My HOST FAMILY is very kind and so nice! They took me to some famous place every weekend. Moreover, if I have somewhere to go, they take me to that place. And when I had some trouble, they helped me kindly.

My HOST MOTHER is a good teacher, too! After school, we usually talk to each other. And she is an excellent cook. She always fixes different dinners for me. I feel really fortunate to have such a wonderful homestay experience.

My Business English teacher was very knowledgeable and friendly...I was really able to understand how Western-style businesses work and what they expect from their employees. It was great being able to practice making presentations and writing letters and reports!

Grammar is my nightmare--I'm always confused by some concepts and details, but in the ACADEMIC ENGLISH class I felt that I made progress every day! The teacher's fast-tempo speech, well-prepared handouts, and way of getting us to immediately use what we learned was really helpful!
