St James's Park

I felt homesick when I first arrived in London but after one week at the BCA English School I made friends. The school is small and the teachers very friendly.

I improved my written and spoken English enormously. The teachers always encouraged me and praised my efforts. The trip to Cambridge and Stratford upon Avon with my classmates and other students was special.
