🤩 Global Villager, Isabela, has some kind words to say about her experience with us at GV Victoria! 

🤗 We miss you!


"Global village quickly became my favorite place. Since the first day everyone was welcoming and kind. The teachers make the classes fun and they encourage us to work independently in order to improve every day. Having met many people of different nationalities not only helped me improve my English, it also allowed me to expand my horizons. It is one of the best experiences I have ever had."

Isabela Ruiz Perez, Colombia. -  GEP GV 8 Spring 2023
