The daughter returned from the trip, and I would like to leave feedback to you:

1. Family - wonderful, sympathetic and good people

2. School - there are so many Russians in the school, so for those who want to be completely in a foreign environment, this is not a suitable option at all.

In general, thanks for the organization to Ekaterina from Linguatrip personally.

I was one month in Oxford International London Greenwich, living in a host family.

So, about the teaching. I liked the school, the classes were pleasant, the teachers were differents: somebody was very interesting and productive, and with someone just a funny pastime, no more.

At school, every two weeks a student can take a progress-test. However, the certificate contains the penultimate test results.

All liked it! I went almost with zero level and in the beginning it was not much hard. If in the beginning it was even hard for me to understand what they were saying to me, then a week later I began to understand the native Britain people. I realized that 3 weeks is still not enough to fully immerse in the environment. The next time I will go to New York. I enjoyed the collaboration with you, thank you.

The residence McMillan was very good: several high-rise buildings in its fenced area with an input on a magnetic key, in one of the buildings but on the outside was a food store, runs from 7 to 23 and an ATM. Every Friday at the reception was free tea, coffee and cookies from 16 to 17.

I lived in studio single: shower, refrigerator, microwave. The room was very spacious. 15 minutes walking for the school (but you can also take the bus.)

School.

The school itself was very good: a modern room, modern furniture, there are several places for snacking food. The first day of testing (for me it was not very difficult) + with good weather walk around the local nearby area. Teaching, in principle, as elsewhere, with textbooks + discussion in a group of different topics.

As I understood, the learning process is better to take the morning hours (9.00-12.15), where the more classical training scheme. Basically, who really is engaged in teaching the language (mostly young people from Europe who come to study for 6 months or more) go exactly at this time and then they have free time for enjoy the city.

Then there are 2 more free types of lessons: 13-14.30 (practically speaking type of lesson I had) and 15 - 16.30 -classical type of training, but a little more free (not as intensive as in the morning).

I want to recommend very much not to take a lot of classes because the new information is huge and it is better to repeat and assimilate the new material in the evening.

Ordering a full day (30 hours a week), after a couple of days I refused the morning hours, because except as study + sleep (+ purchase of products), while time is winter, it gets dark early and on ordinary days something to look at London is no longer an option, there is nothing else.

The school has its extensive cultural program after lunch and on weekends.

I recommend to want to go at least for a month, but better take 2 or 3 months. Because studies are good but in fact, it's people and culture, and so we need to unite and feel the atmosphere by ourselves, communicate with different people "outside", in the usual language, which can happen on an ordinary walk or in a cafe or a museum.

It was about this school that I learned only thanks to Linguatrip (if I were traveling by myself, I would not know about it, because usually international schools offers a higher prices to students).

It was my first trip to England and the first experience of teaching English abroad.

I'm glad that I used a Linguatrip. The trip was organized as soon as possible, all my wishes were taken into account. Thanks to manager - Alexey! He was always in touch and answered any of my questions!

I liked the school very much. All teachers love their job and are always ready to help. My favorite teacher was Debra. Cheerful, comical, intelligent, interesting. He loves his work very much. From the first time I was able to explain the grammar so that finally everything was settled in my head. Activity in the school was organized very good and really it turned out cheaper than buying tickets and tours independently. I met new friends from different countries. I met new friends from different countries. In general, the atmosphere in the school reigns friendly. All students are bright and joyful. Every morning I went there with pleasure.

In general, the country is not cheap. The format of instruction is according to a textbook, the same as in Russia, only with native speakers. If you want to tighten your English - communicate more with the local population in any form. Listen, ask questions, ask again. That's where the practice is!

I just came back from London. I liked the school so much. Thank you LinguaTrip for answering all of my questions, for helping. Ekaterina helped me with visa and Alexei helped a lot consulting about the school and other questions.

Thank you for helping once I was in school:)

It's not bad to live in the host family, however, I had some issues. Next time I book courses, I will choose MacMilan (I visited the residence and it's great): close to the school, bright and clean, shops and bus stops nearby.

