Caroline studied on an IELTS course with us at Tti School of English last year! She is now living and studying in London. Read on to find out where her English course at Tti took her!
I moved to London in January last year, with my boyfriend. We had always wanted to study abroad and as both are passionate about music, we decided that London would be the perfect place for us. When we decided to move to London, I started to look at different options. As a singer and dancer, my first plan was to either audition for parts or apply for a musical education. The thought of applying to a University felt out of reach, due to the high level of English required. My English grade from Sweden was not enough to be accepted into university, which led me to research different English Courses in London.
I have always been insecure about my English and especially my writing, that is why I decided that an English course would be a great opportunity to improve my English. The Swedish company “Sprakpunkten” got me in contact with Tti School of English in Camden Town. The location of the school, the different options of courses and the smaller sizes of the classes, are what made me choose Tti.
During my time at Tti I got to work with fantastic teachers that helped me improve my English in both writing, speaking, reading and listening. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. The social programme gave me an opportunity to meet new people and to improve my English in a different environment.
I did two different courses during my four months at Tti, General English and IELTS. The latter was a suggestion from a teacher, and without it I would not have completed the exam with the same results. The teachers always encouraged me to improve and challenge my English level, which made me confident enough to apply for university.
After a nerve-racking IELTS exam, I finally got the English grade I needed and my application for university got accepted. I am now studying a Bachelor Degree in Music Business and Arts Management at Middlesex University!
Something that almost seemed impossible one and half year ago when I first came to London. On the 28th of May, I am organising my first gig here in London with the music promotion company Float Live Music, that my boyfriend and I started earlier this year. This project is a part of my education and is hopefully just a beginning to bigger projects.
