Study Experience

'My English skills are remarkably enhanced, especially my speaking and my writing skills. While taking the CELUSA course, I have the opportunity to learn how to write a proper essay for university in advanced, which is really important and useful in the future. Last but not least, CELUSA’s teachers and staff are very helpful and supportive and also my peers!'
