England with locals is really experiencing daily life in England. So, do you want to travel to England? But not in the touristic way? Not just for a holiday filled of doing nothing? Than choose for the experience of an international exchange. And see the beauty of England (really, it's not allways raining) through the eyes of a local.
Via 2 glimpse you get connected to somebody who lives in the United Kingdom. Maybe temporarily as an expat, maybe for his or her whole life. Maybe in the city of London, Liverpool or Manchester, maybe in a small village from which you can't pronounce the name of it. This person will take you to unusual places. Places, which you'll never visit without your exchange partner. You'll really experience daily life of an Englishman or woman. And that's great!
2 glimpse gives you endless opportunities in England with locals. Your host in England can offer you a place to sleep. In his home, or in a hotel he recommends. He can take you for a city tour and be your guide for one day. Or he keeps you company for your entire stay in England. You can also choose to experience his daily life. Go and see his work, his home, the club where he is a member, his favourite bar, etc. Once you're connected to a local in England, Scotland or Wales, you make your own agreements.
It's free to meet locals in England
Most of the times an international exchange is free of charge. Sometimes your host likes a little fee to cover his expenses he has to make for you. Off course this is something to discuss before you go to England. Via 2 glimpse, the encounters are based on equality. So you'll meet people like yourself. And mostly they will be your host for free.
