Liverpool me sorprendió gratamente ya que sus ciudadanos son muy hospitalarios y generosos. Además, ofrece distintas actividades y alternativas de esparcimiento. La experiencia de haber sido alumna deLiverpool School of English fue fantástica. Su personal fue profesional y formal todo el tiempo. Las instalaciones facilitaron mi trabajo ya que eran variadas y estaban a mi disposición todo el tiempo. Si bien era la única alumna extranjera, logré un excelente vínculo con mis compañeros y profesores. Mi estancia lingüística fue placentera durante casi todo el mes. Gordon y Chris fueron excelentes anfitriones y logramos superar las diferencias culturales para generar una buena convivencia. Más allá del error a último momento, ¡muchas gracias ESL por mi estancia lingüística! Fue muy beneficiosa y gratificante.
