What Students Say

Ms. Alice Zaniolo

Hi! I’m Alice, I come from Italy and I was a student at CESC in autumn 2016. I would highly recommend this school to everyone who wants to learn or improve their knowledge of the English language. I attended the IELTS class, as my goal was to achieve at least a 7 in each component of the exam, in order to apply for a Ph.D. in Psychology.
