Ecole de Tersac private boarding school Tersac reviews

Oleg and Mirra A.

My wife and I are sure that education abroad is not only a great opportunity, but also a great responsibility, this should serve as a reward. Therefore, when our daughter showed good results at the end of the next academic year, they decided to give her a ticket to a foreign language camp.

We immediately wanted to go to France: the French Lara had already begun to study, plus she was very interested in the so-called fine arts - and we decided that she would be the most comfortable in the French school. Many thanks to Smapse for the correct and attentive choice of the school: they really listened to all our wishes and requests, offered several variants in different price categories and in different cities, several variants of the programs.

We were very pleased with the choice of the school for our daughter - stopped at Ecole de Tersac in beautiful Bordeaux. Even at the stage of selection, we decided that the best place would be a non-seasonal camp, namely a full board with summer courses: both discipline and equipment are better, teachers are more professional. If the school successfully works year-round, then about the level of service is not to be doubted. Plus, judging by the reviews, photos and ratings (again helped Smapse, and they themselves looked on the Internet), Ecole de Tersac is considered one of the best in France. Very nice campus, rooms for girls - just a first class hotel, and what kinds! Daughters really liked - we think now to send to study for the main course, but for this, of course, you first need to properly pull up the French.
