"There are other English courses you can study at home, but if you have questions there is no-one to ask. Here, I can just email or phone my tutor." Jehad Mostafa, originally from Jordan
"It is different from the classroom where you feel the pressure to do the right things, you feel relaxed with your tutors, it is like you are speaking with friends and this way you become more confident with your speaking and you worry less about making mistakes. You can study at your own time and pace." Svitlana Oakley, originally from Ukraine
I have just received the test results. The band needed for me was 6.5, and they gave me 7.5 overall, with 8.0 for listening, 9.0 for reading, 6.5 for writing and 7.0 for speaking. Without your assistance I must surely have failed in this part of the exam. The communication with you gave me confidence and helped me to get rid of the worst mistakes I used to make. Now it is over, and with the IELTS certificate I have got the opportunities that I sought. Thank you very much!
"The tutors did an amazing job. I enjoyed the course so much. Thanks to my tutors." Imelda Aying, course graduate
"I can now speak better English and understand what people say in most situations." Beatriz's favourite parts of the course are information on writing CVs and learning about the New Zealand culture. "Being able to do the course at home was really helpful" as she has a young baby to look after. "Talking to the tutor over the phone was great for practising speaking and grammar." Beatriz Da Silva, originally from Brazil
"The best thing about the course was I could study at home which fitted in with looking after my family. I really enjoyed the pronunciation practice - it helped me to communicate more easily with Kiwis. I learnt a lot about NZ and the course really helped me improve my reading and writing." Kin Chee Mar, originally from China
