Fusion Academy Washington D.C.: what do users think?


Chloe Duran: My name is Chloe Duran and I just left Fusion. I am 14 and going to 9th grade next year. I am going to boarding school next year, but I had a phenomenal time at Fusion. I had a great experience and made many great relationships in the little time I was there. There are no words to describe the amazing teachers and staff at Fusion. I felt like I could trust everyone and ask for help without feeling judged. The students were amazing as well. I made a lot of friends very quickly because of how welcoming everyone was. I highly recommend this school to any student. :)
Response: Thank you for sharing your story here, Chole. We're so glad you had a great Fusion experience and wish you the best in the next step of your journey at boarding school. We're always here for you if you need us!

Jennifer Levy: Fusion helped saved our child's life. Our daughter was battling a debilitating medical condition her junior and senior years of high school and needed flexibility to complete her classwork in order to graduate. The Fusion team provided amazing teachers for one-on-one coursework, and they bent over backward to accommodate her difficult scheduling needs. The academic instruction was first rate, and the teachers and administrators were endlessly patient with working around her constantly-changing health conditions. These folks are educational HEROES! We could not have made it through this difficult time without this dedicated team. I highly recommend Fusion to any family who needs help with special educational circumstances.
Response: Wow, what a thoughtful review, Jennifer. Thank you for taking the time to share your story here. We're so happy we could be there for your daughter and family in a difficult time.

anne: My son, who is 18 years old and now a senior at Fusion, just finished his Junior year there. This is a big deal because he was in terrible mental shape not long ago. He would need a new style of teaching, one that would ease him back into learning, attending class, making friends, and lastly, creating supportive connections with his teachers and peers. When my husband found The Dorm in Washington, DC, to continue his mental health treatment, they encouraged us to reach out to Fusion Academy. They explained that with Fusion’s 1:1 ratio, he would have the most amount of support, while still getting exposure to that all important social life with other students. (This was something our son desperately wanted, which is why we would not consider him learning from home remotely, on-line, any longer.) His time started well at Fusion, he made friends and really liked his teachers. He grew more confident that he could manage his class schedule and make it to class on time. He learned how to navigate the city, have some fun, and also keep up with his studies. His grades slipped at a mid point, he was not following through on assignments. Fusion Academy reached out to us, and The Dorm, to let us know the situation. Because I and his dad get the ‘Daily Notes’ from his teachers on his progress, we were aware of his decline before they even needed to reach out. His teachers, with Fusion’s director leading the charge, empathetically but firmly got him grounded again, making it clear that just because life can get a bit tough or busy, he had to learn to reach out for help, finish all missing assignments, and keep his promises towards his teachers. He learned to better manage his time, the work/life balance, yet also find ways to be social, caring, and connected. His teachers have been one of the BEST driving forces in his transformation. He deeply respects them. He enjoys his classes. He wants to succeed. He also doesn’t want to slide back into video gaming, which is why he prefers not using a computer, but using his smart phone. Dad and I are very proud of the choices he is making on a daily basis. He has to mange himself, something he has always struggled with. His teachers guide him daily, hourly if necessary. The shear amount of attention he gets from his lead advisor, his teachers, and the school, is unbelievable. He knows deep in his bones he is accepted for WHO HE IS. HE KNOWS HEIS ENOUGH. A work in progress. (As we all are!) Thank you so very much for shepherding him along on all the many challenges he has faced and will continue to face. Each obstacle he overcomes further builds his experience level and confidence.
Response: Thank you so much for sharing your story here, Anne. We are so glad that Fusion is a safe space for your son to learn and grow. It is an incredible honor to be a part of his journey.

Matthew Huggins: We have been extremely happy with Fusion Academy DC for our daughter, who attended for grades 7 and 8. At Fusion, our daughter’s teachers understood her intellect, challenged her with extra assignments, and worked with her as a unique individual. They recognized her as a person with unique and valued gifts and talents and way of seeing the world, and helped her develop those gifts and talents further. Fusion DC allowed her to grow intellectually and academically, while also having the opportunity to make friendships in a kinder setting. In our experience, Fusion is a 100% no-tease zone, and that is just what our daughter needed – an environment where the other kids were open and accepting of her and one another, and where she could get the academic rigor that she and we were seeking. We have been very pleased with our experience at Fusion Academy DC.
Response: Thank you for sharing your story, Matthew. It makes us so happy to hear your daughter had a great Fusion experience, and that you have been extremely happy!

Joy Funk: I've worked at Fusion Academy for almost 4 school years at three different campuses. As a young professional, I was able to get SO much amazing experience in private school operations and administration, learning how to design and enforce protocols and ensure excellence in the experiences of our community. Fusion DC is the most recent campus I am at and the team and the students are loving, intelligent, and beautifully unique. Located just above DuPont Circle, the location is cool and very accessible with many shops and restaurants surrounding it. Fusion DC's leadership is passionate, responsive, and experienced. It is a joy to work here and support others growing as I continue to do so myself.
Response: Thank you for sharing, Joy! We are so glad you're a part of our team!

