Students are encouraged to make their housing arrangements before they arrive and as early as possible due to the limited amount of space available.

      Studying at UIC
      If you want to improve your English speaking skills, you must come to UIC. We spoke every day in discussions groups. You will be able to talk to people from many different countries. The teaching style is interesting which encouraged me to go to school every day. Every tutorium teacher is happy to help you with everything.
      You can also improve your reading and writing skills as well. UIC is a really nice school!

      About ESL Class in UIC
      I took classes during two semesters in UIC ESL course.
      The quality of class depended upon teachers, but all of my teachers were good to me. They gave me a lot of homework, but it was not bad for learning English. They tried to give me lots of feedback and inspiration for studying English. I heard that the UIC ESL course is the best in Chicago, and I totally agree with that.
      UIC is very close to downtown, so it's very convenient and the facilities at the school are good. There were several field trips. Through the field trip, I could make new friends and I could know good places in Chicago. For example I visited the Board of Trade in Chicago, one of the famous places, with schoolmates.
      The UIC dormitory for international students has a kitchen, so it's good and the dormitory is located on West campus and classes are on East campus, so a little bit far. But there is a school shuttle bus, so commuting is not bad.

      适当增加与本土学生的接触和交流
      希望在课外内容中适当增加与美国本土学生的交流与沟通,比如举办冷餐会、小型派对等。这样有利于提高学员的语言沟通能力。

      UIC還是很不錯的
      在UIC的語言中心學習,一開始分班制度分配的十分不錯,班上同學水準差異不大,所以教學上也比較能夠一起努力。但是如果希望在Reading&Writing方面有很大的進步,還是不要期望太高;但是對於Speaking&Listening方面想要有所突破,我認為語言學習中心給予的幫助很大。不僅僅在語言的流暢度有所提昇,也確切的點出許多讓我們英文不道地的學習盲點。
      至於住宿方面,我沒有住在學校過,所以不甚了解。但是學校附設的圖書館和健身房都很不錯^^

      UIC
      기숙사는 너무 비싸니까 따로 렌트 알아보시는게 좋구요.

      일단 수업의 질은 굉장히 아카데믹해요. 첨엔 좀 빡데사 싶을 정도로 숙제도 많지만 결국엔 다 나한테 도움되는 거니까요. 또 외국나오면 숙제 없이는 공부 안하게 되잖아요.

      오전에는 Reading$wrting 오후에는 Listening$Speaking 으로 이루어져있습니다.

      대학을 바라보는 사람들이 많아서 다들 열심히 해요. 읽기나 쓰기 능력에는 정말 도움이 많이 되는 과정입니다. 에쎄이 쓸때마다 일일히 첨삭 해줍니다.

      그런데 오후 Speaking 시간에는 별루 말을 많이 안시켜요.
      그냥 친구들끼리 조별로 대화하기나 선생님 혼자 엄청 말하시는데 왜냐하면 시켜야 할 과제가 되게 많거든요 선생입장에선.

      그냥 대화하는거에 집중하시고 싶으시거나 외국 친구들이랑 시카고를 구경하며 놀러 다니고 싶으시면 그냥 사설 어학원을 추천해드리지만요 정말 대학교 목표로 오시는 거면 TIE 정말 추천해요. 근데 다른 학교에 비해서 여기는 컨버세이션 파트너가 봄학기에만 있어요. 것도 공짜도 아닌 돈내야 하고요. 근데 과정은 진짜 좋아요. 끝나고 뷔페 세션 굿바이 파티도 하고요.

      다른 것을 떠나 교육 내용은 아주 우수합니다.
      특히 강사들이 전부 tesol 전공자로서 qulity가 높은 수업을 진행하고 있습니다.
      다만 건물이 낡았고 수업시간이 저녁 늦게 끝나는 경우도 있습니다.

      UIC 학교를 2학기를 마치며
      UIC 에서 2004년 여름과 가을 학기 동안 보냈습니다.
      그때의 경험은 지금도 잊을 수 없을 정도로 매우 기억에 남습니다.
      무엇보다도 영어 교육의 질은 매우 높다고 하겠습니다.
      영어를 잘할수 밖에 없을 정도의 교육 시스템은 저에게 매우 유익했습니다.
      다른 여타 학교보다 한차원 더 높은 질의 영어 교육을 받고 싶으시다면 UIC를 선택하라고 후배들에게 추천하고 싶습니다.

