Improving my career path – Seulki Kim
Eversince I had a desire for a career upgrade, English has always been my biggest obstacle. During the moments when I had to speak English, I couldn’t help but stutter out of pressure and nervousness. Meanwhile, I was offered a great position that required English language skills. Luckily, I found the British Council, and registered for the 1 month intensive course. Having to take 32 lessons in a month poses a great challenge for an office worker but my spirit was focused on language study for the entire month.
After each lesson, I became more comfortable with speaking English and my habitual stutter started to reduce. Within a month of studying at the British Council, I went through 4 rounds of interviews, and by the last interview, I was 100% confident in myself and was able to talk fluently without forgetting what to say and even answer questions with little or no preparation. I definitely achieved this feat due to all the practice I had with my classmates and teachers during the lessons. As a result, I was able to get the position.
I'd like to say if you truly want to achieve a goal, and English is essential in achieving the goal, I highly recommend you to stop hesitating, contact the British Council and reach for your dreams.

Starter to Pre-intermediate in 3 months! – Hyeonjeong Choi
As I look back to past three months starting from Foundation level coming up to Pre-intermediate, the biggest help for me to improve in English was the teachers. Their professional teaching curriculums and methods with their passion had a big influence in my English studies. Secondly, the systematic learning management through various counselling services with Student Advisors and assessments during classes by the teachers assisted my learning experience. The ‘assessment’ feedbacks from the teachers were extremely helpful. Thirdly, the access to class notes on the phone application let me review whenever I could; and this gave efficiency on my English studies. Lastly, the dynamic interaction with various learning participants in classes was also effective in improving my speaking skills.
For those people hesitating on studying English with a fear of learning it, I hope this testimonial gave you some courage, and I recommend you to get various help from the British Council Teaching Center.
