Washington English Center: what do users think?


sebastien salcedo: I think it's a big deal. The teachers work for free, they have 3 employees who are in charge of hundreds of students. The online system is very deficient, almost at the end of the course the person in charge connected to explain how to use the code of the books????. Some teachers are very good others are not but as they work for free there is no option to do anything. In the zoom chat explain that we are at level 2, you have to use simple words, speak slowly and articulate the words......

Annie Prusky: Positive: Professionalism, ValueI have been a volunteer at WEC for several years; this is a truly community-oriented organization that provides excellent education with care.

Alejandro Rizo: It is a very good institute and I recommend it.

International Center For Language Studies: what do users think?


Teacher Jessie Foreign Language Instructor.: As a student and also as a former teacher I can say that ICLS exceed your expectations. Great resources, well trained and experienced teachers from different backgrounds. ICLS cares about their teachers and students. It was a wonderful experience not only to work there but also take some French lessons.

Olivia Hoffmann: Positive: ProfessionalismI loved my Spanish class at ICLS this fall. My instructor communicated well with our class. I learned conversational and professional skills. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking to further their language education!

Tatyana Ariyevich: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, QualityI took 2 tests with ICLS. The staff was professional yet friendly, and the testing process was well-organized. The instructions for both tests were clear and sent ahead of time. I received my test results in an hour. I would highly recommend ICLS for language testing.

Veronika Jerdetski: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI really enjoyed my French evening group class w Philippe! I gained a lot of knowledge about grammar & the class was heavily focused on improving students’ speaking ability. The value I got from my studies is certainly worth the (very reasonable) tuition. Thank you!

Hongying Jia: Don't take test through this company. I should read this review before I picked this company as my tester. I'm a native Mandarin speaker who was born in China and had schools from elementary through post graduate school. I have been teaching Mandarin in US for 10 years. I just took other two Mandarin tests from other organizations and get superior level in Mandarin. But the testers of this company, ICLS, gave me a randomly low score. Same thing, they won't review my test until I pay another $200.

Brigid O'Donnell: I took an evening foreign language here. Classes are engaging and teachers are knowledgeable. The curriculum is rigorous but manageable for busy people. 5/5 experience, would recommend.

Driss Bernoussi: I took the Spanish evening group class for beginners and it was an amazing experience. This is much different than learning a language in high school or college, which was much more boring for me. At ICLS, they get you speaking Spanish from the beginning, and its highly interactive style helps you become comfortable with your classmates. My teacher, Astrid, was fantastic. Our class became so close that by the end we went out for a dinner on our last class and practiced ordering in Spanish. I highly recommend to any language learner in the DC area that is looking to take a class after work. It meets twice a week so it is perfectly manageable for my busy schedule.
Response: Thank you, Driss! We are glad that you found our teaching methodology to be helpful to your learning process.

Brent Peabody: Great school. I can say for what they lack in number of courses offered they make up for with the quality of the instruction itself. I took 30 hours of intensive Portuguese, and the instructor (Nilzelaine) made personal Powerpoints tailored to me before each session. The only downside is that during summer they don't have enough students to host group classes for less-studied languages, so be sure to confirm with them if they're actually teaching a class even if it's listed on their website. The thing that mosts distinguishes ICLS is the quality of their instructors. Mine spoke English flawlessly (so understood some of the difficulties in learning Portuguese from an English perspective) and had a background in pedagogy. Also nice is the fact ICLS classrooms have amenities like computers and projectors... this may sound basic, but I when I took classes at the International Language Institute, there was nothing but a whiteboard in each classroom. This may sound nice but for the fact it's so much easier to convey information through a prepared Powerpoint than, say, writing each conjugation over and over again on a whiteboard.
Response: Thank you Brent! We are glad that you enjoyed your class with Nilzelaine!

Berkay DEMIRKAN: I have studied English (ESL) Program in ICLS for a year and half. It was a great experience. The instructors were really friendly and they cared about our learning progress a lot. It wasn't just a language school, it was a cultural experience.
Response: Thank you, Berkay! You are a great student. We are glad that you are using your English to achieve your professional goals.

