Comments from our learners

“English for Women classes is very helpful for me because my confidence skills and conversation skills are improving so I am very happy.  My daughter is very shy so she sits with me but she is speaking English at home.”

“This class is very helpful for my speaking and listening.  Thank you for everything.”
