"“As I plan to attend a UK university I selected Advanced Exam Skills. This really helped me prepare for the IELTS exam. I am thrilled with the results.”"
"”I came back because last year was so good and I wanted to repeat the experience. I took my IELTS exam yesterday and hope to have scored well. There was a really good mix of nationalities and I’ve made new friends from Italy and Turkey. I knew the English Student Hosts from last year. It was great to be with them again!”"