Nataliya Alekseyenko: Do not use them for language testing. I was tested in Russian<>English and neither one of the two testers were native speakers unlike me. They gave me random scores indicating I do not have competence in my native language and when I asked to explain their grading criteria they said they wouldn't but I could pay them even more money for their graders to review my scores. I have been teaching foreign language at several universities for over 10 years and I am very disappointed in their assessment and lack of accountability.

Lloidy Guevara: So bad there is no 0 stars. I got an interview with the Director, I explained my needs in detailed, he sent a test and a registration form, which I completed. After waiting for a response for 2 weeks, I decided to call to see what was going on. Nobody knew what was going on, the Director never made notes, never got back to me and his personal had no idea who I was. After explaining again my goal to the person I was talking with, she told me that they may not have the right teacher for me. Very disorganize place that made me waste my time. If the head of the institution is this disorganized and careless, I just cannot imagine how the rest of the personal is. Do yourself a favor and find a more professional place to learn English This place is a joke

Andrea Alvarez: Great private school to learn English, excellent teachers, small classes. I recommend this place.

steellady zhang: very very good School, I have been this school for 2years, very nice teachers,and very nice school president- Mr.Pual!

Mentora College - Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Linh Truong: Mentora College is totally the best place in DC to study ESL. Tuition is better than other ESL schools in the area and during COVID, they provide student housing to students and even gave a discount so everyone can afford it and continue attending classes online from the dorm. The teachers and administration clearly care about their students, and they are attentive and really listen if there is any issues.

Alex Roset: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMentora College is highly recommended. Small classes, very affordable prices, several class schedules, excellent location half a block from a metro station, and upscale facilities. More importantly, a very qualified team of experienced English-speaker teachers.

Gjergj Dollani: Positive: Communication, ValueI like this school. The teachers are knowledgeable and they take their time to explain. If you look around you'll also find out that it's better value. You'll save money going to Mentora. Other ESL schools are more expensive.

C Hstreet: The students, the two supervisors, and fellow teachers are amazing. It is a diverse group of people. The three stars are for the these people. However, the lower review is due to the higher administration. The environment is toxic to work in and the chances for advancement are not present. Writing this review will probably result in a search to figure out who did it and result in punishment by the higher management. This is why it is being posted with an alternative username. People are worried about keeping their job and say "yes" to the higher administration. This has caused a lack of any change to occur to make the school better for the staff.

Pornpimon M.: I've been taking English classes at Mentora college for 5 months. I like this school so far, my English skills are getting better. It is not only you will get knowledge but also there are a lot of fun activities and a field trip which you can hang out with friends who are from many countries around the world and use daily conversation in English. All teachers are thoughtful and patient. As almost we know, learning a second language is not easy, but if we can the right place to learn. You will improve English. So, I’d love to recommend Mentora college.

Koray Bintas: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueGreat place to work and study! The school provides scholarships not only to its students, but also their employees so that they could continue their their professional development while working. Fantastic location in the heart of D.C!
Response: Thanks Koray!

Arya Kahramaner: Such an amazing experience that I had in Mentora College. The teachers were very sympathetic and helpful. they truly want the best for their students and always make an effort to satisfy our requisites. Mentora's location is also convenient and you can find bus and metro stations near the college. I genuinely recommend you this language school.

Mustafa Aktaş: If you think about studying ESL in DC, this school is the best option. They have modernized classrooms, the library and the computer lab are very convenient to spend time. They have ESL and American Experience classes which are giving you chance to choose the days you want to go to school. You also have different teacher every session. I had an amazing experience and really loved the location!

nutthaphat champasak: I used to study in Mentora college 3 months. In my opinion, this school is good but not all. i like teachers in this school because they are friendly and informally. On the other hand, i do not like the tuition process that you have to pay before you want to take vacation or transfer to other school.

