We wanted our son enter the Oxford school (now he is already studying there), so we were looking for him not a simple summer English course. Smapse managers were polite and correct. Very attentive, listen to all our wishes and requirements, opportunities on the budget, offer many, many options and give recommendations. We were provided with photos of schools and feedback from foreign students. They also helped with the visa and the translation of documents - in a word, professionall, correct, pleasant and effective work with such specialists.
We have chosen a really successful course: it seems to be a summer school (studied at Kings Summer Oxford St. Josephs ), but the program is aimed specifically at preparing for entering English school, called "Academic English." We took 3 weeks, the middle variant. In addition to English lessons, there were other courses, like: competent notes, time management, writing essays, vocabulary, rules for presentations, rules for writing scientific papers. Believe me, even with a good level of language the child should be ready to study exactly in English. We are sure that it was largely thanks to this course that we entered the school from the first time. Thanks to Smapse!
