What they say about us

I've got information about my English and I can improve it.

It helped me assess my capacities to communicate in English and identify areas for improvement

Instructions were very clear, the pace was just about right, the environment was conducive to take the exam, the instructor was very accommodating.

Gave me information which areas I can take from ISANS to further develop my English.

They explained me exactly what my options in further language learning.

It was helpful because it gave me all the options to me in NS
