I'd choose Elizabeth School of English for different reasons. First of all, the prices, as I'd prefer to do evening classes and by making small calculations, I found out that classes in Elizabeth School are cheaper. Then, the schedule flexibility is very convenient for me as I don't always know in advance when I'm available. Moreover, they have different kind of classes, and at this level I might be more interested in being more fluent, communicate properly than in studying grammar. Well, grammar is useful too, but I think I'm quite self-disciplined to improve my grammar skills by myself and I don't really need a presential course for that.
