Inga Fo.

My studies abroad began at the school Sotogrande International School where I studied the IB program. When I chose the school with my parents, of course, they first of all thought about England or the USA. But Smapse specialists offered us a bunch of other options (for which they are very grateful). Switzerland was too expensive, but Spain came up perfectly. A good school, reasonable price plus excellent climate and nice friendly Spaniards - what else is needed?

My preparation for foreign studies was fortunately quick and easy: I study in a grammar school that is focused on linguistics - I communicate in English completely freely, and I learn Spanish from the fifth grade, so I know it quite well. But the IB program for high school students is something like preparation for the university, intensive and challenging - that's why I had to work with the tutors (again thanks to Smapse, they prompted convenient options and good teachers). You definitely need to learn the language, but it will be much easier if there is already a strong base. 

The school is very beautiful, it is nice to be here and study: the territory is well-groomed, modern - to be honest, I somehow even waited for something less. It's nice that recreational areas, leisure infrastructure is always in a very good condition. You have a strong feeling that they care about you every minute. Very tasty food! We have a dining-board, and most dishes are Spanish. Portions are huge, but so delicious. Still I enjoy extracurricular program: students can go on excursions, or if you want relax in the garden or by the pool. Senior students in general are touched on a minimum: here they understand that our program is the most complex and saturated, so we have more freedom and opportunities for recreation.
