I came to the UK to develop my English Level from conversational to fluent in order to achieve a better position in my work.

Before I can to the UK, I was indecisive because sometimes we are involved in our daily routine instead of taking challenges. Today I am grateful to have had the opportunity to study in the UK and The College has given me many new meaningful experiences. First of all the environment is totally suitable to improve my level of English. The College has created classes with students of many nationalities which is extremely interesting. Furthermore, my teacher is so committed to us, she always encourages me with my homework which is focused on my interest as a student but also on my main career as a Social Communicator.

I just want to say many thanks for giving me so much learning in terms of knowledge, and the splendid life experience. Living in Bournemouth is like living in paradise. The atmosphere is quiet, the beach is amazing and the remarkable thing is that people are always happy to help you. Why wouldn’t everyone enjoy this gorgeous place! Bournemouth is surrounded by many great villages and also near to London. I am totally confident that I can recommend to everyone this study destination. You won’t regret it, ever!
