What our students say
I have big news for my greatest teacher, Anne - I got 6.5! I owe this score entirely to your teaching and encouragement. You have repeatedly taught us the importance of studying 'little and often'. Now I have a habit of opening TED talk, OAED and AUSnetwork regularly. Thank you very much!!!
I had a wonderful time at the school and I'm so sad to be leaving London. I improved my English, became more confident and made many friends! My teacher, Zuzana, is a diamond - all the staff are very friendly and helpful, they were like a second family to me. For me, the best school in London.
The environment is very nice, familiar and cosy. And what can I say about my teacher, she is devoted to her students and committed to make them improve. You gave me the confidence to get a 7,5 in the IELTS exam (a much higher mark than the one I needed!!)
I indicate Ingla School for the seriousness and competence of all the time. I studied for 4 weeks a short time, but the experience that I had will stay with me for all my life. Thanks ... I miss you
I joined the IELTS course. Obviously, the school generally is the best for me. My teacher is really brilliant, amazing person. I am so glad to meet her and my friends. This course helped me to improve my listening skills of course thanks to Jo. Thanks for helping Jo.
I spent 4 months here. The teachers are excellent. They improved my English a lot.
I went there to prepare for IELTS and I joined IELTS class. My teacher was amazing. It was good choice for me.
I can totally recommend, specially IELTS course. Great teacher, fantastic group and lots of interesting ways to improve language skills.
