We were recently absolutely delighted to welcome the lovely 保罗 Rosenmöller, the Dutch TV Presenter at LSI for an intensive English course here. A man with such an interesting and busy life, he was kind enough to take time out to let us interview him.

“保罗: Someone told me that following a course and stay in a host family in England is the most effective way to make the improvement. If you stay at home you are always disturbed with emails etc., but I wanted to give priority to the language.
！我从来没有听说过他们，所以叫我的秘书 研究 旅行
保罗: It was all by phone, all in Dutch, about my requirements not my level. I was thinking about London. London is the place to be, visit museums etc, but then I started to realise it’s about my language. If you really want to be successful, if you really want to give priority to the language, the city itself is not the most important thing, so I decided on LSI because of the combination of the reputation of the institute and the option of having a good match with the host family.
保罗：是的这是非常专业的，所以 埃里卡 从 研究 旅行 asked me several questions. Because I am more or less well known in the Netherlands it is not difficult to explain who I am. It was important to explain what I wanted to achieve and what my goals were, and it was important, the match with the host family. She gave me good advice and suggested a host family that were a retired couple who were interested in all kinds of social, global and international things.
保罗: Without any doubt, she got it right. Now I am nearly at the end of the course, I have to say I’m tired, I’ve worked hard, but I’ve made some progress as well in terms of vocabulary, and confidence. You start thinking in English, which is important. With the course we started at 8:00 in the morning. It is intensive, then it’s conversation with the homestay, then homework. The days are long and intensive but the focus is the language and that is the most important thing.
保罗: I visited the old town in the first week in the evening and the shopping mall, close to the ships; I walked around a little and got the impression of the place close to the harbour and the sea. Honestly speaking I can’t give a very detailed description about 朴茨茅斯, but this is a city that is easy to survive here, there are nice restaurants, nice shops, the location of this institute is close to the centre. In the end I am glad I decided to come here instead of London.
保罗: Definitely, I think LSI did a perfect job, the programme was personalised. The programme touched on different issues related to education and subjects I brought up. There was a huge variety of subjects we discussed, there was the focus on presentations, debates, negotiations, sharing meetings, these things are important in my work, not that often in a foreign language, but a good way to make further improvement and so it was definitely personalised, different teachers with a different perspective.
保罗: My two key objectives were to first gain confidence, because I always had the feeling that my English wasn’t good enough, confidence is essential to make sure you make further improvements. Secondly, was the fluency, and thirdly, to broaden my vocabulary.
保罗：最重要的是信心，我有想法，我可以在一定的水平说话。你把它先进的;有时候我有我的怀疑一下。 （安德鲁和苏：“相信我们是”) One of the teachers showed me something, which was good for self confidence; I gave a presentation, he counted the pauses and the errors, he said “during 6 minutes you made ‘slips / mistakes “so in terms of pauses and fluency it was 99% correct 😉
保罗: Depends on your level but my experience is if you really think you have a problem with confidence, go there. They can help you. It’s really a major advantage to go to a country where they speak the language. It is the lessons at the institute, the conversation at home, the conversation with the students, watching the news in English. I would definitely recommend doing it the way I did, I can also recommend your institute because I am very satisfied.
保罗我会说像我这样，去推荐类似的组织好学校 研究旅行， 凭借良好的信誉。无论是忘掉它是一个很好的城市，去的语言，优先使用的语言。我永远不会忘记LSI，或寄宿家庭在城市。
安德鲁保罗，它已经这么高兴你来这里学习，非常感谢您在这里跟我们说话，并让我们把它打印出来 - 现在我们希望能得到很多很多的学生对ESTA的反馈信息，我们是令人难以置信的感谢给你。
