I want to say [that] there are excellent teachers, friends, classes and trips in the ESL program.  Teachers gave me opportunities for meeting Americans as well as the way of studying English. The ESL helps me improve my English ability through good classes. The ESL program will be an unforgettable experience to me.

ESL Institute Library

Rhab, Saudi Arabia

My experience in the UTC ESL program was the greatest experience I had in school. In the program, I found excellent teachers whom I felt comfortable with. The extraordinary program helped me to start speaking, reading and writing in a short time even though I wasn't able to do so at all before I entered the program. Easily, the ESL was my second home because I found a family out side my country.

I like ESL program because of two facts: first, the teachers are great and open minded. In class you can ask any questions you like and always, they are ready to help. Second, because of ESL I had the chance to have a train trip and visit the wonderful aquarium. I can say that UTC's ESL is a program where you can study and have fun!
