I think my English is so much better now, than when I started 3 months ago.

I love most the sea- it's so amazing. The town is good, it has everything you need. Everything is close.
What do you like about the school and your teachers?
I like the friendly atmosphere of the school. What I like most about my teacher is that she explains everything very well and she says all the people have to speak in English, so we have to practice.
Why would you recommend Kaplan to your friends back home?
I would say come to Kaplan in Torquay because I feel very good here and I learn a lot and have a nice time. I met a lot of people from different countries.
How do you think studying English with Kaplan will help your future?
It helps me to work in another country and for travel. For now, I will work as a nanny when I go back to Switzerland.
