在密蘇里大學堪薩斯分校念語言課程的過程中,體會到真得去美國念書的感覺,一直是我的心願,終於實現了!!

我學的是密集英語課程,課程皆為小班制,老師都能非常照顧到所有的學生。
通用英語課程將聽、說、讀、寫課程與特定技巧加強課程相結合,為每一位學生提供獨一無二的英語學習課程。 
一直很想出國唸書且羨幕別人能達到這個夢想,沒想到我今天也可以,我今天可以不單單是靠自己的力量,而是要由衷的感謝留學中心幫我圓這個夢~
因為有過這個學習的經驗讓我對自己的英文方面更有自信,更清楚知道未來要走的道路。
推薦大家都到密蘇里大學堪薩斯分校念密集英語課程~~

原本我一直煩惱,我的英文說得這麼爛,來到一個人生地不熟又語言不通的國家,只有我一個人沒有認識任何人,我該怎麼辦,直到我真的來到了這裡,我很慶幸有這機會自己也沒有放棄這個機會,來到這裡發現我之前所想的都是白擔心了,雖然英文很爛但只要你試著說加上肢體語言,別人都是聽得懂得,我收穫最大就是,不管想做什麼事,不要放棄,做就對了。踏出台灣才知道自己的不足,台灣有很多地方還沒這麼進步,這可能就是增進國際視野吧!!~~
