WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

K.K., Adana - Turkey

I passed the prep class thanks to Tracy’s support. I was not able to speak in English much before I met her. I am now improving my English conversation skills thanks to her patience and support. 

N.Ü.Ö, Bursa - Turkey

I have been trying to improve my English for many years. My volunteer Nese, whom I met thanks to Strong Girls program, has become both a great teacher and an elderly sister for me. 

A.U., İzmir - Turkey

My volunteer's incredibly beautiful energy and friendly attitude makes me want to talk about any topic with her without any hesitation.
