This was the best summer experience I've had. The program was very intimate, we had 10 students in our group. My English has improved tremendously. We visited New York City, Harvard University and played in fun basketball games.


Shanghai, China

I got very positive feedback from Ilia and his parents. Ilia really progressed in his English. He was also really involved in lessons and activities during the entire program. It is difficult to engage children in the educational process (especially on summer holidays) and the parents were happy to know that Ilia was interested in his lessons and activities. Moreover, Ilia liked the school’s location and the parents were glad to know that he is so close to nature and breathes fresh air. Thank you.


Daria, Education Abroad Manager, St. Petersburgh, Russia

I study English at school, but we don’t ever do presentations, so I got to practice my English but also learned how to do presentations.
