"The best thing about studying at GELI is the opportunity to meet so many people from different countries and learn English in a multi-cultural environment. The teachers are very dedicated and friendly and always keen to help you succeed. I had never studied English before so I started in General English and went through to the Direct Entry Program. I am confident that my English skills will provide new career opportunities for me." - Adriana Rivas, Venezuela.
