Anglo Continental hosts a large mix of students from different countries which really accentuates the change of scenery and brings us to speak English with other students. The teachers are friendly and open, while ensuring quality teaching. Activities are always lively and the staff is great! Places are really nice especially the cafeteria and gardens

Only downside : the evaluation test led me to a level slightly below the one I was expecting and despite another test, I was not allowed to pass to a higher level. I got a bit bored as I was learning again some points I had already seen before.

the rooms are too small for the number of participants and the student's number must not exceed 12 otherwise the attention for the lesson will decrase,the timeto talk for everyone is very little too, and the workgroup become very difficult.I'm 10 years experienced in this area and I have a really excellent opinion of this school.

As usual, the quality of the lessons depend on the teacher. And there are teachers in the shool, they are quite good, but others are annoying and you do not learn much. As a student, staying just for two weeks, it is very difficult to get as much as you want, because other students, who are attending the school for months are at an other learning level and if there are some, who are leaving, the teacher make no stress to the end, but this is not your end of the time! All in all, I would say: for longer courses, may be it is intereting to go there, but not for a short visit, which should be very intensive.
