Cambridge es un poco aburrido pero bien no tengo queja. Quizas la proxima vez elija otro destino St Giles es una escuela reconocida internacionalmente pero en concreto St Giles Cambridge que abrio recientemente en enero no tiene mucha calidad. Es una opinion general de todos los estudiantes. Muchos se cambiaron de ubicacion por ejemplo a Londres durante el curso porque la calidad de la enseñanza es mejor El nivel de enseñanza muy general... tenia que pedir muchas veces deberes y material extra porque no nos mandaban tarea para casa. De todos modos esto se lo transmiti al profesor y a la directora de educacion del centro. Algo cambio pero son comentarios de todos los estudiantes del centro. La mejor parte de mi experiencia ha sido la familia. Una mujer encantadora con capacidad para seis estudiantes. Todo super limpio, cocinaba excelentemente y nos dedicaba muchas horas en la cena para conversar. Un 10!!! Si todos los fines de semana hacia excursiones con ellos. Todo bien
