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!

I enjoyed PRONUNCIATION classes because our teacher taught us real American pronunciation and many useful phrases. It’s so good for my speaking ability and also listening ability.
My WRITING and GRAMMAR lessons were well prepared and concentrated on interesting topics.
Because of the teachers, VOCABULARY & PRONUNCIATION classes were dynamic, so it is easy to pay attention and to participate. I think that these classes have helped me to improve my English.
In our LISTENING and SPEAKING classes, the teacher gave us a lot of opportunities to practice English with many friends from many countries.
Since I came here, I’ve experienced many kinds of VOLUNTEERING. All are great memories. I really appreciate the school staff’s kindness.
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!
I love everything about my TOEIC class! For me, the class size (only 6-8 students) is perfect, and the balance of individual practice and group work is great. Also, the way that we make sentences using new vocabulary is really good.
I really liked the TOEFL class. He taught us many methods which were easy to understand, and he created a good mood in the classroom. He is the best teacher that I ever took TOEFL classes with.
I totally like my TOEFL teacher’s style! He knows the best way of teaching TOEFL. Even if I don’t completely understand, he explains it to me again…it makes me feel relief.