Tiptunya Kampim: Mentora College is a good international school that I have learned in USA. There are a lot of fieldtrips and activities. I have many good teachers and cute friends. My best teacher that I have studied with is Mr. Brian Murphy. He always took care students and helped students when we had some problems of learning in the class. He taught very well and applied many games and activities that is easy to remeber the words in many lessons. He is active and creative. I met him in the first time of ESL class. He made me like learning English and start intending to study English. I love ESL class so much because I can know how to write good essay and how to speak or presentation in front of many people and we always practiced to learn English so I can use English in routines very well and this school is my best for me.

International Language Institute: what do users think?


keith o'connor: We went though Caribou for our refinancing and our experience was great thanks to Daniel Schoonmaker! He was very helpful and kept us updated on our status through email, text, and phone calls. If we had any questions he would get back to us fast with answers. He was awesome!

C D: I did not get the level of instruction I expected. While my instructor was a nice person, I expected the beginner class to build vocabulary and grammar, however we rapidly advanced beyond the basics. When discussing the class with a fellow student, he said he was having difficulty and he studied the same language in college. Ultimately, the final day of class came and only myself and another student showed up for the “final.” When I requested I discount to repeat the beginner course, I was told there are no refunds or discounts. I understand we are still working in Covid limitations and business isn’t quite what it was beforehand, but providing subpar instruction and effectively telling me to “deal with it”, is bad business. The instructor even told us the faculty told them to slow down, so they were aware it wasn’t proceeding effectively. I’ll be continuing my instruction with another provider.

Aurelia K: I've taken several Persian classes with ILI over the past 6 months and I recommend them. The Persian instructor is fantastic, as are the remote training capabilities. Classes start and end on time, and the time we do have is used to the fullest so I get my money's worth. I like that the class sizes are small enough that I get individual attention. I will say that you should be confident about the level you are signing up for - I find that some students will sign up for more advanced levels than they should, but that's not ILI's fault. Finally, the coordination is smooth and it's easy to contact Jane with issues or concerns. I'll be continuing to use ILI for my Persian learning in the future!

Monir Salim: I like the school very much. All of the teachers are very knowledgeable, friendly and cooperative. The educational environment for the international student is very positive. I miss my teachers. Jim & Jena are very good instructor for TOEFL preparation class. Bethany, Bonnie, Jennifer and Cloudia are also so good in the school management.

Fox World: Disclaimer: This is not my entire review. This is only part 1. I recently paid this organization $200 to take their Spanish proficiency exams(speaking,listening, reading, and writing). I have independently studied and spoken Spanish for almost 5 years now. I have taken 2 Spanish 1 courses. One for Freshman high school and the other for Freshman college. I received an A for both of these Courses. One of the stipulations to take the Spanish 1 course in college was to pass a Spanish Placement test and I scored off the charts. The highest class they had was Spanish 4 but the only class that was availible was Spanish 1 due to lack of enrollment. I already knew I was fluent in Spanish before I took this exam. I also speak multiple other languages, including French, Chinese, Egyptian Arabic, Japanese, Korean, Swahili, Yoruba, Seminole, Samoan, Hebrew, and Brazillian Porteguese. While none of them are as fluent as my Spanish, I am progressing towards this level of fluency and higher. I figured I would get the equivalent of at least a C1 on the CEFR scale for all of the tests I took. I was very unsatisfied with the results I received. I know for a fact that the results of my exams had been altered due to unjustified, ruthless, disgusting hatred, jealousy, and bias towards my Beautiful Rich Brown Skin, my Profundly Deep Rich Brown Eyes, my powerful royal Alkebulanian and Native American ancestery, my strong life giving, Woman gender, my Opulent Muslim Niqab, my genetic and aquired intelligence, my knowledge of other languages, my impeccable Spanish accent, my undeniable fluency, my flawless,coherent, and grammatically correct writing sample of my trip to Mexico, my desire to become an interpreter,my logical views on the worthlessness of make up, and my voluntary exit from formal schooling to pursue a 4 test GED rather than waste my precious time and intellect on 4 years of obeying rude, disrespectful unfrofessionals like the ones at ILI treating me as if I am less than then when I am more and will always be. Ever since I dropped out of highschool with a 4.33 GPA with Extra, Honors, and College credits, due to the utter lack of respect I had been receiving for years, I have been avoiding school settings. Every time I go back to one, I am reminded of why I left. Why I wake up every morning whenever I want to.Why I study what I love, not what I'm forced to. Why I live with and take care of the people that I love,not who I'm forced to sit in a classroom with. I am always so glad that I left the rat race when I did. Due to the inheret bussiness of my life, I wasn't actually planning on writing a review at first eventhough I knew she lied about my results. But when she had the audacity to send me an email in reference to my Spanish writing with a document attached to so called help me with my Spanish learning, I immeaditey decided that I had to write this review to combat the additonal blatant disrespect. I never even opened the document because I already know I need no such help conveying my thoughts in Spanish. She gave me the lowest level on Spanish writing when she knew I deserved a much higher level so she used the email and attachment to validate her lie. The only problem with my writing was a complete lack of accents, but I asked her before writing how to format the accents in Zoom and she said not to worry about them and that she'd imagine that they were there. It amuses me that she sent me an email after the fact pretending to provide resources for my supposedly poor Spanish writing skills when I was in the Zoom interview listening to her sigh loudly multiple times with an impatient look 4 minutes in to my paragraph. If you so called cared so much, then why did you sigh like I was wasting your time? That was extremely rude and highly unproffesional behavior for an instructor to exhibit in the presence of a student. This was in addition to disapproving and condescending looks and tones.

