I chose the College of Charleston ELI program because of their awesome reputation. My sister also lives in Charleston, so it was convenient to have family here.
What did you like best?
The best thing about the program were the instructors, their teaching methodology and the classmates! The instructors were great. I really enjoyed the students coming together from different countries and cultures to learn English together and appreciate our new friendships. I also loved learning about American history and culture.
Did you make friends in the program?
Yes, I met many wonderful friends from different cultures!
How is studying at the College of Charleston ELI program different from education in your own country?

Would you recommend the ELI program to a friend?
Absolutely! I would recommend the ELI program to a friend based on many factors: the improvement in my English writing and speaking, great instructors, College of Charleston’s awesome reputation, the student friendships that are built, and the sense of community you feel here.
