I’ve enjoyed very much my stay with Terrae Australis. They personalized the lessons to my level and goals. Although I was familiar with much of the grammars my teacher provided additional to make it easier to use. The service overall was first rate. From the airport pick up to the homestay and afternoon activities, everything went smoothly and was entertaining.
