The quality of the teachers is uneven. One professor only gave written exercises and was talking all the time without hardly allow the students to speak but another teacher was more engaged and was doing more conversation activities. However, the programs are too focused on grammar and writing and not enough on speaking.

After two weeks on chairs with fold-out tables I dealt with some back pain. I am 23 and have no other back problems. ;) It was not the end of the world, but after two weeks I really looked forward to tables and sitting straight again.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss
I believe that the daily trips made me feel less lonely : where I was staying, I was the only student and I would have enjoyed being with others. But the house was very pretty and I had a lot of space for me!

I would recommend it without any doubt!

We didn't get a book - just printed pieces of paper. The classes are really repetitive with not a lot of speaking. Other than that they are good.

I found your website and I called. I didn't reach you right away, but I was quickly called back by the Dutch consultant Anouk. We discussed what I wanted and what they could organize for me - and that she did very well. Thank you for this!
