I came to London because I wanted to improve my English and visit the city. I loved studying at Hampstead and meeting new people from different countries.
I think the teachers are excellent and the social programme gives me an occasion to make friends and speak English. I enjoy my school life, thank you!
I had the possibility to meet people from all over the world with different cultures.
The teachers and lessons in this school are good, diverse and interesting, and there are many different activities for all tastes. London is a great city to discover... it needs time and patience but it's worth it!
