Accommodation

We regard accommodation as one of the most important parts of a language stay in the UK. The accommodation experience should be as memorable and rewarding as the language learning experience. It can also contribute significantly to the learning process by providing the cultural setting for new language.

The great majority of our students of all ages request homestay accommodation. Many of our homestays have accommodated our students for years and their students are now personal friends. Students and hosts often continue to visit each other long after the course has finished.

Very different people host our students. We visit them regularly and know all of them personally. They live in different parts of the city and in different types of house. They all offer a very genuine and warm welcome to our students.

English in Chester is fortunate to be the only British Council accredited year-round English language school in Chester. As a result we can be selective in choosing hosts for our accommodation register. Our student feedback confirms that the standard of our homestay accommodation is very high.

For students who prefer a more independent lifestyle, we recommend Waterside Court. This excellent self-catering student residence is very close to the school and available year-round. We also recommend our partner hotels, located very near the school, and have a list of hotels and guest houses to suit every taste and budget.
