Three months at Hilderstone

Agnes came to us in the autumn of 2015 and stayed into 2016. With her constant smile and energy she worked hard to reach her level and get on a Masters course in Sheffield. It was no surprise to us when we heard that she had graduated.

When I went to Hilderstone College to improve speaking and writing, it was the time I needed to improve my IELTS score, which was 6 in the average for the second time. I had to reach 7 in next 6 months. I had two fantastic teachers, which were Lee and Pierre, playing an important role […]

From teachers to staff, everyone at Hilderstone is friendly and they always try to help whatever your needs. They are cheerful and positive to you. If they cannot solve your problem, they explain everything to you but mostly they solve everything. Teachers behave as a friend and they respect you, wherever you are from. They […]

Hilderstone College is the perfect place to improve your English. Thanks to the great teachers, the lessons were fun and very effective.
