The province boasts more than one UNESCO World Heritage Sites, several archaeological museums, many beautiful sandy beaches and harbours with plenty of opportunity for water sports and boat trips.

Turkish was spoken most of the time. Only new grammar was explained in English. The teachers are all very nice and helpful. Even if there are problems outside the school, they will help you.

Very nice ladies; My 4 stars for 'quality of teaching' does not relate to the teachers, but to my own language progress. I do not know what might help me make better progress.

I especially liked the central location, the teacher and the intensive language training, since I was the only student.
Unfortunately, since I was the only student, there were no leisure facilities at all. But due to my great host family that was no problem.
