      UM Good Academic Help
      UM provides extremely good academic help to their students. Honestly, I learned a lot since I have been studying here. I like UM so much that I am applying for a graduate program in Business Administration. I strongly recommend the University of Miami if you want to really improve your English

      My Choice to Study in America
      Miami was my first choice to study in the United States, and my decision was a result of careful thinking, research, and study. There are many factors that make students enjoy the study here. First of all, the weather in Miami is moderate most times of the year. It doesn't snow and interrupt the life as it happens in some other cities. Second, Miami people are kind and helpful. In addition, Miami buildings have fantastic architectural style, and its streets are wide, clean and beautiful. It's also an international city; you will find different people from many countries that makes Miami more interesting. Finally, the most important factor is the availability of many universities led by the University of Miami, who is a pioneer university worldwide. It ranks high in the world's universities ranking. In addition, it has a gorgeous campus and provides excellent services to students. Certainly, its English Language Institute (IEP) has proven to have a high level of teaching English. And from my experience it is the right place for foreign students to master English language.

      IEP has many advantages
      I would like to contribute you my story with IEP. When I got my scholarship to study abroad, I was thinking about which is the best institution in the United States that would make my improve suddenly, so I started researching to find the greatest place to learn my English, so I decided to study there. Now I have been here almost one year, and really my English is improving, and I can speak very well. In addition, every teacher tries helping you as much as they can. The IEP has many advantages to develop your English such as courses, teachers, and tools of learning. I recommend anyone who wants to study English, come to the IEP.

      I am lucky to come to the IEP
      My name is Salah Saleh Alsharari. I am from Saudi Arabia. I had been studying in DC before I came to Miami, but I didn't improve a lot, so after 6 months, I took vacation and I came to Miami to see about the school, and have a fun time, and I found the UMIEP. After that, I visited UM, and I asked 5 people about the IPE. I didn't know them, but all of them told me the IEP is very good and you will improve fast. Now, I say "thank god, I am lucky to come to the IEP."

      Close to Home
      I choose the IEP because it was close to home. But after I came here, I’m really glad that I made the decision to come here. Because the teachers are all
      very welcoming; and I was able to make friends from all over the world. The class activities really help me to not only learn English, but also learn
      American culture. I was also able to practice English with native speakers through the conversation program. I really enjoyed my time here, and I will
      definitely recommend this program to my friends.

      Multicultural IEP
      I like the multicultural aspects of IEP. It’s a great experience to meet all the people from different countries. At first, I was very nervous because I didn’t
      know a lot of English. I was very shy, but all the teachers in IEP really encouraged me. Now I’m able to express myself in English. I also enjoyed all the
      activities in IEP, especially the International Thanksgiving. I was away from home. Participating in this event, and celebrate Thanksgiving with friends
      from all over the world made me feel like IEP is my home away from home.

      Miami has changed my life
      Studying in Miami has changed my life in ways that I cannot imagine. After studying here, I have made extremely important contacts. I believe that my
      classmates will become future engineers, doctors, politicians in their country. No matter where we end up in the future, we will always remember each
      other, and the time we have spent together at IEP. I believe that IEP is the first step for me to become a successful person. When I go to Saudi Arabia,
      France, China, Colombia, and all the other countries, I will have friends there. We can share ideas, do business, and more importantly, we can tie the
      relationship between our countries. I’m so happy that I chose the University of Miami, because day after day, I learned so much so my teachers. They are
      kind, patient, and they understand their students. And they are always there to help us.

      Activities at IEP
      IEP is a place where we can meet new people and learn about their cultures. We have fun activities such as the International Thanksgiving Celebration,
      Orlando trip, and the Halloween party. All the activities help us make new friends. The teachers in IEP are really friendly, and they are always eager to
      help us. I love the way I learn in IEP. The teachers make learning fun and easy for students.

      I enjoyed my time as an IEP student very much
      When I first came to the IEP, I felt nervous and strange, but all the teachers are very kind and patient. Gradually, I adapted to the environment here and
      feel very comfortable now. Aside from my hometown friends here, I made some friends from Saudi Arabia, Portugal, and Venezuela. I learned their culture
      and integrated with them. It’s definitely worth studying at IEP to gain this kind of experience. I also learned to work in groups, accept others suggestions
      and express my opinions. I’m sure this skill will help me in the University. These opportunities were significant to my experience in the United States. I
      participated in activities such as attending Miami Heat and Dolphins games and Special Olympics. Each brought significant meaning to my life in the
      United States. During my time at the IEP, I strengthened my English ability. The IEP teachers make classes fun and enjoyable. I enjoyed my time as an
      IEP student very much.
