Parents sent to this school on vacation to study English. The trip will be remembered for a long time! Since this was the first independent travel abroad!)

On arrival, I was waiting for a test, where I got agitated and made foolish mistakes when passing the test and when a teacher approached me, I could not utter a word of excitement. Due to what, I thought that I will be determined at the entry level. But, what was the surprise, when I was identified in the right group for me, at the right level and what I was passing at my school in my hometown!

I was afraid that I would study with a older students. But, school staff try to make sure that there are not too large age restrictions and also do not allow to communicate in our native language.

The lessons were fun, the teachers talked with us easily, they joked a lot. Finally, I began to understand the difficult grammar of English =)

My host family was super! I was very lucky with them. Friendly, also they cook very delicious, they tell different funny stories. Also, one of the family members had a Birthday, and my host monther invited me to celebrate it together, where all the friends and relatives of the family came together. It was very interesting event, like in the movie :-) I felt like at home!

I still have a lot of impressions and I would very much like to return to this school as soon as possible and see my teachers again.

The location is good. Nearby there are many cafes and shops. A lot of nationalities are in groups, teachers are professionals.) Find a common language with everyone. Many students come here to study and find new friends.

London is an expensive city, you have to take this into account. It is best to book a host family. Thanks to LT team for the trip! Everything was at the highest level!)
