Student Testimonials

"After visiting SELS, I feel much more confident. The consultant seemed to fully understand my difficulties. I learned the strategies of reading and involving myself in discussion. It was my first visit and I got a huge feeling of support. Thank you."

"I think the session is helpful because the consultant not only helps me with what I have asked, but also how I can study on my own later on."
