TESTIMONIALS

Patricia Ladero Pradas

I was very happy about the school. The classes helped me improving my English level and the whole organization worked very well. I stayed at the Liberty Plaza residence, which was absolutely perfect. It took me only 30 minutes to reach the school and my accommodation was pretty big and well equipped, as the rest of the residence was. The Wi-Fi worked very well. During my stay in London, I basically never spoke Spanish. It was an unforgettable experience.

My experience at Atlantic Language in Galway was short (3 weeks) but intense. This was my third immersion experience in Anglo-Saxon territory, as I had been to Tornoto and Edinburgh, but it was the best one. As to the teachers, I only have pleasant memories. Atlantic is like a big family!

I fell in love with Galway immediately. I had already been there for a short visit a few years ago, but, even though it may sound cliché, its people are lovely and extremely friendly, which is essential in order to feel welcome. Regarding its geographical location, it allows to explore lots of unforgettable territories (Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, Kylemore Abbey in Connemara or Sligo, up north). I was quite busy on the weekends!

Galway is like an everlasting music festival: street musicians, buskers… everywhere! I remember the song that they play before closing the pubs, “Galway girl”, a classic for locals. I want to return!

I liked the 25+ programme lessons especially the vocabulary quiz, the speaking and listening parts and practicing meetings.
There were nice social programmes, many different activities. I chose Portmerion in North Wales and The Lake District, both are great. My hosts are friendly and nice people. The food was very good every day.
Chester was for me a great experience in a small cute city.
