The trainer style was excellent. I found the listening and free discussions most useful activities. I would be interested in returning for further intensive training.
Jessica Summa

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.
