Cardiff est une grande ville, qui mérite d'être visitée. Il y a beaucoup à faire et à voir, notamment dans les alentours. Professeur compétent, personnel de l'école très amical et accueillant. Le seul point négatif pour moi est qu'il n'y avait pas assez d'excursions organisées le week-end (je n'ai pu en faire aucune en 2 semaines), après peut-être que c'est lié au fait que ce n'était pas la haute saison?Famille accueillante, mais les repas n'étaient pas partagés... Famille accueillante située dans une jolie ville en bord de mer, Penarth. Les repas étaient pris à part, chacun mangeait quand il voulait, donc peu de contact le soir avec la famille. pour moi, c'est le seul point négatif. Lessive faite régulièrement. Personnel amical et accueillant. Cependant, il faudrait planifier plus d'excursions et sorties

Most host families live about 20-45 minutes from the language school by public transport.

Any student under 18 years of age must book a return airport transfer and full-board homestay accommodation.