Faith Macpherson: The classes are the perfect amount of homework to class work for someone with a full time job and not too many hours to spare. The teacher is good at continuing to use the language when giving instructions and explanations, only swapping out to English when necessary. Only criticism is that I wish there could be a placement exam as levels differ greatly within a class and the guidelines aren't very helpful. Have enjoyed classes so far and would consider continuing to next levels.

Romain Devaux: I would not recommend Hindi classes. The teacher is really nice but is just not a teacher (and I am a language teacher, I can tell). No instructive approach, no teaching material but her book she followed to the letter. She kept distressing, reading chapters after chapters without taking the time to let us actually use the language. My advise - ask for a trial course to get to know the teacher before making any commitment to that school.

Leslie Shah: I really liked the International Language Institute (ILI). ILI has clear rules and expectations of teachers, staff, and students. There is a high degree of client customer service, respect and trust. ILI wants and works for student success. They offer and do as they so they do. Testing and Assessment are routine and part of progression.

Chaleeya Sri-intaranan: I had an appointment there to meet with the director name Fredrick! I really want to go to school but I have my visa situation (change of status) especially curently visa situation in the immigration is really bad and take so long. (But I have a Lawer on my side) Anyway, the way he looked at me and talked to me like I’m fresh from the boat!! And he said I’m just trying to get the visa just for staying in America !!! Not for studying!!!!!!!! I can’t believe that I heard that word from a school director!!! That’s unprofessional, but now I got acceptance from the other schools already. I definitely not recommend this school !! They should have talked to applicants better more polite and more Professional!!!
Response: I'm very sorry to hear that you feel like you were not treated fairly and professionally. That was certainly not my intention. As I explained to you when we had our meeting, your case is very complicated. Not only were you already here in the U.S. as an au-pair for two years, but you also have two B1/B2 visitor change of status applications pending for almost a full year. If you now file change of status application to be an F1 student you would have to file another B1/B2 extension application without even having a decision on your pending applications. I'm not an immigration attorney, but I'm not sure this is even possible. We have never had a case like this in my 16 years as director of ILI. As I also explained to you, if you want to be a student it would be a lot easier and quicker to travel back to your country and apply for the student visa from there. It is currently taking about one year to get a response on change of status applications. However, you stated you really wanted to stay here and wait another year to begin your studies if approved. I respectfully informed you that we are unfortunately not willing to accept your application due to the complicated nature of it, but you insisted that we should still help you. I wish you the best with your application and future plans of being a student in the U.S.

