What our students say about us:

The course was very professional, the tutors friendly and experienced the FB Accommodation wonderful and the Activities were really very interesting The big variety of dishes the group had the chance to taste at Plato Residence were really very nice.
Hi! We are a group of students from South-West state University, Russia and we spent 10 wonderful and useful days with Plato College team. What is Plato? It is nice people, professional teachers, comfortable rooms, tasty food and Cyprus! We couldn't even imagine how exiting it was going to be and we will never regret joining these courses. Thanks to all people who helped and taught us at Plato! I can definitely say - if you are interested in learning English in pleasant and easy way, just join Plato College! I hope, you will like it
The quality of the TESOL course in PLATO was excellent . The whole course was clear and interesting and well thought out. It was full of useful class-based activities which I will always refer to when I start teaching. The course’s structure and content was better than I had imagined. I was impressed by the practical methods those teachers use in a TESOL class, and also the structured approach to the course was easy to follow. I learned a lot about motivating students in a classroom, building their confidence, and supporting their language learning process. I gained an understanding of language acquisition and how the second language learning differs from learning one’s native tongue. A big thank for the staff for their encouragement and support in completing the course!

I feel I must let everyone know how successful my experience has been with the Plato Institute. First of all the summer courses are excellent and presented in a professional and friendly manner. It’s a great way to have fun and holiday in the sun while learning English. The Superminds for Kids is an excellent programme, fun and very educational. Lots of happy faces while they are learning. The food is delicious and the accommodation very comfortable, well situated in central Limmasol. There are many rich activity programmes to be enjoyed. Very highly recommended.
Thanks for a good organization at Plato school! The students enjoyed socializing at English classes. They also appreciated multicultural atmosphere at Plato residents. It is so nice to stay with people from around the world. Food was also nice.
I attended an English course in Plato Institute and it was a great experience! We had very prepared teacher and we studied by books and practice too! I lived in the “Plato house”, a very comfortable place, with kitchen, bedrooms, and all the comforts! But the real added value it’s the Plato’s people, that makes you feel in family!

My apartment is nice, it’s a big place and it’s clean, for me it’s okay. In my room there is air condition and I have a big balcony. The kitchen is nice. The course is very good, in the first week I was with 2 other students and the next week I had private lessons. The teachers were very good, and the material they gave me was very good. I enjoyed my holiday in Cyprus, it’s a beautiful place and I visited the cities, I like the cities. The beaches are very beautiful and the sea is very beautiful.
