Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I recommend doing puting on the River Cam, going to the night club Ballare, and enjoying a good beer in traditional english pubs ( but you have to be 18 or you can't go out at night)
Other comments: teachers are really good and friendly in this school, if you have a problem with your acomodation you can speak about it and they'll do the necessary things for you. they organise activities for their students in a nice social programme. I enjoyed my stay there a lot.
The staff. I had a problem with one of my classes at the very beginning and they fixed it very fast and without any trouble. I also like the variety of people and nationalities in the school.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Important to bring "guided bus tour" in Cambridge, with all the colleges as well as a walk with ponting boat and not least the unique old culture.
Other comments: It is important that LSI Cambridge maintains the installation of ventilation systems in the classrooms so that adequate air change is ensured. According to LSI, there was a process in progress regarding the lack of ventilation.
