What our students think…

I am a full time housewife and mum and have managed to achieve a grade B Spanish A level. Through access to the high quality course and Spanish
tutor at OOL I am now able to hopefully pursue a teacher training course in French/Spanish and this would not have been possible without being able to combine home study via OOL with childcare responsibilities. The course has allowed me to work at my own pace and avoid wasting time traveling to College. The student Adviser was helpful and professional at all times and I was given information well in advance of booking an examination centre.
