I was going to New Jersey to visit my cousin, but my parents recommended me to study English while I am in the United States. Therefore, I enrolled in Fairleigh Dickinson University for English study for 6 months. I did not know about New Jersey, so I thought it was a small town, but actually it was huge. However, the school was near my cousin’s house, so the public transportation was enough for me. There are 30 lessons a week, it is an intensive program. I thought it would be too much for me at the beginning, but as I got used to it, it was easier. Also I made many friends, so speaking English was becoming more fun for me too. I was really weak at speaking before, but as I studied hard in this school, I became more confident in speaking. There are many Asians in the class. The town around the school is really pretty too, it is good for a walk. Moreover, it takes 25 minutes to go to Time Square in New York, so travelling was convenient. How I studied English was much different from Korean style studying! So if anyone is coming to New Jersey, I recommend ELS.

미국 뉴저지에 살고있는 친척집에 놀러가려고 하다가 어차피 휴학하고 놀러가는김에 어학연수를 하고 오면 좋겠다. 해서 뉴저지 테넥에 있는 페얼리 딕킨슨 ELS랭귀지센터에서 6개월동안 어학연수를 마쳤습니다. 뉴저지가 굉장히 작은동네일거라고 생각했는데, 어마어마하게 넓고 커서 깜짝놀랐어요. 그래도 친척집에서 버스를타면 금방 가기 때문에 다니기 편했어요. 저는 1주일에 30레슨을 듣는 인텐시브 영어프로그램을 들었는데, 처음엔 너무 빡센것 같아서 조금 힘들었는데 금새 영어가 늘고 친구들을 사귀면서 영어에 재미가 붙게되었어요. 영어공부는 꾸준히 해왔지만 영어 스피킹에 자신이 없었는데, 학교에서 계속해서 단어공부를 하고 말하기 수업을 듣다보니 자신감이 붙었어요. 외국인 비율은 한국인도 꽤 있고 일본인 중국인 아시아인이 제일 많아요. 그리고 테넥은 잘사는 동네라서 동네도 예쁘고 산책하기도 좋아요. 버스로 25분이면 타임스퀘어까지 가기때문에 뉴욕에 놀러가기도 너무좋았구요. ELS는 인증된 어학연수기관인만큼 영어공부에 있어서는 걱정안하셔두되요. 한국에서 영어공부하는거랑은 차원이 달라요! 뉴저지로 오시는분들은 이왕이면 ELS에서 들으시는걸 추천해요.

アメリカのニュージャージに住んでいる親戚の家に旅行行こうとしましたが、どうせ旅行行くなら語学留学してきたらいいとおもって、ニュージャージのテーネックにあるフェアリーディキンソン大学のELSランゲージセンターで6ヶ月の間語学留学をしました。ニュージャージはとても小さいなあ、って思いましたが、すーごく大きくてびっくりしました。でも親戚の家からバスに乗ればすぐに行きますので便利でした。私は1週間30時間の授業を聞くインテンシブ英語プログラムを受けましたが、最初はちょっと大変すぎると思って、こまりましたが、すぐ英語実力が上がって、英語に興味を持つことになりました。英語の勉強はどんどんしてきましたが、英語のスピーキングに自信がなかった。でも学校でずっと単語の勉強とスピーキングの勉強をしながら自身ができました。外国人の比率は日本人、中国人、韓国人のアジア人がだいたいでした。そしてテーネックはニュージャージでも上流の町なので町もきれいで散歩するにもいいです。学校からバスで25分行ったらタイムスクェアーにも行きますので、ニューヨークに行くには便利でした。ELSは保証された語学留学センターであるだけに英語の勉強に関しては心配しなくてもいいです。日本で勉強することとはすっごい違いです。ニュージャージへいらっしゃる方ならELSで留学することを勧めます。

きこり

フェアリー・ディキンズ大学にある、ELSの英語コースに参加してきました。

フェアリー・ディキンズ大学は、ニュージャージー州と、ニューヨーク州の境界にあり、マンハッタンまですぐ行くことができます。
静かで、落ち着いた雰囲気のある場所で、勉強に集中するには最適の場所だと思いました。
ELSの学生であれば、大学の施設も利用可能なので、カフェテリアや図書館はもちろんのことジムなども思う存分利用しました。
現地の大学生との交流もたくさんできて、特に寮に住んでるとパーティーのお誘いもたくさんありました。
私は現地の友人と仲良くなり、言語交換をしてもっと英語のスキルをあげれるよう努力しました。
おかげで、会話する能力は結構上達したと思います。
学校の授業でも、文法やリーディング、会話などすごくしっかり教えてくれるのですが、
やっぱりネイティブの人と会話をたくさんするのが一番為になると思います。
また、留学生の友人がたくさんできて、色々な国のことを知れたのがとても楽しかったです。
私自信も日本について話したり、おもいがけない質問を受けることもあってすごく考えさせられたし、
世界って本当に広く、色んな考えを持っている人がいるんだな、と実感しました。
なんだか自分がひとまわり成長できた気がします。留学して本当によかったと思います。

なつみ

大学進学のために半年間通いました。
大学進学コースがあることと比較的日本人学生が少ないということでここにしました。

授業は、進学に必要な大学レベルの読解、ライティング、リスニング、スピーキング、プレゼンテーションなどを重点的にやっていました。

学校はマンハッタンから離れている場所だったので学校でも自宅でも静かな環境で落ち着いて勉強できました。

私は語学学校での半年間はホームステイをしていました。自宅から学校までは同じホームステイ学生の中でも近い方だったのでよかったです。
バスで3,40分かかるという学生もたくさんいました。

日本人学生が少ないということでここの学校にしましたが、同じクラスに日本人学生がいたので
放課後や週末は良く一緒に出かけていました。
日本人同士でも学校プライベート両方で常に英語で会話をしていたのでとても力になったと思います。

なので学校を選ぶ際、そこまで日本人学生の割合を気にせずに自分がどういう風に学ぶかがレベルアップのポイントになると思います。
私達以外にも同じ国からきた学生、同じ言語の学生もたくさんいましたが
やはりみんな留学に来ている、学びに来ているのでもちろん英語での会話でした!

短期でも長期でも大きくレベルアップするかどうかは自分次第だと思います。
