Student Reviews:
•  "I realised how valuable it is for me to know the internationally important language of English. I already speak Russian, and of course, Georgian, but English is becoming more important.

When I studied English in school in Georgia, I learned the vocabulary, and I could read and write quite well, but I was not confident in my speaking...until I came to the BSN Language Centre. Now I can go back to Georgia and do a better job speaking English with the foreigners I meet. This was very good practice for me!"

•  "I chose the British School for their good reputation. This is my second course and I must agree!! There is space to make mistakes and the teachers are very good in knowing what your problem is and solving it."

•  "I chose the British School because I liked a short course where I could improve my English fast. I’m enjoying the course a lot and I like the teacher as well. I will come back for the following course!"
