I’m from Honduras in Central America. I was a student at the Texas Intensive English Program in the business program. This was a great opportunity for me to meet people in the business field from around the world and Austin. I learned cultural aspects of doing business around the world as well as in the United States. In Austin I could meet friendly native American speakers of English. Austin is a safe city that you can walk around at most hours. The landscape of Austin is very green and the parks are found everywhere. I am hoping to come back to Austin to continue my studies.
I was a TIEP student in the Fall '93 and Spring of '94. I barely spoke any English when I started the program. But by the time I left TIEP I was well prepared to attend college (Economics and MBA) and pursue my successful professional career.

I have much chance to speak and use English which I learned at TIEP. I am really happy with my job. It's so challenging and wonderful. I think my experience at TIEP was really good. I appreciate my teachers and classmates. Thank you so much!
-Asumi Hiroki, Japan
The teachers are wonderful, kind, and helpful. Before my English class I couldn't understand English very well. Now I'm improving my English every day. I can go out without fear.

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.

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.

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 time I spent at TIEP has made me a better organized person both professionally and personally. I have enjoyed getting to make new friends from around the world and learning more about other cultures.

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.
-Chia-Chen Kang, Taiwan
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!
-Lucila Barbosa, Brazil
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.
