studied General English

Thaaanks!!!

I studied English in primary and secondary school sixteen years ago and I always said that I'd like to improve my English in an English speaking country.
Finally, I decided to stay 12 weeks in Cork English Academy and I'm delighted with this experience! I've met a lot of nice people, enjoyed my life in Cork and the most important thing: my English has improved significantly! I feel grateful to the teachers and I'd absolutely recommend this challenge to everybody! I've learnt that it's never too late!

Thanks a million and see you soon!

Lluïsa.