Now let's talk about the school:

I like the school very much! I love the teachers, they are great and kind, sincere and helpful people! My teachers were Nick, John and Shelly. I also talked with other teachers outside of school. Thank you!

I adore John, he's such a great teacher! He can pinpoint the weak points in your English and give you a clear understanding of the subject.

I liked social program, it was great! Pubs, museums, trips to other towns.

Thank you Oxford International for friendly atmosphere!

The school is equipped with everything: bright classes, interactive software, places for individual students. There are some shops nearby where you can buy everything and cinema and DLR station in the vicinity.

I can not remember any disadvantages.

Thank you Linguatrip for help and support!

It was great and much appreciated!

I like to give a constructive feedback with pluses and minuses that can be useful, here we are:

LinguaTrip:

You guys are doing a great job, I`m very happy that I chose you. Thank you.

Actually I can not say what you can improve at this moment, just stay at the same level and continue to be client oriented service.

I`d like to say particular thank you to Ekaterina who helped me to get a Visa. It was not easy and only from the second attempt I`ve got it. Without her assistance I wouldn`t applied my visa application for a second time.

I give 10 points from 10.

School:

Good school and brilliant teachers(especially Debra:). Nothing blow minding but in general the school on a good level. Not small classes with tables that was very comfortable(some schools has a chair-table that I don`t like). Good rest area. Good place in London. Afternoon classes were very convenient for me because I had enough time to sleep well and I also had some free time before school to spend it for homework or visit museums, exhibitions, etc., because it is not possible to visit it after. Most of them works from 10 00 - 17 00.

There is only one thing that disappointing me about this school - it is their after classes activity which is not well organized. So be ready to come up with your own activities after classes with new foreign friends.

I give 9 points from 10.

Accommodation:

Clean room, good host and delicious meals but I expected more interaction with a British family.

Sometimes was a bit cold at home but not so critical.

I give 8 points from 10.

That was just amazing trip, hope I`ll come back in a few month. I`ve been at school only for two weeks and I`d recommend to stay at least for one month to see progress in your language skills.

I studied at UIC Greenwich school from 6 to 13 November.

First, I would like to thank you for the service that enable to book the trip online and to prepare all the necessary documents properly.

I took an intensive course (from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm), 40 lessons per week. The only disadvantage of this course is that the social programm is intended for thouse who ends at 2:30 pm. So I visited only the Cambridge Theatre from school.

I lived at McMillan residence. Unfortunately, I was a little bit dissapoited with this accommodation. Sometimes there were problems with the light, bathroom equipment were dirty and etc.

I liked the school, the course and, especially, the teachers (Debra and Nick were brilliant). They are very polite, friendly and helpful, they motivate you to speak English, using in their work a lot of interactive and entertaining methods.

It was an amazing trip to London and, especially, to UIC Greenwich school! Great teachers, school staff, friendly students. I have made a lot of new friends, we celebrated my Birthday together.

Our teacher Phill was so helpful and positive! All the days of my trip were full of new events: social activities, walkings with friends, shopping, concerts.

In the near future I would like to visit London again.

Для меня, как и для многих, это поездка эта была первой. Я очень волновалась, постоянно думала, что у меня недостаточный уровень английского языка, что я не смогу понимать одноклассников и учителей. Все мои страхи рассеялись после прохождения паспортного контроля. Я поняла, что если я смогла понять мужчину, который меня проверял, то и остальных смогу понять. Это предало мне уверенности в себе.

Школа очень современная и у нее удобное место расположения, т.к. рядом находятся автобусные остановки и станция DLR. На каждую неделю составлялись социальные программы, так же в школе можно было приобрести билеты в театры, на Лондонский глаз и т.д. со скидкой. Учителя и персонал очень приветливые, они всегда помогали, если у меня возникали какие-либо вопросы. Программа обучения мне очень понравилась, потому что она охватывает все аспекты жизни. Частые игры и интересные задания помогали пополнять словарный запас, улучшать грамматику, да и вообще делали урок познавательным и веселым. В классе всегда была непринужденная атмосфера и постоянные шутки учителей и студентов, что очень радовало. Я очень благодарна своим учителям – Нику и Джону. Их уроки были сплошным удовольствием, хотелось учиться еще и еще.

