I liked to talk with my professor Pauline in private lessons. She gave to me a lot of knowledge.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I have advice to new students: If you need to effectively improve your English then I recommend private lessons. There is big chance to speak and listen to English all the time.
Other comments
I really appreciate your school. My 1 week of private lessons was very valuable for me.

If you want to learn English, Miami is not the best place. If you want to party, you sould go to Miami Beach and this school is far from there.

Book separate accommodation. I reserved a hostel in South Beach and it was cool, but you do not see your classmates as often as you see the friends from the hostel.
Other comments
I really enjoyed the experience, but the school fees for 3 weeks are a bit abusive (100 USD inscription fee + 50 USD materials).

If you want to know more people is better to choose the residence, but if you want to know the city is better to choose other sort accommodation, so you will be more encouraged to visit the city!
