"Absolut die beste Sprachschule, die ich je besucht habe!

Ich habe einen Intensivkurs besucht, der sicherlich sehr anspruchsvoll war, aber die Methode bei Bellingua schafft es, einen konzentriert zu halten. Meine Lehrerin war grossartig, weil ich immer aktiv in den Unterricht eingebunden wurde. Langeweile – Das Wort gibt es dort nicht."
