"Great classmates and awesome teachers. The classes were quite dynamic and enjoyable. Besides the morning classes, I also had digital communication elective classes. I no longer translate in my head before I speak; English comes out very naturally!"

Kaede, Japan (Linguaskill Business)

"We did lots of interesting activities such as role play of business meetings, practicing of how to write an email to your manager of coworkers, etc. It was so much fun and I am sure it will be helpful in my career in the future."
