"Interesting and different"

Cristina Bardan, student from Mexico

The school is nice, I took my classes from the middle of October to the middle of December.

Teachers: I found that some teachers are way better than others, especially one teacher, Sonia was really bad, she only reads the book and gives examples of the book and never corrects you when you say or write something wrong.

On the other end, I also took classes with Fabrice which in my opinion it's the best teacher in the whole school, he really loves his job and you can feel his energy, he makes it his job to really make you understand and learn the language.

The structure of the classes: I think is good, I really liked it, they have like cycles and it's easy to follow. When the teachers see that your level is good they move you up.

The only thing that I didn't like it's that the objective of the school is oral production, so they don't give you enough material to practice your writing (sometimes they did but the focus was grammar, JUST grammar and as homework), it was until level B2 that the teacher gave us a project to really practice our writing, full grammar, syntax, vocabulary and all without aid.

Facilities & location: The school it's inside College Merici, which it's really well located, it's near downtown and next to a park. The major buses pass nearby and it's easy to move around from there.

Activities: they are nice, I only attended to three but they are really well organized and not that expensive.

Housing: the service I receive from the school was amazing, I was placed with a really nice family but they didn't make me feel welcome, I felt watched and they really monitored my every move I felt like I couldn't make a mistake or break any rule or my 'mom' would lose it. I talked to the coordinator and she was really understanding of the situation and help me with the transition. My next family was the best, it was a little far from the school but totally worth the commute.
