The host family: their ability to adapt was very disappointing. The home fulfils the role of a hotel room and didn't prove to be a place for continued language study; far from it!

The education quality, homework, a small number of students in each course (never more than 9, it's excellent) the place is very close to a subway station on a direct line to main areas in London.
Other comments
The different distribution of the groups every day is kind of curious. Not only students differed, but also the level of the course Also, social activities and leisure, tour arrangement, announced by the school were not available, so I got trouble being in touch with other students: the only proposed during my 15 days of presence, was upon my request, and was held the day before my departure, which was pointless in the end.

My room was uncomfortable, too small and I couldn't use the desk because the chair was so near to the bed. I couldn't share moments with the family like I read on the website.

Avoid accommodation with S., because it is really horrible. He is quarelling the whole day with you and loses his temper every second hour.
Other comments
The school is really great. Susanna and Odile are the most engaged and gifted teachers. Everyone enjoys leraning English there. You will benefit enormously and wish you had booked a longer stay, definitely! Cerise, the school manager, is extraordinarily helpful; whenever you are in trouble, ask her for advice and she will be able to solve the problem! She is uniqe and really SUPER!

It is very important to go to class, and try to socialise with the people during the rest of the day. You will at least have a few hours to solve any issues you might encounter during the day.

I was there for only 2 weeks but I'm very happy with the result and for the great value for money, I reached the goal of improving my conversation in a very short time, the teachers are very good, I undestood them from the very first time. The class mates were fabulous, my host was a lady who I believe she will be forever a dear friend. I received not only training but lots of love, I can only speak well of this course,wish I only could stay longer.
