HELLO English is a specialist English language homestay provider. We offer a range of on-line, special interest, intensive and longer-stay courses - from conversation to IELTS and Cambridge programmes.
Our teaching is usually 1-to-1 or in small groups of two or three students. We encourage students to live, talk and think in English whilst they are with us, so that they benefit from a total immersion experience.
We are based in Moseley, an attractive residential suburb about 20 minutes (train/bus) from Birmingham city centre.￼
Opposite our house is Swanshurst Park, a large open park popular for walking, jogging and cycling – or just for relaxing and enjoying a picnic by the lake.
Behind us, Moseley Bog forms part of the Shire Country Park that provided the inspiration for the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, written by JRR Tolkien, who lived nearby.
Close by, Moseley village is busy with shops, cafes and restaurants. It features an award-winning monthly Farmers Market, and hosts summer jazz & folk festivals that attract thousands of visitors from all over the country.
Nearby, Stratford-upon-Avon (home of national playwright William Shakespeare) is a pleasant 40-minute train journey from our local railway station. Picturesque Henley-in-Arden is worth a visit for its shops and architecture, and always for its ice-creams.
We are within easy reach of the historic towns of Worcester, Warwick and Shrewsbury, or, for a slightly more energetic day out, the picturesque Malvern Hills.
If you would like to explore a bit further afield, the train journey from Birmingham to Oxford or to London takes about 1.5 hours.
