      About The University of Iowa..
      I think the University of Iowa was so good for me to learn English. The people in Iowa were very very kind and I could relax there. I learned so many things like lifestyle, English and so on. And I made many friends from many countries. It was a really good experience to learn about the U.S.A. ^^
