    I could not be luckier with my host mother.
    She is the perfect host mother, she helps me with my homework, and shows me many places.
    It was like I was a part of her family. I know we have had a great relationship due to her kindness.

    I was already studying at ELA-Edinburgh before starting attended the Business English course. Then, as I was happy to study there, I decided to take this course in order to improve my knowledge in this area as it is my domain of studying in France.

    What I found the most useful was that we were in a little group of study. Then, I found that my time there was really efficient.

    My favorite teaching method was when I had to talk in front of everyone. It forced me to use the skills I got previously.

    I enjoyed to be fully immersed in a British culture. 

    The best advice I could give is not to be afraid to be criticized.

Thanks to Mark too, who was helpful and amusing. Theese two weeks were amazing and full of incredible experience. We fell in love with Edinburgh and its landscapes! Thank you from Italian students from "Venice". Goodbye, with love. We will miss you!!
