IELTS course

I studied in City college last year with the goal of get the score I needed in IELTS (7.0) to go to University. I had the best experience here, teachers were very helpful, professionals, and all the material and content of the course was absolutely what I needed to achieve the score. Also the support that the staff give to their students is the best I've experienced in all the English courses I've done ( I've studied English in Chile, Australia and England) I absolutely recommend this school and specially the international department.
