'The course has helped me to overcome the fear of communicating in English.' – Bec Hyun In 

'I learned English before in China, but only reading and writing, so when I started working in Singapore I found it difficult to communicate with my colleagues. I have been at the British Council for about 8 months now, and I feel much more confident and can communicate more effectively with my colleagues. I chose the British Council because my friend recommended it. The best thing about the classes is that the teachers use lots of different methods and techniques e.g. games to help us learn. I also really like the fact that I have classmates from lots of different countries, so I’m also learning a lot about other cultures. I would definitely recommend the British Council to my colleagues.' – Kelly Zhang

'The teachers are well-trained, professional and know how to teach Asian students. They know our problems. I have made big progress during my time here.' – Sun Hui, Frank

'I’ve been studying at the British Council for about two months. I studied at another school before, but my English didn’t improve as much as I wanted, so I decided to come to try the British Council. I really like the fact that my teachers encourage me to try new things and check that we all understand before moving on. I feel my grammar and writing have improved a lot since I joined, and now I’m not worried about making mistakes. I also really like attending the free myClub sessions as these allow me to review and practise what I’ve already learned. I would definitely recommend the British Council to friends; my English has improved more than I expected in just two months.' – Ayaka
