On my first day I was greeted by the governor of the residence, one can scare at first because I had a hard time understanding the language especially when there are accents that add up, but in the end he reassured me and explain how life in Burlington student residency works.
And to finish the courses I had with my teacher James was super useful and concrete because what I learned in class help me better to talk to other people outside of class (other students, a passer-by in the street) ..) Thanks to you for it's 2 weeks.
Ps: The bunk bed I had was not comfortable but the chef's dishes were really excellent.
Every thing was fine.
In my opinion, a revamp to the premises is needed.
I liked everything. The teachers were very professional, rather strict. It was not allowed to use the phone during the lessons, to be late and chat. They gave homework and were often tested. Every Friday gave feedback.
The school is located near the metro station Parson green (7 minutes walk) and the bus stop Radipole Road (3 minutes walk). Also close is the budget supermarket Tesco.
Wifi works at the school, there is a library where you can rent a book. And there is a rest zone for students, in which there are computers.
On Fridays we went to the nearest pub with the whole group, including the teacher. It was fun and informative to communicate in an informal atmosphere.
I do not recommend staying in a school residence, because the rooms were not cleaned, 4-6 people can live at the same time. Only 3 rooms: 1 for boys and 2 for girls. The bathrooms are separate, but there are more girls, so there are queues in the mornings and evenings. And of course, there are so many young students that the residence can be quite noisy.
Meals are available in the school canteen. Not very tasty, but edible.
In general, I am satisfied with the educational process at school and not particularly with living.
I had enjoyed learning English with my teacher, Gavin, very much. My homestay, where I stayed in, is very good and comfortable. The owners are very good because they always take care me :) I thought that school is located in good area because of many facilities around the location and easily accession.Show details » Read more...
