I studied in London Embassy CES School for three weeks, though first I planned to stay in the United Kingdom only two weeks but later I extended the course.
I want to say that I fell in love not only with this beautiful, fantastic and safe country with lots of interesting and amazing places but I liked the school and the way of teaching very much.
Our morning classes were from 9 till 13 o’clock, then after lunch some students could have afternoon classes or take part in social programme, i.e. go sightseeing together with the group and the staff from the school. The classes are well - equipped and at the lessons teachers use modern technology. All lessons were very interesting: we discussed different vital problems, worked in pairs or in groups, watched films, etc. Besides we had a large library with a lot of literature and English famous films on DVD; here we could either study or use Internet in it. The teachers are well-experienced, polite, kind and always ready to help in any situation.
As for my home stay I don’t have enough words to express everything I want to tell. To be honest at the beginning I was afraid to go to Britain but later I understood that it’s a safe country with a great number of cameras everywhere; and the family takes care of you during your stay, they are interested if you like your room and food or if you have any questions or problems; and the school controls if you are happy or not and if you have any problems you can easily discuss it even with the director.
I shared a room in two - storied house with beautiful small garden; all rooms were clean and cosy. On the first day I was warmly welcomed by the Buttles’ and showed the house, my room and the bathroom. In the mornings we had a typical English breakfast: tea with milk, cornflakes, toasts with jam; in the evenings they prepared for us delicious food. Every day they asked me how the day was; we spoke about everything. I consider that it’s an excellent language practice!
During my stay in Britain I learnt a lot about Britain, English people, their traditions, customs, visited a lot of places, including even other cities like Oxford and Brighton and made a lot of friends from different countries.
I think that the UK is worth visiting and Embassy CES School is the best International language school to improve your English skills.
I am very happy that I had a chance to visit Britain and I am grateful to Pulsar educational agency, especially to the director Gyuzel Galimova, who helped me to organize it and supported me before the departure, giving valuable pieces of advice. Thank you!
