      I Made a New Family Here
      The best thing about the ESL Academy is that this school taught me not only a second language. This school has taught me the meaning of learning. I learned to respect, to live and overcome difficulties away from my home, my friends and my family. However, I am so lucky because I made a new family here and I will take it with me wherever I go.

      Be a Great Student at the University Level
      Nelson Mandela said “education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world,” with that being said I must add the best thing about ESL academy is its staff. Amazing people are the main reason why ESL is so great. Each person from the specialists to the coordinators are dedicated and committed to their work, I dare to say for them is more than a job it is a calling to help people, that is why learning and developing at the ESL academy is so simple and satisfying. At the end of the road you will have learned the skills you need to be a great student at university level but also you will have created bonds of friendship and affection with remarkable people.

      Learn Different Cultures, Behaviors, and Language
      ESL academy is unlike other language schools I have attended. This school is a good place to learn different cultures, behaviors, and language. I make many new friends during these 2 months. The courses at this ESL Academy are different because they use “content-based” in their teaching. This method enhances and motivates me to learn in the way that I like. My time at ESL Academy is worth it.
