To visit America, especially Texas, had been my big dream sincemy childhood and I had heard that Austin is one of the most beautiful and comfortable cities in the United States. Seeing is believing. Austin is so nice that I really wanted to live there. I was lucky that I chose TIEP. It was really joyful days for me to study English for about four months. You taught us living English not only energetically but also interestingly. I was able to know pleasure to communicate in English. Thank you very much. I wish I could have studied at TIEP much longer. I believe that what I learned and experienced while I was in Austin will be energy in my future life.
I lacked the ability to communicate well in English, so I came here to study at TIEP... Now I’m getting ready to go back to my home country where I will finish my university degree... I’m planning to come back to a graduate school here in the United States to study microbiology.

If you are an international student who wants to study in an American university, I suggest you to come to study at TIEP. You can lay a solid foundation in English and make a lot of friends from different parts of the world.

...at TIEP I could get self confidence. Of course, I still make mistakes, but I'm not afraid anymore. I learned "Don't be shy."

Now, today, I have achieved all three [of my] dreams. I have finished Level 160A and Level 160B with an “A” each time. I am the speaker at this ceremony, and I was accepted for a master’s degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences at Quinnipiac University in Connecticut which I’m starting next month.

Studying at TIEP is very interesting for several reasons... The teachers are well prepared; they have a lot of experience, and they are always ready to deal with different kinds of students.

The teachers at TIEP, all of them, are excellent. One of the most important things I have learned at TIEP is to speak without being afraid. I have also learned to be consistent in my studies and to ask a lot of questions.

Thank you for every single minute, thank you for every smile, every word, every lesson, every answer. Thank you for bringing me here, for giving me the opportunity to be better, to have more options, to be exceptional.

So far my biggest achievement as a result of my involvement and dedication in TIEP, has being the acceptance at The University of Texas at San Antonio, to start my undergraduate program in Architecture in September 2013.

You upgraded our command of English. However, we all learned more than that. You gave us a special present, the unforgettable and invaluable memories.
