Sultan Al-Hayyani, Saudi Arabia

“About one year ago, I came to the U.S. to study English and get my masters. My English listening and speaking ability wasn’t that good, but with the well trained teachers and staff in English Studies Institute, my English has improved a lot. If someone asked me an advice about a good school to study in, I would definitely say go to ESI.”
