"One thing I like is that there are no Thai students in my class so then I have to make friends with people from lots of countries and practice speaking English.
My teachers are good and they know how to explain things and make the lesson exciting and keep our attention and the lessons are very useful and we learn things we can practice immediately in London like what to say in shops or in restaurants.".
