I can say this: Living in a family is good. The main thing is that they should be Americans. It is necessary to use this resource and in free time to communicate on relevant topics. Outside of school go, meet and make local friends - this is the source of rapid progress and confidence in the language.

It was one of the happiest months of my life. When I left, I cried. For me, the trip was an amazing combination of life experience in a new place (I gave up all tourist habits and just lived), enjoying the warmth and the ocean and the huge progress in my English (came with 45 points - bumped from 62). From the tips I can here, what to say:

1. Living in a family is good, The main thing is that they are Americans. It is necessary to use this resource and in free time to communicate on relevant topics (for example, my house family and we watched the TV shows about Obama and Trump because my arrival was for the inauguration)

2. Do not spend too much time with classmates - they are cool, but they are speaking wrong and the habit of communicating in broken English.

3. Spend your time in homework and classes - everything is interesting and it works very well together

4. Outside the school, go and meet local friends - this is the source of rapid progress and confidence in the language .

Thank you so much! And if I have the opportunity, I will repeat this trip, because I am confident that there will be new progress.

Не рекомендую эту школу. Не вернули депозит ($150) когда мне было отказано в визе. Причина отказа - первая поездка за рубеж. Школа не пошла на встречу. В итоге потерял деньги. Но всё же удалось съездить на Мальту. А в США попробую в следующем году. Школу выберу однозначно другую,такую, чтобы в случае подобной ситуации депозит возвращала.

The trip from the airport up to the hotel was very short. The hotel was magnificent. The personnel was very kind and friendly, the triple numbers were tidied every day, breakfast and dinner menu varied a lot, we were spending our free time in the swimming pool and in the gymnasium, and in the business center you can use a computer free. Also in the whole territory of the hotel, there was free Wi-Fi. It is important how the personnel treats the lost articles, for example, they have returned the lost purse to my friend. In the ground floor, there was always a ready to help school employee. As for the accompanying, the personnel of the school always accompanied us whenever we left the hotel / school territory. The school was located in 10-15 minutes ride from the hotel. It had 2 floors, new machinery, excellent teachers, who had an individual approach to everyone, not a single student left unattended. On the first day there was a test to divide the students in groups it depending on the level of their knowledge of English. Every Tuesday the first lesson was dedicated to introducing the newcomers to help them get accustomed to the school. Nevertheless, having two lessons, 100 minutes each, was really hard. The long lessons provided.

Every day after the classes we were went to an excursion or to the beach. On weekends, we had a field trip. Sociable school personnel accompanied us to all the excursions. Most of the activities and excursions were very interesting and informative. Everything was organized perfectly, that's why it was quite difficult to lost, since the TLA personnel was answering to all the questions, even if you ask the same question many times. They all were very patient and understand what you are talking about very fast.

In general, everything was excellent, the school and the hotel are perfectly equipped, kind and patient hotel and school personnel answered all the questions and helped to resolve all the problems I had. Interesting and diverse daily program made this trip unforgettable. I would come here again!

Academy TLA takes up two floors. 4th floor is the main one, but there are classrooms on the 3rd floor as well. Everything is modern and new. A lot of computers, you can always find a free one and write a letter to family and friends. Free Wi-Fi is available. On the first day newcomers were tested. The test was conducted by the school Director Marco Pina. First we got acquainted with each other, checked our speaking abilities. Then there was a listening test. The next day we found out our results, but rather which group we were in. The staff is very friendly, every staff member knows each student by name, which is very nice. On Mondays they organize a welcome Breakfast for new students and for everyone else. On Fridays - cupcake holiday, because this is the last day of school for some students. The school has vending machines that sell all sorts of chocolates, cookies, Coca-Cola. Tea, coffee, water is free for all students. Eating outside the kitchen is strictly prohibited. Also, the staff does not approve of students not speaking English. A lot of students from Saudi Arabia, Latin America and Switzerland. Almost no one from Russia. I met 2 guys from Russia, but they were in other groups.
