Insider tips about what future students should not miss
If you would like to improve your language in a short period of time or prepare for exam LSI is not the best option. Personally, I think the school is weak. It won't be difficult studying at LSI, you won't have a lot of homework, and the lessons will be quite simple.
Other comments
My opinion, if your main aim is improving English, LSI is not the choice.

I liked the fact to know people from all over the world, but the thing that I was pleasantly surprised the most has been the availability, kindness and friendliness of the teachers and of all the staff of the school.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
That the availability and the patience of both the operators of the site and of the school are extreme and that for any problem or doubt, even the most trivial (experienced firsthand) just ask, an answer will come very soon.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
The number of students was small and the group was of mixed levels.
Other comments
This school is not ideal for young learners, there is not sufficient supervision for minors. Most of the host families are not suitable for this task: they do not talk with the students, and in many cases they do not even offer the breakfast and dinner they are supposed to give. The stay at a hostel would be much better than the homestay in Cambridge.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I think it is a nice idea to take 30 lessons per week if you're there for a short period of time. Ask for the accommodation to be near the school, otherwise you can waste a lot of time.
