I took an intensive course for 2 weeks and even in such a short time I made progress!

London is vibrant and fast-paced, yet it still retains a great sense of history and tradition.

As one of the greatest cities in the world, you'll never be bored in London.

Whether you're staying within walking distance of the college in Beckenham, or you take the short train ride into central London, there is a huge range of things to see and do.

Kings London is located in the safe, attractive suburb of Beckenham, only 20 minutes by train from Central London. The main College has been transformed by a modern ‘link’ building, which houses a new reception area and cafeteria, and connects the main teaching blocks. Our annexe building, two minutes’ walk away, has a large, modern Computer Learning Centre and spacious classrooms with interactive whiteboards. Students also benefit from lovely College gardens, which can be accessed from the main cafeteria.

In general, my impressions of studying at Kings London school are positive. I took an intensive course for 2 weeks and even in such a short time I made progress! I think if my original level had been higher, I would have been able to get even more new useful knowledge. Unfortunately, every time I had to translate the text of the task with my phone first, and only after that, I could start to do it. Because of this, I was wasting time and didn't keep up with the teacher sometimes. The effectiveness of the lessons from this decreased ...

So my advice to those who want to go to learn languages abroad: it's better to postpone the trip a bit and pull up the language to be able to talk on simple topics. In this case, the benefit of such a trip will increase significantly!

All teachers in Kings London are interested in their work, which is very nice. I liked Isabella most of all, she explained everything very clearly. The younger teachers are also good, but, it seems to me, they don't have enough teaching experience.

During those 2 weeks, I have never seen that someone would invite students to any trips or events organized by the school, which surprised me. Perhaps the announcement of such events was hanging somewhere, but I didn’t see it… So it's better to ask the school staff about it right away, and don't wait for an invitation.

I really liked the host family. Every day we had breakfast and dinner together.  The host-mother was always happy to talk and tried to keep the conversation going, despite my low level of English.

In the future, I will be happy to go to the language school again, but at first, I will pull up the language a little to get the most out of it!

The school is good especially with its daily entertainment program, but I consider that it's designed for long-term staying. I stayed for 2 weeks and actually didn't get any new bits of knowledge. According to my experience, there are lots of schools with richer and more intensive educational programs that are focused on speaking practice more. In my opinion, this school is good for long courses that last for 3 months and more.

I liked everything.

I tried to choose a school with as few Russian students as possible, but on the first day, about 30% of students were Russians.

After we were divided into groups and in my group there was only one Russian girl.

The host family was nice, but the shower was available only once a week and that was really uncomfortable. If I had known about it in advance I would have chosen other accommodation option. But overall it was not bad.

This Summer I was at the language school KingsLondon. Everything was wonderful! At the arrival we were very nicely met and immediately settled despite the fact that we forgot to somehow confirm the time of arrival or something like that. Relatively clean apartments, utensils of a good standard, except that the frying pan is so-so. The teachers are kind and sympathetic, especially my favorite Peter Smith :) The weather in London was wonderful, walked a lot where Greenwich Park particularly liked. People from other countries were very nice (I'm talking about students), from Russia I met only 1-2. I would have been much more pleased if i had not gone for 2 weeks, but for 2+ months

P.S. even in Russia, while preparing documents with linguatrip, I also liked the service, they answered questions about documents in time, thanks to this my friend and I received a visa the first time)

So, I will begin my review from the very beginning, when I decided to choose Linguatrip as a link between me and the Kings school.

It all started with the fact that I contacted the manager Irina to clarify all the details that interest me. Irina consulted me in full measure and oversaw my preparation, right up to the trip, for which she is very much THANKS! When the date of the trip was determined and the school confirmed my reservation, the second stage began - preparation of documents for obtaining a visa. On the website, I ordered a full visa support, which I did not regret. Manager Ekaterina patiently and responsibly informed me about all the necessary documents and details for a "painless" visa. In the end, the visa was received without any problems. Thank you Catherine!

As for accommodation, then I booked it using AirBnB, based on feedback on the owners on the same site. Despite the fact that there were doubts about the hosts, everything turned out to be as good as possible (we remained very good friends and periodically called up).

Now about the trip. As correctly noted by previous students, who have already left feedback on the site, the first day is introductory. In the morning I wrote the test, learned my level and schedule, then we were shown the nearest neighbourhood and school, and sent back home. From the second day, efficient training begins. I chose an intensive course, which included 2 classes in the morning and 1 lesson after lunch. "After-lunch" class is an occupation by interests (business language, legal language, speaking and listening class, writing and reading class, etc.). Due to the fact that my arrival at the school was during the summer period, only the classroom was free, where Alex was the teacher, who made the classes so interesting that I was glad that I was put in a situation where I did not have choice.

The educational process at Kings is quite high. Teachers are qualified (for all the time I have 6 teachers changed), they are looking for an individual approach to each student, they are ready to help in any situation. As for the progress on the results of the course, it is very subjective, since I personally needed English, I tried to do all the tasks assigned to me (effective work in the classroom and doing h/w, attending lectures, talking with students, etc. .). But there were also students who came for 1-2 weeks only after the diploma and slowed down the process by their attitude towards it (good, in my group there were not so many).

The next thing I would like to draw your attention to is leisure. Since the classes at the school end at 3 pm and Saturday with a Sunday weekend, you have enough time to get acquainted with local attractions. A week before departure, I "roughed" the Internet on the topic of London attractions, so I tried to spend my leisure time effectively.

In the last week I bought LondonPass, which includes a free visit to 40+ sights; and from the very morning of Saturday to Sunday evening (with a break for a dream :)) ran around all the remaining places of former glory.