Gwyn: My experience here has been super solid! I really love both the teachers and the students here and I find everyone very kind and welcoming. As an autistic person and a student, I've found that my experience has been wonderful. My creativity is not only tolerated, but appreciated. I can use it in class. Also, without Fusion, I never would've been introduced to recording music. I know it's not hard to get good grades here, but I'm proud to say that Fusion is the only school that I've had straight As at. My only complaints are that there isn't an actual café for homework café, the location is in a very annoying and inconvenient spot, and the schedule isn't consistent.
Response: Thank you for your review and feedback! We're glad your experience was wonderful!

Alison Hollis: I have never worked with such a compassionate and student-centered group of teachers. Our students come to Fusion because something about the traditional school system does not work for them, and our teachers make sure that those students- many of whom hate school- have a positive educational experience. When you walk down the hallways of our school, you hear laughter and high quality discussions. You see teachers creatively engaging students based on their interests and learning needs. If you want to work with educators who put students first or learn from teachers who center your ideas and needs, then Fusion DC would be a perfect fit.
Response: Alison, thank you so much for sharing such a beautiful review. We're so glad you are a part of our Fusion DC Team!!

Becky Sachs: We have been so happy with our experience at Fusion for our 12th grader and 7th grader. The teachers are wonderful and work hard to connect with students and make lessons meaningful. Both of my kids have been engaged in and excited by what they are learning. The experience has been great for them academically and for their confidence.
Response: Becky, thank you so much for sharing your review here. We are so glad you're happy with your Fusion experience!

Crosby: My little brother went here this past year and I honestly think it saved his school experience. He had been struggling worn the traditional school model especially during the pandemic so we decided to pivot to Fusion and WOW is it great. Not only are the classes/ education very customizable, but the teachers are all so kind and more than willing to help when necessary. Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone. Thanks Fusion!
Response: Thank you for your review and recommendation, Crosby! We are so glad your brother did so well at Fusion!

Gretel French: Working with Fusion D.C has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life and career! I love how we customize for our all of our amazing stakeholders, so that we may all reach for the stars.
Response: Gretel, we're so happy you're a part of our team! Thank you for sharing your review here.

Cozymeal Cooking Classes: what do users think?


Valerie Damond: Last night twelve members of my family experienced a truly remarkable Spanish dinner. Chef Greg presented us with a very relaxing and utterly delicious meal. Every course was beautifully displayed and clearly constructed with the best ingredients. He and his helper served us and left the kitchen immaculate. If you would like to experience an expertly crafted Spanish cuisine, I highly recommend Chef Greg.

D H: I had my Cozymeal event today. I have never participated in an online cooking class before, and I must say it was great! My daughter and I took the class making the Chinese dumplings with Chef Li. Chef Li was great and while making the recipes really gave good information on the Chinese culture and the different types of substitutions to use in the event you are not able to get a specific ingredient. She made suggestions regarding kitchen utensils and made sure that all of us were on track with her during her instruction. My only difficulty was with the recipes being in grams and not in US measurements. It would be nice to have both listed. I live in a very rural area and this option of online cooking classes is such a welcome experience. I would definitely take another class!!

Benjamin Bowden: Really enjoyed having Chef Tiffany cook for my girlfriend and me. Great food, great conversation, and a generally excellent evening. One note: she arrived 45 minutes prior to the scheduled arrival time, when nobody was home. Her early arrival was a positive, as the meal took a few hours to prepare, but Cozymeal should communicate better with the clients about true arrival time. Bottom line: Tiffany provided an excellent French meal, all cooked from scratch, with fresh ingredients. Moreover, there were leftovers! Really looking forward to my next Cozymeal experience.

Alison Ponzi: We had an evening full of freshly made pasta, bruschetta, and bread pudding with Chef Tiffany. I bought a KitchenAid mixer last year with the pasta attachment, and she was open to teaching me how to use it. She also worked with us on our likes/dislikes allowing us to choose a different appetizer. All in all it was a successful night with great food, company, and conversation.

Grace Morrissey: I loved the class. Chef Li's technique was easy to understand. I just need to practice more. I am making the dumplings again this week. They were delicious. The cabbage salad won a big spot in my heart..., I will make it often. Looking forward to do another class with Chef Li

Steven Sacks: Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, ValueMy girlfriend and I took the Festival of Indian Flavor with Chef Manjiri. It was such a wonderful experience - she clearly explained the agenda for the class, told us about herself, explained all the ingredients, and then helped us through all four recipes with both laughter and fun. What a great time!

