      Studying at Hunter College
      I was an IELI student of Hunter College and I attended the evening classes which were completely different from the classes held in the daytime during the semester. Most of my classmates came from Europe and Latin America and only a few students came from Asia. Most of my classmates did not have problems conversing in English. Even though they had accents, they still could speak English very fluently. Hunter College is a very good environment to improve your English skills, especially speaking and listening. Also, my teachers in reading and writing classes were very good. They inspired me to think more and describe ideas in my own words when I was studying. I used to receive information from teachers when I was a student in Taiwan, but I had to continually express my opinions during my study in the USA which was great practice. It was a culture shock to me. If you can get used to the particular learning atmosphere in New York, you will totally enjoy your studies in America.

      Open the Window to See the World
      I am an architecture designer. After working more then ten years in Taiwan, I really wanted to improve my professional skills and vision. Learning English is a way to enlarge my vision I think. Studying in Hunter College was one of the most fantastic periods in my life. Now I feel I have had a different view to observe many things. I also took advantage of living in New York City to explore many museums and resorts. Most of the teachers in Hunter College are considerate, professional, and funny. I appreciate I had the opportunity studying in Hunter.

      在Hunter 的點點滴滴
      英文進步很快,但每個人的感覺不同。
      Hunter是個注重writing的學校,可以幫助以後想在美國就學的學生打基礎。在口語方面的輔導比較弱。
      但我在Hunter認識了很多韓國學生,中國人是很少,台灣也算少,一年裡我只認識了三位台灣學生那學英文。

      ハンターカレッジESLについて
      私は2006年からの留学中、ハンターカレッジESLのアカデミック・コースに2セメスター、その後ブルックリン・カレッジESLの同コースに3セメスター出席しました。私はハンターカレッジのアカデミック・コースを特におすすめします。先生にもよりますが、やる気のある先生は本当に質の良いクラスを提供してくれます。文法のクラスは、シーラ先生が素晴らしいです。特に時制やそれ以上のレベルの文法はとてもわかりやすく、生徒からの質問にも根気づよく答えてくれます。ライティング/リーディングのクラスは、ベロニカ先生が素晴らしかったです。クラスの内容はとてもチャレンジングで、宿題に1日2、3時間は費やす内容ですが、クラス修了後は、TOEFLに自信を持って挑めますし、クラスへの参加を通して会話力/会話する自信も上がります。ハンターカレッジはクラス外での課外活動は特になかったと思いますが、クラスメートの大半が大学進学を貪欲に目指す人達なので、その人たちと図書館に行って宿題をしたり、セントラルパークで寄り道したりと、周りの環境が良いため、とても充実した学校生活が楽しめると思います。ただし、本当に勉強しようとすると、なかなか遊ぶ時間はありませんが、短期間だけでも集中したたけの見返りはあるクラス内容です。ハンターカレッジで学んだ内容で基礎力がぐんと上がり、ブルックリンカレッジでとったTOEFL ITP対応クラスで繰り返し例題を解くことで、TOEFL実践力を得たと言えます。
