The school was very nice. It has 2 buildings. The first building is very modern and the classes are very nice and light. There is an interactive table in each class - it was great. There is air conditioning in classes. Second building is a typical school - older type. I had enjoyed the e-learning process.

The teacher assigned to me for the daily lessons has really responded to my expectations. The afternoon lesson has less responded to my needs but, over time, it was possible to meet my needs and therefore also in this case the school's response was positive.

Other comments They need to improve (but I know that logistics aren't easy) the organization of the accommodation. Living with people of different ages (in my case I was 38 and the others 20) makes sharing the apartment, especially the management of communal areas, quite unpleasant (inability to keep it clean, in particular, but also noises and privacy)

I liked the informal atmosphere and the small size of the school, which allowed a personal relationship between teachers and students. I appreciated the careful management of the director and the teaching quality assessment carried out every week.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss The target audience of the school is very diverse, both as age and as nationality, so that a comparison is made very rich and interesting.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss The weather in St. Paul's in very hot, keep that in mind. I think it would be better going in spring or autumn. there are also fewer students, furthermore the classes would be better. It was a very good experience to improve my skills.

Other comments I think that demanding a deposit of 100 euros in cash is excessive, since the banks charge us commissions for withdrawing money. I think they should allow paying the deposit by credit card. I think they should review the things that can go wrong in the apartment, before the student arrives.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss If it could be a very formative experience or not it depends on you only. The school gives you all the possibility to take the maximum advantage from this experience. The best part is the numerous occasions to socialize and to use the English in real life. It is not only a school.
