When I first stepped into the doors of the American Institute for English Proficiency, I felt nervous.  It was even more nerve-wracking when I saw that I would have classmates who are foreigners.  After a week or two,  AIEP, I must say, has become my second home.  I am so comfortable there now.  It’s where I learned a lot of things from writing to speaking, from thinking critically and debating.  This institute has not only taught me how to speak English better, but also values in life that I will be able to use in my lifetime.  After a couple of months of studying here, I could not imagine life without AIEP. The specialists will not just teach you English, but will also inspire and motivate you to do more.  And now, I am ready to face the world to apply and share the knowledge and values AIEP taught me.  Even if I have already completed my course, I sometimes give the institute a visit to say hello to the new students, of course, to my former specialists.
