About studying: My goal was to improve the overall level of English and prepare for the IELTS exam. During the training, I attended almost all the courses that are in school. If you don't like the subject or teacher, you can easily change them (if therefree space in another group). It is very convenient. But in my period of study there were no available seats. I could only transfer to another group to prepare for the IELTS exam. It is important to get a good teacher! 1) General English course was interested and useful. We have expanded the vocabulary by discussing various topics from daily life. For example, topics such as home improvement, books, movies, etc. It was an easy, relaxed form of training. The teachers were nice. 2) I left the Academic English course for the second day. The teacher was very tedious. We sat and read scientific articles. I think it's a waste of time. 3) Business English is the best and most useful course for me. The teacher's name was Steve. His lessons were energetic, effective and well organized. We learned business vocabulary and discussed a variety of topics. I advise everyone to attend this course.
4) I think I had the wrong teachers to prepare for the IELTS exam. They often changed, so the structure of learning was broken. But the students told me that there is another teacher and many of them praised her. I don't remember her name. But I believe that she is the only chance for those who want to prepare well for the exams. I can say that this school is not the best place to prepare for the IELTS exam and to prepare for admission to universities in the UK (especially for the money I paid). But I wasn't at any other school. They didn't spend enough time on grammar. But if you want to improve only the conversational level of English and expand the vocabulary, then this school will suits you. About school and leisure: The school building is located in the city center, near the metro and bus stops. People are friendly and always ready to help. Russian citizens were few in October. Most of the students were from South America, Asia, Italy and Switzerland. In the UK it was hard to find food suitable for me, so I ate in the school canteen 70% of the time. Mostly the food was delicious. Activities: I advice to buy tickets at the school. It is cheaper and more convenient. The school offers a variety of excursions. And also we visited bars every Friday. You need to make an OYSTER student card that will save you £ 70. In conclusion, I want to say that this school is normal, if you don't expect anything special from it. But if you want to learn English perfectly, you better find another school.
