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.
