Excellent School

I have studied at Sámara Beach Language School twice for five weeks in total. I am going to return to the school next month to study for another week. I like the school a lot. There is a nice combination of pleasant atmosphere and professionalism. All of the teachers are very good or excellent. The community is very nice. There are many nice restaurants.

How can this program be improved?
Most students there do home stay. Most students who do home stay enjoy the experience. However home stay is not for everyone. My only complaint is that there are not many nice hotels near the school so choice in this is limited.
Yes, I recommend
