Student Testimonials

It's one of the best language schools I've ever been, good school, high standards, really friendly and professional staff. You can meet loads of people there, and have a lot of fun and on top of that you learn real much more. In Reading there are many things that I like: beautiful Thames River, worldwide food, live music everywhere and the people are incredibly friendly. I'm lucky because I've met special people in Reading and our school, people from different countries and locals. These people will be in my life forever, I'm sure.
