Studying in ULC was an amazing experience. The classes were easy to understand, the environment, the vibe, was very friendly. The team here made us feel like friends, not just students. The activities around the city, discovering new cultures, were great!
The exercises in class helped me to notice my own errors and improve my English, whether it was writing, speaking or listening. Also, the after-class activities made me feel more comfortable with this new experience in a completely new country.
My experience in ULC was one of the best of my life. Learning English here is a great option because they are very creative in the way they teach. With the ULC team, you learn English not only in the classroom, but outside of it, too. Thank you, ULC!
