Students’ testimonials

For me, it was not only the English language but also the culture of Great Britain and much more. Although it was my first time studying such subjects as science, math and business in English, all the lessons were very clear and fun.

BCS staff and teachers were very supportive throughout the course. Especially the EAL teachers and boarding staff were very kind and always tried to understand my poor English in the first few months.
