Les 2/3 des élèves étaient représentés par une seule nationalité, qui restaient entre eux. Notre fils s est retrouvé dans une classe de 14 avec 11 asiatiques qui restaient entre eux pour un espagnol, un saoudien et un français. Les 50 élèves restant se sont bien mélangés entre les nationalités. Les chambres étaient un peu petites. Il n y avait que 4 français, ce qui a poussé à parler avec les autres nationalités Activités sympa, personnel sympa

C'était un magnifique séjour inoubliable, avec des membres du staff géniaux et la création de liens avec des jeunes d'autres horizons indénouables. Un cadre incroyable avec un campus gigantesque! On se rend pas compte quand on travaille c'est comme du jeu. Certaines activités n'étaient pas vraiment adaptées pour des adolescents de plus de 14 ans, mais la bienveillance du staff et leur gentillesse nous le font vite oublier.

« - Lage ist super, wunderschön- ständiges Programm war super »

Ces deux semaines à Ardingly College ont été géniales aux côtés d'autres jeunes de différentes nationalités ! J'ai adoré l'endroit et les excursions réalisées pendant le séjour ! Le staff était super et à l'écoute avec les autres étudiants... L'école était idéalement située avec de nombreux coins de verdure où l'on pouvait rester discuter entre jeunes pendant les temps de pause ! Les professeurs étaient à l'écoute des élèves, ils mélangeaient les nationalités pour les travaux de groupe ce qui obligeait tous les élèves à parler entre eux en anglais. Le logement, situé dans l'enceinte de l'école était très bien ! Une salle commune permet à tous les étudiants de s'y retrouver pour échanger autour d'une partie de baby-foot par exemple ! Diverses activités étaient proposées à l'école... Piscine, football, basketball, danse... Tout était parfait j'espère avoir la chance de revivre une expérience comme celle-ci !

Ich habe ein selbstbewussteres Kind zurück bekommen, der ohne Probleme mühelos dem Kellner erklärte was wir essen wollen, das wir zahlen wollen und es war auch kein Thema sich den Weg zum WC beschreiben zu lassen. Er kam mit einem Lächeln zu uns und er bestätigte es war schön. Die Betreuung für die Eltern war top. Egal welche Fragen wir fanden es wurden alle ehestbaldig beantwortet. Danke für dieses Service. Mit freundlichen GrüßenBokan Mein Sohn hat Freunde gefunden somit habe ich das Alter nicht erfragt. Mein Sohn hat positiv über die Unterrichtseinheiten erzählt und er ist hörsensibel also hat auch die Gruppenanzahl im Klassenzimmer gepasst.

De belles excursions à Brighton et Londres ! J'ai fait beaucoup de rencontres avec lesquelles je suis toujours en contact, on prévoit de s'y retrouver l'année prochaine Le professeur est très en contact avec ses étudiants et fait beaucoup de travail de groupe, jeux, quizz. C'est ludique Il y a beaucoup de choix pour le repas Les jeux peut etre pas assez adaptés pour les personnes de plus de 14 ans mais on peut toujours faire des propositions au staff pour y remédier Incroyable séjour j'espere y retourner

Toller Sprachaufenthalt, schönes Land und einzigartiges College. Hat mir sehr gefallen. Klassenräume sind in Ordnung, Infrastruktur der Schule passt, Bei den Nationalitäten gut gemischt. Gute Lehrer, Unterricht hat meistens Spass gemacht Waren zu viele Leute im Zimmer Fantasia(10 Betten), Verpflegung war gut und meistens auch abwechslungsreich, Bad war in Ordnung, Kontakt mit den anderen Studierenden hatte man eigentlich viel Abendprogramm hat immer sehr viel Spass gemacht, Tennis war nicht schlecht, man hat aber leider nicht so viel gelernt, da es von Anfänger bis zu sehr guten Spielern alles in einer Gruppe hatte. Die besseren Spieler wurden schlechter unterstützt. Das Team war immer verfügbar. Die Freizeitaktivitäten waren nicht sehr abwechslungsreich.

I hugely enjoyed my stay, the atmosphere was relaxed and the school staff was very friendly, so the conditions were perfect to practise English. The school reminds me of Harry Potter’s house! I think I improved my skills in English, and in tennis too, thanks to the option offered by the school.

Duration: 2 Weeks

The Ardingly School offers many possibilities, for example: tennis, water sports, dancing, etc. The activity hours are varied and fun! The English food on offer is different to Swiss food, but just as delicious! What’s more, there’s something different every day. The English teaching is playful. You learn a lot that way and there is no homework. You also have fun. During the excursions and shopping trips we always make new friends from different countries. In the games room / living room we play table football or table tennis with other kids. The room is clean and cosy, so we soon felt at home. Therefore, we can only recommend the college!
