What students liked about TLI English School, Edinburgh
The teachers and the other employees were super nice and taking the coures was a lot of fun. Since it was January, there was, unfortunately, no leisure program, but there was a good network among the students. The chairs with a foldable writing surface should be replaced; they are too small, grubby and the writing surfaces are no longer even. I missed a canteen, but the school size probably doesn't allow it. Overall, however, recommendable and if I manage, I'll be happy to become a repeat offender.

Other comments: I think that there should have had more classrooms with different levels. in the same course, we were students with B1, B2 and C1.
Informal and friendly atmosphere at school, good teachers, students from different countries. It was very easy to communicate and understand each other even though my English wasn't really good.