Sharon Borton: I've been at ILI for 2 years this summer and, have progressed quickly because the instructors are patient and non-judgmental, the classes are small (4-6) so there is a lot of individual attention and a great deal of expected participation and, the language is learned in every medium, i.e., conversational, reading and writing. And, finally, it is a lot of fun to learn another language and finally begin to feel confident about speaking another language. I highly recommend ILI.

Usman Khalid: This is the worst testing center for IELTS I have ever registered in my life. Please guys if you care about your money do not register for IELTS test in this center. You will definitely regret after paying your fee! These people only care about your money that's all. Even if this is the last option in the world I would say do not register for the test here. The staff is very rude and if you email them that you don’t want to take the test anymore because I don’t need it anymore, they will not refund you and only they care about money the fees 250$ fees you paid and they are the rudest staff I ever talk to, they just say to me that, whether I come to take the test or if I don’t take the IELTS test, they are not gonna refund me, worst and ridiculous customer service, Never Ever Book a test on this testing Center.
Response: Usman, As the Director of this Test Center, I take this sort of feedback very seriously, so thank you for taking time to write out your thoughts. IELTS is an international standardized test with a refund policy that is not set by the local center. Refunds are allowed for documented health conditions and other clearly-defined situations, as described during the registration process. I apologize if our commitment to upholding the standard IELTS policies to which we are accountable was perceived as rude, though we simply do not have the amount of flexibility that you were hoping for. Our commitment is to deliver the IELTS test according to the international standards in all areas of back office administration, test delivery, materials security, personal integrity, and customer service. I would be more than happy to discuss your personal experience further, to get a better understanding of anything you would like to highlight. Jared Holsing Director (703) 527-7888

Daniela Melendez: Do not take your TOEFL exam here!!!! I wish I would have read the reviews for this location as a test center before my exam. It wasn't even that the place was not well equipped. I didn't even have the chance to experience that. Nobody showed up!!! We were 15 test-takers waiting, and they never opened the building nor answered our calls. We couldn't take the test, and now I have been on the phone trying to reschedule it for over 2 hours. This is a nightmare; please try to take it at home or find a better location.

Ali Almdaoi: I am so happy I made the decision to go to school lnlingua where I did. I really love Inlingua these are just a few reasons why. The incredible staff i've met The staff I have met at inlingua have made such a huge impact on me. they are so nice with the people. the Inlingua try to help the students also people as they can they will do anything to help students succeed. finally, I recommend you guys to choose inlingua because they try to develop every one to be much better.

S Libby: The first time I went to the school, I really enjoyed it. First of all, the front desk service is very professional . They let me clear and quick understanding of the school curriculum, and then they help me for my personal situation made several plans, So I have a lot of choices, and give me plenty time full to consideration. The second, after joining the school, I feel like a family in here, Every teacher who whether you know or don't know . They will be warm to say hello and regard to you. I remembered my first class, I was shy to speak but the teacher was very patiently guide me and help me. Even teacher was effective help for my question of study and make me improve a lot. So I made great progress. And the school every day it will have extra-curricular activities to enrich everyone's spare time. Finally I want to talk about that the geographical environment of the school. The school is located near by the beautiful Potomac River, and a bridge between the famous Georgetown and school. From our school to metro station only 5 minutes by walk. There are many supermarket, restaurants surrounding the school. No matter where you want to go.life in here is very convenient. Therefore, Inlingua , we have no reason to don't love it.I hope there will have more and more friends to join our family in the future! Happy learning together! : )
Response: We are so grateful for your kind words. Thanks for sharing your review with us and the community. Our school's pride is our wonderful staff members, teachers and the perks of having a great location!

