Thanks to the great teaching methods and teachers in this college, I achieved a high level of English. ETC has offered me the opportunity to meet students of many nationalities and I have made many friends and have enjoyed spending my time with them, not to mention all the trips and events ETC has organized for us. It was an absolutely wonderful experience. I am really glad that I had the chance to study English at ETC. Thank you!
