What do international students say about the BIA's English support?

“I did the English 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. The BIA also helped me later in the year when I booked a one-to-one session and a BIA teacher gave me individual help for 30 minutes.”