Amara Ganjuur: It's so unforgettable memories that related with Inlingua Washington. Just after i landed in Dulles airport, it was my first spot to visit and the front-desk stuff welcomed me so nicely and friendly. And i also never ever forget the wonderful feeling when i was trying to find a school and walking along the road when i first got off the Metro in Rosslyn Station. President of School, McKay welcomed me so nicely and Patricia helped me a lot to join right English level when i was there. International Student advisor Natalie helped to invite my family under F-2 dependent visa come here. I really miss the school staff and my classmates there. If its possible, i wanna study here as much as i can. I highly recommend you guys this English school, If you really want to improve your English language Academically and Practically. English language materials and methodology is so practical and very useful.

Mohamed Khadir: This review is about TOEFL test test center in this horrible place . Don't ever take your test here , very bad staff , the hall has the check in desk and you will take the test in the same place , so noisy and distracted , plus the computers separated by cartoon sheets like you literally will hear the person next to you, plus the computers most of it hanging , old , not good .person who check in people lack of experience , she is very slow , doesn't know how to move me and put me in another computer when i asked to , because apparently she doesn't know how to do it . this center waste my time my money because of the bad standards they follow, I hope other people see my comment and please for god sake don't ever take your test here if you wanna get a good score in TOEFL. you all know Toefl need concentration all depend on time each second will change your score , Definitely this is not a good place to achieve your goal .
Response: Hi Mohamed. We would like to extend our apologies regarding your experience in this test. We always make sure our applicants are satisfied with the service. We follow the ETS requirements for testing, and we are very interested in your comments. If you have any suggestions, it would be great if you could email the team with some ideas at toefl@ets.org

Luis Roberto Escoto: The course really helped me improve in my listening, reading, writing and speaking skills in English. This class helped me become more aware of my weaknesses and also gave me tools to strengthen them. Different activities such as question and answer activities, pair work, educational games group, discussions and group projects, dialogues, role playing, oral presentations, multimedia activities and books helped me understand how I could become a more effective communications in English. The class is a lot of work, but it's totally worth it. I learned a variety of elements and principles to continue studying English by myself. The private classes were useful and helped highlight key to review basic concepts and structures to speaking and reading and hold and take part in meetings in English. I particularly enjoyed the private classes. I am already recommending the course to some of my friends who are interested in improving their skills in English. The course requires a lot of work that some people may not be willing to put into it.

Komal Ganjoo: I had an awesome experience studying at Inlingua DC. I took an IELTS test prep, where I enhanced my all four areas- Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. My special thanks to Patricia Layden, who responded to all my concerns and guided me accordingly; I am also thankful to Katja Edwards, who helped in all smooth transactions and big thanks to my instructor, Jessica Fast Michel, who patiently worked hard on my weak areas. Sincerely, to learn English, Inlingua is the best.

Mehmet Osman Coskun: I studied at Inlingua prior to going to law school. Learned so much and had so much fun. Teachers were great and very friendly. After studying there i got a 7.5 on the ielts exam.

International School of Languages: what do users think?


John Wood: As a current student I can say I am a huge fan of ISL for many reasons. I have been taking Portuguese there online with a fantastic professor and support staff and am having a lot of fun learning the language. When I visited Brazil my inlaws / family / friends all were asking me how I had improved so much recently and I told them about my classes at ISL. They told me I must have a good teacher and I said I definitely do. Other benefits include the flexibility of online classes and the the very affordable cost. Overall I am extremely happy with ISL and am excited I am finally on my way to becoming bilingual.
Response: Thank you so much John for your nice review! It is great that your Portuguese classes are going well with Rosangela and that you have accomplished so much. We are very happy to have you as a student!

June Lee: My daughter worked with a wonderful tutor from middle school through her high school graduation to supplement her school French class and to improve her French speaking/listening comprehension. As her schedule became busier I would check to see if she wanted to continue the tutoring sessions and the answer was always a strong YES. Johannes' patience, warmth and natural teaching style really helped her improve her level, confidence and interest in truly learning beyond school. Johannes and the staff at ISL are invested in their students - celebrating, congratulating or showing concern as life events happen outside of class. This is a connection we will always appreciate.
Response: Dear June, thank you very much for sharing your experience at ISL. We are lucky to have such nice students!

