Student Testimonials

“I consider this course very useful for me due to comprehensive practice examples. I liked the approach and the style of teaching.” 

“The online course fully met my expectations and was helpful in understanding the exam and the principles of IELTS grading.” 

“The material [on the learning system] was convenient to use, everything was at your fingertips, the tasks were interesting and the explanations were clear and easy to understand."

"It is a class that is fun and educational while playing games. Practice speaking, reading and writing each week of study There is a test of knowledge in what is studied each day. It is very good. Hope that if you study again, you will continue to study with this way."

"At first I didn't understand what the teacher was saying, and when I was asked to speak something, I didn't know what to answer. However, I gradually got used to the lessons and became more confident. From the 3rd module, some students from China and Thailand joined and I was able to communicate with them. Compared to before, I think my English level has been improved."

"I honestly think that the online classes couldn’t be compared as being there in person, but in fact, KEA staff did a very well job moving the classes online, the experience was almost the same as being there in person."
