I took classes for 3 months to help me preparing First Certificate of Cambridge and it was a success. My teacher was realistic and very professional. He helped by fixing goals with me and taking the steps to achieve them. The best thing is that I enjoyed learning because I was having fun and the classes are so relaxed I got the most out of the lessons. I´ve had a great time; I passed the exam, and this has opened doors for me to work in the UK.