Tatijana Pesic: I had the excellent experience with the International School oh languages. They came to my assistance when I needed them and were most prompt and expedient when I needed them. I am most happy with everything with them. I recommend them completely. The language teacher was most nice and helpful. I had the good experience with them. Thank you International School of Languages. I will use you again.
Response: Thank you Tatijana for sharing your experience. It has been a pleasure having you as a student. A presto!

Bill Geary: I started taking individual in-person French classes through ISL just before the pandemic shut everything down. Classes continued on Zoom which is a great format for one-on-one language training. Everything is captured on the whiteboard and emailed to me so I don't have to focus on taking lots of notes... instead I can focus on listening and learning. My teacher is a native French speaker and everyone involved with ISL has been friendly, flexible, and communicative. I also use Duolingo but it is not as good at teaching languages. I highly recommend language training at ISL.
Response: Hello Bill, Bill, thank you so much for taking the time to kindly share your experience with us! We are very happy that you are enjoying the French lessons at ISL. We look forward to continue helping you in your French journey :)

Bill Lustig: I have taken beginner Spanish lessons here since September 2012, and have been very pleased with my progress. My instructor was always prepared for class, and did a good job explaining confusing subjects (for me, it was grammar, while for another student in my class, it was pronunciation). The office staff was very helpful, and was great about setting up make-up classes for me whenever I had a scheduling conflict. If you're hoping to learn a new language, or brush up on one that's gotten rusty, I would definitely recommend Language Fundamentals. Also, it's nearby a pretty good burger place.

Johnnie Kenneybrew: I took both Portuguese and Hebrew at ISL for a few months and I was thrilled with the service I received. The school is very small which allows for you to get more individualized attention from the teacher and you get a chance to build good relationships with those around you as well. I really enjoyed the approaches that were used in classes. The Portuguese teacher, Rosangela, really went above and beyond and worked hard to ensure that we were really pushing ourselves in class and working outside of the classroom as well (she also brought in pão de queijo which was a delicious motivator). I had a blast refreshing my Hebrew skills with private lessons and group classes as well. The teacher, Miriam, was very supportive as we went over the alef-bet, basic vocabulary, and conversational Hebrew that I'd be able to use everyday during my trip to Israel. She was really creative and made class very interactive sometimes even with songs and coloring (2 activities that I feel are underrated when it comes to learning a new language!). The administrative team was extremely flexible with me and I could not be happier with the relationships I've made at ISL or with the language services I've received. I am taking a break for now just because I can't find the time these days but as soon as that changes I will be back in the classroom. I found their classes and lessons to be quite affordable and everyone you interact with there truly wants to help you on you goal of learning a new language. It's a really uplifting environment!

Ana Toribio: I had english conversational private lessons for 12 hours. The teacher was great, she had lots of patience, very good manners and a big constantly smile. I can say my english really improved. I would highly recommend International School of Languages to anyone who wants to improve in english speaking language.
Response: Ana, thank you so much for your kind review. We are happy that you had a good experience with us. It has been a pleasure meeting you. Hope to see you soon! Have a great trip back home!

Alpaca Paca: WORST management & irresponsible customer service! (I would rate a negative star if I could!) I've registered for the Japanese language spring classes like one month ago. ONE hour prior to the class started , I got a call from the center saying that the classes is CANCELLED due to I'm the only student where they need at least 2 pax to start the group class!! I was being recommended to wait a week or two perhaps there will be additional head count for the class, or I can switch it to private lesson ( 7 instead of 11 classes for what I've paid .) I will appreciate if they could carry on the class as I was given such a last minute notice. However, I was not being offered that . Instead , I requested for refund as I'm so disappointed with the management. Meanwhile , other language schools has started their spring classes too , means that I can't sign up at other centers too! Well, I wish you luck if you were to sign up for this school.
Response: Dear Lim, I am sorry that this has happened. We definitely did not reach our standards today when we missed the fact that there was only one student (you) enrolled in today's class and failed to call you earlier to let you know. Instead, we gave you a call an hour before the class was supposed to start so I understand your frustration. I would feel the same way. As a first time student with us, I am sorry that this is the impression we have left on you. Many of our students have been with us for several years largely because of their satisfaction with our services. We recognize our mistake and for that reason we were very prompt in refunding your entire investment. Please accept our apologies once again.

