Client Story: 

Here’s what previous participants said about the course:

“A lot of parts I like – the real language audios, the vocabulary, the speakers from industry, student videos – all those parts helped me a lot. It helped me understand a lot more at my workplace.”

“The course helped me with vocabulary, with communication and to understand the conversation – with workplace culture.”

“This language is impossible to learn in other places … It’s a good help for people who work in construction to understand their environment.”
