Welcome to My site!

​​Dear Maxine

I'm Ines' Mum.  Ines is returned from Torbay today really enthusiastic. She told us you were a great and wonderful Host-Mum and we would like to thank you for that. It was her first experience and thank you an unforgettable one.

Thank you very much

With kindest regards

Cèline & Bernd Christoffel


Dear Maxine

The first day when we met and there was a mistake with my host family I remember that you told me that they put me in another host family because they thought that I would be happier in your house and you were right, in your house I felt like I was in my house.  I won't never have enough words to thank you all for everything you have done for me in that wonderful 3 weeks (I know that I didn't meet Andrew and Elise but I would love to meet them).  I was very lucky to have you as my host family because you were the best and I will miss you all a lot.  Give Daisy, Poppy, Dolly and Charlie a huge hug from me.

Kisses and wishes



Hi :)

Thank you for all you did for me!!  You're a so nice family and I think I was really lucky to have you and not another family!  You, Daisy, Poppy, Charlie and Dolly were so kind and sweet to me and that made my week in Torbay so amazing.  I can't thank you enough for all you've done for me and I think that even in 70 years I'll have to think about you when I see a chihuahua, when I drink Vimto, when I go in a pizzeria and on a pier.  This was the first time I went on my own somewhere and it's one of the best experiences I've ever do.  I'm really gonna miss you all and this was an amazing week I'll never forget.  Thank you.



Hello Maxine

We are Celia's parents and we want to thank you because we would never have imagined that our daughter would feel so happy being so far away from our house.  We also want to thank you for your cares, your conversations with her and your affection. 

We hope that we can meet one day.  

See you soon.

Mr & Mrs Garcia 



Ha sido un placer poder conocerás a ti y a tu encantadora familia.  Poder formar parte de vuestra vida diaria ha sido una experiencia maravillosa y enriquecedor para mi y para mi futuro.

Gracias por todo




I'm Raul, Celia's friend.  How's everything going??  I'm so glad Celia gave me your email address so that we could talk to each other.  I want to thank you again for everything.  You actually were like my host mother although I was only with you for one day.  I wish you had been as mine wasn't as motherful as you in a single day.  THANKS A LOT! 

Best regards to you and all your incredible family! 

Hope to see you again one day.​


Dear Maxine, Andrew, Elise, Daisy, Poppy, Charlie and Dolly,

I would like to thanks all of you for everything you gave to Coline during her stay, in term of presence, care, joy and happiness because she really came back to France on one side happy but on the other side sad because she attached​ to each of you, and I have to say that it's relief for me because I was really worry before sending her to England.

Met such a family like yours was the best it could happen to her because she really love to learn languages​.

One more time thank you very much.




Thank you very for the beautifuls holidays, it was very, very amazing and very cool :).  I saw a lots of things, everything in England I miss.  You are a amazing family and a family very fun :)

Thank you very much.

Bye Bye!

Coline xxxx


Dear Family Kershaw

​We had beautiful days with you, we enjoyed ourselves very much.

Thank you for all the time that you spent with us, you were very nice and kind.  We felt part of your family.

Everyone was jealous of us because we always said them really good things about you and because you are the only ones that always pick us up.  We hope that we were nice with you and that you liked us.  You are the only family that hosts students just because you like having them in your home.  It's a nice thing and it was a really good experience that we hope to have again.  We are happy if you want us again the next year, maybe for a longer time.

We would like that you come to Italy to visit us and meet our families.  Also our parents really want to say to you thanks.  We hope to keep in touch.

​Also all of you guys were really kind with us and we think that it's a rare thing.  Our English is not perfect but we are ready to improve it also with your help.

Your house is beautiful and clean and your pets are lovely and funny.  Thank you for all the evenings that we spent together. We are sad to leave you and we will really miss you.

With love

See you soon

​Chiara and Noemi
