Kimberly Ann Nurse UK "I'd like to express my sincerest gratitude to TTM English. Thank you, sir Alain, for helping me prepare for my OET. After trying out other online and local OET courses and still ending up feeling dissatisfied with my result, I purchased TTM English intensive course a week before the actual test, and it was oh so worth it! Sir Alain worked with me very closely, giving me detailed corrections and guiding me step by step in writing a letter including how to analyse the case notes. Even though I only had barely 5 days to prepare, sir Alain believed in me because he could see that I was working really hard. With his help, I made huge progress day after day. When he said that he wanted me to pass the OET, I was really thankful for the encouragement that I did not want to disappoint him! Not every teacher supports their students this much. Two days before the test, he said that I was ready for the exam and that I should not learn anything new and just relax. I did my best in the actual exam. Although I wasn't able to proofread my letter and sign off because I ran out of time, I still got a B grade in writing. It's all thanks to TTM English. :) Their letter structure is the best! While waiting for the results, they allowed me to continue attending their interactive grammar/IELTS/OET classes so that I continue to learn and practice English. What I really like in their course is that they offer both the IELTS and the OET in the package, so I also attended their IELTS classes simultaneously. Sir Paul and sir Alain can also be contacted on Skype if I have questions, and they really answer them! By the way, my OET scores are SWLR (380, 360, 380, 430). If only I had found TTM English sooner, I would not have wasted lots of money on other online and local courses"
EJ Arciaga Surgical Nurse, Philippines "...I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Alain who offered his perpetual support in achieving my goal of passing the English exam. I am so honored to work with Alain in this professional milestone. He is such a great person. Prior to joining this group, I admit that I was having difficulty with my grammar and sentence structuring but my mentor is very accommodating and very patient in teaching me all the details that I have to improve. I will never forget the repeated discussions with him about articles and conditionals! Thank you so much again!..."
