I went to the English language courses last year - in Smapse we chose the Bethany Summer Camp: it came up to us both in terms of cost, location, and programs. It was a little tedious to get from the London airport- but I was glad that I did not choose a school in Wales, there would have been half a day driving.
The school is so beautiful! Incredible nature! Do not believe that England is modest, gray and foggy: our school stood practically in a flourishing meadow, on green glades, huge ancient trees. And the nature fits all the buildings, the infrastructure of the school. In general, as we understood on excursions and trips, England has a real talent to combine human buildings and natural beauty. Buildings can be stuffed with technology, computers and vayfayem, but outside it will be such a representative mansion, very cozy and pretty in appearance.
The language course is good, useful. I was in the middle group - I confessed, I expected a little less, because I've been studying English for the second year. Sometimes it was difficult, but then talked to the guys from beginners - and I realized that this way (overcoming difficulties) I will learn the language much faster. Every lesson is a challenge. In general, I'm happy with the distribution - in a more advanced group it would be very hard. Special thanks to our teachers (Mary, who jokingly called herself Mary Shelley) and Derek, the group's curator! They became for us friends and second mother and daddy: always ready to help. They explained everything very clearly - if you brake somewhere, they'll blast everything in the most detailed manner, just put it in your mouth. In addition, you can get individual and group consultations - I did not understand something, I came and they explained comething again.
In general, I have only positive emotions, it was cool! I advise, who has the opportunity!
