Royal Russell Summer School Churchill House reviews

Polina Solodukhina

All hopes and expectations were justified, many thanks to the SMAPSE for organizing the trip and assistance in all matters. Everything was great!

The classes were non-standard, interesting. I've increased the level of English proficiency from A2 to B1, so the efficiency was confirmed. Very friendly, polite staff. I talked with the guys - many students have visited the school for several times. I would also like to visit it again to take a longer program.

I really liked the excursions - we managed to see all the iconic tourist places, walk around popular sights. Activities after classes are traditional for language school abroad.

Very varied and tasty menu (there are even options for vegetarians). We regularly conducted written polls - what do you like and dislike in the camp, what would you like to improve, what can be changed, etc. The administration goes to meet students notes and makes stuyding and living the school comfortable for every student.
