Student Testimonials

The English Language Centre was a great experience. There were many things that make me say that. At the beginning the welcome was wow, amazing as a foreigner in a new country. The manger and the teachers were friendly, lovely, and they have the sense of responsibility for teaching us. I had the opportunity to learn a lot of words every day at the school, and then after one month I realized that I picked up a lot of English words and expressions, which was incredible for me. These people aren’t just teaching you English they are teaching you how to be confident and strong when you speak a different language. Here I am now, I have the ability to speak English confidently, strongly, and comfortably. One more important thing to not forget, I had the chance to meet many students from different countries around the world and I’m still in touch with them. I had also learned about cultural diversity and different traditions in many countries through this unique experience. That was amazing, I’d really recommend The English Language Centre for anyone who wants to learn English.
