From April 1st, 2019, JIC Academy have adjusted the time of class. The daily class time starts at 7:30 am and ends at 7:00 pm as well as the time of each class is changed from the original 50 minutes to 45 minutes. However, the students do not lose their rights. This is because the academy adds one more one-on-one class for every student to choose. In other words, students can have seven one-on-one classes a day. Therefore, a student can take nine classes daily (7 one-on-one classes and 2 special classes) which helps students get fully practice.

We have two hours speaking class that students are taught by two teachers, so students can learn different skills from them. Writing class has the same teaching method with speaking class. Moreover, we have one listening course and one reading course. In the extra one-on-one class, most of the students choose a speaking or writing course since those two are what students need to practice more.

In addition, the academy offers three special classes: grammar, pronunciation and BBC listening. I am very impressed with the teacher who teaches Cambridge IELTS grammar because of his lively teaching method. Furthermore, in pronunciation class, the teaching helps us enhance our pronunciation because the teacher introduces different pronunciation rules and gives us training. In terms of BBC Listening that the teaching way is cloze test that the students are familiarized with the British accent and pronunciation with helps us improve our listening skills.

All-in-all, we are not only learning techniques and strategies of using the English language but also we try to apply them in class and in real life situations. Therefore, for me, a good learning environment can help us study effectively and efficiently.
