Die Organisation und Betreuung von ESL war wunderbar und ich fühlte mich gut aufgehoben. An der Sprachschule im Aufenthaltsland arbeiteten motivierte Lehrer mit uns und ermöglichten mir einen guten Lernerfolg. Das Praktikum danach war genauso, wie ich es mir vorgestellt hatte und ich wurde gleichermassen gefordert wie gut unterstützt und konnte meine Sprachkenntnisse gleich anwenden. Würde es sofort wiederholen!
