Student Story

Luis Fernando Sterza - IELTS Course

'The location of Islington Centre for English in Angel was the first thing that has attracted me, for the reason that the area is full of life, with bars, theatres, shopping centres, book shops, etc. At the school, I fell treated as an individual, not a number, where teachers and staff listen to us. There is a very supportive team, which has created a nice atmosphere to learn, where students make friends and have a great time together.

I found at ICE everything that I was looking for, as a library, computer room, special events to socialise, extra supporting classes and the most important for me, qualified English teachers.'
