In my opinion, I prefer to study English at Charles School because it has a lot of choices that are convenient for me like intensive courses, and part-time courses as well.
We know it's more expensive than Elizabeth School, but I choose it to let me make many things in the period that I am in related to search a job, traveling and making more relationships with other people.

I’d prefer to study the English language at Elizabeth School, because it provides you with an opportunity to set a flexible studying schedule for your needs, has more different courses which meet varying demands of potential clients and offers more time in which you can master the language. Besides, all of the teachers at the school are experienced in their job and have high qualifications.

if I must choose, I will choose Elizabeth School. the first reason is the price. With this choice, I will save some money. it can be a large amount of money but in my country, it is very huge. I can learn many skills. the second reason is English for life. English for Engineer. It is great because I am learning Infomation Technology at a university. I think it is very important for me. I didn't ever see another school teach English for job. that is my opinion.
