Student opinions about Nacel English School , London
Liked
The administration (Makiko, Barbara and Nick) is very friendly and accommodating. They showed themselves to be very flexible when I had to switch to online classes. The school is small and very personal, which I liked a lot. You felt very welcome and realized that it was important to Makiko and Nick that you feel comfortable. The Realia Course could not be carried out as announced, which is why we were offered a replacement solution (private lessons).
Disliked
Unfortunately, the school doesn't actually offer CPE (C2) courses and General Language Courses at C2 level. I was in a C2 course for the first two weeks, after which it was combined with the Advanced course. Since we mainly did exam preparation in the general language courses, it was a waste of time (I passed the C1 exam over a year ago). I would recommend students at level C2 to go to a larger school. I couldn't really improve. For Elementary and Intermediate students, however, the school is highly recommended as it has small groups and cares a lot about the well-being of the students.

Quality of teaching / language progress: The school is the 1st option for Elementary-Advanced Level. For CPE, however, I advise against it, the school is too small and cannot offer C2 courses (neither exam preparation nor general language courses).
Other comments: Very friendly and accommodating team!

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Do not decide on Camden Stay Club, the bathroom conditions were just disasterous and they are disrespectful towards guests.
