In search of best boarding schools in the UK – we have found Stonar

In September, the representatives of PRODIREKT, together with a small selected group of other agents, were invited by Stonar, a leading UK boarding school, to be their guest for a couple of days and to visit their premises. Stonar laid on an exclusive coach to transport the group to the school. The guidance and care offered by schools’ representatives as soon as we boarded the bus in London signaled something very pleasantly different. Kasha, Rachel and Judy made sure that we didn’t miss anything…and that didn’t stop until we sadly parted company with them at the end of our familiarization trip. What follows is our testimonial to what we experienced and just a taste of what our students and their parents can expect to find at Stonar. READ MORE

That group, COMMUNICATION AND LANGUAGES, which you may find and join here, recently published a discussion subject, raised by Dejan Trpkovic, Managing Director of PRODIREKT and Founder of the Verbalists Language Network, dubbed “Importance of Student Testimonials.” So we decided to contact Dejan and speak to him in a little bit more detail about his views on the importance of student testimonials from the point of view of an established education consultant: READ MORE
