What do international students say about EISU English support?

International student "I did the EISU self-assessment test and then attended some of the drop-in English support classes, that my test results suggested I should do, in my lunchtimes.  By doing the online test I chose the classes most suitable for me.  EISU also helped me later in the year when I booked a one-to-one session and an EISU teacher gave me individual help for 30 minutes."
