      American Conversational English Course (ACE)
      I participated in the American Conversational English Course in the summer of 2008. This is what I would like to tell future students:
      - The campus is ok.
      - I didn't particularly like the Darnall-Henle residence. I would recommend off-campus accomodation instead.
      - I liked the quality of the teachers, but I didn't like the lessons as much as I expected.
      - The city and Georgetown are very good.
      - The environment of the campus is very good too.

      My impression was that the ACE course was different than I expected, but you will enjoy your time there because the experience is very interesting.

      Great program
      It was a great opportunity to learn English and get used to American culture.

      The courses were very well-organized,
      and teachers were so passionate.
      Field trips were great too.
      (Baltimore ball park, DC night tour,
      a play at Kennedy Center, etc.)

      Georgetown campus is a beautiful place,
      so I love there.

      But the dorm(I stayed at Harbin Hall)
      was not so satisfactory at that time.
      The view from my room (National Cathedral)
      was beautiful though.

      Overall, I enjoyed the ESL course at Georgetown
      and strongly recommend to attend!

      조지타운 EFL
      봄학기 4달, 여름학기 2달을 조지타운 EFL에서 보낸 학생으로서 조지타운 EFL프로그램은 정말 추천할만하다고 생각합니다.EFL은 세계 각지에서 오는 학생을 대상으로 영어를 외국어로서 교육하는 오랜 경험을 가지고 있습니다. 긴 역사에서 나오는 철저하고 효과적인 커리큘럼은 학생이 성실히 프로그램만 수행한다면 어느 수준이상의 퀄러티를 보장해줍니다. 박사학위를 가지고 있는 교수들도 있을 정도로 강사진도 뛰어납니다.

      GU awesome!
      GU!! 모두 만족합니다.:)
      선생님들도 친절하시고 수업도 수준별로 잘 나눠져있고, 여러가지 수업 외 활동을 통해 좋은 경험도 쌓고 질좋은 수업을 들을 수 있었습니다.
      다양한 프로그램으로 현지 경험을 쌓을 수 있도록 구성되어 있었고 포토맥강이 흐르는 낭만적인 캠퍼스에서 평생 잊지 못할 추억을 만들었습니다.
      학교 시설도 깨끗하고 편리하며 Gym도 사용할 수 있어서 좋습니다. 수영장도 있고 농구장도 있고 여러가지 다양한 fitness 프로그램도 수강할 수 있습니다.
      좋은학교인 만큼 한국인이 많이 있지만 수업시간에는 철저하게 관리가 되기 때문에 본인이 노력하시면 그만큼 더 얻을 수 있습니다.

      역사적으로 유례가 깊은 Georgetown University의 ESL class는 대만족!
      2004년 7월 여름방학 한달과정으로 Georgetown University의 ESL class를 참여하였습니다. 자신의 수준에 맞춰 class를 구분한 후 수준에 맞는 수업과 야외활동 및 기타 여러 activity들이 재미있고 흥미롭고 잘 짜여져 있었습니다.
      한국인들에게 인기가 많지만 한국인은 그렇게 많지도 않습니다. 또한 제가 이 학교를 지원하게 된 이유는 Georgetown University의 명성 뿐만 아니라 세계적인 도시이자 미국의 수도인 Washington D.C.의 역사적인 측면과 행정적인 측면을 동시에 경험할 수 있기 때문입니다.

      今まで受けたことのない高品質の授業
      レベル分けで、一番上のクラスに入りました。そのレベル分けテストも、客観式のTOEIC風と、教員一人、アシスタント教員一人対私一人の約10分のオーラルテストもありました。しっかり見分けようという誠意を感じました。その後何人かの繰り上げ組も参加、計14名ほどのクラスで、少々多すぎる人数となりました。クラスは10~12人程度が適正だったと思います。
      大学付属の語学学校だと体育館などの施設も使えますし、有益な時間でした。

      ALCプログラム
      1ヶ月のプログラムでしたが、充実した1ヶ月を過ごすことができました。午前と午後の3時間ずつの授業で、宿題もたくさんでるのでプログラム中は大変忙しくなります。けれど、授業外で大学バスケの観戦、バレエの観賞、DCナイトツアー、アイススケート、ほかのクラスの留学生とも交流できる1時間のコーヒータイムなど、たくさんの課外活動も用意してくれているので自分で興味をもてば授業以外でもワシントンDCを満喫できます。1カ月のプログラムは、寮に住むことができないので大学の紹介でホームステイをしましたが、とてもいいHost familyに出会え、そちらでもとてもよい経験ができました。

