Очень рада что нашла эту школу.

Очень очень очень приятный опыт. Прекрасные педагоги, дружеская атмосфера и, конечно же, новые знакомства! Перед первым занятием вам предложат пройти небольшой тест на ваше знание английского, таким образом вы начнёте занятия с того уровня, которым уже обладаете. Много разговорной практики, работы над произношением и встреч вне школы. Очень рекомендую!
