Inolvidable experiencia

Son tres años los que llevo dedicando mis vacaciones a mejorar mi inglés en Edimburgo. Sin duda la escuela es de lo mejor que me ha ocurrido en mi proceso de aprendizaje. Te enfocan a una conexión permanente con la maravillosa Edimburgo, te proporcionan un contexto de compañerismo y amistad en el que te ves "forzado" a usar el inglés y sobre todo, ponen a tu disposición una gran variedad de recursos, empezando por los mejores profesores, actividades culturales y alojamiento con familias o en residencias. En resumen, inmejorable opción.
