Kumiko*

I enrolled in a language course in Eckerd College for a year. Choosing ELS was really a tough choice, since there are so many! After all, my choice of Eckerd College turned out really good. The ELS institution was actually inside the Eckerd College, which as nice, because I was able to enjoy a campus life as well. The campus is beautiful, it has palm trees and the atmosphere is really bright and cheerful. I was only going to stay for a semester, but I extended another semester. Now I have ELS certificate, I want to attend a university in USA someday. During my semester in Eckerd College, I visited Universal Studio and Disney Land. All the experiences are very valuable for me. Eckerd provided not only the education but also life experiences!

エッカードカレッジでELSプログラムで1年間語学研修をして来ました!ELSってたくさんのところであるので、どこにするか、本当に迷ったのですが、エッカードカレッジに決めて本当に良かったです!!語学学校のように語学を学ぶだけでなく、私立のエッカードカレッジのなかに校舎があるので、キャンパスライフも楽しめることが出来ました。キャンパスにはヤシの木もあり開放的な雰囲気で、本当に自由な環境で学ぶ事が出来ました!元々、1学期だけ授業を受けるつもりでしたが、とっても気に入って延長して1年間滞在しちゃいました。ELSの終了証ももらえたのでいずれかは、アメリカの大学に進学もしたいなあと思っています。アドバイザーが色んなサポートもしてくれたので本当に楽しく過ごせました。週末に海はもちろん、ユニバーサルスタジオに出かけたり、たくさんの楽しい思い出がいっぱいです!

ELSは、エッカード大学のキャンパス内にあります。

エッカード大学は敷地がとても広くて、建物も綺麗なゆったりとした雰囲気の大学です。
ELSの建物も清潔で、近くに色々な施設があるので、とても便利でした。
私は大学内の寮を利用したのですが、そちらも清潔感があって、良かったです。
授業は基本的にリーディング、ライティング、リスニング、スピーキングをバランス良く学ぶ感じです。
先生が優しかったので、とても良かったです。
寮でアメリカ人や、他の留学生と仲良くなれたのが一番いい思い出です。
いろんな経験をさせてくれて、留学して本当によかったと感じています。

大学1年生の時から、大学4年間の間の夏休みを利用してエッカードカレッジへ
留学したいと考えていて、大学3年生の夏休み、ついに留学に行くことができました!

私が、エッカードカレッジに決めた理由は、
-レベルが高い
-日本人からも人気
-勉強もしつつ観光も思う存分楽しみたい!

この3つの理由で選びました!
留学するなら、同じ国の人は少ない方がよい!という人が多いと思いますが
私は慣れない土地での生活が少し不安だったので
日本人からも人気が高い学校を選びました。
学校周辺は、観光する場所もたくさんあるのでとても楽しかったです!
なんといってもディズニーワールド!
とても広すぎて私はすべて回れなかったですが、最高に楽しかったです!


授業は、全コース12クラス構成で自分のレベルにあったクラスで
学べるので、無理なく確実にレベルアップすることが出来ます!
学校施設も自由に利用可能なので放課後たまに友達と運動したりもしました^^


英語の実力を伸ばしつつ、観光も楽しみたい方にとてもお勧めです!
