Studying isn’t all about work, a social life is very

important too.The schools arrange some activities

or can help you plan your own.

All the teachers are so patient and friendly. I enjoyed all lessons. I’ve played games, I’ve pushed myself, and teachers also helped me. In one word, teachers are “sympathetic”.  Cetin Karakaya – Turkey
