What our students say

Students come from all around the world to study at Select English language school.
Last year we had students from 58 different countries studying with us.


Haruka Homma, Japan

The Director has helped me to find the right class so that I can improve what I need the most: my speaking and listening. This is difficult for people from Japan so it is important for me to improve these skills.


Jung Hoon Shin, Republic of Korea

My classmates are very nice. Everyone is from a different country. There aren’t too many people in the group, which gives me more opportunities to speak and practise.


Greta Breddemann, Italy

I like Select English because it is really welcoming and the social staff and teachers are great. Heather took us out for dinner the other day which I really enjoyed.

It was student Marco’s leaving do last night so Marketing Manager Alex headed to The Eagle pub with the students to see him off!

Fun fact: The Eagle pub is where Cambridge University students Francis Crick and James Watson announced they had discovered ‘the secret of life’ after they had come up with their proposal for the structure of DNA.
