    Testimonials

    I have been really enjoying the studying in the ESL classes here and have learned a lot from them, especially in writing and speaking activities. The classes give us all kinds of grammar and sentence skills to improve our academic writing ability. They are always vivid and challenging. There are a lot of interesting discussions, speech, debating and presentations to improve our communicating skills. I am able to practice more and have made many times of my speech or presentation with much confidence, which I can’t imagine in the past. Moreover, our teachers are so amazing and always available to help us in English studying or other problems. In addition, studying here gives me a great chance to meet the people from different countries and learn different cultures. In fact, I have made many friends from different countries here. Because we should communicate always in English, I have improved my speaking greatly.
