Introduction to English for Beginners
  SeYoung
  Assistant Sales Manager

  Like most students growing up in Korea, I was able to read and write in English, but conversation had always been my weakness. I looked for a language centre which could help bring my conversation to business level, and ULC was the perfect place to achieve my goals.

The teachers from ULC are full of experience and knowledge in various fields, and this enabled me to expand my vocabulary and to speak more formally and confidently. Teachers willingly embraced my suggestions and used the best learning method to suit my needs.

Thanks to ULC, I could not only finish my training program successfully but also gain confidence in English. For anyone who seeks to improve their business English, I highly recommend ULC.

Starting English Speaking for Beginners
 Daisuke Mano
 Sales Manager

 I am learning business English which can be used in the real business world, e.g., people management, project management, presentations, meetings, and so on. The class content is created from real professional experience gained from several industries, and the knowledge shared is invaluable in everyday working life. The role-play and scenario-based learning used to teach is a very effective way to learn, and is a lot of fun. I recommend these classes to anyone either working, or looking to work in the corporate world, that wants to improve their performance and give themselves an advantage.

  During my English lessons with ULC, I was able to get more practice in speaking and making conversations. My pronunciation, grammar errors, and incorrect expressions were corrected in a friendly yet professional way.

The teachers were very experienced in organising classroom activities to help us get more effective practice. I feel that I have improved my speaking skills using a wide-range of topics. In Business English, I learned a lot of new vocabulary, phrases, and useful expressions, which continue to help me to communicate with my colleagues and customers better.

My teachers were knowledgeable, friendly, and patient when teaching and answering my questions whenever I asked them. ULC’s lessons definitely helped in making me a more confident English speaker.

Basic English Conversation Lessons for Beginners
Deborah
STUDENT

Before arriving in Singapore, I was looking for some English schools. As soon as I arrived, I scheduled visits, but without a doubt, ULC won my heart the moment I was greeted by the team. The staff are very friendly and the teachers excellent.

In the past, I always thought that learning the English language was a very difficult task. I tried to learn before, however, without success.

At school, besides the class content, they taught me that I was capable of learning something new. I‘m getting better every day and I just have to thank everyone at ULC during my time in Singapore. 💖.

STUDENT

When I first came to Singapore, I wanted to study English. I joined one school and had some lessons, but it didn’t suit me. My friend suggested going to ULC for a trial lesson.

The teachers are friendly, so I immediately liked it. I enrolled in the course and became an active member of the class. I started recommending friends and organising class lunches.

I was more confident when going to parents’ meetings, and I could communicate with my child’s foreign teachers. Learning English at ULC allows me to meet more friends. I love learning English at ULC, it is truly one of the best English courses I have attended in Singapore.

Essential English Vocabulary for BeginnersJanice
STUDENT

I work in a Korean company. I don’t have the opportunity to use English, so I wanted to take the chance to take an English language course in Singapore.

I took trial language courses elsewhere, but compared to the other places, ULC was so good and my trial class was so fun! I had a lot of opportunities to talk and it was great to study English while communicating with people from other countries while I was in Singapore!

The teacher corrects pronunciation and grammar, but explains it easily so that you can understand! If you want to communicate with other people and learn English together, I recommend ULC business class! 😁
