I liked the kindness and courtesy of the staff and teachers. I was particularly impressed by the two extra private lessons that they offered me (due problems during the 2 weeks of my course) by the excellent teacher Denise Harford. Good quality of the 2 private lessons.
Even though the Director of Studies understood that some of the classes may not have been ideal for me and kindly offered me two private lessons, I must say this was not enough for my expectations - and the cost- of a Super-Intensive General English Course.
