- The horrible working conditions of teachers;
- The poor quality of their teaching;
- How much they value money and business sometimes more than people and their teaching.
But I thought: “This post is from 2006, things must have changed… and can you believe everything on the internet?” – Biggest mistake!!! I wish I had believed it!
“WE DON’T HAVE ANY SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY. THIS IS BUSINESS.”
I lost all my money and I thought the way they treated me was very disrespectful. I decided to protest: I stayed in front of the school and gave every student who entered a paper with the link of Cambridge website where they can complain about the school in case they have problems. The director and some employees went there to try to stop me. They tried to get my papers by force. In the end, they called the police to get me out of there. I explained the situation to the police officers and told them I was exercising my freedom of speech. They agreed and were friendly, but advised me not to stay there to avoid problems. The school staff said that if I entered there, they would call the police again, and then I would have a criminal record for trespassing. They turned my dream into a nightmare.
So if you plan on studying at some English school in London, you can find numerous options. Check what the school has to offer and look for references, maybe it is worth investing more. The cheapest could turn out to be the most expensive in the end.
THIS IS HOW THEY SHOW (apparently they removed the pictures from their website, but it is still possible to see on google images and google maps). Blured pictures or just one angle to mask the bad conditions of the school. Perhaps the sign at the front door is one of the few things that look nice.
