Testimonial from Students:

‘I chose the British School because I’m living in Holland now with my husband and I need to learn English for my life here. My husband found this course on the internet. Also, the teacher is British and this is very good for me. I am very much enjoying the course because I’m learning a lot and I speak English with my partners all the day.’


‘I chose the British School because I liked a short course where I could improve my English fast. I’m enjoying the course a lot and I like the teacher as well. I will come back for the following course!’
