Leisure activities and trips organised by the center, at least the first week, to build links and confirm or no affinity with others.
Other comments
Still a little surprised by the age mixity inside the groups. I was with more teens than adults... Not convinced even a little surprise of my level test on week 1, because a lot of people from my group had very strong accents making their English beyond understanding, and who had in my opinion more problems in speaking. Hopefully, I was moved to a higher level group after the second week. CES Worthing has a good price-quality ratio but even with these good points it is not the best school of all. I'd have appreciated to have more people my age in my group. PS : computer room had more broken than operating computers so they were not always available for everybody in the group. Some people in my group were thus using their smartphones. Bad point. I refused to buy the book at the beginning of the class, I was following with someone else. Hopefully, because when I changed group, I'd have needed another book and so payed twice for two different books for a two-weeks use each.

Those, who have never studied English in Italy and therefore know just few words should, before leaving, learn some words, so that, once you are at school, manage to follow the lesson.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you go to learn English just avoid spending your time with others who speak your native language. That's what I did and I have made a lot of progress. Bring a paper dictionary rather than using an iPhone or other electronic means (this will help you with learning). If you have to go to London or other cities do not chosse the organized tours. You'll spend less and have more fun.
