General English (GE)
This course helped me become more aware of my weaknesses and also gave me tools to strengthen them. I recommend this course to all foreigner students. Its teaching helped me understand how I could become a more effective in the English language. Working in a group environment helped me not only to learn, but also to enjoy my time. Teachers are great and incredibility nice!! Best course I've taken.
Thank you for the opportunity,
