I liked the INTEGRATED SKILLS class because it was fun and we always talked and talked and talked about different topics. It was very interesting.

I wouldn’t have passed the test without this TOEFL class, that’s for sure! The way they teach the TOEFL was a very good exercise for the brain and is helping me with my classes at university. It was very helpful!

To VOLUNTEER in the French American International School and help people to learn Spanish was fun. I felt very comfortable because I could learn and practice English at the same time I could teach them about Spanish.

Living with my HOST MOTHER was a wonderful experience. We went to the theater, played board games, and even did yoga classes together. Everything was great!
