I chose this course to improve my English as I was studying a Masters degree in Business and Technology in Spain. The topics studied in the classroom have helped with everyday life as well as my degree. The tutors are very understanding. When I arrived, I could only speak a little bit of English and was too nervous to ask questions. Now I can confidently hold a conversation.
