Je suis partie deux semaines à Bath et j'ai adoré cette ville ! Il y a tellement de choses à faire et à visiter à Bath et aux alentours que l'on ne s'ennuie jamais ! Je repartirais la bas sans hésiter ! Kaplan a Bath est une très bonne école et les professeurs très intéressants. C'est aussi l'occasion de rencontrait des personnes de toutes les nationalités ! Je suis restée dans une résidence étudiante pendant deux semaines et j'ai vraiment adore cela. En effet, j'étais en plein centre ville et je pouvais tour faire à pieds. J'étais libre de sortir à l'heure que je voulais. L'école propose chaque semaine un grand choix d'activités qui permettent de faire de nouvelles connaissances et de profiter au mieux de la ville

« Les différents musées de la ville sont à visiter absolument : le fashion museum, le roman Bath museum ou bien encore la Victoria art gallery ! C'est une ville vraiment magnifique à visiter. Ne surtout pas manquer le circus, le royal crescent ou bien encore l'abbaye qui est vraiment magnifique. Si vous avez la possibilité de visiter les alentours de la ville c'est aussi magnifique à faire et à voir ! »

Bath est une très belle ville, pas trop grande. J'ai beaucoup apprécié car il y a souvent des animations dans la rue (guitariste,chanteur amateur...). La famille avec qui j'ai passé ces 3 mois était vraiment très bien, très accueillante et toujours la dans le besoin.

« Si assolutamente. La Kaplan ha un metodo di insegnamento eccellente, dalle lezioni alle attività extra di supporto per l'apprendimento e il miglioramento della lingua. Gli insegnanti sono eccezionali. Il mio in particolare, Simon Green, è un insegnante di altissimo livello. A lezione ci "bombardava" piacevolmente e positivamente di stimoli per migliorare il nostro livello attraverso diversi metodi di approccio quali giochi, video, canzoni, film, siti internet, social networks per insegnanti e studenti. In tal modo abbiamo sempre trattato regole grammaticali diverse senza mai annoiarci ed insistendo sulle abilità quali writing, listening, speaking, use of english and reading. Nella lezione di language skills con l'insegnante Liz ho appreso il modo in cui scrivere ed impostare un testo inglese che non dimenticherò mai. Finite le lezioni i miei progressi li ho ottenuti frequentando i "clubs", lezioni facoltative concernenti ogni giorno argomenti diversi ed interessanti, frequentando lo study centre della scuola dove è possibile studiare, utilizzare pc e noleggiare libri o dvd e partecipando inoltre alle social activities organizzate dalla scuola che servono per fare amicizia (ovviamente in inglese), acuistare maggior sicurezza nello speaking e migliorare il listening. »

Testimonials

Marie-Claude Oreiller
Marie-Claude Oreiller

I wanted to do a language study trip in England and ESL offered me to take a language course at the Kaplan school in Bath. It was a very good choice. In Bath, you can visit the thermal baths, the cathedral, relax in Victoria park and meet new people in the numerous pubs: you never get bored! I went there several times and attended 8 weeks of classes as a whole. The best method for learning is to work in groups or pairs as it makes for good interaction among students, which allows you to speak. I am now starting to think in English and my listening skills are getting better everyday. I liked the friendly atmosphere at the school a lot. My host family gave me a great welcome during my first stay. I’ve kept in touch with them and we are now friends. Every time I go back to Bath, I stay at their place.

Kaplan International Colleges, Bath
Duration: 12 weeks

I spent three months in Bath to study at the Kaplan International Colleges, which offer many activities and tours, allowing me to visit England a bit and to discover the customs of the country – especially thanks to my host family, who was very considerate towards me. The English classes, which were well managed by the school and the teachers, allowed me to go from the intermediate level to the advanced level within 3 months. I really liked the city of Bath, which is quiet and safe and offers many activities and is really beautiful thanks to its well-preserved architecture. In a nutshell, it was a great stay, rich in discoveries and encounters. It’s a pity it has to end…
