The teachers were kind, patient and willing to help anytime. I really liked that when a student asked some question but the teacher didn’t know the answer right away, he searched on the internet or asked other teachers, so he was able to help the student after all. I especially liked the teachers motivation to find differences and similarities between English and other languages the students were able to speak.
The school is located in the centre of Norwich, which is very useful because all kinds of stores, restaurants and the most popular sights are within walking distance.
Classes were welcoming and always clean. The common room was a very nice place to meet people from different countries, no matter the age.
I’m quite happy about my improvements. I know that in the short time that I’ve had (13 weeks), it is pretty difficult to speak fluently without errors of grammar and to listen as well. Flying Classrooms has a great team of professionals and I have nothing to complain about them. Clever strategies of teaching really helps when you are sharing the class with students of different cultures and ages. The building is well-located and easy to find. We also had a “social activity staff”, who every Friday gave us options of entertainment on weekends like going to pubs, parks and shopping, for example.
I was only in the school for two weeks but I felt like I was at home.
Well, my first time in Norwich and in Flying Classrooms was rather scary because I had no idea how to deal with English people and I had huge language barrier as well. But all the teachers in FC helped me with it, and now I feel absolutely confident about my English skills. I have been to the school 4 times and each time is a new experience in English culture, language and people. All the teachers are absolutely helpful, friendly, funny and sometimes strict. Therefore, office management is also helpful, if someone needs help, he/she just needs to visit student officer and he will help with all one’s problems. I wish that soon I can come back to school not to study but to meet my friends (who are already best friends) to share with them my achievements which this school helped me with.
All the teachers were professional and helpful, so was the school staff. Everybody was extremely kind and friendly.
The activities were very interesting and involving. The school premises were fine too. The lessons were engaging, interesting and challenging. all the teachers gave us tips and hands-on suggestions to improve our work in our country. I have already planned to go back to Norwich for another course next year, a more tailor-made course only for TEYL (Teaching English to Young Learners) that the school is ready to personalize if we have some other teachers interested in the same area of teaching.
After three weeks at Flying Classrooms, I can honestly say that the teaching staff and the office crew really make you feel welcome. Teachers are enthusiastic, you learn a lot in a quaint environment and you’ll never want to stop this learning experience with all the other interesting students from all over the world. Top notch!
I’ve been studying at the Flying Classrooms for eight months and I’m very satisfied with the choice I made. The teachers are natives and experienced, the office staff are always ready to help and the build is adequate and well located. Every week they offer a social active, that helps with cohesion between students and introduces Norwich’s culture.
I’ve been in Flying Classrooms twice and really enjoyed that time. Recommend this school to everyone who want to know English well. Moreover, I was inspired by great teachers, absolute educational program and so friendly atmosphere there. Also you have to join the activities which Flying Classrooms organize. With love and million thankful words from Kazakhstan!
Our homestay is a very nice person. Her house is clean, breakfast and dinner are excellent and we can have very interesting discussions with her.
The school was perfect with really nice staff and wonderful trips.
I spent two incredible weeks in this school, you feel immediately very comfortable in the class thanks to the small group. The teachers are irreproachable, it allowed me to meet people of different nationalities!
I highly recommend this school which made me progress in English!
I know that I am very lucky that I chose Flying Classrooms to improve my language skills. All of my teachers were really good. I will never forget them.
I spent 1 month before my IELTS test with my teachers, Jill and Andy. It was really helpful and I got 6.5 in writing where it was 5.5 last test. I practiced a lot on reading on myself and they helped a lot with their advices and I got 7 in reading. I really liked this school and strongly recommend it.
I was only there for two weeks, but I learn a lot of English, and your teachers are very good. I hope to return to Norwich.
