  • Words can't express how grateful I am for your treatment of me those months that I lived with you. You took me in as if I was a brother or son, you made me feel like I was right at home in a foreign land thousands of miles away from my own family and friends.


    You pushed me to try harder and be better every day and you never made me feel stupid for making mistakes. You helped me out with  any questions I had and always showed an interest in my upcoming tests and presentations I was preparing for.

    You stood with me when I was missing home, and frustrated living in a different language everyday and gave me life advice.


    You helped me to feel at home in my new city, giving me advice about places to eat, sights to see, and parks to visit. You accepted me in as a part of the school, even if it was for a quick time.


    You taught me so much,you were a major part of my study abroad experience and I can't thank you enough for everything that you did for me. I can only hope that I made an impact on you like you did on me.


    Big love


  • The school is located in a beautiful part of the country and provides good facilities in a secure setting. My students particularly liked the lessons and the teachers who helped them increase their confidence when communicating in English. The host families were friendly and welcoming. The office staff was helpful and supportive…. We can’t wait to be back next year!
