Before I came to Bell, I couldn't speak English. After 5 months, I can use English and I'm improving every day. I've never experienced lessons like this, they are interactive and feature lots of fun activities.

Every teacher is very kind and helpful. They taught me that when I am confident in myself I can speak English very well. I met many friends who message me on Instagram in English, so it's good practice!
