Country: Japan

Program of Study: Biology
Activities/Hobbies: Watching movies, shopping, hang out with my friends
Why did you choose the ELP: I already know this place, and I wanted to come back. Kansas is perfect place for study and improve English skill.
Did you like the ELP: I loved it. All of instructors and assistants are nice and friendly to everyone, even I'm done with ELP. I also think that the quality of instructors is excellent include teaching style, details of classes, and level of their English. Since most of them have an experience of teaching outside of ELP (as I know...), they know how to teach and can easily get students' attentions. Additionally, they provide good support both inside and outside of ELP, which helped me a lot!! I swear that K-state ELP is marvelous!!!!

Country: Japan

Program of Study: English Education

Activities/Hobbies: Swimming, Japanese Student Association

Why did you choose the ELP: “First, I went to San Francisco and studied English for two months, but it was too big. There were many Japanese there and most people were nice, but not so nice. A teacher said Midwest people are really nice and there is less Japanese. I then applied to many English programs, but I chose the ELP because it was the nicest and the fastest. I really like K-State and have applied to the graduate program for Education so I can teach English in Japan.”
