Paula Miotk

Course: ESOL (16-18 Study Programme)

Paula decided to join New College Durham after hearing positive reviews from her brother who studied with us.

She said:

“The best thing for me was the diversity of many cultures. I really enjoyed the ESOL programme and loved spending time with people from different countries. We all worked together and got along and learnt more about each other’s cultures.

“The campus itself was very spacious and modern. It was a nice and fun environment to be in. We got the opportunity to go on a fun trip to Newcastle. It was great to see the city for myself and tell my brother about my fun experience.

“I want to study at university, and with my newly acquired English skills, this is going to be much easier for me. I have majorly improved my writing and speaking skills and I’m excited to take the next step in my education.”

“My time at New College Durham was full of diversity, equality and excitement!”

Paula has progressed her skills and is looking forward to taking the next step to university.
