Very kind and professional teachers! Comfortable classes. Friendly students.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Of course, I absolutely advise to buy an Oyster card (7 day travel card) because it's much cheaper. Also try to practice your English with other students. Speak ONLY English even if there are other students from your country in your class. It will help you to speak more fluently in the future.

The courses were fun, and allowed you to socialize with students of other nationalities. The teachers used an interactive method that allowed you to revise the new skills learned. I found a great openness and a great availability. The classes were comfortable, no one felt different, moreover, there was no laughing and joking about the errors of the individual. The activities were well organized. Learn to discover and love the English language. The school became the family and developed a great relationship with all.

The CES doesn't have a good program of lessons, with clear purposes that the students can follow. It's chaos, it's all part of lessons and no structure! Very bad!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Public transport is by far the most expensive in Europe, so i would recommend future students either to bring large amounts of money for transport or try and get an oyster student card.
