I’m Zohra and i come from Sicily (Italy).  I arrived in Manchester 2 months ago and I immediately started to study at MLC . I really enjoy the time that I spend in Manchester and the English lessons provided. Here I met a lot of people from everywhere in the world and I can practice my English with them ! I recommend Modern Language Centre to everyone ! 



MLC is an amazing place to be in.
I enjoyed the classes. I have received tips that improved my English and I will use forever. The atmosphere at MLC is really comfy. Most important, the staff take care of the students. The social activities here help the student to practice the language and equivalently to enjoy our time. It is difficult to choose ‘’ the best ‘’ memory at MLC because everything was incredibly nice.
