Online Students of the Month - July 2020

Congratulations Clara and Jennifer!

A few words from their teachers:

Clara is from Girona in Catalonia, in northern Spain. She used to work in the treasury department of the Girona City Council; since January she’s been on sabbatical. She joined our online classes because she thought brushing up on her English was a good way to spend her new-found free time!

Her favourite thing about the online classes is the teaching approach, which is different to that of schools she’s attended in the past, and means lessons are more dynamic and challenging.

Clara is an excellent student and classmate. She is friendly, focused, and inquisitive – a pleasure to teach. She has also produced some excellent written work, and regularly attends our online social programme events.


Jennifer is from Bogota in Colombia. A lawyer, she’d like to do a Master’s in tax law, and needs a high level of English before she can apply. Before she started her lessons, she was working as a tax lawyer in the Colombian High Court.

Her favourite thing about IHB’s online lessons is their personal feel – she says that working on her own computer means she can take things at her own speed. She also loves meeting people from other countries, learning about their cultures and sharing her own.

Jennifer has been studying with IH Bristol for several months now, and her excellent attitude, her openness in conversation, and her genuine interest in others are all highly appreciated by her classmates and teachers alike. And, like Clara, she has also produced some excellent writing!

Well done both!

IH Bristol will continue to offer online courses after we reopen for face-to-face courses on 3rd August - explore our full range of courses here