Все одноклассники были очень приветливыми. Я познакомилась с людьми абсолютно из разных стран: Бразилия, Южная и Северная Корея, Таиланд, Лаос, Франция, Германия, Китай, Турция, Колумбия, Италия, Швеция, Беларусь, ну и конечно же Россия) До уроков мы постоянно разговаривали на разные темы, спрашивали друг друга о странах и на выходных, или же после уроков, ездили в ТЦ или гуляли по Лондону. И что очень важно для меня (мне 16), не было возрастного барьера, все относились друг к другу одинаково. За три недели проведенных в Лондоне, общаясь с людьми, я даже не замечала, что разговариваю на английском и воспринять чужой речи (я чаще всего общалась с людьми моего уровня и выше) не составляло труда.

Еще раз большое спасибо!

This is my first educational trip to other country. When planning the trip I had some doubts about the effectiveness of this kind education. After these 3 weeks in London I may say that it was a good choice.

The UIC school in Greenwich are is modern, comfortable. The learning process and topics discussed can help you to widen the mental outlook: different games, real examples.

I want to thank you the Linguatrip company, especially, visa manager - Ekaterina for her help and assistance during the visa obtainment.

I have visited the UIC school in Greenwich from 18.09.16 to 02.10.16.

This was my first trip to England and my first experience of studying abroad. I have stayed at McMillan residence which was located in 15 minutes walk from school. I must say that the location of the school itself and the residence really good. You can reach everything you want very fast and by several ways. I mostly travelled by London tube. Greenwich is an interesting and beautiful district in London, where you can find a lot of sightseeings, places to go, stores and caffes.

As to teaching process, everything was great - the teachers, classes, interesting lessons. The school itself is very modern, stylish and comfortable.

My trip to Britain was impulsive. In a few days we collected all the necessary documents, translated it into English with Linguatrip visa manager. After some quick actions the visa has been obtained.

I literally love this school! All the teachers and staff are very friendly and helpful. They all want you to be happy and it really works! All classes are equipped with interactive desks. The lessons goes in a different manner than in Russia.

Near the school there are a lot of magazines and caffes where you can eat.

Studying English in London was a dream of mine for a long time. Or rather, I wanted to improve my language skills, having the experience of communicating with native speakers. And also take an extra language course, and explore the capital of Great Britain.

Arranging a tour myself seemed risky and besides I could afford to turn to professionals who have experience in organizing study trips. So my expectations were met. I studied at UIC Greenwich, this is zone 2 of London. Just so you know – the main London attractions are concentrated in zones 1-2. So, it was basically center.

Accommodation was organized in the MacMillan residence, I had an option of a local family, but I didn't venture that. Although some students spoke very well of the living in private apartments... I don't know, I didn't try it. Food – I opted for self-catering. However, I did myself well, went shopping, visited museums... Overall, the budget amounted to this: 80 thousand rubles on living and 80 thousand rubles on school. Plus some amount on entertainment. But the latter isn't necessary, and the accommodation, frankly, could be cheaper. So with "economical" approach a month in London with studying will cost somewhere around 120...150 thousand rubles. Basically, even better than, for example, a trip for a couple of weeks to the Dominican Republic. Two weeks of lazy rest on the beach versus a month in London with study and cultural program. Maybe not as cheap, but at least to your own advantage.

The social programme was organized by the school and was very rich. However, I made a lot of effort myself to plan the activities I wanted and the school helped me with the implementation of the plan. Turned out just great! I think I managed to visit almost all the museums and musicals in a month. Been to many clubs, tried different restaurants, visited trendy galleries, and managed to go to other English cities as well.. 100 % satisfaction for any taste is guaranteed.

