If you’re thinking about studying at Northumbria… don’t worry! The first day when I arrived everything was so new and unfamiliar. I used to record the class and listen to it when I got home, but over the last few months my language skills have improved so much I don’t need to do this anymore. The teaching methods include teamwork, presentations and independent learning so this is a good variety which will help develop further skills.
