Our teachers are highly qualified and have over 20 years of combined local and international experience. Some of them are also qualified IELTS and Cambridge ESOL examiners for the British Council. In addition, to their teaching qualifications, they are trained tourist guides, so they can easily combine the perfect English holiday package for you.
