Banan’s Online Classes

Banan on the Top Floor of Shandon Tower – Cork City

I completed level B1 and I am nearly to finished B2 at Cork English Academy. It was a brilliant experience.

The teachers did their best to help us and make everything clear and let us communicate which other students and practice speaking as much as possible.

My speaking is the most improved. The most challenging for me is practicing writing skills.

I don’t get a chance to practice English outside of school hours so speaking to teachers and classmates was important for me.

In my opinion I didn’t find huge differences between studying online and studying in person. The teachers were still brilliant. However, the relations and communication between students is better in person, in the school.

Here are some photos I took of Cork:

Thank you Banan. We wish you all the best!
