Student Testimonial

It was frustrating when the school was closed and we got through a restrictive lockdown, but I think that the governmental measures to stop the virus worked very well. Today, the pandemic is under control, with low contamination risk and I feel safe to walk on the streets, go to school and interact with my classmates.
Inside the school all of us are wearing masks, we have hand sanitizer available and the cleaner staff are disinfecting all places constantly. In the classroom, it couldn't be better. Every day we learn useful things to improve all different skills like writing, listening, reading and conversation. All teachers are always ready to help and clarify any question. I really feel the difference in my English week by week. Now, with borders open to all countries, I'm excited for the arrival of new students to be able exchange new cultural experiences and having fun together while learn English.
Come on, guys! We are waiting for you.
