We try to imbue students with the idea that mistakes are nothing to be ashamed of, and are an essential part of the learning process. Therefore, students are encouraged to take part in discussions and to remember: Practice makes perfect!
Our English lessons are taught by dedicated and motivated teachers with plenty of enthusiasm for teaching English to teenagers.
