Student Success Stories - City College International

Lenka Plzáková, Czech Republic - Cambridge CAE

Lenka came to the UK after to taking a gap year from her university studies in Czech Republic to improve her English language skills. She worked part-time alongside completing her studies at the college.

“I knew I wanted to find a job and to study at the same time but I didn‘t know which school or course would be the best for me. I opted for the City College due to a friend’s recommendation and also the price was much better than some of the other schools in Brighton.”

“When I came to Brighton I was living in a hostel for 2 months and then I found my own flat. I found a job in a restaurant within the first week of my arrival and I was very happy there. From April I started to attend the course and it was just perfect! I loved everything about it.”

“The teacher was the greatest teacher of English you can imagine, he prepared us brilliantly for the exams. My classmates were all from different countries and all of them were so friendly and nice. When the course finished my classmates and I took the CAE exam - I passed!”

City College offer both full and part time Cambridge Exam Preparation courses. For more information contact
