I would like you to know that I am very grateful for everything that you have helped me with. I thank you for all the time I spent in this school and I wish you all the best!
I want to thank my teachers for their lessons and I would like to recommend this school because for me it was a great opportunity to see a new country and visit wonderful places around Ireland. In all this time I have met many new friends from different cultures and different countries.
All of the staff and course programmes are well organised for their students’ demand. I would highly recommend ATC to students who are trying to build a brighter future.
ATC is a good place to meet new people and make friends. I myself have made some very good friends from different parts of the world, which has helped me to develop my English, but beyond that, my interpersonal skills.
