Gualter, Angola

“I came to the United States from Angola straight to CIES. Immediately CIES became my home and family. CIES was a place of challenge, encouragement, and rest for me during my year of learning English there. I was constantly encouraged to do and be the best that I could be and to never lose hope and sight of what I came to the United States to accomplish.”

Ileana, Colombia

"Studying at CIES was my best life experience. I improved my English skills with very well prepared teachers, and a smart method of teaching English. The kindness and human warmth in administrative staff was unbeatable. I spent good times with nice new people from many countries around the world. That was my second family in the US and will be in my heart forever."
