      いい学校
      GVのある建物はダウンタウン内にあるので、買い物にも行きやすいし、バスも色々なナンバーのバスが走っているので、とても移動が便利です。
      また、学校内の雰囲気もとても明るく、なにかイベントがあるごとに学校での催しがあります。
      授業では、生徒が質問したら先生が生徒に理解できるまで教えてくれますし、もし授業中に理解できなくも休み時間に、きちんと説明してくれます。
      また、アクティビティも充実していて、クラス以外で友達を作りたかったらアクティビティに参加すると色々な子と友達になれます!
      そして、ホームステイでは、ホームステイコーディネータの方がいるので、もし「ホームステイ場所を移動したい。」となっても、ステイ先をちゃんと探してくれます。

      もし、滞在中なにか問題が起こった時「込み入った話があるのだが、そこまでの英語力がない!」という方でも、学校のスタッフに日本人の方がいるので、日本語で相談できます。

      ですが、学校の基本的なルールは英語オンリーなので、普段の日常会話は英語です。
