“Speaking program helped me to make new friendships in the time when I moved to the UK and didn't know anyone. It helped me a lot with building confidence when speaking. It's really important to have someone you can share with, someone who is in the same situation, dealing with the same problems, as a community we can help each other and share our experiences.”
Denisa from Czech
“I love how after finishing your 10-week speaking program at Cambridge English Language Society you can enter a second level with them by becoming part of the Professional Group, where you have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge by doing creative case studies (like debates, workshop organization, website redesign, etc.). It is a great and entertaining way to apply your knowledge practically.”
