I choose Elizabeth School of English. Because I can choose the course that suits my needs from the many courses. So I can learn what I'm interested in. And there are one-to-one classes in this school. Therefore, Elizabeth School's teachers would be able to take time to teach me what I don't understand. For these reasons I choose Elizabeth School of English.

I choose Elizabeth School. Although the tuition fees are higher than those at Charles School, the quality of English classes seems to be good because the teacher's careers are high and there are also one-to-one classes. Also, I think it is good to be able to decide the classes time myself.

I would like to choose Charles School. I think the most important point to learn English is the what you can do and what you cannot do. I think language is very difficult and spend long time. So, you have to study one by one. So, I think Charles School is better. This school has three courses reading, writing and listening. I think it is good. It is because, you can know what you are good at and you are not good at. Sometimes you have a mistake. So, it can clearly. If you know, your English study will progress.
