Course Concept

Our instructor, Nick is equipped with a wide range of skills from exemplary speech to a sophisticated vocabulary. He made us understand ideas and concepts using references we could easily perceive and comprehend. He was also apt with all the literature chapters we did, specifically Shakespeare. It taught me how to portray my ideas and stage my thoughts in the right manner. It also gave me a fruitful introduction to IGCSE English I’ll learn this coming year.
