    Testimonials

    I think the classes were really useful to improve my English skills. Indeed, the classes seemed to be well prepared by the teacher be­fore each class and we were able to learn a lot without losing time. The class atmosphere was nice and my classmates helped each other... These classes gave me the tools you need to be able to build anything you want. Now that I have those tools, I can move on and get into one of the programs at St. Lawrence College.
