“It was a very intimate atmosphere. Perfectly designed just for me and my level. Different to other classes. With Sarah, we would come up with suggestions of things to do. She had a cool style of teaching mixed different techniques. Overall it was perfect - the perfect design for my background and what I wanted to achieve.”

- Deborah, Switzerland

"When I arrived here, it was difficult for me, and for people to understand me. Before, people were saying ‘sorry, I don’t understand’. When I meet somebody now, it’s easier to speak with them. Being here and speaking English all the time has helped me with that.”

- Florentin, France

"Everything has improved. But the most thing is to speak without hesitation and that is thanks to some projects that we have to prepare and talk about it in the class.”

- Noga, Israel

"I have improved my listening, my pronunciation, and my confidence to face challenges."

- Takumi, Japan

"The teachers who teach the English courses were very friendly. We liked the attention they gave to us, and their patience. It was cool to learn English with them."

- Jade and Meryll, New Caledonia

"I've made good foundations to become more fluent throughout the next few months."

- Annika, Germany

"In Gold Coast the people are friendly. Taking the bus, people say hello."

- Tatiana, Chile

"I would say people are so friendly, they would just be interested in knowing you. Of course, we’re all a bit shy at the beginning, but soon you can feel a bit more fluent."

- Aurelié, Switzerland
