Clip 'n' Climb
It’s Friday afternoon again! Every Friday is our teenage students’ exciting activities time! We have gone on so many different activities so far.
I brought my children, Kasidet and Izzy to Christchurch to join the Alpha school preparation programme for 6 months….We wanted them to prepare themselves for high school in New Zealand and we felt it was a good idea to come and study language first and also to adjust themselves to the city. Alpha helped them tremendously!
Today I flew the first flight of my life! I used many aviation words that you taught me! I needed TOEIC 650+ and I got 755!” Thank you for teaching me!
I'm happy that I choose Alpha for my language training! I needed an overall 7.0 in IELTS exam, so I made a plan to make sure I could achieve that goal...... I'm studying for my Bachelor of Nursing in SIT now, and some students who know I got 7 in my IELTS exam always ask me the same question” Where did you learn your English?” Every time I tell them that I did it in Christchurch at Alpha!
