By far what I like most about Kaplan, is the friendly environment! Everybody knows each person has their strengths and weakness, so we help each other all the time, and I love the fact that we can have fun and learn grammar at the same time.
The cultural exchange that we have at school is also something that I really appreciate, because I can learn something different every day.
I believe that my writing and reading skills are getting better day by day. As a future journalist this will help me to understand different (and even complex) texts and to write about different topics using a wide range of vocabulary. Although I don’t think I am 100% confident with my speaking skills, I know that I am on the right track. Thanks to Kaplan and especially my teacher Sam who encourages us to discuss interesting and trending topics around the world.
