Located just east of the majestic Cascade Mountain range, Ellensburg is less than two hours from Seattle.

Ellensburg has four distinct seasons including very warm summers, a mild spring and fall, and snow in the winter. Ellensburg is a small college town with a population of about 15,000 (including CWU students). It is a friendly, fun, and safe place to live, and CWU students are welcomed as valued members of the community. The rural area provides many outdoor activities for students including hiking, fishing, mountain biking, boating, and horseback riding. Many students enjoy rafting down the Yakima River during the warmer months. During the winter months, students enjoy snow skiing at one of the four ski resorts in the surrounding area.

セントラルワシントン大学の英語研修プログラムで1年間英語を学びました。


ここの授業は比較的少人数のクラスで、レベルも自分に合ったレベルで受けることが出来ます。
先生もフレンドリーなので質問もしやすく、細かいところまでしっかり指導してくれます。
人数が多いと生徒ひとりひとりに目が行き届かないと思うので、この点はすごくよかったと思います。

また、授業以外にも学校でいろんなイベントが開催されるのですが、
それに参加することでアメリカ人とも知り合えるし、英語を使う機会も格段に増えます。
なので私はなるべく積極的に参加するようにしていました。

そして学校周辺の環境も勉強するにはとてもよい環境だと思います。
学校はWA州のエレンズバーグというところにあるのですが、大都市に比べると確かにあまり娯楽施設などはありませんが、
のどかで落ち着いた雰囲気のなかで勉強できるし、私は好きでした。

こじんまりとアットホームな雰囲気の中で、かつアメリカのキャンパスライフも見てみたいという人にお勧めの学校だと思います。
