      about Pace

      地點很棒,一出學校就有地鐵站,而且隔壁就是Brooklyn Bridge,financial district和south street seaport也都在附近,走路到world trade center只要10分鐘,在那邊可以搭另一班地鐵,也可以坐path train到NJ,總之真的很方便。

      我是07年9月到Pace ELI上課的,念的是pre-graduate的課程。上了一個兩個terms(一個學期),度過了幾個月好玩的日子,不過,跟在其他外面的語言中心或是其他學校ELI,ESL的同學相比,我在Pace的課程明顯的重很多。重= 好,因為,課業重才會學的多!藉著做project的機會,跟同學小組meeting的機會,都讓我們的口語及寫作上有明顯的進步。裡面有位Andrew老師,非常注重發音,要求我們上台報告要錄影,還要寫review,這樣才會知道自己發音哪裡有問題,我覺得這個方法幫助我很大!希望我的意見能夠幫助到想要到Pace ELI的學生!

      특히 MBA를 준비하고 계시는 분들!
      제가 있었던 Pace University의 ELI 코스는 상당히 체계적인 수업이 많았습니다. 가장 마음에 들었던 것은, 다양한 수업도 수업이지만, 정해진 시간표가 주어지지 않고 대학 강의를 수강 신청하듯 자신이 원하는 과목만을 직접 신청할 수 있다는 점이었습니다.
      처음 들어갔을 때 level 4를 배정 받았는데요, 이 등급에 속해있는 과목들에는 일반적인 reading이나 listening 수업 뿐만 아니라 TOEFL 시험을 준비하는 수업도 있었고, 평소에도 쓰일법한 idiom을 전문으로 가르쳐주는 수업도 있어서 이를 통해 일상영어를 좀더 접할 수 있었습니다. 무엇보다 가장 좋았던 수업은 American Business Culture과 Case Studies로 연결되는 비즈니스 수업이었는데요, 미국에서의 비즈니스 환경이나 실제로 행해지는 여러 협상 노하우를 배울 수 있어서, 한국에서 경영학부를 전공하던 저에게 가장 흥미있는 수업이 되었습니다. :)
      또한 Pace University는 특히 MBA 대학원으로 유명해서 여러 많은 ELI 학생들 중에는 Pace의 MBA 입학을 목표로 하고 오는 경우가 많았습니다. 그래서 그들을 위해 따로 Pre-graduate 코스를 마련해서 원하는 사람이 들을 수 있도록 했습니다.
      그뿐만 아니라 대학 부설이었기 때문에 그밖의 대학시설들을 사용할 수 있었고, 조금이나마 같은 학생들의 생활을 함께 체험할 수 있었습니다. :D
