English for Business and English Conversation Club Intermediate to Upper Intermediate
From May 2019:
My teacher for the advance(d) course was Cathie. She was very professional and friendly. I truly enjoyed to be a part of her English classes. There was actually a certain point where I felt that the advance(d) course was too intensive for me, but Cathie helped me to concentrate and then take my English to the next stage. Her type of teaching helps a lot to improve my English. She was given me a significant boost, allowing me to develop a more native English convers(at)ion as well as make much softer my “really Russian accent” I’m not shy any more to talk to people and demonstrate my English knowledge.
I have already referred a couple friends of mine to Selwyn College and Cathie’s classes.
Thank you very much Cathie I’m appreciate all of your help.
All the best and I will see you soon at the term 3
Warm regards, Natalia G
