“I like Q International School because the environment is amazing. The teachers come to class with interactive lessons prepared. The classes are small, and therefore the teachers can give more attention to each student. In addition, the school has a huge program with extra activities for students to do after school or on the weekends. The Fundamental English program gave me exactly what I needed in my path to learning English.”
Bruno S., Brazil

“I loved that the teachers would explain things to me in class until I could completely understand the material. At school, there was always someone that would talk to me so I was able to improve my speaking and listening skills better than before.”
Hirono M., Japan
