"Today is my last day at Cal America Education Institute. I have been studying at Cal America for about a year and a half. It’s been a wonderful time for me and I really enjoyed my studies because of the positive atmosphere, experienced teachers and sociable students. I have met peers and colleagues from many countries while being here, and I’m extremely happy I became real friends with so many of them.
