    Hi! Could you please send me the course outline, course fee and course timetable to me? I am interested about ‘English for academic purpose’ and ‘IELTS English’ courses. If I have more information, that’s would be great for me to arrange time to join it on March 2019.

      Hi Sharon,
      Could you please come to our campus for checking the course outline? We usually show it with the books. And the course timetable will be announced again on Feb 4 because term 1 just started this week.
