Message from Principal
A warm welcome to Ascend -The English Professionals, Singapore. I understand that the decision to further your studies and improve your English is not an easy one to make. The most important factor in making that decision should be the quality of the institution you intend to study in. As a teacher and co-founder of Ascend, I take PRIDE in the courses we are able to offer you. Since, we started in 2004 we have been welcoming students from around the world to our Centre. Our mission is to develop your English communications skills and your life skills, be it for further study, work or for self-improvement. I hope you find our website both informative and useful and we look forward to welcoming you to Ascend – The English Professionals. David Doyle Principal Ascend Education Center
