During the first week it was hard, but by the end of the second week I understood 80-90% of the material and could talk. Two weeks is not enough. I lived in a host family in the 3-4 zone, everything was fine, but its cold a bit in the house, especially when the zero temperature outside.

"Accommodation. I lived in zone 3-4 in room with a private bathroom. Everything was fine, except the bathroom size – it was very small for my two-meter growth. Also, it was very cold in the bathroom at zero temperature. I was fed well, the food was too spicy only once. The area where I stayed was quiet and peaceful and it was located near the Newbury Park metro station. It took 5-10 minutes to get from home to the metro station and ~ 45 minutes to get to the school by metro. In total, one-way trip to school took usually an hour. One early Saturday morning I went on an excursion to see Stonehenge. On that day when I went down to the metro station I was hit by a hooligan. I had to defend myself and it turned out that I hurt my hands :( I do not know if the incedent is connected with the location of the metro station in zone 3-4, but everyone at school was very surprised with the incedent. Moreover, Stonehenge was closed due to cold windy weather and, besides, I fell ill.

Studies. I really liked everything, the lessons were interesting. In grammar classes we used a special textbook developed by Kaplan school + the teacher gave us exercise sheets, then we discussed the tasks with our partner (student). On the first day the classes were difficult for me because I understood speech poorly. In speaking class I was in a panic for 2 days :) But in this case the key factor is practise. So, on the next week I understood 80-90% of the information that people told me. At the end of the second week I could talk a little, but 2 weeks are not enough for a language course. Initially I was assigned to a group with A2 level (lower intermediate). At the end of the course everyone could pass the exit test. It showed that my level of English has improved to a very good B1 level (Intermediate). The teachers said that I have good writing, listening and grammar skills and if I stayed longer, I could improve my speaking. So if you have the opportunity to take a long-term course, then take it! And do not forget that you have to work on your own as well. There is a special computer class for this purpose at the school where you can take tests, listen to audiobooks, watch Netflix, etc.

Talking about students' nationalities, there were many Hispanic, Italian, Chinese students but there were no Russian ones:) Only duting the second week I met a girl from Belarus with whom I had spoken for a few minutes. This can be considered either as an advantage or disadvantage. The advantage is that you do not speak your native language, the disadvantage is that the rest of the foreigners speak their native language and you lose the opportunity of speaking practice.

To summarize, I am satisfied with this language school. I would like to stay there for a longer time... I do not like to recommend anything as any recommendation is subjective."

It was astoundingly great travel, thanks to Linguatrip! I'll start with the residence - I took the residence Tufnell park,100% satisfied, very clean, located in a beautiful quiet area, modern renovated.

The school itself is in the center, the ideal location for me, I've been to London many times and know the city well enough. The communication at school is very convenient - always can consult you on all issues. So if you want to relax, have a good and useful time - I highly recommend it!

Spent time with classmates, went to the suburbs, from the school i did not take tours. It was easier on its own, organized with the group themselves, went to Brighton. The courses helped to improve my English very much, the level of conversation got higher, very pleased with the training. As a whole i was happy with the trip.

Very cool school!

I went there for 3 weeks, i lived in the family in the 3-4 zone. With accommodation there were some problems, but I asked to change and the next day I moved to a new place. There it was very good: 5 students (all very friendly), own room with bathroom, delicious food and very clean.

I studied at the course of ielts preparation, we were lucky with the teacher, so everything was interesting and useful.

The school itself is excellent! Friendly staff, ready to solve any problem, good leisure, and the school itself is very convenient - in the heart of the city.

Probably this is my best trip for all time. The language improved and passed the 6.5 test almost without getting ready!

I advise everyone to go here!

The Сhapter King Cross is simply perfect! Everything is super, especially common rooms - new, modern. The location is also very convenient. The teacher was an Arab, but with an excellent knowledge of the language. Due to the fact that the classes started early enough, the efficiency decreased. Also we had a very international group, which sometimes caused conflicts during the discussion of problematic topics, but on the whole it was an interesting experience!

I liked it very much! Special thanks to the manager Alexey!

As a whole i'm happy with a trip. The family was good.

At school everything was not very well organized - meetings at the bar, an excursion to the London Eye, I went to Bruges and Lille for the weekend. I wanted more systematisation in class, I expected more from this course. Teachers often changed because of the large amount of students.

Classes began at 8 o'clock, that was too early for me. Most of all, I liked communicating with the Londoners themselves, this is an amazing experience.

I've just finished studying in Kaplan Covent Garden. It's an amazing school. They have cool teachers and found only positive reviews. When I chose this school for 2 months, I had a pretty big choice to make and Linguatrip helped me to narrow down the choice to Kaplan. The atmosphere in school is amazing and the school is the right choice for long-term courses. I lived in a host family close to the school. I adore this school and like it so much!
