Monro Homestay
Live and learn in an English Country Home

Peter & Patricia Monro teach English and many other subjects, in our home set in the lovely countryside of West Berkshire. With fifty years of business experience we specialise in business people and those who already have a good grounding in English.

For anyone doing any international business, English has become vital – for meetings, telephone, e-mails, presentations, speeches or socially. Hundreds of  language schools teach the basics, our niche starts then, helping people improve, specialise, practice.

We teach those with the tools, how to use them. We give clients the proficiency and confidence to use English professionally in all aspects of their work. Follow-up is everything, so we use Skype to continue lessons after our clients leave.

For those with lower levels, from beginners up, or different requirements – academic, personal – we also have teachers and teach those of any age, from 12 to 70.

Other visitors use us as a base to explore a beautiful part of England with any amount of historic towns and places to see -  Oxford, London, Stonehenge, Bath, Winchester  and Windsor – are just some of them.

Our Blog above shows the subjects we cover - language, writing, history, literature, culture. They are all part of what we teach, in our home or on Skype and are added to continually.

There are any number of sports and activities -  archery, painting, riding, fishing, shooting, cookery, canoeing or jogging/walking in the country around us.
