Nicolas from France – course: General English!

Why did you choose WELS?
Because I’m living close by. I’m working at a backpackers in the mornings in return for my accommodation. Because WELS offers part-time classes I can work in the morning and go to school in the afternoon. I saw the school on the website and when I came for a trial day I saw the classes were not too big.


Eva from Czech Republic-course: General English

Why did you choose WELS?
I was looking for 3 things: good qualities, a good price and if I like it. I first saw this school on the Internet. It had a good quality website, a good choice of study possibilities and good discount (for 6 months)
