    Dear Mrs. Simpson,
    We want to thank you and all school staff for amazing work with kids! My 4,5 yo son really liked the school time and it was such a pleasure see how happy he is! It's wonderful that kids are really
    get along together and even willing to play with schoolmates after classes. Of course the most impressive thing is the knowledge he get - after few months in the school I can say he started to speak
    English from almost zero knowledge! He understands what people are telling him and able to reply, he can count in English and even asks me to play his bedtime cartoons in English now!
    The teachers are very professional and kind, all kids are following the rules and have a correct understanding of discipline and I really liked that my son is educated in that environment and
    Thank you very much!
    Best wishes!

    Thank you for the amazing job you've done with Arvid. In less than five months my son is able to communicate in English. Arvid enjoyed his time in CLC a lot. I would highly recommend the Callao
    Learning Centre for both long and short term studies.
    Best wishes,

    Dear Mrs Simpson,
    I actually do not know the exact date but we have decided to move to Germany therefore, I have decided that Kota's last day of school will be the last day of term..
    He was not able to go to school before and he was very poor in English however, going to the school made him more confident and so much better in English. We are very surprised and grateful.
    Thank you so much, if we are ever to come back to Tenerife, we will be sure you to contact the school for Kota again.
    Thank you again.

    Hi Mrs Simpson.
    You and your teachers did the very same for Dean. Since coming back to Ireland and going back to school he is coming on in leaps and bounds. He is actually a head of his class mates in English and
    maths. The 2 years he was in your school were very enjoyable for him and for us as parents.
    Same as the parent above if you need anything from me to share our wonderful experience with you and your school and teaching staff just let me know.

    Thanks for everything
    Sarah , Oliver and Dean xx

    Dearest Mrs.Simpson, I decided to write to you ...just to thank you and all the Callao Learning Centre for the amazing job you've done with Verena, she's now a confident-relaxed-english-speaking
    student and we really owe it all to you. The year that Verena spent in your school has been vital for her. She's now attending ST. George's Barcelona and the teacher says she's got an excellent level
    on practically all subjects (even math!!!)

    So dearest : THANK YOU. I read that you are still struggling with the school certifications and so. and I am very sorry to hear that...if only they knew what an amazing job you do there, they would
    have to make it easier for you.

    If there is any thing I can do in terms of sharing my experience there or other..please let me know. I hope you, Mr Simpson and ALL the staff there are fine. You all are in our hearts.

    God bless you

    My daughter attended the Callao Learning Centre while we were staying 8 weeks in Tenerife. I was amazed by how much she learned during those 8 weeks. The teaching was tailored to her skill-level. Her
    English vocabulary increased dramatically, she improved her reading and writing skills and her understanding of math. She also had a lot of fun learning some Spanish, having PI and doing crafts. We
    are extremely grateful to Mrs. Simpson her team for this wonderful opportunity!

    I am so happy that we let our son to this wonderful school. First day at school he didn't speak English, could't write, read. His counting abilities were weak. After 8 months he feels confident with
    English, reads, writes and counts with a big enthusiasm. We are thankful from the bottom of our hearts to Mrs.Simson and her team. We got everything we expected (the only expectation was - to enjoy
    time at school and develop social skills) and a huge bonus- his genuine interest for knowledge. Thank you!

    My daughter goes to Callao Learning Centre, and she has achieved more there in 4 months than she did in 7 years in the UK. The staff are supportive and the lessons daughter hasn't
    had a "Monday tummy ache" once and loves going to school.

    My 6 year old daughter goes to the local spanish school and I'm very happy with her progress. I also send her for after school english lessons at Callao Learning with Jean Simpson. It's one of the
    best things I've done for her, it's a fantastic school with very supportive teachers and the improvement iny daughter is immense.

    A really wonderful school!
    Ashley Oulton from Tenerife

    My son who is nearly 12 years old attended the Callao Learning Centre for nearly 2 years from September 2010 until April 2012. He has slight learning difficulties and was diagnosed with Dyslexia a
    few years ago and was struggling in the mainstream school system, and was falling further and further behind his peers. As a consequence his self confidence and self esteem were very badly affected.
    However, through Mrs Jean Simpson’s “individual learning programmes” and expert help he very quickly developed his self confidence and belief in himself, and he really flourished at the Callao
    Learning Centre. His reading and writing improved dramatically. However, the most important change was in his attitude to learning, his wanting to learn and explore. Jean Simpson is a wonderful
    teacher and she opened his eyes and his mind to learning. It was such a pleasure to watch him come home from school and pick up his favourite Encyclopedia and immerse himself in it. To see him
    reading the descriptions and craving knowledge was so very special. My son was very happy at Callao Learning Centre and I do not remember him ever saying that he did not want to go to school on any
    day that he was there. He loved all of his teachers and classmates, and I know he misses them all very much now that he has moved up to a secondary school. I would highly recommend the Callao
    Learning Centre not just for children that may be having difficulties with learning for whatever reason but also children that just need a more "Village School" warm and friendly type environment in
    which to learn in.