A couple of tips for making your life easier in the UK capital. First of all, after landing, at the airport, buy a sim card with a tariff that includes unlimited Internet and Oyster card, a so-called ticket that will save you a lot of money. Where specifically to buy, I will not tell you, but going through the airport, you will definitely find both. How to use Oyster, can be found on YouTube or on the Internet, so I will not dwell on this. Secondly, download yourself some very useful applications: maps.me (an offline map in which you need to pre-download the maps of those countries where you will be), citymapper (your guide on the London Underground and in general throughout the London transport system. Internet, so please follow the previous advice). The third council concerns tours from the school. Thanks to these proposals, I visited Cardiff, Cambridge, Oxford, Bass and many other cities) + every day from school you can visit local attractions, including free. And, in the fourth, enjoy every day, every hour and every minute spent in London; forget about everything and immerse yourself in the atmosphere of pubs, bridges, castles and stiff English. I wish you the best of luck on your journey to London -

 the best city of all existing.

I have already studied at different language schools in London and i definitely recommend this school if you want to have full language immersion and improve your language skills a lot.

I was very lucky with the teachers, morning classes before lunch break were led by Beata, after - Tim, for the lesson we managed to read news in the role of BBC News announcer, conduct the lawsuit as a barrister, words and consolidate topics with articles from The Guardians and The Times. Time in the classroom flew very fast, despite the huge amount of information in the lesson and this was facilitated by a large homework assignment that was asked from the very first day. For the daytime classes we were divided into groups upon interests and aims that announced on the test on the first day, for example, you are interested in business and you need to practice more in communications with partners and finances. After lunch you will have a business course or preparation for IELTS - the course will be directed to preparation to the exam and the analysis of life haсks of the structure. There is a course for lawyers, by the way, it is very popular among Turkish student judges, the government sponsors training, so there are a lot of them :) But it's very interesting, we discussed how the legal system works in Turkey, Russia, Britain, America and Korea. Lessons are taught in several textbooks, therefore the teacher issues textbooks for work in the classroom, separate teaching materials are given for homework, you do not need to carry a lot of paper with you, just a notebook :)

Social activities begin after 15 hours, so everyone has time!) At the weekend, usually trips to other cities, it's more profitable to go from school than to buy yourself and you can go with classmates, practicing English on the way :) Football, yoga , evening meetings with live music, trips to Covent Garden, Camden Market, in general, for every taste, but remember that you still need to do your homework :)

Kings London is a great school with an excellent Intensive Course! I chose a combination of General English and specialist law-related topics. During our classes, we were learning law terms, and our homework was to create contracts in English! I loved how teachers explained everything. During one class, 90 minutes, we were able to discuss law-related topics with other partners twice, learn new words, and practice new vocabulary making up sentences with them. Each class was amazing. Teachers organized our lessons so well that I didn't usually notice how an hour and a half passed. However, I didn't quite like my accommodation. The residence itself is good, but I had to spend about 40 minutes to get to the school; that was exhausting. Nevertheless, I am still in love with London and the school!

I spent a lot of time at Kings school and fell in love with London! When it was time to say goodbye to the class and the teachers, it was depressing because I had new friends and could level up my English. We were very friendly in the classroom; we attended a lot of activities from the school — almost every day after the classes we went to the center of London, Camden Market, and evening live concerts! In the afternoon classes, in addition to the morning general lessons, I took classes which prepare for IELTS, and in the 12 weeks that I spent here, my result improved from 5.5 points to a solid 7.0. Insane. I lived near the school, in the family; we discussed business in the evening, and I practiced my speaking skills.

I traveled to London for only two weeks. At home, in China, I work as an English teacher and I need a constant practice to improve the language since I teach not only children but also adult students (for example, owners of the companies or employees of corporations). I loved that the intro-test was similar to IELTS: an integrated approach to determine the student's language level. I like our teacher Tim; he pays attention to everyone in our group. I believe that the best way to practice speaking is to go to another country where English is native. Also, I'm grateful for my progress to the Kings school! Although I am leaving soon, I have already planned the next visit to London =)

I had the best month in London!

Because of a large number of students, the schedule of classes was different: one week - from 8:45, the other - from 14:00. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it and the unplanned afternoon study did not affect my fine mood and did not spoil the impression :)

I liked living in the family. They are lovely and friendly people. They always helped, they were interested in "how are things", "how was the day" and so on. We often chatted together at breakfast or dinner. They cooked awesome food, every day something new, very tasty, on Sundays they arranged a barbecue. In general, the English way of life is very quickly accustomed to; D

There were students from different countries. All the time I talked only in English, so I noticeably improved speaking and listening. I'm very glad that now I have many friends from different parts of the world, this is another great opportunity that I also received at Kings!

Teachers and in general the entire staff of the school are sympathetic and positive. Each lesson was interesting, you constantly learn something new, from the second or the third day you start to think in English.

Thank you very much to the guys from LinguaTrip for their help in selecting the school, applying for a visa and organizing this amazing trip!

My daughter came from language courses in Kings with a lot of emotions and memories)

She really liked the host family - they are close to school, talked to her constantly, asked what to cook and what she liked best-so they served what she particularly liked, the water was hot and heated the house, if it was cold, helped her, and so on

Thank you Linguatrip for help and instant assistance! Thank you! It is always very exciting to send a child on his own to a new country.

My family was very nice to me, i was very lucky with them.

Most of all the entertaining programme i liked a guided tour to Oxford.

School was great, teachers as well - but Helena was the best!

Just one thing, there were some difficulties with transfer at the airport, however, everything was well-organized.

Big thanks to LinguaTrip!
