There was a whiff of skulduggery surrounding the real-estate deal, since the building managed to pass inspection even though everyone knew it wasn’t up to code.
“Some House Democrats … cast a poor light on the idea of continued backroom negotiations. Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), the No. 4 Democratic leader, said the move to extend a possible revote until as late as July 30 was ‘shady stuff’ and ‘underhanded’ and held the potential for procedural skulduggery.” – Paul Kane and Mike DiBonis, Washington Post, June 16, 2015
I’ve been studying English in ACET for 6 months. In my experience, having studied English in a couple of different schools so far, I would like to say ACET is the best language school. Teachers are all very friendly and such good listeners and all staff is super nice and supportive. They set up various cultural events such as finding eggs on Easter, playing card games with tea and putting on costumes on st.patrick’s day & Halloween. All extra activities are really fun and I think all these things make students feel like home. And I met many classmates who are very satisfied with their courses here and took another course again. So I highly recommend ACET as a perfect language school to study English in Cork, Ireland.
