“The course was very well organised and we learned quite a lot for our own English classes. We were asked before arrival to name our main fields of interest and topics we would like to discuss. Our teachers focused on these topics and the lessons were very individual and efficient. All in all we had a great week at Horner School and would recommend it to everyone!”
