    TESTIMONIALS

    In Spain, I read and write in English but I rarely speak in English so I wanted to improve my speaking and listening as much as possible in my 4 weeks in Newcastle. I was recommended this city by my English teacher in Valencia and I like it here. I’m very happy with my teacher and classes at International House Newcastle and I have learned a lot. I study 25 hours a week but, to be honest, I would like to study even more! The school is great and everyone is friendly – I feel very welcome. The city has lots of interesting places to visit too. I love the buildings, cathedrals, museums and, of course, the bridges! I visited Edinburgh with the school’s social programme too – it was beautiful but freezing! I hope to come back to Newcastle next summer with my family.

    My stay at Liverpool School of English was completely worthwhile. The quality of the lessons is excellent and the methodology that teachers apply invites the group to participate and practice their speaking skills, which is very useful if you’re looking to gain confidence in the language. The progress you make is noticeable because the lessons are quite intensive.

    As to Liverpool, it is a very pleasant city. I explored it in my free time: I visited all the locations that The Beatles made famous, as well as the recently restored port or the shopping areas around the school. The city is worth it!

    I definitely recommend this destination!

    My language stay in Liverpool was incredible. I spent 3 weeks there, and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life. Both the school and the residence (The Arch) were amazing: the staff was very professional and teachers were really good. When there was a problem, they were all very helpful. Making new friends was easy, both in school and at the residence; and I also met some nice locals who loved Spanish people! I highly recommend this city. With ESL, everything was perfect; it was my second language trip with them and I will surely repeat the experience.
