Student Reviews

We’re very lucky to have so many happy students here at BEET, hearing about their time with us makes our job even more worthwhile. Here’s what some of them have to say!

“In my opinion, BEET is a perfect place to study English.  All the people are very nice and engaged. Socializing with other students is very easy. The classes are very informative and varied. After class, Tanja from the canteen prepares an excellent lunch. My host family is also worth mentioning. They are very lovely and helpful people. I have my own large room with private bathroom. I eat  dinner with my host family every evening and we have a great talk together.  I highly recommend Beet for people who want to have a great, fun and educational time in Bournemouth!”

“My 3 months experience in Bournemouth has been fantastic! It is such an opportunity to make new friends, discover British culture and of course improve your English. My stay in a host family made my experience even more immersive. They’ve always made sure I felt comfortable and were really caring people. I can definitely state it’s an experience I will remember forever!”


Alessia Bujard, Cambridge English First, Switzerland

“My experience here was amazing from the first moment I went into the school. Honestly, it’s more than just a school: it is the perfect place to learn English, make new friends from all over the world and always feel happy. The staff is great, there are a lot of activities and excursions you can do that will make your stay here just wonderful. Thank you for everything.”

Giulia Muscolino, IELTS, Italy

During my course at beet in Bournemouth, I had the pleasure and good fortune of staying with a host family just a few blocks away from the school. Linzi turned out to be a very kind, warm hearted person, always with a smile on her face and ready to help out in whatever one may need, providing every student with recommendations, suggestions and advice. The house in itself is a joy. Very colourful and fresh.

I stayed twice at her place and am looking forward to staying with her again on my next trip to England

Susan Perner, 40+ Programme, Argentina

“I’m over the moon with my host mother, Roxanna. She’s a lovely and funny person and she always cares about our comfort and necessities. I’m very well here and the most important thing is that I feel like I’m at home. She’s always very pleased to talk with all of us and help us if necessary. It definitely helps me to improve my English level.”

Mariana Crespo, General English, Argentina

“I had a great time here, even only for two weeks. I found a lot of hospitality since the first day, both from those working at BEET and from the students. For me you are the best school that I attended. Thanks for all! In Italy we say ‘Una scuola indimenticabile’ The meaning is an ‘unforgettable school.”

Viola Butti, General English, Italian

‘’I would recommend this school to anyone as it is very familiar and I felt really comfortable after the first few days. The teachers and canteen team make the difference and are so encouraging! The exam preparation course is efficient and helps a lot to improve the weak parts. I learnt new things every day. My host family was absolutely amazing and I am very happy with my stay in Bournemouth.‘’

The residential area is nice and it is easy to get to the town centre where you can go shopping, to many restaurants, pubs and club nights. There is also a beautiful beach where you can have a great time with your friends. To be honest I wouldn’t change anything.”

Unforgettable memories bring me back to BEET and Bournemouth every summer leading a group of students who wish to follow my footsteps in my successful learning odyssey.”

I even couldn’t picture myself ever leaving this place, it was honestly one of the best experiences of my whole life. I’m going to miss all of this so much 🙂 Thank you so much for your impeccable hospitality. I will never forget BEET or the wonderful people I got to meet there…Can’t wait to see you again :)”

Thanks to BEET Language Centre, every memory borned from your buildings and atmosphere. I love England and Bournemouth.”

“BEET is a very professional school in many ways! First of all the high quality teachers. Besides, I think Martin is the most important person in the school – he always says “good morning”, asks how you are. It makes me feel home and welcome. Besides, he take you and your problems serious, which makes me feel safe. Rhona, Rob, Jonathan and Kirsty are extremely good teachers. Besides of the high quality and varying lessons, they make me feel comfortable in the lesson therefore I dare to speak. Furthermore, they are patient, they listen and try to understand me (us). Especially Rhona. She is wonderful because she doesn’t only see you us as students but as humans. She is interested in you, what you have done, how you are as a person. Besides, she also concerns about our develop and how to improve more. Rhona makes an extra effort – thank you. The accommodation team (Millie, Alison) are very good listeners, they really take care of you, try to find the best solution and help you – thank you.”
