Mir hat Manchester persönlich sehr gut gefallen, da ich viele neue Plätze und Menschen kennengelernt habe. Von Manchester selbst habe ih nicht sehr viel gesehen, was ich etwas schade fand. Eine Hopp-On-Hopp-Off Tour hätte ich sehr gerne gemacht!! Nette Lehrer Die Betreuer waren richtig nett. War ein tolles Erlebnis für meine Tochter mit Mädchen aus verschiedenen Ländern Fussball zu spielen und sich zu unterhalten - much FUN!!Thx for everything :-)

2 semaines de foot et d'anglais.... le rêve.Le séjour s'est déroulé de manière très sérieuse par des moniteurs compétents, la nourriture absolument délicieuse et la chambre privée sur le campus très spacieuse. Dommage, le temps ... 2 semaines de pluie.Je me suis fait des nombreux amis étrangers car seul un garçon parlait français.
