I am having a great experience at Dorset College where I’m taking my English Course. The facilities are modern and well-equipped, the teachers are not only knowledgeable but also incredibly supportive and patient, they tailor their teaching methods to suit the needs of each student, making learning effective and enjoyable, encouraging participation and practical application of what we learn. Furthermore, the school’s environment is very welcoming and always provides events to encourage the communication and friendship between the students.

Studying my first course here at Dorset College has been an amazing experience. The teachers have different ways of teaching a class to make it interesting and adaptable. They tackle everything we need to know regarding the English language, which includes grammar, vocabulary, and speaking skills. The staff are all approachable and welcoming to students. They are willing to assist us with the inquiries we have. I enjoyed the events they held as I met various people all over the world.

I chose Dorset to study English, and it was definitely a great choice. I decided to study business English to improve my vocabulary in this area, and my skills are developing very quickly. At Dorset College, I found a team of highly trustworthy professionals. Everyone is so kind and lovely, and the classroom is equipped with good technology tools to assist us in our learning. After my English course, I intend to pursue a Higher Education degree at Dorset College to continue improving my skills.

We have classes that allow you to, not only improve your English skills but also learn a little bit about the world in general. I was happy enough to be introduced to Irish history while studying there, visiting museums, and using my English knowledge in real life. The staff is very helpful and friendly, always ready to help you if you have any issues or doubts. You really feel like you’re a part of something, not only a number.  I’m forever grateful for the opportunity of being a part of this community!
