Phunoi, Thailand

“I studied English at CIES for 4 sessions and I enjoyed my study there every single day. My academic English skill improved a lot and I also gained a different type of social awareness. CIES will not just teach you English but they will teach you how to be open minded and passionate for others through their class activities among international students. English is always fun at CIES and the people here are too nice to not miss.”

Fabrice, Burkina Faso

“CIES is an amazing place for learning English and embracing the American culture. Apart from that, CIES is also a good place to meet people from different parts of the world and an opportunity to build relationship. The teaching quality and all the hard work has helped me get a good TOEFL score and be able to get my admission at Tallahassee Community College.”
