    I like Cyprus so much because it is safe, people are friendly and I like the weather. There are not too many Spanish people here so I speak English with everyone at school, at the shops and in my homestay.   My Host is very kind and good company; she helps me to practice English at home.  I like meeting people from other countries, at the school there are students from Russia, Switzerland, Germany and Serbia.  This experience will help my career because I am studying International Business. It is really nice to study English here!

    I even could not imagine that these two weeks will be so amazing. The school, friendly students, the teaching staff, and individual approach to every student left a very positive impression. We had great social programme, trips around the island, and a special dinner at the director’s house. And of course, we also had time to enjoy the pleasant climate and clean sea of Cyprus. It was a very positive experience, and I made a lot of interesting and useful contacts. Thank YOU and hope to see you again!".

    Juana, Colombia

    I 100% recommend Cyprus and this school.  I have been here for 10 months, and I started as a beginner, and now I am Upper Intermediate level.  That means I absolutely improved my English because I had the best teachers and they helped me every moment.  I am so proud of this.  I decided to come to Cyprus because I needed to learn English for communication and University.  I made many friends in Cyprus, and they made me happy everyday.  The local food is delicious, and I like the weather and culture. It was a great experience.



    The school has given me a good opportunity to combine studying English and relaxing. The professional teachers help you to understand the subtlety in English grammar.
