“Georgia Southern University is one of the greatest schools and located in a peaceful place. English has been hard and challenging for me. So, I especially wanted to learn English. I didn’t have much confidence to speak with American people when I came to the U.S. for the first time. So I thought I needed to improve my English skills more and more.
Some people feel shy and hesitate when they try to speak English. Actually, I was too in the beginning. But, you don’t feel like that in the ELP. All teachers and all classmates are friendly and help you. They know you want to learn and study at the University. You don’t have to feel shy anymore in the ELP. After this program, you will gain a lot of confidence in English.
I really loved the U.S Culture and Writing class in ELP. In the U.S. Culture class, you can experience a lot of activities such as a picnic, meeting new American friends, and visiting a great place. Also, I like to take a writing class. The class is not boring and it was helpful for my English skills. Usually, when you write an essay, you can organize your thinking and learn what your grammar mistakes are with the teacher’s help. When I was in the ELP, I learned about how to write an essay for college and how college classes progress regularly from the ELP class.
Now as a university student, college classes are various and interesting. The ELP was really helpful for me.”
