    I studied at the Cambridge Center for Teaching English, and the content of the course was very useful, as I started from the fourth and fifth level to addressing the first level, and their way of teaching was useful, beautiful and very enjoyable. Those around us, and in addition to the level of communication, we used to provide dialogue and conversation in the theater, training, and discussing some life topics, and it was very interesting. I noticed that the English language has improved very much, and I will continue in the courses at the center until I become excellent and professional.
