  • “I’m Alejandra Alvarez, part time worker. Learning a new language was always one of my biggest challenges, and finding the right place was also very important. When I joined the course, the purpose was to get ready for my PTE Pearson, I was really nervous for my test but excited at the same time to get to know the Institute, meet everyone and start my studies. My experience has been great, the classes were excellent, I felt great, the connection with the teacher was good, the best environment and helpful. I have new knowledge and my English has improved, also I’m glad to say that my exam results were excellent.”

  • "My name is Sheila Nascimento, I decided to do the PTE course to help me to get the score that I needed. The school was really helpful for this. The teacher was prepared and helped me with all that I needed, we did practical exams and the material was all based on the test. She also gave me some tips for the test. I decided to do my course at Explore English after visiting the school and talking to the teacher because I was made to feel really comfortable. The campus is new and the location is great. I would recommend to my friends who are looking to do a PTE test to choose this school. The classrooms are great, the teachers are so good and there is a great community there."
