The tutors are all really friendly and they keep you interested and motivated. The teaching is excellent and it's a great college to attend. Once I've improved my English, I'd like to study Electrical Engineering.

The course is not too difficult and the tutors make it interesting. It helps you gain the language skills you need to make the most of opportunities available in England. My ambition is to study social care and then become a Social Worker.
