What students liked about LSI - Language Studies International, New York
The quality of the lessons, the teachers, and the location were absolutely impeccable. After a placement test on the first day, the class started at 11 a.m. A unit is worked through every week and the teachers are happy to provide information outside of the box. The togetherness in the class was pleasant. At the end of two weeks I go complete my course with an improvement in my language and new friends.
