What Our Students Say

I am delighted to have got the theory test - I was able to deal with unexpected layout of the test on the computer in the test centre only because I came here first.
Since coming back my confidence has improved and I feel that I can express myself.  I can voice my opinions.
In Somalia women do not go to school, only men, so now I am very happy to go to school, I like ESOL very much.
