"A very successful experience.The organisation was good and kind"

Elisabeth Farnbacher, student from Germany

Our teacher Lorian O'donnal is a encouraging woman and so we had a interesting discussion. Se have empathy an kindness. Mainly the age of the students was very good for me. The activities was nice, the location central. The room unfortunately cold and dark. The class was three persons. One of them from Japan. That was very interesting and intensive. Thanks for all.

"Great experience"

YU LI, student from Ireland

Great classes, very professional teachers and updated facilities.
But I sent my writing composition to the teacher, the reply from the teacher took more than a week, and my second email she never replied to and I don't know why.
Since I attended for only one class, so I only got a little experience from that. Hope this can help you.

"An experience to repeat"

Maria Teresa

My experience in this academy has been positive. The academy is at the center and is connected. The classes are right for the students attending. There are classes that require equipment, and all correctly functioned for the class. The teachers are highly qualified and they answer any questions you may have. Every day, there are some activities after class - some are free while some are not, but the student ID gives us a discount. My host family is a very cozy and friendly family. With both the academy and the family, any questions are answered and solved without the slightest problem. What I like most is the method of study!

"A unique experience to repeat"

laura

My experience in ACET has been very good. At school, there are many people from different countries, and it is a great opportunity to meet new cultures and learn. The teachers are very friendly and they are always willing to help and make your learning experience as fun as possible while you are in the academy. The location of the academy is good because it is next to the centre, and if you live far away you can come by bus or train as it is near ACET. The facilities are great. There are different classrooms, a library, study rooms, and a coffee shop. ACET offers different activities to do after school and excursions for the weekend. I live with a host family, and my host family is very friendly. They are very attentive to me. If I need something, the family is always ready to help me. It is an incredible experience that I recommend to everyone.
