AECP is a intensive program that offer many things to learn,you can developt some skill in listening and speaking, in grammar, reading and writing also you can choice some classes related with you major. I think it is so helpful. Helps how to improve your English language. The teachers are so helpful and knowledgeable, they help a lot.There are many activities that you can enjoy with the foreign students, even with native speakers, they help how can you improve and getting enroll in the language. At the beginning you feel you scare because you are starting to speak English, so you have to do everything in English but once you get in roll in the language nobody is going to stop you. I t was a good experience and if i had the opportunity to do it all over again I will do it without hesitation. If I did it you can do it.

AECP Review

AECP is an Intensive English Language program that have helped me to improve my English language abilities. Before I came here, i felt that is impossible to communicate and express my ideas to english speakers. But now, i am more comfortable in english and this self confidence encourage me to study on my master degree. Also i can get job interviews with companies for full-time jobs. AECP offers core classes, such as academic writing, reading, listening and speaking, and elective classes in six different level in order to improve all student's language level and all these classes covers many usefull and contemporary topics to help students. Thank you AECP for helping to build my future.

It has been 7 years since I've attended AECP program. To be honest with you, I wasn't expecting more than improving my language skills especially my grammar however, the program just boosted my life. After I've attended the program, my fluency has increased noticeably and I was very confident to talk to people. More so, I happened to encourage myself to get interviews with companies for their internship or full-time positions.

Besides, our teachers were so kind and open minded about bothering them all the time. No matter how important (!) my question or concern was, they were there to help.
Social activities were also lots of fun. I had a chance to go to Grand Canyon with them and socializing with people coming from various different countries is just priceless. I realize how little I knew about the world as I happen to talk to people from China, Brazil or Italy.

When I was in my home country I always dreamed of attending one of the best universities in the world and as a current student of ASU, I can't thank enough to AECP for assistance to realize that dream with confidence and proud.

I'd say much more things about the program but I'd rather give you an opportunity to explore on your own as well.
Thank you AECP for changing my life.

AECP Review

Well, I think aecp is perfect for every student coming from anywhere around the world. As an abroad student I really recommend ASU for studying. But I have one thing that I dont like, which is the classes being so far from each other class.. Something else happened to me recently about my finance issues. When i paid for my first course i payed a bit extra so they said you will get a refund within 20-21 days, so i waited and nothing came I talked to the aecp staff and they said they took the money to pay for the new course and late fee charges.. I didnt really like that.. I mean if they wanted the money I will pay for it but not with the money that they wanted to refund.. Regardless of the flaws everything is perfect.
