“Doing this course isn’t as scary as I thought it was going to be. It was quite daunting at first but when I started it was quite fun to learn again and there is always room for improvement.

The teachers are amazing. They are always there to support you and guide you if you have any problems. They will follow up with an email with resources that helped me a lot.”

“I love this college because I am learning all these new words and speaking with our group has helped me to start speaking fluently and correctly.

I like being in my group as they’re all so friendly. We are all from different nationalities and I have learnt about their different cultures. ”

I have learnt so much from the teacher and being around the other students has helped me improve my speaking and become more confident.”
