About Britannia

My name is Yuliya Saglik. I am from Ukraine, I live in Erbil, Iraq. I decided to take an English course at Cambridge college in Erbil. I started learning in pre-intermediate and now I am continuing in intermediate level. This course has helped me to refresh all knowledge that I have studied at school and learn plenty of new things. In addition, I feel that my speaking, listening and writing skills are greatly improving. Cambridge College uses very good text books and supplementary materials. The teachers offer interesting topics for discussions. Lessons are very interactive and informative. I’m planning to continue and finish all the levels here and I would recommend the course to my friends and other people. Yuliya Saglik, From Ukraine
My name is Shefin Firoz, I am from Kerala, India. I have a master’s degree in computer application. I took IELTS preparation course here at Cambridge college of English. I did this course because I applied for Canada as a skilled migrant. I found this course very helpful since it covers all the sections in details with examples. The model tests we did here also was very good. And the teacher’s participation is highly appreciated. I recommend this course for those who are applying for IELTS. Shefin Firoz, From India
