I'm thinking of choosing Elizabeth School of English. Because it saves money and time. Specifically, it's easy to find out what I want to do in English with less time and money. There are a wide variety of courses in this class and less time can be specified. From this, I can try various courses in a short time and then select a course that suits me. Charles School, on the other hand, must attend at least one week. In addition, this means that I will not be able to get there without a long break to spend a week in this class, so I can't easily start going.

For these reasons I choose Elizabeth School of English.
