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.
