The experience of learning at English Now has been extremely enriching. I joined this institution as a student who required help with preparation for PTE academic English exams. I only had 2 weeks to prepare and was desperate for help. Sandeep Sir was kind enough to accept me as a student in this course with such limited time to train. In those 2 weeks he stretched to give me the best training that I could have asked for. The tips, learning aids, homework material to prepare, guidance was simply superb. I can say this with experience that in Mumbai the best place for getting trained on PTE academic is English Now..my results prove it :-) I scored 8 band across all papers...A big Thank You to Sandeep Sir and English Now

I attempted PTE for the very first time and scored 78 marks overall. This is because excellent tips were shared by Sandip sir.i was very nervous before the exams. On the day of the exam like Sandip sir said I made sure I did not carry my "psychological baggage" with meπŸ˜‰πŸ˜ƒ...his dedication is immense...he makes sure each of his student is looked after. He also took some extra classes for me when my exam was just 4 days away. Thanks Sandip sir and English Now.
