Everything at York Associates was excellent, I would definitely recommend them. The most useful activities for me was a presentation review and group training with a French colleague.

York Associates is much more than "just a language school". A fantastic and inspiring experience in communicating with top experienced coaches (with work experience).

Be it for communication in business, intercultural or private. Absolutely recommendable for people who expect "more" than grammar.
