Expert Teachers and Small Classes
Our teachers are university-educated professionals with many years of experience. In addition to being experts in English language instruction, many of our teachers are also experts in other interesting areas, such as law, real estate, fitness and yoga, and politics. Our teachers use our customized instructional books for all 12 learning levels. Small classes mean more individual attention and faster learning.
"... While I was here I had the chance to meet not only native US citizens, but also other international students who were just as far or more from home as myself. Here I was able to see that cultural differences are more than just differences in language, food, appearances, and personal habits. . I have nothing but praise for those teachers that encouraged me with a lot of patience to seek for more knowledge. Every class was a constant challenge and I found myself learning something new every day. I absolutely could not have asked for a better, more eye-opening experience. This summer was an amazing time and I feel as if I have grown a lot as a person and in my language skills. I will miss my host family, friends and teachers..."
