Student Reviews

I have been looking for a school for training and getting a skin care facial license and learning English for a long time. I came to this school and it turned out that there is an English school here. As I found out later, many of my friends studied at this school both cosmetology and English. Really a great teacher here and I really like to learn English here. All my clients and neighbors say that I am good at communicating in English 😉 I got a license to work here too 😊
