3 Testimonials Calendar November December Jaime Canosa Learning Manager, Ferrovial Corporate University I enrolled on the BEC course, set up by Garrigues, with the specific goal of improving my English. I had been attending regular weekly classes, which had helped me maintain my level of English, but I needed to greatly improve different aspects such as fluency, writing, listening, etc., and in addition, I wanted to focus on business English. The teacher is excellent and makes the classes enjoyable and fun, but he also uses a very demanding and dynamic methodology that forces you to concentrate on the class. Although the timetable appears to be quite long, the truth is that the class flies by, and I must say that I miss these sessions. I recommend this course to everyone who asks me about improving their English, and by the way, I finally passed the exam and was awarded the BEC Higher!
