ゆりえ

大学の夏休みを利用して2ヶ月間留学しました。


NYのような都会ではなく、少し落ち着いたところにいきたかったのと、
ここのバケーション英語プログラムというのが短期の留学にはぴったりだったので、ここに決めました。

まず、教材がとても面白くて、生徒が興味を持って楽しく勉強出来る内容になっています。
外で使う機会が多い単語やフレーズをピックアップして習って、
放課後やアクティビティの時に実際に使いながら連中することが出来ます。

また、私は学校に紹介してもらったホームステイ先に滞在していたのですが、本当にすばらしいホストファミリーでした。
いつも食事の面や生活の面で私に気を使ってくれて、留学中ずっと安心して生活することが出来ました。
留学を終えるとき、ホストファミリーと別れるのが一番辛かったですが、絶対また会いに行きたいと思います。

そして、チェスナットヒルはダウンタウンから離れていることもあって静かで落ち着いた雰囲気なので、
勉強するにはとても良い環境です。
フィラデルフィア自体日本人も少ないので、私は留学の穴場だと思っています。
とてもおすすめです。
