      短期留學得好地方
      我覺得那一間真的很棒!!!!
      這是我第一次去,留下給我很棒很棒的回憶。老師是真的很認真教學,然後不只學到東西,也在這邊教到了很多朋友,我覺得我的人生在這邊開始有了不一樣的思考點。回到台灣之後,我更成長了一次。
      建議大家暑假想遊學得話這裡是個很適合的地方,聖地牙哥本身就是一個很好的旅遊地點了,課餘之外跑出去玩也是個很棒的經驗。

      SDSU兩個月的自助旅行之感想與意見
      我於大三升大四的暑徦,決定去美國自助旅行,但當時英文很差且又不願意多花錢請代辦中心的情形下,我在網路上發現ApplyESL網站,並透過它,完成了遊學的每一項申請手續,當時同學都嚇一跳,都覺得我英文這麼爛,怎麼可能自己會辦得成功。雖然透過網路,有點覺得怕怕的,但是到了美國,每一項的手續跟步驟,都讓我在美國旅行時,無往不利。感想:我預計1年後會再出國旅行一次,也會使用ApplyESL網站,希望該網站裡,能提供更多該地區的地圖、交通圖、美食、觀光等

      語学留学から大学進学
      私はサンディエゴ州立大学(SDSU)付属の語学学校に1期通い、その後サンディエゴのコミュニティカレッジに2年、さらにカリフォルニア州立大学のLong Beach校に進学し、今年の8月に卒業します。当初は語学留学だけのつもりでアメリカにきました。しかし、SDSUの語学学校の生徒たちはみんな学ぶことにとても意欲的で、大学進学はもちろん、MBAを目指している人たちも多くいました。先生方も進学に向けての指導や、TOEFLのための授業もたくさんあり、そんな学生たち、先生方の影響で、大学進学を目指すようになりました。私の経験上語学学校選びは大学付属の学校を推薦します。
