I had a wonderful time in london. even though I did not choose the best moment of the year as there was a bank holiday when I arrived. travelling was fast and easy. I had to ask for the way to my host family's house, but people are very friendly and helpful. once there, I liked my room; it had all I would have asked for. 'my' family gave me a warm welcome. they were nice, friendly and I felt at home. my landlady is a marvelous cook, so I have nothing to complain.
the school is well equiped, and the teachers extremely skilled. i was the oldest there by far (i knew that before, but i wanted to be in a proficiency class), i got along well with my fellow students the age of my children! i tried to make the most of it, but the time given was short!
My host mother was very kind and interested in my well-being. I could tell her all my worries and concerns and I appreciate her kindness. My class was alright. It was a bit boring sometimes but that is due to the level where you mostly just have to learn vocabulary and read complex articles. The location of the school and the location of my homestay where perfect. I didn't really participate in any activities, so I can't tell you anything about that.
The lady from Language International was very kind, eplained all the things to me and found a perfect family.
I can't complain at all. I would always do it again :)
I have to say I liked my time at Kaplan, although on the first day the introduction for rookies was far too long for my taste. The teachers with whom had lessons were very competent knew what the were doing. The atmosphere in class was very good and I liked my classmates. I would advise a bit more of pronounciation classes. But besides that everything was alright. Also the classrooms themselves were nice.Show details » Read more...
Homestays are carefully selected and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying English in London. These homes are often between 30 - 60 minutes away from the school by public transport. Families usually offer affordable meal plans that allow you to sample the local cuisine. If you have special requests or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance. Your housing starts on the Sunday before your first day of class and ends on the Saturday after your last day of class, unless otherwise noted. Learn more about homestay housing

We do not have availability in Nido Kings cross for the requested period. However, we do have a new residence in Kings Cross; Urbanest, which is available. I have received special permission for us to accept your client in our Covent Garden school, given that we are not offering beginners at Russell Square. Please note that the school is officially full for that period though, so I have actually had to provisionally book your client in to ensure that he has a space.
