studied General English

It was very nice school!

I had a good time in the language school. All of my teachers were so kind and helpful to me and there were extra free lessons, so I could study English more than I imaged. However there are a lot of student from Asian country so the student need to think about "how they can stay in Canterbury for growing up their self in such a situation".

recommend

I would like to share my successful experience at CCCU. I strongly recommend this school for those who would like to learn either of British English and academic English.
There are variety of classes and some of them using authentic materials were creative and just excellent. They also provide an IELTS course and I achieved the IELTS score for which I had been aiming. Above all, the instructors are very experienced, supportive and friendly. Precise advice and support are given each student and they also kindly mark extra writing whenever students do. One thing I enjoyed was to talk to those instructors outside the classroom sharing personal interests and cultural difference, which likely make you grow up as a person.

In addition to the good quality of their programme, the biggest advantage is that language course students are able to fully access to all the university facilities, such as the entire campus, award-wining library, student union, clubs and student accommodation. It is quite rare that these are provided for those who only take a non-degree course and it definitely helps international students immerse themselves in a new culture.
It has been two years since I completed a course at CCCU and I have still been in touch with the instructors and friends, which means how wonderful experience I had.

greeting to the best teachers

I have studied in many placese such as London, Bournmouth, and in my country (Libya). However, I do believe Canterbury Crist Church University is the best in terms of the teaching quality and the facilities and so on. CCCU was the right step I have taken toward my postgraduate course. I just want to take this opportunity to thank all of those who taught me in this institute. I really had good memory here. I love you all.

The helpful course

I was taking General English course at Lady Wootton's Green to prepare for Pre-sessional and undergraduate course. All the teachers were very kind and taught English properly. I learnt not only language, but also the British culture, news and so on. They were really helpful to get used to the life here and improve my English.