Speaking about the learning process, it will be as useful as you make it be, no one is going to compel you to study... I honestly did everything I was supposed to... as a result, my level went up, which I can tell without any tests. Although tests confirm the result too. The course is organized so that classes last only until afternoon. It is very convenient, because the London museums close at 6 PM, so there was just enough time left for sightseeing. By the way, there are students that never even went out of Greenwich. Why? I don't know... So, overall, a very positive experience. Language improved, tons of emotions from the London life and its surroundings.

I would happily go again!

I want to thank LinguaTrip for the excellent trip to school UIC. I studied at the School of English in London from August to September, during this time I met students from different countries: Italy, Spain, France, Turkey, Switzerland, Korea, Thailand and many others. By the way, there were very few Russian-speaking students in the school. It didn't matter what language level you had, every day would be informative and fun, every day teachers give exercises on grammar, vocabulary and spoken English, so over the course of study I managed to fix all my problems with English. UIC School has an excellent location with many bars, pubs, and tourist attractions that I was visiting during breaks between lessons. It took 20 minutes by subway to get the city center from Greenwich, so if I wanted to get the museums, most of which closed at 5-6 in the evening, I had to go right after classes. Every day there was some social event. And the guys that make the entertainment program can help you with the tickets for the event, thats how I managed to buy tickets to a football match in Manchester. As I lived in a student residence, school was within 15minutes of walking. I enjoyed the trip a lot and I would recommend the school to anyone:)

I would like to thank manager Natalia for her quick and accurate work, starting from visa (I had to wait a month to get a visa, Natalia helped and morally assured that I won't be refused a visa, which was very comforting) and ending with the settling of any issues that arose while living and studying in the country.

School's advantages:

If you goal is to make a lot of friends around the world, a language school is the place where you can do it easily (a sort of a summer camp, a nice forgotten feeling). Once again I was reassured that a language should be learned where it is spoken. London proved to a beautiful place for that (after all, the British speak much more clearly than Americans, whom I found very difficult to understand while in New York). The city itself evoke only 100% positive emotions. Some friends of mine said that the weather in London, even in July, was far from ideal. We were very lucky. The weather was wonderful during all 2 weeks, except for some time. That allowed us to travel around the whole city and enjoy its beauty! I can honestly say that I am ready to go to any language school just for London, and not only that, I am ready to move, too))) the English are very friendly and courteous. No one refused to help us. Even if they didn't know how to get from point a to point b, they would get out their phone and look at the map. Very nice. Judging by myself, I can tell that if I do not know the way, I will never waste my time on looking something up for a stranger. But here it's a completely different situation. Maybe I should reconsider my views!

Disadvantages of school:

There weren't many things that I didn't like, but there were some. First, I'll start with the host family. In my experience, better not choose a host family. It will not be easy for people who are quite grown up and are used to living a certain way to accept the proposed conditions. Starting from housing and ending with the family (some information about the family was a bit misrepresented). The second thing that struck me as odd was the school's approach towards education of their students, in the following respect: our trip was during the Easter holidays (Friday and Monday), so the school, accordingly, did not work those two days. All the teachers told us in the first week that the extra classes can be taken on the second week. But in the end I had to approach my teacher every day, in order to find out on what day I can take them, but on the second to last day of school the information still wasn't there. Eventually, I had to go from office to office, until they apparently realized that it was easier to give me those extra classes than have to explain why not)). Finally I was given a class, but they forgot to mention that the level of this class was going to be very different from mine. Thus, my day started with Intermediate, continued with Upper - and ended with Pre-. Well, the school was obviously not aiming to build a good learning scheme, knowing that they have holidays, but to satisfy my wish to spend an additional 3 hours at school and thereby to close the issue. I guess if my course was for a month or two, I, like any other tourist, would have rushed to the city centre and would have been happy to have more days off, but I was only there for 2 weeks and wanted a fruitful learning experience).

Thank you, LinguaTrip managers, for helping me choose the school! I studied at UIC Greenwich School.The day after booking I received an invitation from the school with which I easily got a visa. I went for 2 weeks, but loved the school so much, that I extended my stay.

