The teachers at BUV and the syllabus really focused on helping students conquering the IELTS exam. It was incredibly helpful attending classes at BUV with those mentors. The exercises and activities aimed to refine our comprehensive and productive skills. The extracurricular activities were amazing as well. Besides working on the workbooks and mock tests, teachers were skilled in identifying areas of weakness and working with us on them. They altered the curriculum effectively to best fit students’ abilities. Protection Status
