Khaled from Kuwait
“I love the staff at CSL. They are very friendly and are always willing to help out. They always have time for a chat. I made lots of friends from different countries. The teachers were very passionate and caring about what we needed to learn and they always came prepared. Swansea is a beautiful sea side town and the people here are lovely."
Timothée’s success story
Timothée needed to achieve an IELTS score of 5 in order to attend a hospitality college in Geneva, Switzerland. Timothée was nervous when he arrived at the school and was unsure about making friends with the other students.
We specifically placed Timothée in quite an active homestay to ensure that he would get the most from his stay in Swansea. On Timothée’s first day at the school, we could see that he was a worrier. Our staff at the school nurtured him and introduced him to other students. After two weeks, Timothée’s confidence was starting to show. After helping Timothée for two months and giving him extra homework as requested, Timothée was ready for his IELTS test. We received his results just before Christmas. It was wonderful to discover that Timothée has scored a 5.5 in his IELTS test and could therefore begin his specialist studies.
Maria from Spain
“I’ve been studying the FCE class for 5 months. I can say that attending the FCE class is really helpful for improving my English. It allows me to get my writing better, my listening and my speaking. Furthermore, every day I feel more confident speaking English and this is really good when you aren’t a native speaker. For all of these reasons, I think to come to this academy is the best way to achieve a good level of English."
