Client feedback from Milan!

Adriana Sorbellini (Italy)

“I would like to thank OLC for organising such an interesting Business English course for me. I am the CEO of a company ( in Milan, Italy, and your course helped me to improve my Business English. The course was tailor-made based on my needs and I felt that I gained valuable and useful language structures in order to communicate more effectively in the workplace.

The School is friendly and welcoming, and the courses are suited to the students’ needs. My teacher, Mr Hossein Raisi, is very well organised, professional, creative, interactive and approachable. He shares his knowledge and experience with the students and is practical in his approach. In fact, the course gave me not only the language but also new insights and business ideas which I am now using. I would highly recommend OLC’s Business English course to you.”

Back to business in Shanghai!

My name is Tian Wen. I’m from China. I arrived in the UK in April [2015]. Before that, I was working for a real estate company as a sales manager. I came to OLC to improve my English, especially for Business English. I finished my five months’ course one month ago. The time I spent here was amazing.

Every morning I had a General English lesson from 9:00 to 12:30. My teachers, Fiona, Stephanie and Hossein, were very kind and professional. They always made the lesson interesting so that everyone could enjoy it. I had enough time to practise speaking, listening and reading. My classmates were from different countries all over the world. They were so lovely. We had a lot of fun and helped each other to study better. The atmosphere was so good.

Every week I had five hours of Business English in the afternoon. My Business English teacher was Hossein. In his lesson I had the chance to interview the Principal of OLC, to listen to the Finance Manager sharing his working experience and to attend a lecture given by an expert from a security company. And he also suggested that I took the BEC TEST (Business English Cambridge), which might be helpful for my work in the future. I took his advice and passed the Vantage level exam at the end of the term.

By the way, my host family was extremely nice. We have been friends and will absolutely keep in touch by Whatsapp. Now I’m going back to Shanghai to continue my working life. I guess I’ll never forget those days in OLC.
