BSC, Manchester
Duration: 24 weeks

Following my first months spent here, I don't regret my choice. Each day that goes by, Manchester does not cease to surprise me more. The typical and atypical pubs, live concerts, shopping, students on each corner of the street, the "Red Devils" etc... BSC is a school with a great reputation. A great variety of teachers, students from throughout the world, a team who cater for the small needs of students and numerous activities are all the ingredients necessary so that our English is at a top level at the end of our stay. Manchester represents culture and diversity with a nice mix of flavours. This city is therefore the ideal place to improve your skills in the language of Shakespeare.

The school has a central location and is easily reachable by public transport. I met many people of many different nationalities there. Thanks to the teachers and the lively courses they give, I could make great progress. If you are a football fan like me, you need to go to Manchester! I achieved one of my dreams by attending 2 football matches, it was the best atmosphere in the world!!! Apart from football, there is a lot to do in Manchester, you never get bored. The city is filled with shops, bars, night clubs, restaurants. You can also visit many things. My host family is adorable, I really felt comfortable there. In short, my language course was a great experience with a great quality/price ratio and I intend to do it again next year.

I have been living in Failsworth, Manchester with Chris, a 57-year-old lady working at Manchester library, for a week already!! She has a very pretty house with garden, I stay in a large bedroom, everything is perfect in the house and Chris is really nice to me!!
I’m glad I arrived at her place :)
At school, everything is fine, I have a pre-intermediate level, I’m happy.
In Manchester, people are friendly, I’m starting to make new friends, at first it wasn’t easy but as time goes by, and thanks to the school’s activities, I was able to meet other students.