      대학입학 예정자를 위해 좋은 코스
      시설이나 환경은 수준 이상급이고 무엇보다 lab실을 편히 이용할 수 있었던것이 플러스 요인이였다고 본다. 거의 매주 주기적으로 내준 숙제들과 작문 숙제 등 또한 대학 입학 예정자나 그 이상급을 위한 사람들에게도 체계적으로 영어가 늘수 있는, 그런 좋은 코스라 생각 된다 . 프레젠테이션 기법도 배우고, 실제로 테스트로 응용된점 또한 높이 살만하다. 마지막으로 각 semester 방학때 현지 대학생, 대학원생들과 함께 봉사활동을 경험해볼 수 있는데, 이것은 신청자에 한해 면접을 통해 선발되지만, 선발된 후엔 정말 일주일에 걸쳐 알찬시간을 보낼 수 있다. 내겐 이런 프로그램에 참여할 수 있다는 자체에도 높은 점수를 주고 싶다.

      공부하기에는 정말 좋은 환경을 가지고 있습니다. 시카고의 특성상 느낌이 조용하고 학업에 집중할 수 있는 환경입니다. 또한 미국의 대도시 중에 하나로서 도시개발이 잘되어 있어서 도시관광을 하기에 적합합니다. 학교가 다운타운 근처에 위치하여 버스나 전철을 타고 몇분내에 다운타운에 도착할 수 있습니다. 학교 선생님들은 물론 친절하고 학생들에게 대화를 할 수 있는 여건을 많이 만들어 주려고 합니다. 특히, 대학진학을 앞두고 공부하시려면 적극 추천해 드리고 싶습니다.

      ややハード?
      受けるレベルにもよりますが、Reading/WritingのクラスはEssayの作成と毎日のReading Taskが大変でした。しかし、その分R/Wのスキルはかなり上達します。Speaking/ListeningはR/Wに比べれば内容は簡単ですが、プレゼンテーションなども課されるので、英語を話す度胸が鍛えられます。ニュースを聞き取る訓練もあり、とても効果的なListening練習でした。S/Lクラスでは文法の勉強もありますが、日本人には簡単なレベルだと思います。

      志を高く持ち続けること
      TOEFLを目指し、大学院に入りたいと思う方にはとてもよい教育だと思う。反面、大学在学中または大学を目指している学生にとっては、特にwriting, readingでは困難に感じると思う。なぜなら、米国では高校までに「米国的なwriting, reading」を徹底的に学習されていることと、日本とは文章の構築の仕方が異なるからである。宿題がほとんど毎日だされるが、これは翌日のクラスの理解を容易にすることである。また、listening, speakingクラスと連動したカリキュラムになっているため、遊びと宿題との時間配分ができるようにした方がよいと思う。教師陣は、「TOEFLでは・・・」ということをよく口にしていたが、高いレベルの教育を目指していると実感した。志が高い学生にとっては、志の高い教師と同じレベルとなり、とてもよい環境になるのではないかと思う。

      よい思い出になったシカゴ生活
      充実した勉強と国際交流が出来ました。満足した時間を過ごすことができ、とても良い思い出になっています。U.S.の大学に進学する学生が多いので真剣に勉強に打ち込むのを横で感じて、よい刺激になりました。私も自分なりの目標があったので、一生懸命に勉強しました。UICのESLは、真剣に英語を身につけたい人にお勧めです。宿題とテストが多く、多くの先生が生徒に対する勉強の評価は甘くなかったと思います。英語のどの部分を向上させたいかを明確にすればESLの中でそれにあった環境が作れるので、環境を作れば、後は目標に向かって楽しみながら勉強するといいと思います。
      一方で、他国から来た友達と授業がない時間を一緒に過ごし良い関係を作ることができました。Chicagoという素晴らしい土地を知りながら、友達が育った国についてや、考え、夢を知ることができ、視野が広くなったと思います。

      Riendo,compartiendo y aprendiendo
      Definitivamente una experiencia extraordinaria e inolvidable. Profesores comprometidos con la enseñanza y entregando todas las herramientas necesarias para el aprendizaje. Cualquier problema o necesidad , te ayudan de inmediato. El ambiente es lo mejor, finalmente terminas aprendiendo inglés compartiendo y riendo con los nuevos amigos en ru sala de clase y afuera, que por lo demás debo mencionar que Chicago es increíble.

      Aprender Ingles no solo es entender el idioma sino conocer la cultura
      El programa es muy bueno por la exigencia academica y por todas las actividades fuera del curso en la que se puede participar de manera gratuita que permiten practicar ingles y conocer de la cultura americana.
