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 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.

I really liked staying with my HOMESTAY FAMILY. I rarely felt homesick due to their kindness and the cozy atmosphere they created.
