무엇보다 한국인이 거의 없어서 영어 공부하기에 정말 좋았고 소수 정예 수업이어서 선생님과의 교류가 활발했습니다. 모르는 거 있을 때마다 다 물어봤는데 늘 친절하게 가르쳐 주시고ㅜㅜ 대학 기숙사에서 살고 대학 동아리 활동도 하면서 대학생들이랑도 친하게 지냈어요. 미국 대학 생활 간접 체험이라고나 할까요? 스포츠 좋아해서 경기장도 많이 다녔습니다.


---------------------

何よりも韓国人がほとんどなく、英語の勉強するには本当に良く少人数制クラスなので、先生との交流がたくさんありました。知らないことがあるたびに尋ねて、いつも親切に教えてくださって・・・大学の寮に住んで大学サークル活動もしながら、大学生やらも親しく過ごしました。アメリカの大学生活間接体験といったところでしょうか?スポーツ好きの競技場もたくさん通いました。

---------------------

最好的莫過於學校裡幾乎沒有其他韓國人,所以在學習英文方面很有利,並且班級規模不大,所以有很多可以與老師交流的機會。每次有不懂的地方,老師都很親切的回答,住在學校宿舍裡的時候也參加了學校社團的活動,和大學裡的其他同學很親近地一起生活了。要不要一起間接體驗美國的大學生活呢 ? 因為喜歡運動,所以我也去了很多次體育館。

私は9月からアビラ大学に正規留学生として進学するために、ILCPに通いました。


まず感じたことが、施設がとても整っていて綺麗です。
私は寮住まいなのですが、比較的新しいということもあり、清潔で快適に生活できています。
学校の近くにショッピングモールや公園などもあって、たまに授業終わりに友達と遊びにいきます。
ダウンタウンまで出なくても十分学校周辺だけで何不自由なく生活できるので、立地は比較的良いと思います。

また、学校自体全校生徒1500人くらいの比較的小規模な学校なので、
こじんまりしていてどことなくアットホームな雰囲気があります。
先生たちもフレンドリーで、いつも親身になって接してくれるので、とても頼もしいです。

そして現地の学生も寮生活している人が多いので、ともに生活をしていくうえで仲良くもなれますし、
語学学校だけに通う場合は現地の学生と触れ合える機会があまりないと思うので、学外のアパートに住むよりも学生寮をお勧めします。

勉強もきちんとできるし、生活もし易いので、私としてはすごくおすすめの学校です。
