    ¡Fue algo increíble!
    Puedo hablar de mi viaje a Inglaterra, ¡probablemente para siempre! ¡Me gustó todo! ¡Escuela de reyes, te amo!

    ¡Todos los maestros, el personal se hicieron amigos! ¡Obtienes un gran placer al comunicarte con extranjeros! Cada día era diferente, todo tipo de eventos, fiestas, excursiones! Vivíamos en familia, en el sentido más estricto de la palabra, los padres anfitriones fueron tan amables, atentos y abiertos que cuando nos despedimos, ¡nos echamos a llorar con ellos!

    Realmente disfruté mis 3 semanas en Kings

    Summer English School UKLC London King's College — summer school in the UK

    Realmente disfruté mis 3 semanas en Kings. Las lecciones fueron informativas e interesantes. Trabajamos en grupos, que desarrollaron tu inglés hablado e individualmente, que solo probaron tus conocimientos del idioma. Las actividades fueron emocionantes y fueron geniales y divertidas. Las comidas eran deliciosas y nutritivas.

    En cuanto a la familia con la que vivía (Alisha y Chris), ¡realmente me caían bien! Son amables, siempre ayudan en una situación difícil, y el primer domingo me llevaron a ver un castillo abandonado, en Christchurch (si no me equivoco), todas las semanas teníamos una noche de cine, toda la familia veía una película. ¡en inglés!

    ¡Fue un verano increíble!

    Summer English School UKLC London King's College — summer school in the UK

    Denmark Hill, London, UK

    ¡Fue un verano increíble! Había gente amable alrededor, ¡estudié en una excelente universidad! Mi inglés quiere lo mejor y, al llegar, tenía mucho miedo de que en algunas situaciones no pudiera explicarme y no pudiera entender. Pero todo el personal, todos los maestros e incluso los miembros de mi familia anfitriona me explicaron con palabras, con los dedos, con gestos, en general, ¡lo principal es que entiendo! La primera semana fui con un diccionario en el bolsillo, traté de comunicarme con la gente y lo más agradable que hice! Lo que más me llamó la atención fue que, literalmente, después de una semana y media, me sentía bastante cómodo hablando inglés. Para ser honesto, ¡no quería irme en absoluto! ¡Pero espero visitar este maravilloso país más de una vez! ¡Gracias a todos!

    The guys got an unforgettable experience

    I can't help but thank the Travelclass organization for a great trip to
    UKLC King's College, London. Both me and the guys got an unforgettable experience. Organizational issues were resolved with a plus. Transfer, accommodation, meals and some additional options, such as visiting the historical sights of London and the surrounding area before the opportunity to watch the fireworks, by the way, the students are now proudly showing these photos, and I did some as a keepsake.
