Unfortunately my English class is finished and I feel sad because I’ll miss many things like new friends, teachers, and school. But I’m so happy because I learned many things: grammar, vocabulary, idioms, etc. I like this city and the people who live here. All these moments I’ll never forget!
“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.

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.

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 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.
-Myeongwon (Brighton) Kim, Korea
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.
-Makiko Ishikawa, Japan
I will not forget these last two semesters in TIEP. There were a lot of happy experiences as well as improving my English.
