What our students say

  • “My name is Lina and I’m from Colombia. I used to study General English here at Explore English but I’ve started studying EAP because I want to study psychology in the future. EAP has been a good choice because I’ve learnt a lot of new things such as critical thinking, academic writing and how to do presentations. My teacher is so nice and funny and he has been helping me to perfect my pronunciation even though it’s not part of the EAP curriculum. The class is very challenging but it’s enjoyable and I feel that it will prepare me perfectly for university.”
