Student Testimonial:
"I think the myClass is a great option as the class timing is flexible, this allows me to fit my classes according to my own spare time.

I enjoy the classes and hope that the teachers can allow more time for students to practice conversations with each other. I hope to have more opportunities to talk to others about the great content I have picked up during the lessons."