      Georgetown University EFLの感想
      私はGeorgetown Univ. EFLの2006 autumn semester(2006年8月下旬~12月中旬)を受講しました。GUには地球上のあらゆる国から生徒が集まっており、まずはクラスメイトの文化的多様性に驚かされます。また年齢層や職業も、高校を卒業したての学生から弁護士まで多岐に渡ります。
      英語指導のレベルも高く、リーディング、ライティングからプレゼンテーションに至るまで網羅的なカリキュラムが組まれています。またレギュラークラス以外に、政治や趣味など様々なテーマについて調査/ディスカッションする選択式の授業もあり、生徒の主体的・積極的な学習姿勢が磨かれます。
      キャンパスは、レンガ造りの荘厳な建物と多くの緑に溢れ、非常によい環境です。図書館、食堂、カフェも完備で言うことありません。
      クラスのレベルにもよると思いますが、どちらかというと硬派な雰囲気の学校です。本気で英語を学び、国際感覚を身に付けたいという方にオススメです。

      GUサマープログラムの特徴
      初日にクラス分けテストが行われ,私は上級クラス(文法の得意な東アジアの生徒が集まる)に配置された。このサマープログラムは,基本的には,語学力のアップというより,短期間のアメリカ生活を通じて,国際交流(特に若い学生同士の交流)や異文化体験(課外活動が充実していた)の機会が得られるという点に意義があると個人的に思う。

      英語に慣れるために
      充実した施設の中で、経験のある講師による英語を聞く・話す(discussionやpresentationなど)に重点を置いた授業や、昼休みを利用した発音や文法などのミニ講座で、英語の環境に慣れる良い足がかりになったと思う。3週間の夏期プログラムの前後で、特に苦手なリスニング・スピーキング力が劇的に向上したわけではなかったが、その後の英語の勉強に対するヒントは多数得られたと思う。

      留学を終えて
      海外生活の経験がなかったため、大学院への留学前に、少しでも英語の力を磨きたいと思いまして、ジョージタウン大学のESLコースを受講しました。主な特徴は、能力別クラスで自分のレベルにあった学習ができること、少人数性のクラスで教師やクラスメイトとの距離が近いこと、そしてキャンパス外での課外クラスも充実していることです。私が受講したのは3週間のコースでしたが、英語漬けの生活になるので、時間の限られた方でも、集中して効率的に学習することができます。

      授業はよく練られており完成度が高い。講師は他の語学学校とは明らかにレベルが違うプロフェッショナル。所属するクラスにもよるが、様々なトレーニング(課外インタビュー調査やディベート、プレゼンテーションなど)が用意されているので、英語でのコミュニケーション経験の幅を広げられる。宿題の山に埋もれることになるので、期間中は他の活動はほとんどできなくなるが、否応なしに英語漬けになるので、勉強としての密度は非常に濃い。クラスメートとは、同じ時間を過ごし、同じ苦労を経験する中で絆が生まれる。卒業後もメールのやりとりをしたり、帰国後に飲みに行ったりする(相手が日本人の場合)など、貴重な人間関係を得られる。授業外での企画も色々と用意されているが、途中から特定のメンバーに偏りがちになってくるので、楽しめる人と関心がなくなる人とで差が出てくる。ジョージタウン大学の校舎は、交通は少し不便だがとても美しく、雰囲気が良い。レストランの種類も豊富。全体として、とても充実した日々を送ることができ、受講して本当に良かったと思っている。今ではとても良い思い出であり、またいつか学校を訪れて、ノスタルジーに浸ってみたいと思っている。

      Una Experiencia Increible
      La Universidad de Georgetown tiene un nivel excelente de enseñanza, pero más allá de esto, lo que más te enriquece es conocer gente con ditintos pensamientos y experiencias con los que compartis todos los momentos, aún después de haber terminado el curso.
      Mi consejo es: no tengan miedo ni vergüenza y no se lo pierdan!

      Excelente Experiencia
      Nunca me hubiera imaginado todo lo que aprenderia al venir a estudiar en el EFL de Georgetown University. Definitivamente se lo recomiendo a todas las personas que esten interesadas en mejorar o aprender el ingles desde lo mas basico. El personal es excelente, con personas siempre disponibles para ayudar a los estudiantes y los profesores hacen que todos se sientan como una gran familia dentro del salon. Por ultimo, es impresionante todo lo que se aprende a parte del ingles. De todas las personas que conoci alli, aprendi muchas cosas sobre cultura, religion, comida, comportamiento, etc. Definitivamente una experiencia inolvidable.
