      The ELI Course at UTA Was Wonderful!
      The ELI course helps students who are interested in entering universities in the US. I felt comfortable using English more than I expected after doing many of the class assignments such as writing essays. The other good thing was that the school is located on the UTA campus, so we could experience the atmosphere of real university life.

      Good place to learn English!
      ELI is a good place to improve your English. The teachers have great enthusiasm to answer each student's questions, so I learned a lot. I advise students who study at ELI to try and get a car when they are there or make friends that have a car so you can easily get around.

      텍사스를 마음껏 느낄수 있는 곳..알링턴!!!
      처음 학교를 정할때만해도 물가 등 저렴한 지역을 찾다가 알링턴 주립 대학을 정하게 되었습니다. 하지만 생활하면 정말 좋은 학교임을 느낄 수 있었습니다. 텍사스만의 느낌을 마음껏 누릴수 있는 곳....바로 UTA입니다. 여러분도 한번 떠나보세요..미국 어디까지 가봤니?

      UT Arlington ESL progrem.
      작년 봄학기때부터 2학기 정도를 이곳에서 공부했는데요,
      UTA ESL은 DFW지역에서 소문이 자자할 만큼 학교와 교수진, 교육 프로그램이 잘 되어 있는것으로 알려져 있습니다.
      우선 학교에 대한 첫인상은 깨끗하고 많지 않은 학생들 구성으로 학생들을 많이 받아 보았던것 같은 인상을 주었고,
      영어를 잘 모르는 학생들을 위해 오리엔테이션 날짜부터 학생들이 해야하는것등 스텝별로 차근차근 모든 친구들이 다 따라갈수 있도록 하는 교수진의 능력이 돋보였습니다.
      학교 수업은 등급 별로 나눠져 수준별 수업이 가능하고, 경우에따라 자신의 클레스를 높거나 혹은 낮게 조정할수도 있습니다.
      반 친구들이 자연스레 어울릴수 있는 대화나 조별 활동도 많이 갖고 있고, 야외행사나 파티등으로 많은 친구들과 쉽게 어울릴수 있었습니다. 어학을 위한 사람에게나, 미국에서의 새로운 출발을 위한 사람들에게는 좋은 선택인것 같습니다.

      UTA 가시고자 하시는 분 참고하세요^^
      전 작년 2월부터 10월까지 미국 텍사스에 있는 UTA에서 약 8개월간 어학연수를 하고 돌아왔어요.
      체계적인 프로그램과 친절한 선생님들로인해 많은 도움을 받은 것 같아요.
      약 20시간씩 매주 수업을 받게되고요, 매번 숙제와 그에 따르 피드백으로 자신의 취약점이 무엇인지 알게 된답니다. 또한 한 학기에도 3개 이상의 야외 활동이 있고요, 차가 없는 사람도 학교에서 버스를 대절해주기 때문에 얼마든지 나갈 수 있어요.
      전 세계에서 온 친구들을 사귈 수 있고, 자신의 영어 실력도 향상시킬 수 있는 좋은 곳인 것 같네요.
      단, 한가지 귀뜸을 드리자면, 이건 어느 학교나 마찬가지지만, 너무 학교에만 의조하시진 않기를 바랍니다. 학교 생활 이외에는 무료해지기 쉽거든요. UTA어학원에서 연결시켜주는 교외 활동에 참여하시거나 학생회에서 활동하시는 것도 친구들을 많이 사귈 수 있는 기회가 될 수 있겠죠. 그럼 모두 힘내세요~!^^
