An Immersion Program means more English

and
The best of an intensive English course with an academy.

Immersion Course details:

• 100% immersion in the language

• Shared living with your teachers
(who are the owners)

• 12 hours of English per day


A maximum of 4 students per class so that the course is more personalised and you speak English
Meals with your teachers during which you can practice your spoken English and we will work on the mistakes that you make
• A “study trip” with teachers so that you will practice English in real situations.

• Possibility of “one-to-one” classes, Business English, Exam Preparation, work and study etc

Price Includes Everything

Our personalised teaching methodology will ensure that the classes of our English immersion courses adapt to your needs and that you will achieve improvement in the areas where you feel that you most need it.

MovingOn Courses has an average of 2.2 students per teacher in class.
The majority of academies work with an average of 9 to 12 students per teacher, students who are given free time during the afternoons. You may have serious intentions to only speak in English but you find yourself speaking your native language.

The English immersion courses start every week of the year in our home/hotel in Bangor, Northern Ireland. Bangor is coastal town, a popular destination for local tourism and located 30 minutes from Belfast City Centre
The school is actually our home which is a small hotel one minute from the sea and marina.
Princetown Guesthouse has a ranking of 9.3 on booking and 9.6 on google.

Why choose an English immersion courses and not an intensive English course?
“Intensive courses” focus on extra classes, however they still have too many students in each group and so little personalisation and few opportunities to speak. There is also too much free time when you will speak your native language. Immersion means English all day with teachers.

Why choose English immersion Program with MovingOn Courses ?
You will live with the owner-teachers. We will guarantee the quality of the course and 100% English. Check our reviews for the course and the hotel.
We believe students need to practice English outside the classroom. Practice in real situations with real people on our study-trips.
Best value for money.

Trusted by Thousand of Students and Tutors


I studied for two months with MovingOn Courses. I was surprised to see that all the students spoke English all the time. This did not happen on my last English course. Sonia, Gavin and all the teachers are patient and encourage you to speak as much as possible – with lots of corrections too! They adapted to my diet without any problems. A great experience that I would recommend to anyone.”
سعد عبد الله, Judge
“I’ve been here for three months during the corona virus lockdown, and I can tell you MovingOn courses is more than just an English academy, It’s a lifetime experience and once you enter this house it’s definitely going to be your second family.
At lunch (the same format also for the dinner) is when the real english starts, you will eat with Sonia and Gavin talking about casual topics like news, life, hobbies. There isn’t any better way to use what you’ve just learned, and don’t worry they will always help you, correct and explain your mistakes, just speak and even when you think you have nothing to say they are so amazing in giving you everyday new stimulus!
Sonia is a great cook, the food is always delicious (i’m italian and I have quite high standard) and if you any preference just tell her without problem.
Once a week when the lunch/dinner is over you have to give a little presentation (about whatever topic you fancy) in front of the teachers and the other students, which will challenge your english skills and it’ll train yourself speaking to a little audience.
After lunch, it’s time to begin the study trip, the teachers will bring you to visit interesting places in the area, and again the learning never stops because every place is a good place to learn new vocabulary, and when you learn something in a particular situation that you are in, it’s even more effective! Before returning at home a stop at the cafe or a typical Irish pub will conclude the study trip, here you will play with the new vocabulary in order to revise in a funny way.
Finally if you aren’t exhausted yet after dinner there are also other activities that you can do like visit one of the several pubs in Bangor, go to the cinema (On Tuesday there are cheap tickets) or just hang out with other students and keep practicing.

“You can choose between filling in next exercises in your textbook to the end of your life or you can go to Bangor and try to your English ;-). Is this course for you?
– If you can’t study English in English or if you are not up to switching your mind to deferent language and culture, no, it’s not for you.
– If you want classes in your native language and in your native country, no, this course is not for you.
– If your main reason of studying this language is passing exams, I think, still it’s not for you.
But if you wish spur on yourself to gain more in short time and you are ready for full immersion in English language and British culture, yes, it’s for you.
I’ve spent in Bangor one week and I appreciate effects. Of course, it’s not that it boosted my level to next stage. But it gave me more accuracy and confidence in speaking. It opened my eyes for key ingredients of natural language (not thousands of details or archaic expressions). In my opinion, the main benefit of such course is improvement of communication skills: mostly speaking and listening.

“I decided to go to moving on course after watching  a video on you tube about other students. I liked the idea of living all day with my teachers and to have some extra study trips. The combination study and fun convinced me to try the experience.
I tried it for one week. Finally I stayed there three weeks just  because I had previous job commitments to manage in Italy. Although I would have stayed there more.
Gavin and Sonia are really professional and prepared and welcoming. I felt as if I was at home. I really like that  In this course you never stop learning even when you aren’t taking lesson. Also, when we were eating we didn’t t stop learning because we were always talking with them and other students in English. There is a whiteboard in every room!
The study trips were exciting and fun and all this was still learning time.
They were really professional and capable to make us talk without us knowing and in this way I improved my skills.
The activities that we did were various and unique. we had the opportunity to meet lots of people speaking native English and to talk with them.
The other teachers  in the school were super professional and prepared too.
The cook Sonia was flawless. Every day she prepared wonderfull meals for us delicious and different.
It was a really relaxing and open minding experience. Very useful end enjoyable. And a fantastic way to improve your English.  I really recommend the course and I recommend trying their method.
I m sure I will repeat the experience.
For me it was a unique experience.
Thank you Sonia and Gavin.
I enjoyed your course and hospitality a lot.

