I would like to choose Elizabeth school of English, because I need English class for life especially for university path and I'd love to be speaking and writing very well, and an easy to learn for any time what do I want to?

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.

I guess both schools because they have experienced teacher. As for me, I will choose Elizabeth School of English because It has the more choice about the subject and it is cheaper than Charles School. It is ok for me.

I would like to choose Charles school because I want to focus on academic English for entering school rather than practical one. Moreover, their course is not one to one lesson. I would love to make some friends to keep motivation up.

I would choose Elizabeth school because my work schedule is very crazy. And with Elizabeth school, I can choose the times that work for me. Besides that, I'm very interested in one to one class, I think It will help me improve my English quicker than take a normal class.
