Dragonball Warriors and Battlesheep, yes, not ship but sheep indeed are the names my students – from Rome - chose for their groups, getting them ready to start a semantic battle in the class...

I had a very good experience studying at LAL London, the school has friendly staff and flexible learning. My teachers were good and I feel more confident to speak and write in English; I can now write work emails without using a translator!
Before I start talk about the English language courses, I should let you know a bit about myself. I am 27 years old and I had my last english lesson maybe nine years ago. In my business life I needn't to speak English every day. So I started in the b1 level (intermediate), after three weeks I was in the b2 level (upper intermediate) and I closed in the c1 level (advanced).
I think that was a good job. I did my homework everyday and studied English very hard. Because of this I had only good results in the tests on Friday. But that was not only my credit, it was also thanks to the friendly and professional teachers at LAL London school. Not only the teachers but also the school staff has helped me every time when had questions and they were there for me in every situation when I needed support.
LAL London is located in Twickenham, nice area with many things you can find, like supermarket, shopping, train station to central London. LAL London offers free internet access and daily trips. My English have improved a lot since I joined LAL school. They have friendly staff and they helped me a lot and they also provide excellent teachers. I met a lot of people over the world and I learnt about many cultures and families. I advise people who are interested in learning English to join LAL school.
I came to London in January with a friend and we are having an amazing time. I have met people from all around the world and I have opened my mind in a way that you can't imagine.
I also love LAL London, where I have improved my English a lot. The staff and teachers are really friendly and competent, when you have a question or problem, there is always somebody to help you.
The town of Twickenham is really welcoming and safe. There are a lot of shops near to the school, where you can buy a cooked meal if you don't like cooking. On the other hand, if you like cooking, you will find a wide choice of vegetable and meat in these shops. You can also enjoy some really nice pubs.
When I started I could hardly understand English so I was feeling a little bit confused and anxious. Now I can definitely feel improvement when studying in the classroom or having a conversation with my friend and the host family. When I speak to my teachers, they always understand me (even with my intermediate level of English) so I really appreciate it and I love them so much!
Well, What can i say about LAL London ?! :) It was my second time there and it was definitely amazing :) Teachers gave us the lessons which included learning new expressions, letting us discuss a subject so that we have a better understanding of it, and bringing some original material to the class. And a huge thanks to David Morrow :)) I have learned really a lot of medical terms and every time was surprised because every new lesson was better than the last one. His positive way of teaching gave me a lot in understanding idioms :) RECEPTION!!!! WOW!!!! AMAZING PEOPLE!!! Have never met so kindhearted,polite ,and open-minded people like Paula, Demelza and Ben ! They always are ready to help, always in a good mood, very friendly, just no words !!! :))) Paula, like a sun that gives her warmth to every student, very trustful, helpful person! She is unique :)) Demelza, she is so nice, gentle and positive! Ben is the best guide in the world!!! EVERY TIME it was so INTERESTING to go out with school when he was a guide, very smart and has an extremely pleasant nature. Also reliable and cheerful :) I have never been interested in history much, but the way he was telling about historic places made me feel really interested in it :) And every time when i had some problems with maps, tubes and things like that, he was always willing to help. And I Love London)) Its one of the world's most fascinating cities. There are so many possibilities to do and so many places to go to :) Every day is full of new emotions :) So , gonna come back soon !!! :))) Thank you LAL for a good time !!! :)) It was unforgettable ! :))
