Student Testimonial.

"I had a great experience at Q International School. It’s modern and it’s located just a few minutes’ walk from downtown San Diego. I spent there about two months, attending TOEFL Test Preparation classes. The teachers are very qualifi ed, professional and friendly. They encouraged me to reach my goal. The school staff is also amazing, I loved all the activities that they organized. It was very nice making friends with them and the other students, and I am glad we’re still in touch."
