WHAT PEOPLE SAY

JIMIN LEE

JINNY

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 every day for 4 weeks

JIMIN LEE

I would like to say thank you to all the staff members who helped me and guided me 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

HAILEY KOOOK

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
