      Great School!
      The ELI staff was very kind. Whenever I drop by the ELI office, they were always very pleasant. I don't have any complaints about my stay at the school. I strongly strongly recommend studying at George Mason University if you want to improve your English.

      Awesome Campus!
      I studied for one year in 2006 at George Mason University. I took the ELI program (started from High-intermediate to Advanced level) and lived at the dormitory for 3 months. I had no family and friends when I arrived in the United States, but the kind faculty, teachers and friends helped me a lot so I could adapt quickly. I appreciate all of them, and if I have another chance to study in the United states I will choose GMU again.

      Excellent instructors and staff to accommodate international students. Academic and social activities within the program and the university to learn English and US culture. Nice and convienient location in the DC area to make the most of culture and art.
      I had a homestay and it was a really good experience to know other international and US people.

      2011 spring semester in GMU
      我所上的Preparation for Graduate Study對於將來在美國就學很有幫助,老師也很nice. 這個地區離華府很近,要去玩也很方便。基本上我很滿意,也會推薦別人這間學校。

      GMU整體教育安排很好,指導老師都很認真教課,室內上課或室外教學安排得宜。校區環境很好,地方大,空氣好,圖書館為任何持有學生証的人皆可借書。有公車可搭至地鐵站,地鐵站可往DC。
      住宿方面,因主要為供正班學生住宿,比較簡易,對短期進修來說,還要購買所有用品,除了負擔比較大,也帶不回來。且要求需住一整學年。不過住在學校的宿舍一般會與正班大學生同房,對想英文進步快速的人會有幫助。
      若有機會會再想回去GMU進修,GMU是個好學校。

      캠퍼스를 누리고 싶으면 가라!
      먼저 미국 내 많은 학교부설 어학원 중에서
      조지메이슨 대학은 아이비리그를 제외하고 손에 뽑습니다.
      지역이나 학교(굉장히 발전하는 학교)를 볼 때 손색이 없습니다.
      그래서 워싱턴과의 접근성이나 캠퍼스를 사용하고 학교학생들과
      만날 수 있다는 점에서 추천할 수 있습니다.
      그러나 영어수업에 있어서는 호불호가 엇갈립니다. 굉장히 타이트한 수업이긴 하지만 짜임새나 커리큘럼이 높다고 할 수 는 없습니다.
      미국이기에 개인주의가 강해서 자기 스스로 하기 나름입니다.

      George Mason University
      학교 시설이나 제공되는 서비스, 숙박 시설 등을 고려해 볼 때 비싼 학비는 어느 정도 감수할 만하다고 생각합니다. 특히, 번잡한 대도시 중심가에서 떨어져 있어 여유로운 느낌을 가질 수 있으면서도 워싱턴 D.C.까지의 근접성 때문에 실상 대도시 안에 위치한 것과 다름 없는 생활 환경을 누릴 수 있어서 매우 좋습니다. 다양한 ELI 야외활동은 물론, GMU에서 제공하는 outgoing에도 자유롭게 참여할 수 있다는 장점이 있습니다.

      조지 메이슨
      조지 메이슨의 ESI는 전반적으로 수업의 질이나 교수진의 구성이 아주 좋다고 생각합니다. 게다가 일반 학생들과 동일한 혜택과 함께 어울릴 수 있는 기회가 많아서 좀 더 영어를 배울 수 있는 기회가 많이 있습니다. 커리큘럼이 상당히 치밀하게 짜여져 있으며 정확한 레벨의 수업을 위한 제도들도 잘 만들어져 있습니다. 지역 자체가 아주 좋은 환경을 가지고 있는 도시이고 특별히 한국 사람들이 살기에 좋은 곳이기에 추천할만한 대학이라고 생각합니다.
