I’m so glad that I made the right decision choosing TIEP. First of all, I found there enthusiastic and excellent teachers, who have a lot of experience. In addition to their support in class, I could learn a lot by frequenting the skills center and the computer lab, and also by joining a conversation club group. And my TOEFL score. Wow, I couldn’t believe it. After one semester in level 138 and half a semester in 158, my TOEFL score was 633! I’m positive that TIEP is one of the BEST schools for ESL in America! Second of all, TIEP is located within walking distance of the University of Texas and its facilities, student dormitories and public transportation, which made things easier to me to enjoy life in Austin. Finally, I feel glad to have met there such nice people from different countries and made a lot of friends.
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.

I know now that my English is good, and I improved it a lot. I advise all other students who want to improve their English to come to TIEP because it is very exciting. It's very interesting because you find many nationalities and can add to your general culture.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Who knows the name of the person who said it? It’s Lao Tzu, a very famous Chinese philosopher. This proverb is very important to me not because I can trace it back to my own first steps, but because I can remember the great times we had while I was taking these steps.

Before I came to TIEP, I hadn't studied at an English school. In my memory Austin is a wonderful place. I am glad to come here and happy to meet all of my friends in TIEP.

Thank you very much for these great memories and for teaching me that in spite of the troubles, I can find people like you with whom I can sing, Don’t worry, Be happy. From the heart Thank you TIEP for teaching me that the knowledge is also beyond the school.

The teachers and advisers here have a wealth of experience and were able to help me with every single problem I had... It was surely their kind of highly praised words that helped me get into many good universities.
