Student Profiles


“I am Sualiman Aldrees, a student at ELS Grand Forks of four months. When I first arrived I felt pleasant, I like this town so far. I don't spend a lot of money here, so I can save money to travel all around the USA. I love residents from the town; they are all so friendly and I always see them with beautiful smiles on their faces. I believe that I could stay here for five years and not be bored.”



“I am studying at ELS because I need to perfect my level of English. I have had such a good experience here and I have made very good friends. ELS also provides students with a great group of teachers and administrators. Not only are they good at their jobs, but also friendly. I am comfortable in my classes and at the center.”


“First of all, I came to Grand Forks because of my job. My job sent me to ELS Grand Forks. They told me the best university to study Aviation Management is the University of North Dakota. In the summer, there are many activities you can do. Now I like Grand Forks because I made new friends and I like all the teachers. The teachers are very friendly, funny, very helpful, and respectful.”


“Hey, I'm Musleh from Saudi Arabia. ELS in Johnson City has good teachers. They are helpful if you don't understand something. Also, ELS has many activities every weekend such as barbecue, trips, and hiking. Then you can have a lot of fun during the weekend. ELS located in East Tennessee State University that has a big library, and nice gym and many fields to play soccer and tennis. In Addition, Johnson City is small and quiet city. So you can find inexpensive apartments. Moreover, Johnson City has beautiful and natural views because it is located in mountains. I like ELS and Johnson City and I'm lucky man because I came here.”
