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.

I liked the teachers and their skills in teaching, but I can't say I'm fully satisfied about my experience because in this period they've gone to holidays and I changed teachers a lot of times. In my opinion, in this way I couldn't improve very well my English. The teachers are very friendly and patients with the students but I disagree about this organization of the school.
