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.
Everything was perfect during my stay at York Associates: the methodology and the content, which the trainers developed based on my personal needs and adjusted day by day. The atmosphere between the participants and the other trainers, especially during the breaks, was great. Whilst enjoying a good cup of coffee (or tea) we were able to discuss various topics with the open and humorous trainers. Furthermore, we were also able to join a trainer for lunch in one of the typical restaurants in the vicinity and get lots of information on York, its customs and traditions during the lunch breaks. A great thank you also to all the administrative staff who also supported me on a daily basis and my host family.
