"I had business English lessons with Brett. I learned a lot from his very flexible and practical lessons according to my needs. Also Brett and his family are very kind & friendly so I was able to have a lot of conversations with them outside of lessons, which helped me get more confidence in English speaking. Highly recommend. thank you!!!" Chia, Japan.

"It was a very comfortable place for me to stay and study English . I had an amazing time there. The family were very friendly and kind. I love them and I would like to be staying there again. I appreciate them.

저는 거기에서 좋은 시간을 보낼 수 있었어요 가족들은 저한테 진짜 친절해주시고 바닷가에도 데려다주셨요.
수업도 매일 3시간정도 받았어요
그것도 너무 좋았던 것 같아요
