Even though it's not the best season to visit,...

Even though it's not the best season to visit, Bournemouth didn't fail to attract us by its mild climate, calm atmosphere and heart-warming locals. Public transportation is inconvenient which makes it rather difficult to hang out at night. Thus, if you prioritize night-life, it might not be the best place. You have an access to everywhere in England, so it'll be your good base for your travels.

Some teachers are really good quality and the employees are friendly people.
Decide students' levels in more detail and place them accordingly. Also do not change the teacher constantly.

Small groups and talking with the others students allows to considerably increase the level in oral
Problem of organisation on the first day, you only have the test and then just a little presentation, so you lose all the lessons scheduled on this day. A problem if you stay only one week, you pay for a certain number of hours and you lose lessons of the first day.

The first week I liked a lot, the other two weeks, after the massive groups of students arrived, I did not like. They changed my schedule to the afternoon and I really did not like the organisation for people my age, I only shared classes with much younger students and from Saudi Arabia, and when I mentioned it they said they could not change me, because I think there were no other possibilities.
I think the school, as far as I could see, is well organised for young students.

Teachers and classmates were always very friendly and motivating! The school and the way the teachers teach is brilliant! They always try to involve everyone and are ready to answer all questions! School activities and food offered in buffet are varied and always good! Also the family in which I was placed were the best! They were much better than I was expecting! Their welcome and living in their house, being a part of their family, was really enjoyable! The experience I gained in Bournemouth, especially studying in United World School and living in such a good family is invaluable and I will never forget it!
The school is better than I ever could expect!

I really liked the school location, as it is near from the beach and the town center (around 5 minutes walk). Also, I liked that the school received students from different countries.
United World School of English should change their level test. Indeed it undervalues the students' level, since it is ONLY a comprehension test were the students JUST have to complete the missing words of 100 lines. There is NO listening test, NO writing test, or NO oral expression.
