    I would definitely recommend this school to anyone wanting to improve their English while having a great time. I had an awesome experience, with the social program being one of the best parts. I met people from different countries, as there were new students each week, and made great friends. The school has excellent teachers, who really helped me in my preparation for my IELTS exam, and I was really pleased with my grade. Also my host family were lovely - always taking care of me and helping me with my English at dinner.

    As regards the students, they were completely satisfied both with the programme (included teachers and school) and with the other activities
    planned for them (excursions and social life). They were also happy in general with their families.

    I would add that it would be good if you could include the pass bus for the week. And as for the accomodation, I would recommend you to ask the group leader if he/she has any priorities (within reach) to live in a house. For example, proximity to centre or school or to check that buses run after 6 o'clock in that street.
    I wouldn't rate low the family where I lived because they were willing to help and nice, but I don't think it was the right house for me.
    The Tv that was in my bedroom was only to watch DVDs, no radio, not very talkative family, bedroom just ok and I think that the leader, most of all, after organising everything wants to come to England to make the most of it. That's my opinion.
