London is one of the greatest places for studying and I would recommend to every student to spend some time there even if it’s only for a while.

My time at BSC London was absolutely fabulous and I remember it with lots of love. I learned a lot with great professionals and met wonderful people from every corner of the world. I also did a lot of cultural activities.

I run successfully my own languages school in Valencia, Spain. Its called Centro de Estudios Europa. We have English, German and French courses. We work together with Cambridge English, the British Council, the French Institute and Goethe Institute. We are also an official exam centre for Trinity College London in Valencia. We also provide translation services for a wide variety of languages. And we are partners with BSC London and Oxford.
