I have gained a lot from the weekend. My French has improved considerably; especially my listening skills.
BT, French student
An excellent class: learning about an ancient society from the clues they left us – thoroughly enthralling.
It was great that the tutor gave us the space to write and actually work on something and then get feedback on it. His offer to read prior work too really helped in getting the ball rolling. … I loved the staff at the reception, they were so kind and helpful. The catering staff were so courteous and helpfully wonderful. They went out of their way to make things even better. Wished hotels were like this. Wonderful staff.

Your courses have turned me – a desultory and lazy reader – into one more focussed. The excellent tutors and fellow students have opened up to me a world previously unimagined.

Quite the best thing I have ever done.
