TESTIMONIALS

Hannelore V.

Bournemouth is a pleasant city with a nice beach, lots of sports facilities and beautiful gardens. My two-weeks stay was a great experience. I took classes at Kings. This school has a very good reputation and its teaching staff is very professional and friendly. Here I was able to practise my English with native speakers. I find it important to use my English in real-life situations since the language is becoming increasingly important internationally and in interdisciplinary contexts. I stayed with a British host family, something I really recommend. In retrospect, I would even recommend attending a summer school at a younger age, for instance, during one's last high-school year. ESL really helped me along in my decision-making and I gained great confidence in this organization. I had a most unforgettable experience and would not hesitate repeating it!

This has been such an incredible new experience for me… it’s surpassed my expectations and I’m hardly ever home! I’m really liking the course at St. Giles International. My teacher is pretty energetic which is really nice because it livens up the class and helps you feel less embarrassed to speak up.

New York offers so many cultural and entertainment options. I participate in as many of the activities organised by the school as I can; for example, we went to the Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets baseball game, and I thought it was something interesting and different.

I wanted to study here at Kings to improve not only my level of general English, but also my knowledge of legal English. Holding a degree both in business administration and management and in law, I believe that studying here is an opportunity to further my legal career.

On one hand, during the classes we learned a considerable amount of new terms and vocabulary, which are clearly important from many points of view: from the perspective of someone seeking to pass a specific exam or to someone who simply wishes to improve their CV or learn general English for daily life.

On the other hand, the shared apartments that belong to Kings are just a few minutes away and the perfect convenience for someone interested in studying here. In addition to its privileged nearby location and having every necessary service, the living spaces are new and perfectly equipped for daily use.
