Bell St. Albans Summer Language School reviews

Yvette P.

I have a bilingual family, so I have been studying foreign languages ​​(French and English) from the very childhood. Last year I went to the English camp Bell St. Albans School (actually, to learn English) and I can leave a response.

What I liked:

  • a lot of guys from all over the world, it is interesting to communicate with international students, listen to their stories. 
  • very nice and bright classes. Even if you did not get enough sleep - everything is so lively, so you quickly get into the working pace. 
  • many interesting excursions. It's organized perfectly: most often we were traveled by buses with cheerful guides. 
  • located near London - again, most of the trips were in London

What I would like to change (not that I would be unhappy, but there is much to strive for):

  • shared bathrooms: there are many girls, and in the mornings sometimes had to wait for 10 minutes (private bathrooms would be super)
  • my groupmates were younger than me: I was the only 16-year-old student, and the remaining 14-15 years. Again, it is uncritical, but it took time for a friendly grinding. On the other hand, the level of our English proficiency was equal, so it was not boring. 

The disadvantages, of course, are much less than the pros. I managed to travel to different countries, schools and camps, and a trip to Bell St. Albans School was definitely one of the best. If you do not need a strict program of preparation for the university, and you want to slightly tighten up English and have a good time - just recommend it.
