New York is amazing. Too bad my kid didn't get to feel it. I'll have to take her to the Met, Ellis Island museum and Statue of Liberty again - she didn't learn a thing from her silent tour with this school.

The thing I mostly liked about this school was the interaction between teachers and students. I could, in a single week of school, meet 4 different teachers with 4 different teaching styles. Anyway the involvement and the students'care was very high. In this way beyond the linguistic progress, the fear of express yourself has been replaced by the will of a good communication
In addition to the teachers, even all the staff is very polite and prepared.

I don't recommend. My teacher was not qualified at all. I read a grammar book for 3 weeks and by myself, despite my comments to the professor. He was extremely lazy and, at the end, he behaved violently because of my review: Dissatisfied. I was shocked and scared. He aslo falsified the form I signed and added scores of test that I never performed. Just shocking. And the list of disfunctions is longer...
