The assessment questions allowed me to talk about many interesting things so I could speak and write a lot. I think this helped me to get a high score.

The speaking techniques, such as pausing and changing intonation, I can use in any situation when I have to speak English and I want to be engaging. The techniques really work!

The feedback provided by my instructor and classmates was really valuable. I can apply what I learned and I feel more confident when I speak English now.
