祐子

私は後に工科大学に進学を希望していたので、

ここのキャンパスにあるELSに通うことにしました。

フロリダは暖かくて、寒いのが苦手な私にとってはとてもすごし易い環境でした。
何でも揃っているので暮らし易いのですが、車がないと移動するのは少し不便かもしれません。
私の場合は寮生活で、そこまで外に出かけることもなかったのでまだ大丈夫でしたが、
移動することが多い人は車は必需品だと思います。

授業は本当に会話中心に進められて、
ディベートのようにクラスで意見を言い合う時間が長いです。
そのおかげで会話力はついたと思いますし、なによりクラスメートと仲良くなるきっかけになったと思います。
特に他の国から来た留学生はとても活発で明るいので、クラスがとても盛り上がったと思います。
休みの日にビーチに遊びに行ったりもしました。

こうへい

落ち着いて勉強できる環境の学校へ留学したいと思い、
フロリダ工科大学の語学学校を選びました。

フロリダは気候も暖かく、治安もいいので落ち着いて勉強は出来ましたが、
週末どこかへ遊びに行くとなると車がないととても不便でした。
僕はフロリダに友達がいて、車を持っていたので週末はビーチに行ったりしていました。
ディズニーランドへも車で1時間くらいでいけるので1年の留学の中で2回いきましたが、
アメリカのディズニーランドはとても広いので2回いったのにも関わらず全部回れなかったです笑

クラスは、一般英語コースで学びました。
月曜日から木曜日は午前と午後に授業があり、金曜日は午前のみの授業なので、放課後と週末は、よくセンターの実施する課外活動に参加していました。
そこで結構友達が出来ました!

滞在中は学生寮に住んでいたんですがとてもお薦めです!
学生寮でも結構友達が出来ますし、日常会話の練習にもなりました!
