What students liked about Live Language English School, Glasgow
Quality of the teaching. The teacher was excellent. The classes were always very well planned and organised. After each exercise, it was made clear what was trained and what the point was. Each week, there was a test. So, you could see quickly the progress you had made. Most of the exercises were carried out in groups, so we used the language all the time. The exercises were not unilateral, just the opposite, they were always varying. You never knew what would come next, it was never boring.

The friendliness of the teachers and the way of their teaching the language to people of different nationalities and without the use of a translator. This allows a total immersion in the language.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Try to communicate as much as you can with the teacher and your classmates...Btw there is a small coffee shop near the school, so if you wake up late, don't worry, you can get your breakfast over there
Location in the city centre, near parks and museums. People in the school are very friendly so I wasn't afraid to speak English.
