Hi! I am Fernando. I’m from Spain. I am doing a language course in the UK. I’ve already enjoyed the course. The coursebooks are helpful. There are lots of real life conversations, so it’s really useful to study English. Now, I can catch conversations better on the street. I’ve improved my speaking, reading ,writing and listening. I’ve learnt a lot of vocabulary and and I’ve practised my listening. The directors,teachers and reception staff are friendly and helpful. The teachers are very friendly. They listen to students carefully and patiently. They are qualified and experienced. They care about students’ progress seriously . The course director gives a lot of advice to students. There are small group lessons . I think small group lessons are the best way to learn and improve a language because students can speak as much as they want. The teachers can correct my mistakes and give advice to improve my pronounciation and grammar . The location of the school is great. It’s in the centre of the city. I think it is a beautiful and lively place.
