Global Village is the best English School in the world. All the staffs are so nice and helpful. My teacher, Melody, she was one of the best and it was a pleasure for me to be her student. She is so experienced, supportive, thoughtful and I enjoyed every second of her class. Unfortunately, I haven’t got the chance to take class with other GV’s teachers but I truly believe they are all professional and amazing. Even though I was studying in a country that is so far from my own country, in GV, I felt I am home far from home. I found so many friends from all over the world and learned so many new things from them. I wish I could stay there forever. Thank you so much GV for being INCREDIBLE ...
