I would love to say that Globe English Centre is a beautiful place with very nice people. They are thoughtful, helpful, nice, pleasant and they also consider any of your needs at any time. I enjoyed classes with well prepared teachers. The location of school is brilliant, right next to the heart of the city. Not only rooms are cozy but also the backyard garden, which is perfect for spending breaks and socializing with other students. The school organizes an activity for a weekday as well as Saturdays. I was very happy with them too. Housing was handy, just right next to the school building. I had a nice room for my own use and I was satisfied with it. There was nothing to worry about, all my four weeks were perfect!Show details » Read more...

I liked my classes; it was beautiful spending time with my classmates and I enjoyed learning new things. The teachers were good, they were nice and ready to help us in every situation. I liked some activities more than others; the trip to Cardiff was amazing, I loved the castle we went in and the city centre, it was really fun. I didn't like the trip to the abbey - I thought it was boring and not interesting. The activities in the afternoon were fun and helped us being all together! My favourite one was the trip to the music hill, it's been a dream come true to write and record a song! The night activities were nice, and I liked the disco but I didn't like much Zumba while the karaoke was pretty fun.
My family was strange to me, my hosting parents were very nice and kind, but they left me alone very usually and they didn't spend lot of time with me while I know lot of others hosting family did. My room was little but big enough for me, but the bed wasn't really clean. The first week I had to have dinner at home alone because they weren't there. My hosting sister and brothers basically didn't even speak to me. In the end my family was okay but I don't think that a little guy would find good with them.
Generally, my experience was amazing, I loved the school, I met so many people and we became really close friends, so I'm grateful for it. I'd totally do this again!
The classes made you feel very welcome and the teachers were very friendly and kind to me. They helped me a lot, and the host family was very nice to me. They helped me practice my English, and I felt very welcomed. I was very happy that the students were from other countries like me, so I didn't feel like it was only me who came from another country.Show details » Read more...
This week-long experience in a foreign country away from my family and my friends brought me a lot both linguistically and culturally. I found it to be a very educational trip. It allowed me to discover new things.
About my English, I discovered new words while having fun.
A trip is interesting because we learn many things in a good atmosphere. There were not many of us, which was fine.
The language was not a barrier. It was a great time, the atmosphere was very good among the students.
The teachers were also very friendly.
About my accommodation - it was really nice. The place was nice, quiet and not so far from school. My hosts were kind and friendly towards me. Thank you to them.
The stay was too short. Smiles on the faces of students and their eagerness to provide feedback to those around them when they return from traveling is much more interesting than any official statements on the need to maintain and develop these kind of initiatives.
If I had to do it again, it would be without hesitation. Hoping the next trip can be as successful as the first, with many more discoveries.
The teachers have good experience with children and they know how to handle them. The management is flexible and the program was enjoyable for children, as it has activities which encourage them to learn with full interest. The classes are ok. The building a little bit old but clean.Show details » Read more...
