I find it very useful for my career as a lawyer dealing with company law and business contracts. I enrich my vocabulary and get an additional set of information focussed on business issues such as negotiating, dealing with communication breakdowns, structuring e-mails etc. The teachers adapt to the students’ interests.
It could be in Portuguese, but I preferred to challenge myself and write my testimonial in English. I had Intensive English and it was four lovely weeks in LAL School. It was really good for me to interact with teachers and other schoolmates. My host mother, Bev and her mom were the best people that I met in Cape Town. I really felt at home. I will miss our conversation. Bev was a really mother for me . I have to say thanks for that.
I thank all the staff of LAL School for my language stay in Cape Town. Teachers are very good and school facilities such as internet connection, activities and the food are satisfactory.
The English course is really good and I have the feeling that I am learning a lot here. The teachers are very lovely and give a lot of attention to the students so that I almost feel like I am in private lessons. I like Hunters Lodge because it’s a great opportunity to really get to know new friends from other cultures and to practise English outside the school.
The school is only 20 minutes from the centre of London and it is located in a quiet and typical English area. From the very first moment I arrived, I got along very well with my classmates and teachers. Lessons are structured in such a way as all students from different age and level can improve their communication skills very well.
The DELTA helped me to develop as a teacher, gain deeper knowledge and insight, and has broadened my horizons. The course was tough but well-organised and well worth it as it has given me much more of a profound understanding of what it means to be a teacher.
