    This program is fantastic! I had been to London a few times before but thanks to this program I was able to really discover the history and culture of this great city. I feel so much more comfortable speaking English. I will come back next year, the teachers are really very, very good.

    My experience in London was the best thing that ever happened to me! I enjoyed every moment and learned a lot at Nacel. I was delighted to be able to talk to people of various nationalities and share with them on so many occasions. Those 3 weeks were filled with many emotions, adventures and it is something I will always remember. I hope to have the opportunity to study at Nacel again and even at another destination, as the attention and teachers were excellent from the moment I arrived until the last day! 100% recommended!

    In the beginning the feeling was a little bit of fear but with the passage of time I can say that it was easy the adaptation and especially the trip. During the whole trip I had a lot of communication facilities due to the help I received from Nacel London and the advice from Nacel Costa Rica. Another aspect that I must emphasize is the agility that was shown before all the different situations. I have to say that they have trained teachers and highly qualified staff to do their job, who constantly help you to improve your English rank and the way you learn it. The social activities have been very good and interactive, they help a lot to meet new people and to be able to practice the language. Another point, are the facilities that are in very good condition and a functional location for any student. 

    I just want to give my sincere thanks to Nacel London and Nacel CR for all the support they gave me and they were unconditional. They made my experience unique and unforgettable, they are an impeccable company 100% recommended and thank you for everything again.
