Review of EducateFirst Ltd by Sanjay3000

Advantages: Low cost, friendly people, welcoming atmosphere.
Disadvantages: None that I can think of.

The kids had a very pleasant experience going to this learning centre. The lessons were very helpful and also at a very affordable price. My kids went to maths and English lessons but did not join the science lessons as I don't think they need it at this ... Read review

Helped my son improve at school
Review of EducateFirst Ltd by Mamamia2016

Advantages: Very affordable and the teachers are fabulous
Disadvantages: Lessons only last an hour and take place at certain times

Where are they based? Where do they travel to? You say they're cheap but there's no indication of price. Do they only tutor to SATS level? What subjects did they help your son with? by anonymili

Concept gets 5 stars, Website gets 1 star.
Review of Busuu.com by Ciaoshu

Advantages: Great concept, multiples of native speakers to review your work, reasonably priced
Disadvantages: Navigation horrible. Multiple website mistakes. Tech support don't think they have a problem.

This works very well, is a great concept for learning language, because you have available so many native speakers to help you. You can conduct live chats and have people communicate with you, to try out your skills. You can also help others correct their ... Read review

Indeed we could do with more. by JOHNV
For a review of this kind unfortunately this is a little too general and does not offer sufficient focus on the "product" - more accurately the service in this case - and how it works. The purpose of Ciao is not as a "feeder" for other sites, obviously we have the option of going there, but we do need to get all the basic information from a review. R. by RICHADA

You have 20 hours of classroom teaching per week and additionally 5 hours of one to one courses. The latter can be in the afternoon whenever is convenient for you. Regarding the prices I recommend looking on the AIL webpage! by mosibee

Advantages: Quick, friendly responses before arriving. Enthusiastic, passionate teachers and interesting lessons
Disadvantages: None!

Last summer, I studied at AIL Madrid for 12 weeks in their intensive course. I had a few years out before deciding to go to uni to do a Spanish degree. I'd barely spoken a word in the years in between so obviously I was a bit apprehensive about being good ... Read review

This was a waste of Money!
Review of American Intercultural Student Exchange by Student03

Advantages: The organization got me here, although I was switched to another family after arriving
Disadvantages: Do not seem to care about the students. Do not perform the job correctly.

AISE is understaffed, unhelpful and extremely expensive. There were several students in my area that were switched around like I was. I am not sure what the company did with my $10,000+ USD but it was not worth it! This company does not check all of it ... Read review
