United World is one of the most competitively priced language schools in Bournemouth.

United World is a popular school situated in the cosmopolitan town centre of Bournemouth on the south coast of England. Its seven miles of sandy beaches and beautiful surrounding forest make it an ideal location to study and relax.

The popularity of United World lies in our desire to listen to students and offer flexible courses at an affordable price. We are one of the most competitively priced British Council Accredited schools in Bournemouth. However, we do not compromise on quality.

Students who attend United World come from all over the world and many make friends for life.

The teachers are very kind and experienced, but I wouldn't recommend going to school there in July and August. The school was too crowded so in classes were 20 or more students. Bournemouth itself is a wonderful city. I would go there every time again.

It is a bad school, the teachers are not bad because they are obviously native and they always teach, even though there are better ones than others, but it is full of Spaniards and Italians and if you have a moderately high level (upper-intermediate or B2 onwards) it does not help much, and they do not make an effort because the classes are mixed and they do not speak English anymore, so a very bad experience. You think you will live an experience of total immersion in English, but when you arrive they are the first ones who speak to you in Spanish without stopping because they are either Italian or Spanish!

Three of us, Anton,Dima and I,had decided to go on English course. We were planning it about 4-5 months before.We’ve known about linguatrip.com and found out a lot of options where we could go.We’re considering to go to England.We compared prices in London and around south England towards to the Sea.We were looking for the best price-quality option and were considering different types of accommodation like hostels,hotels,apartments,host families,student residence.

In summing up ,criterias for our choice were good rate point, inexpensive accomodation and food, proximity to the Sea and quiet area.

We’ve chosen United World School of English in Bournemouth located near to Southampton.

We made pre-payment for 3 weeks. Then we started to get visa in 1,5 month before the trip.After all we bought tickets and paid rest of the sum for course. It cost 1130 pounds for course and hosting in family.

It’s more comfortable and cheaper to reach Bournemouth by train from London.If u go with group u will save your cash .The cost of group ticket is 32 pounds.

On arriaval we were excited how friendly and hospitable host family were.

They have big family:2 adults(Brien and Karen) and 2 kids. Except us there were students from Saudi Arabia(they were nice).Host family were very talkative,we had breakfast and dinner all together. My friends and I have visited nearest cities around Bournemouth.Also we enjoyed riding bikes.

Our School was perfect. Well-desighned classrooms,friendly students and great teachers were the part of atmosphere.

Students were from different countries,we met only 2 russians for all our trip.

Bournemouth is really beautiful and cosy city located on the coast.

There are excellent infrastructure, all u need is here:shops,cafes,bars,clubs.

My favorites were Tesco(grocery store),Starbucks, library(WiFi is everywhere),Cameo(4 floors of various music like latina,pop,rock and techno).

The road from apartment to school took about 15 minutes by bus.Ticket price is 13 pounds in a week and no limit if u go by Yellow Buses. There are a lot of tours in school to the rest of England, Schotland and Wales.

I want to share my impression with you about these courses.First of all, my speaking skill’s improved and my English is much more better now. But it’s still not upper-intermediate.

It has given me the great experience. These kind of trip motivates a lot to study language further and also it’s the best way of learning ever.

Also,my friend Dima was in elementary class at first,but now he is more fluent.

I was happy with the school, the teachers are good! All new material was practiced immediately with other students. A lot of activities from the school - barbecue, games, volleyball on the beach. The family suited me in all respects, they fed me well. I am grateful for this trip for strengthening my motivation to learn the language.

Thanks to Linguatrip for the organization, you are doing a good job!

I was very pleased with the choice of the school - in the ratio of price / quality this school is the best one in the whole UK.

Very friendly and helpful staff and teachers (the best teacher is Richard).

Teachers always listen to students. Staff organized a lot of social activities.

As for the linguatrip team - I want to express my gratitude to Ekaterina, she always answered quickly not only questions about the visa, but also about the school.

Already two of my friends have used Linguatrip on my recommendation, maybe there will be more ) thanks a lot!

Wonderful school. As far as I understand, this is the best option for the price / quality rate. There are practically no Russian speakers. Absolutely every teacher is a professional. All the words were pronounced clearly, new topics are explained in detail. The city of Bournemouth is also beautiful. I recommend!

This is a wonderful school, where there are almost no Russian speakers. For 6 weeks I met only 4 people who spoke Russian (my native language).

I had a very nice host family with whom I had dinner every evening and for an hour we spoke in English, when I did not go to different events, it was good practice.

In Bournemouth there is an excellent climate for rest and study.

I am very happy about this trip. Thank you Linguatrip.

All in all, I liked it! The school is good. My host family consists of one woman, she cooked very well, but she was not native Englishwoman. Living conditions were fine, i had a separate room. I didn't take part at social programme, but I liked the karaoke night.

Of course, what concerns studying- it depends on the teacher - at first I had a stolid teacher, lessons were not interesting, then a new energetic teacher came and he was perfect. In general, I expected more interesting classes and more effective methods.

Thank you for organising my trip!

Everything was pleasant, the climate is good, warm and close to the beach. I still talking with my host family by chat.

2 weeks is not enough to study in such a good school.
