Nice place, great teachers and helpful staff. I didn’t have idea how would it be like, and even though I thought my english was good, I ended up finding out about a lot of things I don’t think I would any earlier if not through this course. The school has a lot of programs everyday and the teachers always recommend us some nice places to check. Totally worth it.

Amazing school

I have felt my progress in English and simultaneously enjoyed London life.
I started this school since September(2017), at the moment, I could't speak English well. But now, I can communicate with many people because of skills which I learned here and definitely, I'm able to talk much fluent than before.
Teachers have much experience and they are skillful to teach English efficiently. And also you take a class focusing on writing, speaking and so on, whatever you want, if you ask teacher your desire.
The point I like the most about this school is they arrange many social programmes which I can enjoy. If you're over 18, you can join Pub Crawl. You can go to 3 pubs and enjoy English style pub and drinking many types of beer with your friends.
I recommend this school to the people who improve your English skill constantly with enjoying your stay in London.

The best experience!

I've had the best memories and experience in there,thanks to all the staff and my friends.Especially the staff were always so kind and helpful and I am so thankful for this reason.And Highgate...I think choosing Highgate was the best decision because during the rush hour we didn't have to deal with the large crowds.And if you'd like to go to central,Oxford St. is just 20 mins away.

I enjoyed every minute of my 3 months in London

The school is at a beautiful spot of London a little bit outside of the centre with the near buses- and the undergroundstation, however, you can reach the centre easily.
The school is not the biggest one. Still because of that there is a feeling of family and security. The teachers and the staff helped me and my friends as much as they could. Not just with problems in or around school but also with advices and their own experience to make your time in London as comfortable as possible.
I think I improved my English in this time quite a bit. The classes were interesting and fun. Every teacher has its different style to teach. The teacher changes for once every morning so I could study with all this variety of teaching styles. Beside the daily subjects like health, sport, work etc. I also got to know about the British culture.

I had also a very good time in my hostfamily. The gave my a possibility to see the daily life in a British family. Even more the helped out when I was in need and provided me with a nice room and good food (For me it was good but I know a lot of the people in my school didn’t like the English food.)
I absolutly like the fact that I got to know all this people from all over the world and were able to make new friends. For social programm, even if you don’t drink alcohol you have to take part in the pub crawl( if you are over 18). It is a very good opportunity to make a lot of friends. ; P
Thanks again for this wonderful time in St. Giles Highgate! I will definitly visite you again.
