Teachers are real professionals in their field. The classes were organized in a such way that I was not tired or bored at all. Classes were held in a game form; we often played skits. When the weather was fine, we had classes outside. Throughout the course teachers were changing: in the morning we had one teacher and in the afternoon another, but it didn’t spoil studying. School held entertaining events twice a week: one big excursion (to London, Brighton, Oxford), and one smaller (nearby Folkestone). We had a castle excursion, a little tour and quest. I really liked it.

A fully equipped Edwardian Manor house set in a charming English seaside town

The natural coastline and the refreshing sea breeze at Folkestone make it the ideal choice for learners wanting to study away from the distractions of larger towns. The quaint sloping streets towards the harbour feature shops and cafés, and vantage points offer uncomprimised views of the seascape. The county of Kent with its beautiful countryside is home to Canterbury, famous for the Cathedral and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. OISE Folkestone is situated to the west of the town, bordering a quiet park with plenty of outdoor space.

Students enjoy film nights, talent and fashion shows, quiz nights, art challenges and theatre workshops. Excursions to the medieval English town of Canterbury to visit the Cathedral and a nearby animal park as well as day trips to London happen each Saturday.

excellent

In general, I was pleased by the trip.

School is located just in 5 minutes of walking from the city centre. We had classes in college, in which there were 2 schools. Our school had just 60 students.

On the first day we had test to determine the language level. Test consists of 2 parts: writing and speaking. After test I was assigned to the Intermediate group.

In the school were only small groups: 6-8 students average. There were a lot of students from Argentina; I didn’t really like it. Classes were held from 9am to 5pm (with breaks, of course). Shops usually close at 5-6pm, so I’m often couldn’t buy all what I needed.

I was living in host family, literally in 5 minutes walking away from school. Family have three children. We get along really quickly. I had breakfast and dinner in family and lunch at school. First week I live in the same room with 3 girls. Room wasn’t really spacious, there were nightstand, wardrobe, and bed, so it was quite poky. Then I was moved to another room with two other girls.

In general, there is friendly atmosphere in the school. You can transfer to more advanced group if you feel, that it’s too easy for you.

Thank you, LinguaTrip.com, for trip organization!
