"After studying in General English, I decided I wanted to take the FCE course. Extreme English was the perfect stepping stone and it really helped me prepare for FCE. Although these courses were challenging and intensive, I enjoyed it very much and felt that it was the best decision I had ever made."


"I studied at Impact for six months and the IELTS course helped me achieve the score that I needed to get into a university in Australia! My teachers were very passionate and knowledgeable and constantly gave me feedback on my progress. Because of the English Only rule I made lots of good friends at Impact."


"I came to Australia to improve my English and to have a working holiday experience. I couldn’t decide which city so Impact was the perfect choice because I could study in both Brisbane and Melbourne. After moving to Melbourne, I fell in love with the cafés and wanted to become a barista. The Barista course helped me understand the hospitality industry and gave me the experience I needed to find a job in a café!"


"My teachers are kind and awesome, they helped me a lot! I enjoyed all aspects of learning English - reading, writing, listening and speaking. And I really like the English Only Policy. At the beginning, it was very hard, but later I spoke English with my friends even though we were out of school! I made so many friends from different countries, like Anna!"
