Enhanced communication skills can result not only in an improved social life, but also better job opportunities in the future. From job interviews to the actual professional world, communication skills are very crucial, and being proficient in English means being able to communicate clearly and effectively.
During this challenging time, we are taking safety seriously. Classroom and instruments will be sanitized after each use. Limited number of students per class so that everyone can social distance. All are required to wear a mask.
