Spark like any good educational institution recruits students from all other the world as we seek and desire for our students to be an international bunch as we believe having this multi-national feeling is what adds to the learning experience and also cuts down on students converting too often into their L1 (native language). Also our students are from a variety of different backgrounds and vary in age range.
In 2011, we had a great year, we had students from Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, UK, as well as Pakistan, Brazil, S, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Our programmes have catered for all age groups and for all nationalities and backgrounds and this makes us very proud!
How many people will be on my course?
This depends on a range of factors, including the month of the course and whether there is any special course during that time period. Generally May-September tend to be busier than the rest of the year, although normally certain peeks can be expected during “holiday periods” like Easter for example. Our maximum class size will always be 8 students and in general we run things in a cozy, personal way giving each student our personal attention, meaning students can expect to be on a course with nice manageable numbers that will allow them to get the personal attention they deserve.
