“I have been studying at the Harvest Institute since last year and that has given me an opportunity to make my English very efficient. When I first started, I had a very strong accent but right now it is really reduced to a minimum level, which makes me more confident and will be helpful in my future. Moreover, the Harvest English Institute provides an opportunity to meet students from different countries. It is helpful to understand customs from different cultures. Teachers are cooperative and always helpful resolving any study related problems.”
“Studying at Harvest Institute has helped me to improve my English. When I first started I thought it would be impossible to learn but the teachers encouraged me from the beginning with the grammar classes combined with Conversation, Pronunciation, and Writing Classes, proving to me that I was capable of learning. ”
“Being a student at Harvest Institute is a great experience because of the people that I have met here and the knowledge that will give me many more opportunities in my future career. After studying for over a year, my English has improved a lot. Also, the warm atmosphere provided by the teachers and classmates makes me feel comfortable and that increases my motivation and reassures me that coming here was the best choice.”
“Learning English for me means more than learning words to speak and listen. I chose Harvest Institute because you learn more, for example, there are good teachers and they only speak English, the students are great, and the school setting is very nice. So, I think here is the best for everyone. Thanks, Harvest!”
