This summer from 29 July to 9 August, I took the Basic English Course at Lexical Lab in London. It was the first experience for me and it was very interesting. Andrew encouraged us a lot, so I learned many new words, how to use verbs, adjectives and pronouns. Andrew gave us a lot of material for praticing and he was very clear in his expositions. The visit that we maked out of the classroom with Andrew in the afternoon were interesting, because they were usefull to create a good relationship among students. I suggest to everyone this experience. Thanks to Andrew and Hugh

I have improved my listening and speaking competences through communicative activities working in pairs and small groups. Besides that I have developed social and linguistic competences communicating with other participants and facing real life situations.
