The best English program I went to.

When I first came to AECP. Everything seemed so good. It was a great opprutunity for me to study here. I learned a lot throughout the 4 months I spent there. It helped me a lot to get addmitted into ASU undergraduate program. The teachers were so helpful and the staff was great. Phoenix has become my second home since I came to the United States, and I really enjoy being part of this.

A great learning experience

This was a great opportunity for me. I really enjoyed being in this program. In addition to learning and improving my English, I was able to choose from different electives that helped me start my college career. There was many things to do other than study, and the people were friendly and kind. Phoenix is a great city and if I had to start again I will definitely come to the AECP and choose this excellent program.

A great experience

This English Program was very good for me. It helped me develop the skills I needed to be able to speak, write and read advanced English. The thing I liked the most was being exposed to a different culture, and having the ability to meet people from different places. The staff made sure that the value paid was worth it, and I feel that without this program my English would have never improved.

Just a great time in my life

The AECP is a great course, recognized as one of the best language courses all over the US. Classes are useful (they have focus in "practical stuff"), and activities make people practice the language, as well as to make friends and know nice places. I am grateful for all the help to my English that they provide.

Arizona--AECP experience

Of course, AECP is a good choose! and the weather is very special! Personally, each session is like a (DNA) gene chain. The professor will teach you some skills again and again until you can use these skills very well, but different professors use different way and each session will be more and more academic.This is very important if you want to study in American University. Each session you can meet the different counties' classmates.
