"Amazing people in friendly building with whom I loved to spend my time"

Valentína Sedileková, opiskelija _ maasta Slovakia

School was amazing. I immediately fell in love with my teachers and classmates, I felt very comfortable and safe in the whole building. Teachers were professionals in teaching English, and prepared for every lesson. They were friendly, patient, funny, talkative, open-minded. Monika as a headmistress was very nice and willing to solve any problem. I liked small classes, because they were personal and we could discuss and spend more time on particular issues. In class, we spoke a lot. I think classes fulfilled the expectations of a general English course and I feel they have helped a lot. Personally, I would like to have more academic writing and advanced classes, because of the small vastness of school I could have only evening ones 2 times per week which were very late. On the other hand, I enjoyed it!

My host family was something different. I felt unwelcome and the communication before my arrival was very unfriendly. The communication about my dietary restriction between LI, Connect and the host family somewhere failed and they didn't know anything about my strict diet caused by medical condition. For me, the family was very strict, unfriendly, harsh, they constantly gave me feeling that they didn't want me in their house and openly told me that they overpaid me because of my diet.

Especially the host mother was always nervous, rude and I was scared of her. I tried to spend most of my time outside of the house (which was, however, very nice), because I felt stressed and uncomfortable there. I appreciate that they tried to cook for me something different, but their behavior really hurt me. I was surprised that they are very close-minded in case of Brexit and other nationalities, when they have internationals in their house. I didn't know that they eat different meat and I don't mind, but there was a problem with storing my food in the fridge (chicken breasts, yogurts...)

- although I paid for breakfast and dinners during week and 3 meals per day during weekends, I ate only dinners (because they didn't cook lunches at all and I couldn't find anything for me for the breakfast which they accept that I have eaten

+ they said they overpaid me, so I tried to cut my requirements). And the last pearl was when they openly told me that they will call my country eastern-European event though I told them that Slovakia is in central Europe and I would appreciate if they accept it.

I'm not very big nationalist but this is so disrespectful. At the conclusion, I love my trip to Cardiff, school, teachers and classmates, I miss them already. However, since then, I was very, very stressed, sad and felt as a unwanted complication in this family's house.

"Very nice host family in a pretty city."

Benedikt Safer, opiskelija _ maasta Itävalta

I was the first guest of this host lady. She was really very nice and friendly and cooked very well. For me it was a pleasure to discuss political themes with her, to help her with her grandchildren and even to go shopping with her. I think I even improved my English more, than I did in Connect International English Academy.

The topics of the classes at Connect International English Academy were very interesting but the teachers unfortunately instructed disinterestedly and halfheartedly.

The city of Cardiff is full of young students, so I liked it.

Thank you for your feedback. It's very valuable and will help other students when they are looking for accommodation. Shame that you didn't mention anything about your dissatisfaction regarding the teaching while you were here. We wanted you to get the most out of your short 1 week stay and certainly would look into the complaint. All of the other students who attended the same course were very happy with the teachers and the quality of the lessons.
All the best.

"A great linguistic experience in Cardiff"

Arek Rafinski

I attended a six- week course in Connect International English Academy from June-July 2016.
Every one in the school was very friendly and helpful. The teachers were professional and well prepared for the classes.
My classmates were international students so we could practice English during our breaks.
I think I learned a lot and it was worth it. I would recommend Connect to everyone who wants to study English.

"It was a great experience, I've improved my English a lot, thanks to the academy and the teachers."

Melania Illescas Martínez

I chose this academy because my timetable was different each week and they gave me the opportunity to go to classes the days that fits my schedule.

The teachers love their job, and this is important because they made the classes interesting and funny, so you can learn while you are having fun.
The academy is located in the city center, close to bus stops, shops, etc..

The academy atmosphere is amazing. We were like a family, I met people form all over the world.

Viisumineuvonta

Me emme voi anoa viisumeja opiskelijoiden puolesta. Koulu voi kuitenkin tarjota viisumihakemukseen tarvittavat lomakkeet.

Jos opiskelet Britanniassa yli 11 kuukauden ajan saat CAS- viitenumeron (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies) joka sinun on ltoimitettava Britannian suurlähetystöön yhdessä viisumihakemuksesi (General Student Visa) kanssa. Opiskelijat, jotka ovat onnistuneesti varanneet ja maksaneet kielikurssin saavat CAS-numeron Connect. Ole hyvä ja ota huomioon, että Britannian lakien mukaan CAS-numero voi antaa vain opiskelijalle, joka aikoo opiskella englantia yli 11 kuukautta.

Jos opiskelet Britanniassa alle kuuden kuukauden ajan, sinun on anottava erityistä vierailuviisumia (Student Visitor Visa). Vierailevana opiskelijana sinulla ei ole oikeutta työskennellä opiskelun ohella. Jos suunnitelmissasi on opiskella Britanniassa alle kuuden kuukauden ajan, hyväksymiskirje lähetetään sinulle maksutta kotiosoitteeseesi. Jos haluat saada materiaalin pikakirjeenä, rekisteröityessäsi veloitetaan erityismaksu.

Lennot ja lentokenttävaihdot

Huomaa, että emme varaa opiskelijoille lentoja. Jos etsit lentojen hintatietoja, suosittelemme Kayak.com sivustoa, jossa voit valita selata lentovaihtoehtoja oman maasi ja kohde Cardiff välillä oman hintatasosi, aikataulusi ja mieltymyksiesi mukaan.

Matkavakuutus

Opiskele huoletta ulkomailla Language Internationalin tarjoamien sairaus- ja henkilökohtaisen omaisuusvakuutusten turvin. Kun varaat kielikurssin kauttamme, voit halutessasi ostaa kansainvälisen vakuutuspaketin joka kattaa sairauskulujen lisäksi omaisuusvahingot. Sinun on varattava palvelu etukäteen rekisteröitymisen ohessa.
