I really liked the school because it is a small school so the teachers were always available to help you if there was something you did not understand. Also, I liked the subjects that we viewed in my class, they were all very interesting and I thought it was fantastic to hear all different points of view from the other students! My teacher Charles was amazing, I can tell that he really likes his job! He was always available to help us and did not mind to take time to answer all of our questions. One thing that I would change if I could would be were I was staying. Indeed, it was far from the school so I had to take the bus each morning and I did not like it. Also, when I arrived the first week, I had to change of apartment because unfortunately the apartment that I was supposed to go to was badly maintained. Overall, my experience at Connect English was fantastic and I will always remember how fun it was.Show details » Read more...
