Reviews from previous participants
“A very positive experience: improve your English, see Scotland and share the reality of British life, all in the same package! Amazing!”
Hortensia Herraiz, Senior Accountant, Sandoz Pharmaceuticals
“What I liked most about the English course in Hazelwood was that I noticed a marked improvement in the way I communicated ideas in English. There was a balanced combination of oral presentations, group discussions, video watching, grammar review, personal advice on pronunciation, ...and the challenge of dealing with daily life conversation. It was very easy to make good friends in such a cosy atmosphere. Ah! There are 2 things you cannot miss: the trip to Edinburgh and the marmalade at breakfast!!!"
