Why did you decide to study in the USA?
Because I want to learn English at the same time I’m getting a degree and because school here is better than in Ecuador.
Why did you choose the American Language and Culture Institute (ALCI) at California State University, Chico?
I chose this program because my aunt lives close to Chico and because I need to improve my English to take classes to Butte College.
What do you like best?
The education is better because the teacher is more approachable.

I went to Six Flag and Sierra Nevada as a part of the English program.

It is easy.
