      ELI & OSU
      It s a good place to study because the teachers here push students to study and enjoy their life. I like the relaxing environment here.
      I just took one semester at OSU, and now I feel the improvement in my English. So I'll go on and achieve my goals here.

      The Best ELI in OSU!
      I want to suggest OSU because they have a complete educational system and good teachers. Also there are not too many students from Taiwan so you can totally improve your English pretty fast. The main campus in Stillwater is huge and pretty. They give students a lot of creative space to develop their learning. I had a good time and learned a lot of things from there, not only studying but also becoming more independent.

      esl을 참가할 경우 봄방학, 가을방학에 여행 한번씩 갑니다. 차가 없다면 불편하게 지내실 수 있습니다. 한국 사람은 200명 정도라고 되어있는데 그보다는 조금 더 많고 흑인보다 아시아인이 많은 전형적인 백인 남부 도시입니다. 도시는 스몰 타운이라 매우 조용한 도시 입니다.

      공부하기에 좋은 환경
      어학연수의 기본 목표는 영어능력향상이라고 생각합니다. 그런 면에서 볼때 OSU는 공부하기에 좋은 환경을 지녔습니다. 시골이라는 느낌이 좀 드는 지역인데요 사람들이 대부분이 친절하고 이야기하는 것을 좋아해서 말하기 연습을 하기에 좋은 조건을 가지고 있습니다. 숙박시설의 경우 기숙사가 기본이고 학교 아파트가 있어서 마음이 맞는 외국친구를 찾는다면 같이 살아볼수 있는 기회를 가질수 있습니다. 야외활동부분이 좀 미흡한데요 여름학기를 제외하고는 일주일간 여행이 있기는 하지만 그 활동이 전부라서 좀 아쉬운 면이 있습니다.

      Oklahoma state University ELI.
      1.수업:토플위주의 수업으로 구성이 되어있습니다. 또한 PBT책으로 수업시간에 토플 리스닝과 리딩 문법을 연습합니다.
      2.쇼핑몰이나 아울렛은 없기 때문에 학기 내에 쇼핑을 하시려면 1시간 30분 정도 걸리는 오클라호마시티나 털사로 가셔야 합니다. 분위기는 상당히 조용합니다.
      3.학교스태프:사실 ELI는 사람이 많은 어학원이 아니기 때문에 서류처리 같은 문제의 특별한 문제는 없습니다.
      4.야외활동: 이 곳은 공부하는 곳이다 라고 모두 말합니다. 왜냐하면 야외활동 할 것이 없기 때문입니다. 운동을 할 수는 있지만 쇼핑을 한다거나 어디를 놀러간다거나 하려고 하신다면 1시간 30분을 걸려서 시내로 나가야 합니다.
      5.숙박시설: 새로운 기숙사(를 지었습니다)에서 미국인들과 같이 살 수도 있기때문에 기숙사를 추천하고 싶습니다.
