Reviews about this course

Sylviane Diguetfrom France
5 stars

What I liked the most about this course were the exchanges and interactions with the group. Being few in number, and from different countries, we had to communicate in English. The interactive whiteboard was also great. And our trainer was able to get to our level. It was great.

I enjoyed the contact with the teacher. She gave me the confidence to speak in English. I enjoyed trying to speak English in every situation and make grammar progress.
