"Before attending the IEC program, I had no confidence in English, but the teachers here helped and encouraged me. They have a lot of teaching experience and they work hard to make the lessons interesting and useful. Our classes were small and we were given personal attention, which helped us improve our spoken and communication skills quickly. Moreover, it is interesting to study with classmates from all over the world."

"My English has improved a lot thanks to the professors' patience in helping me learn. If I need help after class I know that I can go to them at any time. We have interesting discussions about international news around the world as part of practicing our English. There are a lot of activities for me to choose from after classes. In fact, I just started helping teach a salsa dancing class."

"I like it here because I have met many different kinds of people and have good conversations with them. After class I enjoy spending time with my classmates in the UE café playing pool. This also helps me practice speaking English because my friends are Chinese, American, and Arabian. The teaching is very good because the professor helps me by giving me individual attention in class. I am proud to be a UE student."

"The IEC teachers and classmates at UE are incredibly supportive, and I always feel comfortable..."
