  • I never imagined when we started that I would become fluent in English and that I could manage meetings and video conferences in English and follow English language films. It’s fantastic. Many thanks.
  • The Language House adapts the content of the courses to our needs on a weekly basis. One week we work on presentations, another week we work on language for meetings. We can use the English from these lessons immediately in our daily work with our clients.
