What our students said about Belfast

3.0

Rating: 3/5

It is a very interesting city because of its history and its geographical location. It is also a city that gets better and better as time goes by and you get to know it. At first, the streets in the centre can be a bit unsafe because of the homeless and drug addicts, but as long as you are careful and don't get into trouble, you don't have to. However, there is a serious problem at weekends with alcohol abuse. Although, as I say, it's not the most beautiful city in the world at first, the people are very friendly, the bars are great and it gradually wins you over. I liked it.

Personally the climate was a bit harsh for me because I come from a warm country, but on the whole it is good. It is a very clean country that respects nature, which I find good. I didn't want to go out too much at night. But people are pleasant and remain positive.

International House

The attention was good and they were very friendly and went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The teacher Ryan was great, pity we only had him for a week for the first two hours.
In general it is a good school (with some exceptions).

The varied activities they offer and the patience that the teachers have with the students and above all they did not put pressure on me and I was able to progress at my own pace.

International House

The teachers made the lessons very interesting. A lot of group exercises, which help you to socialise with the others. The school is simple and organised. My English improved for sure.
The staff are available at every request. The teachers are good. The school is near the city centre. Some classrooms are a little small.

Information about Belfast

Why Belfast? Belfast is the capital city of Northern Ireland and is in many ways a brand-new city. It suffered greatly during the Troubles of the 70s and 80s and was often shunned by travellers not wanting to visit. Today it is considered one of the safest within the country and now enjoys a sustained period of calm, free from the intense political violence of former years. Belfast remains a centre for industry, as well as the arts, higher education, business, and law, and is a major port with commercial and industrial docks dominating the shores.
