Learn to speak English

Europeans often choose English as their second language - and one Handsworth Wood entrepreneur has given up her career at a children's centre to tap into the world's desire to learn our lingo.

Whenever I return from my holidays, I always feel a little guilty. Not because of the week of indulgence, lazing around or even the damage I have inadvertently caused to the ozone layer. But always because of my inability to speak a foreign language.

Lorna starts Homestay

If you have ever tried learning a language then you will have, at some point, heard someone saying that the best way to do this is to visit the country where that language is spoken.

This is exactly what Stephan Fiedel, area manager for international supermarket chain Netto in Germany, did when he booked a one-week full immersion language course staying with a host family/teacher in Birmingham.

Lorna breaks language barrier

An entrepreneur from Handsworth Wood has turned her part-time job into a full-time profession by setting up a language tutoring business with a difference.Lorna Allen, from Inchcape Avenue, used to work for The Brambles Children's Centre in Kingstanding, but now helps foreign students to learn English.

The 40-year-old mother of two links up visitors from all over the world with hosts who offer formal lessons and the opportunity for guests to immerse themselves in English culture.
