校的活動很多,設施也會不定期更新,每個周末都有安排活動帶學生出遊,

老師教學方式活潑,也很有耐心,每堂課的內容雖然不同,但都注重再加強同學的聽說讀寫部分,
每學期舉辦兩次英語能力測驗的考試,便利於要進修的學生,也而外開選修課提供給學生參加.
學生都來自世界各地,不過大都來中東像是沙烏地阿拉伯,印度;以及韓國.日本.和中國各地的亞洲地區,除了可以認識各個地方不同的文化之外,也可以訓練聽除了美式以外的口音~~
這是一個以著名的旅遊城市這是著名的美食,音樂和歷史街區。
因為去附近旅行都很方便很近,因此常常與其他同學一起去旅行~~ 有很多很美好得回憶^^

大学進学のために、半年間通いました。
現在は、無事大学進学ができ、楽しい大学生活を送っています。

私が通っていたコースは、大学進学を考えている学生向けのコースなので、
大学レベルで勉強するのに必要な読解、文章力や単語力を伸ばすことが目的の授業進行になります。
大学に進学したい今、とても良い授業だったと実感しています。

語学学校に通っていた半年間は、ホームステイをしていました。
私は、基本的な日常会話はスムーズに出来るレベルだったので、ホームステイをしながら
特に不便なことはなかったですし、ファミリーもみんなとても親切で毎日ご飯も美味しく、半年間でだいぶ太りました笑
ただ、学校から自宅までの距離が少しと遠かったです!ですが、天気のいい日はゆっくり散歩しながら帰ったのもそれなりに楽しかったです!

会話力を伸ばしたい方にホームステイお薦めです!
