesson at his golf course and one day we went kayaking on the River Tay. We even picked strawberries in a local farm and afterwards made jam.

We and the children in age of 9, 11 and 13 have learn a lot through practice English in daily life.

Active English gave us the chance to learn English while having a holiday - no formal lessons but the children grew in confidence.

Everything was better than our expectations and we really enjoy our stay with Lucy and Tom.

L'apprentissage de l'anglais par immersion dans une famille est une excellente formule. Elle permet d'intensifier les progrès en communication orale (expression et compréhension) parce qu'elle offre l'opportunité de communiquer avec plusieurs personnes différentes de la famille et du réseau de connaissance.
Lucy a su s'adapter à nos niveaux de compréhension et de communication pendant les cours, mais aussi lors des autres moments de la journée que nous avons partagé ensemble, facilitant en cela nos progrès en anglais.
Notre demande était centrée sur l'amélioration de la communication orale. L'ensemble des activités, variées et ludiques, proposées par Lucy ont pleinement répondu à cet objectif.
Lucy et Tom sont des personnes très ouvertes, curieuses, enthousiastes. Ces qualités nous ont permis d'être d'emblée très à l'aise chez eux, et cela pendant les 15 jours de stage.
Pour terminer, nous ajouterons qu'Alyth est situé dans un bel environnement. Nos temps libres nous ont permis de compléter notre connaissance de cette belle région.

C’est une expérience incroyable de pouvoir partir à la découverte d’un pays et d’autant plus y découvrir la culture de ses habitants. Nous sommes deux amies et dans le cadre de nos études l’anglais est primordiale, alors pourquoi pas tenter l’expérience ? Grace à Lucy nous n’avons plus peur de parler anglais, nous formulons de belles phrases et nous avons appris beaucoup de vocabulaire ! Les échanges sur nos cultures autour d’une table fut très intéressent et ludique avec toute la famille. Nous avons visité Edimbourg avec son festival, Dundee, St Andrew, une distillerie de whisky, et les plages de la côte Ecossaise.

Lucy et Tom sont très sympathique, accueillant, on se sent directement à la maison, la barrière de la langue n’est pas un obstacle aux discussions.
