"It's good for beginners"

JungKun Ji

The class is really good for beginners.

The best advantage is that the students can study in a small group, so students can be taught intensively and work on their weaknesses.

The facilities and teachers are also really good.

I studied for a month, and I think that I became more confident in speaking English.

"I couldn't find another school better than this!"

Yoonhee Lee

The location was a little bit far, but other things made up for the location!

The teacher was really awesome. He had passion, a nice attitude, and good feedback. We were in a very small class so he always focused on me. He didn't pass judgement.

I could easily understand the class because his voice was very clean and he explained the grammar. If I couldn't understand, he tried to make me understand.

Even the directors also always cared about me. When I had a break time, they visited me for a chat. It was really good for me. They also had clean accents, so just simply talking was helpful.

I didn't want to graduate. If I have a chance, I want to come back to Anne's language house! :)
