I improved my English in a welcoming and comfortable environment. The staff and teachers were very kind and I met many students from many countries. I was very impressed by the quality of the course, working on many different subjects such as Finance Human Resources and negotiations in a very interesting way. I can only recommend this course and this school. It is not only English courses but mainly a life experience.Romain
