Codrington Language Centre - the perfect place to combine holidays with English classes of good quality. Strict and well organized school. Familiar school and possibility to work in small groups. Not too far away from Europe or South America (so it's possible to stay for two weeks compared to Australia for example). Approaches individual needs.

I went to Barbados for 3 weeks. I wanted to improved my oral English. I had classes with a very good teacher, Sylvia J, at The Codrington Language Centre. Our classes were amazing and it felt as if what we learned in our classes in 3 weeks was like 1 whole year at school. So that was great for us. Thanks to Sylvia I improved my oral English in a beautiful island with amazing beaches. Sylvia is a very nice person. So I want to tell you to come to Barbados and to the centre.

I was very satisfied with organising, preparing and managing from your side. All lessons had logical structure and clear program.

As the most valuable, I found listening of dialogs and following interpretation by students in speaking form. It allows usage of English in reported speech that develops student's ability in daily speaking. Students have opportunity to listen records of their speaking with immediate corrections. Even that this approach is very tuff and difficult for students, it brings fast development of their speaking skills. 

I liked also very much your approach to teaching grammar. It is done based on homework with explanation sheets and respective exercises. Revision of homework during the lesson next day is a great chance for students to repeat needed grammar with the teacher. On top of that it provided to students personal sentence analyse and sheet with weekly recapitulation of grammar, new vocubulary, pronunciation, new expressions and phrases. Students have summary tests at the end of each week. 

I found above described system as very effective and more valuable in comparison with lessons which I had in Europe. 

Finally learning English at the Codrington Language Centre and visit of Barbados is ideal solution how to combine vacation with studying. Thank you, I hope that I will come back soon.
