LSE CHANGED MY LIFE BY GIVING ME MORE SELF-CONFIDENCE IN SPEAKING ENGLISH

I spent three memorable months studying at the LSE. I had the opportunity to gain new experiences, broaden my horizons and improve my English. Furthermore, I benefited from the methods used for teaching English as a foreign language. I got the chance to learn in a safe environment, get out of my comfort zone, challenge myself, make mistakes and learn from them. To sum up, I can speak English fluently and confidently now. LSE changed my life by giving me more self-confidence in speaking English.

AS A RESULT OF THE CREATIVE, INTENSE AND FUN IELTS CLASSES I WAS ABLE TO GO TO THE UNIVERSITY OF LIVERPOOL AND STUDY MY DREAM COURSE

The learning environment is amazing; the cosy, friendly, atmosphere of being surrounded by lovely teachers and students. Whenever you need someone to talk to the teachers are approachable and always offer help. Never in my life have I seen students having such fun chats and laughs with their teachers. This is very helpful as it eases student's life away from home and helps them to get the most out of their experience here. It's a language school, but you don't just get a language certificate out of it, it's much, much more! As a result of the creative, intense and fun IELTS classes I was able to go to The University of Liverpool and study my dream course in Genetics and Cancer Studies. I am now in my final year and I am hoping after I graduate to continue my education further.

TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET TO KNOW NEW PEOPLE AND NEW CULTURES; YOU'LL BE AMAZED AT HOW WONDERFUL THIS WILL BE!

The school itself was fantastic and I've enjoyed every single moment there. I think what I've enjoyed the most was the social programmes. I'm quite shy and it takes me some time to start getting on with people. All the trips and events helped me to feel comfortable with the other students. I'd strongly advise the students to take the most of the experience at LSE. Also, take the opportunity to get to know new people and new cultures. You'll be amazed at how wonderful this will be. I'm sure people will love your customs too. I'm an English teacher where I live and the time I spent at LSE not only helped me to develop as both a student and a teacher but also to realise how brilliant the contact with many other cultures is! In addition, I got my second Cambridge certificate, which lifted me to another level regarding my profession. Whenever I'm teaching something, I try to remember how the teachers from LSE used to do it.

IT'S A PASSPORT TO MORE OPPORTUNITIES WORLDWIDE

Along with receiving lots of useful advice from the LSE teachers leading the course, I think that getting real teaching practice during the course- and the feedback which followed- was especially invaluable as it helped us to gain confidence and really notice our own progress as the course went on. The TESOL qualification set me up really well for professional teaching jobs; as a qualification it's a passport to more opportunities worldwide and as an experience it is excellent for gaining more confidence in the classroom. Within a month of finishing the course I got a two-month teaching post in Spain teaching adults and then I spent the summer teaching in LSE Summer School teaching teenagers. This month I have begun a year-long position teaching English in Bilbao and will be teaching students of all ages.
