At the restaurant his father pulled out the admissions packet for Langford, showing photographs of the campus, smiling students gathered around classroom tables, teachers standing in front of blackboards, caught midsentence by the camera's lens. Academically it was far superior to the school he'd been attending, his father told him, mentioning the percentage of Langford graduates who went on to Ivy League colleges.

Attention : My parents.
I am writing to tell you what happened this quarter. Above all, do not worry! It went very well. Langford is beautiful and there are many things that struck me in the campus.
Firstly, I want to talk about the atmosphere of the school that seems familiar. Indeed, from day one, I felt at home in my place. All students welcomed me warmly. So I could make myself countless friends all very nice
the next tournament.
If we have time to spare and if we don’t want to practice any activity, we can go into the center of the city which is only five minutes from the campus or we can also go to the park. They have lot of open space in Langford. In fact, Langford gives its students a lot of autonomy.

In sport, I continue swimming everyday at 7:00pm. Thanks to my results, my sport’s teacher promised me that he will integrate me into the academic

Dear Mum and Dad,
I hope everybody is fine and I hope your Business is still doing well. Langford is just amazing. I’m kind of happy in that place. The weather is so nice here in Massachusetts, and I assure you that I’m doing really well in my studies, even if the level is high in this school. You haven’t got a lot of time to learn really hard things, but I always manage to stick with the strongest ones. I will probably be able to go further in my studies and do what I
