For parents who have put off registering their children for communication skills/public speaking classes, don’t delay any further, especially if your goal is to improve your child’s confidence and speaking skills.

Trophies for Distinction Holders

2020 was a year of upheavals and difficulties trying to prepare our students for the Trinity College London Communication Skills exams. Considering the situation, we are happy to announce that our students managed to complete the year achieving excellent results in the examination. Many of our students had to complete two graded examinations within the same time period because of the postponement of the June exams. However, thanks to the teachers at J Carter Centre who conducted refresher lessons while at the same time teaching the regular classes, we were able to get our students ready to take the communication skills exams.

Congratulations to all of our students for their hard work. Extra ‘shout out’ to those students who achieved Distinctions in their exams.
