“Thanks to Andrew, I really did well with my speaking test. I really appreciate his help and teaching.” – Kyu Yeol

“I learned many things in Andrew’s class. He is a very good teacher. Sometimes he makes a joke for everyone, and makes everyone happy. I really enjoyed his class. I will never forget the things he taught me.” – Kiyomi

“I was a nurse so I was not familiar with business. Now after Andrew’s class, I’m more familiar with business English. I will review it because I don’t want to forget about the class. I was lucky that he was my teacher. I can see he spent a lot of time for the class.” – Shoko

“When I studied BEC at first, it was so difficult. But, Andrew is very good at teaching! I’ve never met a teacher like him. He is very enthusiastic!” – Youngjae

“I quite think I was right to take the BEC course. It was a little difficult for me, but I could gain good knowledge and experience. Andrew is a great teacher! I respect him. After I go back to Japan, I want to find a new job using English.” – Yuiko
