[Speak Up Life] Student’s Testimonial 2

#SPEAKUPSTUDENTS SHARING THEIR EXPERIENCES AT SCHOOL, SPEAK UP STUDENT’S TESTIMONIAL.

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Sophie Pletz

My life at #SpeakUpLondon has become part of my outside life, as everything I’ve learned or experienced here has been helpful even if when I’m with friends or just doing something outside the school. While studying at SUL I’ve become more confident with using English and also I can guarantee that this experience has provided me many other lessons: independence, maturity, culture in general, freedom and of course the friends, which I’ll keep forever with me, and places I’ve been to. All these memories and experiences are priceless and it do change my life forever.

#SpeakUpLondon for me is more than just an English School, I feel like we are a big family. #SpeakUpFamily

The teachers, classmates, the programs both inside and outside of school also the location are just amazing. I couldn’t have wished for anything better. I really enjoyed my time here at SUL and it really makes a massive change in my life for the best. Plus my English is getting really good.

My experience in #SpeakUpLondon is very positive. I met lots of friends and I had a chance to learn many things.


Also, I’m lucky to have great teachers, I like Jenna and I love Holly. They are fantastic!!! I couldn’t have asked for anything better. Your school is perfect.

#SpeakUpLondon gave me a lot of good experiences. First, I found that I am more confident to talk; I’m not afraid to talk with people in different countries at all. Besides that I have a lot of good friends and enjoyed social programmes from here. #SpeakUpSocial.

Moreover, every time that I had problems I can ask for help from the reception. They will always give me a hand immediately. Well, that’s all I want to say about this institute.

Broadway Market is located in East London, Hackney. It only opens on Saturday; there are lots of different cuisines for you to choose. There is not only street food, but also restaurants beside the markets which are also amazing.  People usually just sit on the street or on the grass to enjoy the sunshine, music and delicious food.
On the other hand, Broadway Market is a local market so there are lots of people who will be walking their dog around this area.
