Student Reviews

“Engaging & Organized“

The lessons in Between The Lines are engaging and very organized. I really enjoyed the lesson where we learnt about how to show feelings in words, actions and body language. I have learnt of more ways to show feelings rather than just telling.

“Improved English“

My English results improved leaps and bounds after attending their class. They have inspired me to pursue my love for English through their interactive lessons and these experiences have instilled great moral values in me.

“Widened My View“

Their perspectives and emphasis on the processes of tackling GP has truly helped me a lot. Aside from exam skills, their engaging classroom discussions have widened my view on many social issues and taught me to think differently.
