Student Reviews:
"If I could use one word to describe my Kaplan Experience it would be “awesome”. I’ve met the best friends ever and also enjoyed a good mix of activities with professional teachers.”
Alejandra, Venezuela (General English student)

“The best thing about the teaching method is that classes are taught in English and the lessons are very dynamic.

Everyday we practice all skills and there are not too many students in each class so we all get to participate. The interactive whiteboards allow teachers to use the Internet and help to improve our English with a more dynamic class.”
