When I moved to Florida, I was insecure about my English and if I was going to have friends as I do in Brazil. However, when I started my journey with Intensive English Institute, all my insecurities went way because of the support and activities promoted by this incredible team. Therefore, because of overcoming many challenges, I was able to achieve many of my goals. More
I have started a course at Intensive English Institute at FAU because I would like to study Psychology there. The first thought of going abroad was a little bit scary but I had the possibility to start online! For now, I think it was the best solution because I develop my English skills every day. Also, I met a couple of professors and colleagues and it makes me feel that it is not scary anymore. Now I just want to be there as fast as possible, meet all these people in real life, and enjoy that I can develop my skills. More
I appreciate everything that I could learn in the IEI program. I took the courses during COVID-19 and I had to take online classes. However, the way that Intensive English Institute taught me English was exciting for me, and thanks to them I could better my English!More
