Students liked about Honolulu English School, Honolulu
"The proximity to the residence, the ambience at the school, the activities." - (26 years)
"The proximity to the beach and the friendliness of the staff." - (24 years)
"Practically everything. The teachers were very prepared, excellent teaching methods and overall the internal organization unquestionably perfect for my taste. A little bit less than the organization for newcomers, because they were introduced in classes already formed (which is fine), but coming during the week of the final examination of the Term (so called) it's not appropriate because you find yourself having to take an examination for which you are not ready and then it happened to me that the following week was a little bit more relaxed." - (27 years)
"The environment and the organization of classes." - (24 years)
"The organization was excellent." - (35 years)
