I would definitely recommend Loxdale, the place is great and the teachers are the best imaginable! The lessons were varied and I improved my English from day one. Brighton is such a beautiful city with great shops, cafés and restaurants. I really miss walking down to the beach and just sitting there reading or studying. Brighton still feels like home to me.