Matthew Wilson: THE place to sign up for intensive personalized training at the right level for you!
Response: Thank you Matthew for sharing! We are happy to hear that lessons are going well with Ana Maria. Very happy to have you as our student!

Nancy Shalett: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy professor is fabulous - and the staff is attentive and pleasant I can highly recommend them!
Response: Nancy, thank you soo much for your kind words. Students like you is what makes us want to work harder every day!

Lei Wang: Compared with other beautiful buildings with lots of art details, the Dept. of Education building is very simple and concise

Jay Rogers: A giant waste of taxpayer money. Every state and municipality has their own unique regional history and story. Education needs to be handled at the local level so we can have more character, innovation, responsibility, accountability, and frugality. End this organization now. It was created by Jimmy Carter to appease the teachers unions (who hate school choice). States and towns are better equipped to understand the children's needs than federal bureaucrats. No Child Left Behind was a giant failure and Common Core represents one size fits all nonsense.

Howard Community College ESL: what do users think?


T M: Now online registration is not available for ESL, so you need to go there for it in one of the assigned date. Then choose which class you'll take and pay for it before the class starts. So what happens is you would get a wrong/futile class for you, since you can't have enough information when you need to make decision. Though when the classes start, the opportunity for changing registration or cancellation is limited. Don't miss the first week and make a decision quickly not to waste your time and money. There are great, experienced teachers indeed, though of course not everyone. The level of teachers doesn't seem really balanced. Although the teachers and office representatives are kind and nice. Except the inconvenience about registration and small flexibility, it is a highly recommended ESL school.

Georgetown University: what do users think?


Alex Kolkena: For the record, I didn't go to school here, but I've only heard good things. From a tourist's perspective, there's plenty of neat architecture on campus. It's in one of the older sections of Washington DC, so definitely worth checking out.

Da-Wang Wu: I have several talented colleagues who graduated from Georgetown University, so I always want to visit this school. The campus is very beautiful, especially with the fall foliage. It’s a nice half-day trip to visit the university, the shopping area (mainly on M Street), the canal and the waterfront park.

Danny L: Must place to visit if you are visiting DC. Lots of things to do around the university. Great place for photography and sightseeing. Plenty of Restaurants around that area. You would love it.

David Gilbank: I fulfilled a lifelong ambition when I came to Georgetown to see where The Exorcist was filmed. I particularly wanted to throw my self down the stairs that featured in the finale. Obviously that could cause terrible damage, so I through a soft toy down instead. See photos. Its a brilliant beautiful neighbourhood. Well worth a visit.

Mj Dillenburg: Great graduation ceremonies! Except for the 95 degree heat and humidity....it was beautiful.

Adnana K: I've had my last two kids here. They met all my needs in that time. Both C-sections were done perfectly. Two and a half days hospital stay. Recovery was very successfull. Staff was very friendly and professional. I highly recommend this hospital.

Russ Watts: Excellent university, superb perspective on the political realm, mindful about the Jesuit values.

Enric Piferrer Torres: We stopped for a quick walk around the university buildings, and it was worth it! It reminded me of Harry Potter somehow. Beautiful main building. We parked outside for free in a 2 hour parking (no meter). The neighborhood is beautiful too

Justin Ahearn: So charming and beautiful. Feel like I’m going to get culture of Washington DC and the people that I meet are great

lilian gonzalez: I do not come to school here but it's a must place to visit and see in person!!! The buildings are so beautiful and massive. It's breathtaking. The surrending place to grab food is amazing and you can bring it back and either sit in the rocking chairs or picnic tables they have or bring a blanket and lay under a tree and relax!! It's so nice!!
