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.