The school has everything a student needs: great staff, white boards, social activities, wireless internet. Even if you still have any problems with your language, you can always have some free extra classes after school.

I want to sincerely thank LinguaTrip for my amazing July 2013! I spent it at UIC Greenwich school.

And despite the fact that the verb here is in the past tense, I will never forget that magical time. I want to underline the perfect organization of the trip from the beginning to the end. But if you consider the fact that, theoretically, I am very hard to please in such things, you can safely say that my trip deserves to be called MAGICAL...:)) once again, huge thanks!! As for the school, I would give it all 5 stars. It is wonderful work of entire administration, excellent technical equipment, and amazing organization of the learning process....furthermore, the school is located in the most picturesque area of London, in my opinion. So the next time I will go only there!! : ))) And the next ... And the next....

LinguaTrip has made my life so much easier! I booked a school myself first time and ended up booking non-accredited school and didn't get my visa. Luckily I found out about LinguaTrip and was quickly able to switch to another school.

This is an amazing city with great heritage and culture. I was surprised by the weather - sun was shining every day. One of LinguaTrip managers has recommended UIC Greenwich school, which is located in a nice area in London not far from the Cutty Sark ship, the National Marine Museum, university, observatory and a great park with deers! I lived in a residence next door to the school, which is extremely convenient as it took me only 3 minutes to get to school from door to door.

After the first testing I got the Upper Intermediate Level

The school itself is great, well-equipped, newly refurbished, filled with computers and interactive whiteboards. They have a very good nationality mix in the classrooms. I had a wonderful opportunity to listen to spanish and korean accents for a month and a half:) In my group we had schoolchildren, students, adults from Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Turkey, China, South Korea, Thailand, Brazil, Colombia and Chile. All were very nice and fun, we had a great time during and after class.

Over the course of study I met six teachers. For the morning classes my teachers were Tom and Nick, and afternoon (skills) class - another Tom, he was a son of a diplomat, visited over forty countries, knows a lot - it was always interesting to talk to him on various topics. Also, it's always better to have British teachers, preferably men -they are less fussy, they talk fast, as if you were British too. During the class there is always a friendly and informal atmosphere, lots of jokes and laughter. What really pleased me - the English are so brilliant in explaining the grammar, that it becomes clear the first time you hear it. My subjective opinion is that you will be able to experience the charm of the English language only with them, because, for example, with the two teachers from Canada and Australia (they were substitutes) that I had, I felt like I was in an elementary school English class, and it was not very interesting. There was a teacher from Italy, with an excellent English, taught us pronunciation really well, he was fun too. You can always ask teachers for help. Every day at school there is a certain teacher to whom you can come with any question or problem and to get a totally free advice or materials for self-study, take a DVD or a textbook.

The staff is very good, very helpful, you can turn to them or call them in any situation.

The school has a fairly good social program for students. They have 50% discounts for musicals and theatre. There were also weekend excursions to various places around London.

My UIC school is in Greenwich. It is a very nice area, one of the most prestigious areas in London. It is very green. That actually makes sense: Greenwich literally means the green village or the village on the green. Greenwich is famous for its Prime Meridian of the world. And besides that there's plenty of tourist attractions.

The school is very clean, which is very important for me. The people who work there are very nice. I was tested on my first day, and then I was shown some educational videos. In general, the learning process is very entertaining, partly in the game form. The groups are small. Teachers are very good at helping students improve their spoken English.

I didn't have any problems with spoken English, I had another goal: to prepare for IELTS in the shortest time possible. And that's why I had a schoolteacher coming to my house - it was so much more convenient for us. Her name was Natasha. No relation to Russia whatsoever - she is a true Welshwoman from Wales. The first two lessons we talked about different topics, she found out my weak areas. that is: articles and prepositions. Articles I hardly ever used :)) abolished them in my own world.

And then, for five days straight, Natasha was coaching me strictly for IELTS, and, surprisingly quickly I must say, I was ready, they are all professionals at the school.