I studied at the MovingOn Course for 5 weeks and it was a great experience. I was looking for a totally immersive course for adults and I found it :). This course is 100% English, Sonia and Gavin create every possible opportunity to engage us students and get us talking as much as possible. I got on well with all the teachers, the environment is informal and relaxed, you feel like at home! Twice a week, in the afternoon, Sonia organises study trip, which are a great opportunity to practise English and discover the beauty of the place. I absolutely recommend it!

By chance, I found this course on web because of my increasing desire to live and work abroad. Nowadays it is hard to find English course for mature adults that allow you to study and live with the locals, specially for over 30yo people. Moving on Courses offers all of above. Sonia and Gavin are teachers and owners of an amazing, traditional Guesthouse. It means that students are completely involved in an AllInclusive English experience, from breakfast to dinner. You will start talking from 8 AM, although you feel trapped because of the hard work you have to do with the teachers, your efforts will be rewarded with great traditional and weel cooked Sonia's food. Finally with your full belly when you're try to free yourself from their clutches, they will drag you in some study trip around the Island to improve your skills, cold/rain resistance, culture and sometimes to calm your thirsty with some good fresh irish drink. I learned a lot on this trip, increase in fluency, listening different accents, cider would be a good alternative for beer in summer, and treasured all the experience shared by teachers and students.

Vine por recomendación de un compañero para preparar un examen de ámbito marítimo. El curso superó con creces mis expectativas. En cuanto a las clases, son a lo largo de la mañana y la orientación de éstas van acorde a tu nivel y necesidades. El máximo número de personas son 4, pero yo estuve con 2 más solamente. Por la tarde hacen unas salidas a las cuáles llaman "study trips", que son viajes por diferentes lugares de la zona donde vas interactuando con personas del entorno y conociendo costumbres del lugar. Durante y después de la comida y cena ( muy rica y saludable por cierto ) interactúas con los profesores y dueños de la academia, los cuales viven en la misma casa que tú. En cuanto al alojamiento, la habitación donde vives está equipada con cuarto de baño propio, internet, TV, servicios de limpieza y todas las comodidades. Lo que más destaco del curso es la implicación tanto de los dueños como los profesores en maximizar tú aprendizaje.

Estuve dos semanas para finales de Julio y Agosto. Fue un regalo de cumpleaños y unos de mis mejores regalos. La experiencia brutal. Mi nivel de inglés era bajo y con miedos de no poder entender o aprender lo suficiente. Os puedo asegurar que es un 💯% de inmersión. Las clases por la mañana. Excursiones por las tardes. Durante las comidas y cenas. Practicando inglés. Note que mi nivel mejoró cuando regresé a casa. Sin duda volveré a repetir. Muchas gracias Sonia y Gavin.

I stayed at Moving On courses for three weeks during the months of July and August and it was a great experience. I feel that my English level has improved a lot, it is a very intense and completely immersive experience. The teachers, Olga and Brian, adapt to your needs and raise your level. I can't forget to mention how delicious Sonia cooks and how well she organizes the excursions, they are a must! during the excursions you continue practicing English in a relaxed way and enjoying the beautiful and very interesting places. Thank you guys!

Fui únicamente una semana, pero he de reconocer que me hubiera gustado haberme quedado un par de semanas más, para mi fue una experiencia muy muy enriquecedora ya que se habla SIEMPRE en inglés. Además tanto los profesores como Sonia y Gavin son muy cercanos y te van a ayudar en lo que necesites. En las comidas hay un ambiente muy familiar desde el primer momento, se habla durante toda la comida y de diferentes temas, incluso si tu quieres hablar de algún tema en concreto te lo puedes preparar antes y en la comida puedes hablar de ellos con todos. Fui con un nivel bajo de inglés, pero no fue un problema para poder entablar conversación con el resto de compañeros. El próximo año pienso ir tres semanas para mejorar mi nivel de inglés!!

I spent many weeks at this school. Experienced teachers such as Olga and Brian and serious teaching throughout the day. The owners of this school, Sonia and Gavin, do more than they can to make you speak correctly throughout the day (during meals there is a blackboard). I loved spending time here and had unforgettable times. I hope Repeat visit.

Really satisfying experience. Totally immersive course where you can only speak English but in a friendly atmosphere with very small groups. I was only there for 1 week but it was very intense and useful with fun speaking classes and study trips. I hope to repeat very soon!

MovingOn courses is different, because in this course it is possible speak 100% english. I spent 2weeks here where I could improve a lot my english. During the morning there are the lessons with teachers by a group max4 people with the same level. I was lucky, I took a lot of 1:1 class because we were different level among students. 2 days a week there are the trips with Sonia and the other students, where it is possible discover beautiful place and practice english in different context. Lunch and dinner with everyone was very funny. It was another opportunity to practice and learn English. Sonia, Gavin and the teachers are expert, professional and friendly. They will make you feel at home in every moment.
