Student Testimonials / Where are they now?

For me, the experience is amazing because I never been in college. So, a new experience is very welcome to me. I also really enjoy it as the teachers are really helping me understand English and the importance of retailing really well. I’m really enjoying college and the course because I like to discover new things and learning more about retail. My favourite thing about the college and the course is that the teachers are very professional and nice. They are supporting and helping us with everything that we need for the course.
