Arnold KAs a long-term student at The School of Blore, I totally recommend James's lessons. You'll leave the school amused, enriched with valuable knowledge and happy you did something for your English! Highly recommended.
Eva BJames has been my first choice for a long time when it comes to choosing a perfect language course for my students. All of them passed their examinations with flying colours and were admitted to excellent schools abroad. It is his special blend of humour and professional approach which makes his course unique and successful. Would definitely recommend 🙂
Martin GThe School of Blore is without a doubt the best English language school in Košice, especially if you are planning to take the Cambridge English exams (FCE, CAE...) ... On the day of the exam, everything was well-prepared, went according to schedule James had sent us and there was nothing to surprise me. Highly recommended!
