This was my first trip to London and especially to study. I didn’t have any expectations because it was my first time. It was really convenient that the schools were 5 minutes’ walk away from the metro and there was a big park 10 minutes away. I came earlier on the first day. Registration of the documents went fast because I passed a test in Moscow to know my level of the language. When I came, I learned that this group wasn’t a new one. All the new students join the group and start learning what everybody else do. A lot of students, who came for a long time, had textbooks. Those, who came for a short one, were given printed pages. I didn’t like the fact that there were a lot of Russian speakers in a group. We had 20 students and teachers didn’t have time for every one of us. During the course, I had 2 teachers: Josh and Pam. Lessons were interesting with both of them but I liked Pam more. Now I know: it is better to pay more and join a smaller group with no Russian students.

The point is that it’s absolutely not what I’ve expected – I thought that we are going to have a separate group, start at a particular day, pass a course with the specific structure, but it’s just regular lessons, that is I just join a group and get through some random topics, and that’s it. In my opinion, that’s not an “intensive course” at all… I absolutely didn’t like this school… it’s not what I expected, not at all…

I was divided to Advanced group, but, in my view, the students in the group are lower than Advanced. There is no point to study in such conditions… I can see that this course would give me nothing. I can see that school is overload, all group are mixed.

I am so disappointed.. there is no point to continue my studies

It was my first trip to London and to LSC Stanton. It was incredible. I have such amazing impressions after this trip. I like school very much. There are very nice and friendly teachers, who always ready to help you. School's location is noteworthy. It's right in the city center (1st zone) and just a few minutes walking from lots of tourist destinations. I want to thank all Linguatrip team and my managers, Marina and Aigul, in particular. They're real professionals in their field: always immediately respond to all questions and really care about their clients. And they try to keep in on the top level.

I want to start my review with the fact that if you do not know whether to go to language courses, then my answer is definitely you need to go. My choice is LSC Stanton, because my budget was limited, but I wanted to go to London. There were no reviews about this school on the site. LSC Stanton is excellent, the staff is always ready to answer any questions. Russian-speakers were there. But these were two groups of students, they studied separately. On the second day the group was a pair of Russian-speakers. But after that, I never saw them again. People go to learn the language, so everyone speaks only English. Before going to school on my e-mail came online test to determine the level of proficiency, so courses began on the first day. And also we were shown the school and tell about the rules. On weekdays lessons run from 1 PM to 4 PM. If you come to study for less than 4 weeks, then you do not need to buy schoolbooks, copies of pages are given at each lesson. Classes interesting, so passed imperceptibly. There were also homework assignments. If you have a language barrier (I had), then after the trip it definitely will not. The courses are designed to teach you to speak English. There is a supermarket in the same building. And there are many shops nearby. Hyde Park and Oxford street are within walking distance of the school. The location is very convenient. The accommodation was great. I arrived late at night, but mistress met very friendly and showed the house. There was a separate fitted kitchen and there were no restrictions in food and water. Breakfast was included in the price. Also the room was heated. When something was needed, the mistress of the house all brought or bought. Opposite the house there was a bus stop and the train station was a three-minute walk away. Mistress of the house and I talked about everything every day. It was a very good communication practice. The general feeling about this trip is only delight! The organization is beautiful. The documents were issued within a month. The visa was given after 15 days. If you have any questions, managers will promptly answer.
