“Everything here is wonderful and memorable. The most apparent benefit is the improvement of my English skills. With help from our literature and critical thinking courses, I am able to use appropriate words and clear structures to write concise essays, and I can speak English more fluently with less mistakes. Academically I have learned how to take useful notes, analyze texts and organize group cooperation.”
– Felix, student
“The staff, both western and Chinese, are very professional and supportive. The campus is new and modern, with smart boards and Wi-Fi. I find the students very hard working and respectful. One of the positive things about our program is the focus on promoting critical thinking skills. I have seen students go from passive listeners to active leaders in classroom discussions.”
