About Our ESOL Courses

I wanted to say again BIG THANK YOU for all you have done for us. I am happy I have passed all the exams. I look forward to start the IELTS course and hopefully will meet you then again.
You helped me a lot, maybe you don’t know how much. But this way of teaching was essential to my growth. You know how to humanize your work, with affection you teach your students, and that is your differential.
I’ve begun the Uni in Padova in October, an English course about food and wine. I’ve passed successfully all exams of the first semester and I have to say that thanks to school and the general experience up there I’ve reached an English level never thought!
I am so glad to hear that my writing skills have improved. It gives me motivation to continue studying English. Attending your class helped me a lot and I can’t thank you enough.
