“I’m impressed with RGIT. I like my course, it has helped me improve English and enjoy the various activities and creativity of our teacher. I have met a lot of new friends of different nationalities, which makes learning very enjoyable.”
Kanjana Kamphaengkaew, General English Level 1
“RGIT is in the CBD, it is easy to go anywhere after school. If we don’t understand, our teacher draws in the blackboard, which makes it easy to understand. Sometimes we play English games and go for field trips. Here, I don’t just learn English, but learn more about Australian culture and make new friends.”
Yu Tsan Chang, General English Level 2
“All my friends speak Spanish and I had no opportunity to practice English, but at RGIT, as students are from different countries, I could only communicate using English. My trainer always gave personalised inputs to my work. My vocabulary has improved and now I know many new expressions.”
Carlos Zambrano, General English Level 3
