What our students said about Cambridge

Rating: 5/5

5.0

It is a wonderful place. First of all, it is very safe. The people are polite and generous, and the overall atmosphere is more economically well off than in other cities. It is a moderately small, rural town, but when it comes to shopping, there are many upscale and renowned stores, probably due to the large number of tourists. The old town center is spectacular. However, it is not the most exciting or glamorous city. You can get to London in an hour by train, so it would be nice to visit from time to time.

Small but charming city with things to do. I imagine that for very long periods, 5-6 months it is too small for you but you always have the train to escape to another city.

This branch school is small and you will get to know everyone from the administration to the teachers very well. The location is not too far from Cambridge station and is in the center of the city.

Friendly administrative and teaching staff, always willing to help. If you come for a long time, you can take a small break for a week (prior notice) and they will extend the week you missed. The facilities are fine.
Good location. Twice a week they have free activities with teachers to practice speaking with other students outside of the academy in a more relaxed environment.

LSI - Language Studies International

Friendly atmosphere
Unilateral transfer fees have been uncommon within the EU since January 2018, therefore delayed receipt of payment. The school, for its part, will not reveal the address of the accommodation until two days before the start of the course, despite the advance payment. Very uncomfortable when travelling abroad! Better: add the transaction fees to the total price from the outset, because the banks have to act according to the law - even after Brexit.

The knowledge of the English language, the ability to convey, teaching language and the British culture, which is an important part of it all.
It is important that LSI Cambridge maintains the installation of ventilation systems in the classrooms so that adequate air change is ensured. According to LSI, there was a process in progress regarding the lack of ventilation.
