I have been here for two months and have been living with an American family for one month. They are so wonderful. They have taken me sailing on Lake Austin and have taken me to a Willie Nelson concert. I enjoyed these Austin activities very much. Before I came here I hadn’t studied English since graduating from junior college, but now I study and practice English all the time. In Okinawa we had a chance to talk with American people, but I have never talked in English with people from other countries. I had been dreaming about going to the United States since junior high school. Now my dream has come true. English is a valuable language for me to make friends from all over the world and to live my life fully.
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.

TIEP gave me several wonderful experiences, understanding, skills, judgment, practice, anecdotes, that I will remember all my life... TIEP helped me to discover my potential... After my time at TIEP, I am stronger and confident to continue my goals.

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.

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.
