What we like in ELS La Verne was the friendliness of all who comprise it. La Verne is a quiet and safe city with friendly people. Teachers explain and give you examples to better understand. We learn more English, meet people from other countries, know the culture from other country, and the class are only in
English. Host family had many kindness even though we did not know English. What we like most were the classrooms, they are very equipped for a thoroughly enjoyable class. We will miss teachers who gave lessons, the English class, and our friends from other countries.

This is one of the best experiences I have ever had! Never have I been so happy in school. I really like the way the teachers give classes and also the infrastructure of the classrooms, it helps you a lot to be motivated while studying in ELS. La Verne is such a beautiful and quiet city, you can enjoy different kind of food, and you can do a lot of different activities in or around the city/campus. I always went to the conversation club and activities done by ELS like the trip to Olvera Street or Universal Studios. I think I took part in all activities in calendar, because these kind of activities are good to improve our English and also to meet new people and learn about different cultures. I learned new rules of grammar, I learned a lot of vocabulary and I improved my speaking at school. Living with an American family gave me the opportunity to improve my listening skills and speaking abilities too!

I enjoyed the teaching methodology used at ELS-Sioux Falls. Excellent teacher, very attentive to my needs and difficulties
helped me a lot in learning. I was very well received at the school and received much attention and support from the directors and other people on staff. I learned a lot about English, but also on the American and local culture. Also, Augustana University has many artistic activities and cultures to participate in if you want to have option of activities every day. All University facilities may be used by the ELS students, from the library to the pool. I met many people from different places and countries, new friends. I loved it! I intend to return soon!!!
