(Optional Program)


The best outcome that I have achieved from this 4 week program is that I overcame my fear of speaking English. In the beginning I felt awkward using English to communicate with other students from 40 different countries, but I became more and more confident after practicing everyday for 4 weeks


I could improve my English language proficiency while taking ESL courses and at the same time, I also could learn about other cultures and perspectives by interacting with students of diverse cultural backgrounds. Yet my favorite part of the program was field trips in which I could learn the history and culture of America

I would like to say thank to all the staff members who helped me and guided through the entire program for 4 weeks. I felt grateful to see them working so hard just to make us have better experiences in every possible way

I have never seen a University that is so devoted to help students learn English. It was a very new experience for me to form a learning community with people from all around the world. Interacting with English native speakers would be helpful, but personally I really enjoyed being surrounded by other students who are going through the same learning process as I was. It was a truly great opportunity to learn about diverse cultures and it broaden my perspective of the world
