Reviews from our students

“I got an insight into several interesting subjects which I haven’t heard about before, or I just didn’t pay too much attention to. I became aware to my body language, way of assertiveness, and I am trying to use all of the skills I learnt during the course.”

Bernadette, Hungary

“I enjoyed writing on discussion board and reading others’ opinions. Formulating thoughts, especially in English, is a little hard for me, so I think it was really helpful. And it’s also always interesting to read others’ ideas.”

Rita, Belarus

“Everything was wonderful. The tutor explained everything clearly so that we understood everything and got very important experience communicating with an English-speaking person.”

Violetta, Russia

My experience with EtonX will make a positive impact on my future in that I will always remember the skills I learned when taking the course. Furthermore, when I am in something like an interview I will keep these skills in the back of my head. 

Neel, Making an Impact Student 

 

EtonX has helped me become more confident and sure of myself, as a unique individual.
