We recommend you with only the language schools that will satisfy your learning and travel needs. This guarantees the quality of your language learning and experience.
When you’re finding for the best language school, consider its size (large or small), location (in the suburbs, in the city center), and student composition. The size of the school is an important factor when deciding which language school to choose. In general, large ones have better equipped libraries, multimedia language-labs, and better structured timetables. They also have more variety of course levels and larger number of various types of courses tailor-made for special groups. You will also get to interact with more students.
On the other hand, smaller language schools generally provide a comfortable personal learning environment. Usually smaller schools have lesser number of students per group. There is also a greater possibility of the language school to consider your personal wishes. In addition, your contact with other learners is less superficial.
School location is also a crucial factor when choosing where to learn the language of your choice. A school in the city center is your surest bet if you are the metropolitan type. Choose an institution close to restaurants, bars, shops, cultural events, and many leisure-time activities. But if you prefer a less frenzied learning environment, choose a school located in the suburbs. It guarantees a much safer atmosphere and shorter distance between your accommodation and your school, not to mention silence and relaxation.
If possible, you should, choose a language school where students from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and nationalities go. Some of the best language schools have a very diverse student composition. This increases your chance to interact and communicate with other students using the language you are trying to learn rather than your native language.
Student mixture largely depends upon the country where the course is being offered. For example Japanese students are now booking courses more frequently in Australia than in Great Britain. Student origin also depends on the marketing efforts of the school in specific countries.
