    I've attended Hospitality English Language 2 weeks ago and I find it really helpful. Ramin, our teacher, is very patient, kind and careful. Also the simulation helped me to be more confident with some little situations that can make the different between be a normal and an exceptional receptionist and was what I expected from the course. All the environment is serious and competent. Really Fantastic experience! Thank you Ramin, thank you Reception Academy!

    Maybe it seems too boring to read again among the reviews that "it was one of best decision in my life..." but the fact is that IT WAS REALLY ONE OF MY BEST DECISION IN MY LIFE SO FAR! I applied for two courses, Hotel Receptionist and Opera system and Hospitality English. I can tell that I am totally satisfied with the result. The education is hotel centralized, mainly of course about Front Office (theory, IT system, Practise). Additionally we got very useful information regarding the interviews and CV writing moreover got a great jobseeker service. During one month I learnt a lot and got new friends. I have already missed some of them. Ramin is my trainer in case both courses. Ramin is excellent in his profession, supportive and helpful mentor but everyone need to study a lot if want to become an exceptional Receptionist! See you soon on the Hotel Management course! So Guys..the choice and the decision are in your hand! Go for it! Liz

    I did also the Hospitality English course and I would like to express my satisfaction about my decision to take part in it. The structure of the course is very dense with a lot of activities and role plays. The book is detailed and very well documented. It covers all the departments of a Hotel with rich vocabulary, very useful dialogues and dozens of tips. Of course the biggest asset of the course is Nathalie. She gives all her precious experience and energy to the students on and on. I am sure that Hospitality English course at Reception Academy creates history!!
