STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
 
I HAVE GAINED AN EXCEPTIONAL EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE

I was very pleased with Discover English’s Business English course. The topics used in the textbooks were interesting and the teacher also made sure to include current affairs which made the course even more challenging. We also did daily listening of the live radio news which not only helped me with my listening skills but also gain knowledge of the current news in Australia.

My class had many students from different nationality and it was also interesting learning about their cultures. Communicating in English is not easy but people in Melbourne are very friendly and always tried to understand me. I have gained an exceptional experience of my life!
