The teachers are highly qualified

Dominion has a well-established teaching staff with excellent qualifications and experience. Our methodology, materials and equipment are all first class.
I have been studying at Dominion for 6 months. I chose Dominion because I was looking for a school with a long experience teaching English and where I can find classmates from other continents – now I have friends from around the world. I like studying here because of the environment, it’s really cool, the teachers are very close to us, we can talk and laugh with them anytime and they let us feel very comfortable.

In addition to studying at Dominion English School, I work as an au pair in my host family. I am therefore one of the few who only have morning classes. This has allowed me to meet many other friends from all over the world besides my au pair job. The lessons are a lot of fun and can’t be compared to normal school lessons, which could get a bit boring. In my class there is always a very good atmosphere and I am always amazed how openly we all deal with each other.

I love Dominion! I learned English at Dominion for more than a year. I cannot say thank you enough to teachers and school for helping me out through my journey with the school. I am a rugby player and aspiring to play professionally in the future. It was challenging to study and play rugby at the same time, but I am glad that I pushed myself to complete my courses. I am proud that I have done IELTS and TESOL after improving my English. I gained a lot of confidence through my studies.
