studied English Academic preparation


I love this school. I like the way they teach, especially because the teachers are young and the teachers are easy to understand. The director she is so friendly and cares a lot about the students. I have gone to a couple other English schools before but I never liked it and I wasn't comfortable. But here it's very nice and welcoming.

If you are looking for a PROFESSIONAL English Learning Center this is the right place. Before I applied to GLOBAL ESL ACADEMY I went to few other English schools. Advertisement was all over the internet and on the street, but the level of education was horrible... So, I started to look again for an English language school that will give me knowledge and proper understanding of strategies on how to prepare for TOEFL. That was my goal!! I googled "TOEFL Preparation" and first ads was Global ESL Academy. Positive reviews and comments made me call and schedule and appointment. Friendly Executive Director of the facility Ms.Shira was very informative. I felt comfortable and didn't even wanted to look for another center. I got lucky to be in Ms. Shannon's class. She is an incredible person with a Great personality!!! I was able to pass my TOEFL Test without any difficulties. Warm environment, friendly staff, Excellent Educational Program!!! Will refer all of my friends and people who will be interesting in learning English as a Second Language ONLY to GLOBAL ESL ACADEMY!!! GREAT JOB DONE GUYS!!!
