“I have been studying at ETC about half a year. I have found my English has improved. I remember the first day, when I studied in Green Class, I had no idea what Dennis was talking about. at that time, I asked myself, “Have I got into the wrong class or is my English seriously bad?” Then after one week, I found my English had a little bit improved and I easily understood the topics in the class.”
