« Quizás no tanto como yo creía, pero en dos semanas no se puede hacer milagros.La verdad es que he disfrutado y he vuelto con muy buen sabor de boca, tanto por los compañeros y compañeras de la escuela (edificio mayores de 25), como el profesorado, la ciudad,...Tengo claro que si vuelvo a repetir esta experiencia será en el mismo sitio »

Seul petit bémol de mon voyage: la résidence. Bien que le personnel soit très disponible et ouvert, il n'est pas évident d'y rencontrer d'autres personnes. L'école est super, les infrastructures ne sont pas très modernes mais fonctionnent très bien. Le personnel est à l'écoute et très serviable (toujours prêt à répondre aux questions). Petite chambre mais dispose de tout ce qui est nécessaire. Grande cuisine. Peu aisé de rencontrer d'autres étudiants, mon "appartement" était rarement rempli et on ne sait jamais quand il y a quelqu'un qui emménage. Le "service de ménage" n'est pas annoncé contrairement à ce qui est indiqué dans les documents d'information.

La limpieza no era muy buena, y había puertas y obreros de por medio. El programa social es bastante mejorable.

English in Chester, Chester
Duration: 12 weeks

The people in Chester are really kind and friendly. I like the way they teach English and the different activities they organise. It's interesting because when I came here I didn't speak English well but step-by-step I started to become confident and spoke with everybody and now my English is better. I have also made some friends and I'm still in touch with them. I think English in Chester is a good school with great teachers!

English in Chester, Chester
Duration: 8 weeks

Chester is a beautiful town with lots of things to do and, at weekends, many excursions (I recommend the Lake District) to do during the day and many pubs to go out in the evening.
It was not easy at first; I felt homesick but the school and the host family helped me a lot to feel better! For instance, my host family showed me areas where I could take walks.
Chester must-dos: tour of the city walls and SHOPPING!
