Students focus on the four key building blocks of language: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

基本上Highline那個區域,應該算是不很有趣的地方

沒有太多地方可以去,基本上到哪都要轉公車,以這點來說對讀書來說應該是好事

Highline有校園,學生餐廳等也有圖書館可利用。

Kaplan的課程,我個人覺得很不錯

主要是有文法,聽力,閱讀等,但寫作就比較很少

課程內容好很生活化,課堂上練習口語的機會很多,且注重在文法等等 

我覺得那裡的老師人都很好也很用心

我們每週一都會有考試,每天都有作業

口語方面比起以前真的好多了 

我感覺多跟朋友或老師聊天,英文口說會進步 

我剛來的時候,這裡大多是韓國人.日本人或是中國人 

對我來說認識別的國家得新朋友,又可以學習英文,是很棒的回憶!! :)

大学の夏休みを利用して短期で留学をしました。
最短2週間から受講が可能なコースなので、夏休みを使って短期で留学したかった私にとってぴったりだと思い学校を決めました。

授業は、1日4時間でセッションごとに午前、午後で授業が分かれているらしいのですが、
私は一番最短の2週間での留学だったのでずっと午前授業でした!
授業が午前中で終わるので、午後は宿題が出る日はまず宿題から終わらせてからクラスの友達と遊びに行っていました!
短期で来ている学生はほとんどが観光券留学の学生だったので、2週間の短い滞在でしたが、
その間に一緒に観光したのでとても仲良くなれました!

滞在中は、学生寮に住んでいました!
同じクラス以外の友達も出来るのでとてもお薦めです^^
