"Coming to ELI at the U of U to improve my English skills was one of the best decisions I have taken. It was a wonderful experience, through which I was not only involved in American culture and lifestyle, but also met people from around the world, who I have remained friends with beyond the program time. I'm so grateful for all. I succeeded in my TOEFL test, and have just started my Master's degree. Moving Forward!"
