An amazing time abroad

If you are looking for a place to go abroad and improve your English, I'm sure that The Liverpool School of English is the right choice. It is situated in the city centre and easily accessible by train or bus. The School organises several events including trips to different cities, pub crawls and even sport activities. So there is something for everyone. There is a big choice of classes for every type of students. The teachers at the school are very good and they vary a lot.
Furthermore, if someone wants to have more contact with native English speakers the school helps them to find the perfect host family. My host family is very hospitable and I really feel that I am at home.
For those that do not want to spend their whole time in the classroom, they just have to go out of the school and by foot they can visit two fascinating cathedrals, walk along the waterfront or visit the famous Beatles Story.
I strongly recommend this school for everyone that wants to learn and have a lot of fun at the same time.

The Liverpool School of English opinion

I think that the school is nice. The staff is so friendly. For example, the last week, they printed me my boarding pass to travel to Spain for a weekend. The lessons are useful, but i think that the teacher should be harder and give us more exercises.
