"My son Raffaele stayed three weeks in your school from 19th June to 10th July. It was not his first English camp, but it was the best one. He is really fond of everything he did and of the people he stayed with. Accommodation was nice and he loved the coordinator and the stories and the lyrics (the Irish ones) he told them. He loved surfing and the beautiful landscape of your country.  He loved even the English school. and all the people he met (coordinators, teachers, instructors, students). I would like to thank you so much because of the organization." Rafaelle Torelli, Italy 2018
