I'd like to choose Charles School. On the one hand, It had been chosen by Oxford and Cambridge. On another hand the school has Intensive course that is nessecery for me to advance my English.

I would choose the Charles School with a Part-time course in the morning, I work in the afternoon and I'm doing another things so these hours suit me the most.

I would choose Charles School because they have more different kinds of classes and its programs are affordable.

I choose Elithabis school to study because they have Saturday classes..

i choose no one, your course is an effective and free of cost, is this a real cost for english course in london? if your answer is yes, i should say that is so expensive,

I would choose Elizabeth School of English because firstly they have more different kind of classes, and there is English for Bussines that I want to join in. Secondly, the price in Elizabeth School of English is counted per hour so that the less time that I take to finish my English level, the less money I have to spend. Moreover, that would motivate me to learn faster so I could pay cheaper.

If you go to English school you can practise and improve your english skills more quickly than you study by yourself.

I would choose the Charles school because they have the cheapest offer if I take the morning course.

I choose Elizabeth School of English because first, it is practical not academic. Second, With less time you can pay less. Third, we have more choices to determine the class hours.

I would choose Charles School because they give detailed information about how they run their services.
