English will help me apply for better jobs and enable me to help my country grow. In my work, English is fundamental. It opens up professional doors, and it also gives me personal satisfaction.
AIS has international vision, academic excellence, a wide cultural mix and good facilities. It has excellent teachers, and provides a good learning environment.I attended the free extra listening and pronunciation classes, and went on trips where I practised English, met new people and had unforgettable experiences. I started at elementary level, but with effort and practice, I completed my studies at an advanced level.
I am very happy with my progress, and I thank AIS for their academic support.