Theano Kampani: Really enjoyed having Chef Greg cook for my husband and me. Great food, and great conversation!We highly recommend Chef Greg and his Spanish dishes. The star of the menu was the dessert for us :)

Kathleen Norwood: This was a wonderful experience. Chef Gustavo was a delightful host and instructor He shared knife and preparation tips as well as the history of the food. The food was muy rico and we came away with many tips to make prep easier and food tastier for making a yummy paella as well as other dishes. Chef Gustavo created a welcoming, warm and relaxed evening. Thank you, Chef Gutavo!

Jeanne Liu: We took the Festival of Indian Flavors class with Chef Manjiri and it was wonderful! She explained everything and her recipe was fast and not intimidating. What we made was so delicious and I can't wait to try out one of her other classes. Do not hesitate to book one of Chef Manjiri's classes!

Niki Holmes: We had an amazing experience with Chef Judith. Her recipes were easy; we had great company; and the Chef taught us some very useful techniques. --Plus--The food tasted so delicious!

Spanish Tutor DC: what do users think?


John Ciccone: Spanish Tutor DC has been a great way to improve my conversational abilities and grammar skills. I have interacted with and been taught by a few instructors; each one has been excellent. Classes with very small student class sizes are structured to get you engaged and conversing. If you can't attend class one week, you can join a different class on a different day that week. That experience serves to broaden your conversation skills by interacting with a different group of students. There is a solid methodology behind the sequence of developing grammar, writing, and reading skills. I have been taking classes for over a year. I started with in-person classes before the pandemic, and then we switched to online. The online classes have been just as engaging and useful. I continue to re-enroll, and it has significantly improved my Spanish speaking, listening, reading, and writing abilities.

Yuri Lee: Spanish Tutor DC is a great place to improve Spanish skills. The discussion-based classes are challenging yet enjoyable. It really helps you practice and improve verbal communication skills. My teacher Richard is very passionate and attentive, and always makes sure the class is engaging. I love that Spanish Tutor DC has very flexible schedule and tuition is reasonably priced. I am planning to sign up for more classes!

Diane Brown: I´ve have been taking private lessons with Deborah for almost a year and have been very pleased with my progress. I´ve been trying different ways to learn Spanish for years and the private lessons have been the most effective. I´ve finally made it to the intermediate level! Having the classes over Zoom works well and allows for schedule flexibility. I highly recommend Spanish Tutor DC.

Sarah Boyle: I've been taking classes through Spanish Tutor DC with Deborah for about 6 months and I've had a great experience. First I took a group class, then one on one sessions. Deborah is really organized, clear, and consistent, which is really helpful for me in learning a new language. She does a lot of repetition too which has helped me actually learn things long term. I've enjoyed working with her online during COVID and she's always flexible if I need to move things around. I would recommend Deborah and Spanish Tutor to learners of all levels (I was/am a beginner)!

Jill Raval: I have had a great experience with Spanish Tutor. The minute I walk into class I feel happy and challenged. The interactive set up of the class really helps you practice and learn. We watch fun learning videos and discuss our weekends in Spanish. I travel a lot so have ended up taking many make up classes but I have had a pleasant experience with every teacher. The diversity of the teachers is refreshing. I have had one teacher from Peru and another from Chile, and they are both great! I have taken over 15 classes and I plan to continue with Spanish Tutor for a while also because it is reasonably priced. If you're looking for a hands on Spanish learning experience then Spanish Tutor is the right place for you.

Denise Eggers: I've been very, very pleased with Spanish Tutor DC. My tutor, Deborah, is just great. She's very knowledgeable and has a talent for explaining subtleties of the language. This school also offers a great resource: podcasts in Spanish, covering many topics at different proficiency levels. I've found the podcasts and supporting materials (transcripts, exercises with answer keys) to be incredibly helpful. I highly recommend this school.

Paula Moreira: Spanish Tutor DC was great with me! Very professional. The whole process went very well. They understood my needs, assigned me a great tutor, Jorge from Peru, and provided good options for payment. They also have a campus web page with very good content that you can access for free to practice your Spanish. In general, disfrute de las clases y creo que hice un buen progreso y espero volver pronto a mis clases despues del verano.

John Hopkins: I would highly recommend Spanish Tutor DC to anyone looking to improve their Spanish skills. The small class sizes, high quality instructors, and discussion-focused coursework all make for a great learning environment, and the tuition is reasonably priced. Richard was my first teacher and he is excellent - patient, engaging, and clearly passionate about what he does. I will be signing up for more classes.

Adrianne Varitimidis: Such a great resource to learn Spanish. My teacher, Deborah, was amazing and I will most certainly be taking more classes in the future. The small class size was appreciated and the outside resources provided (book recommendations, podcasts to listen to, apps worth downloading etc.) were a big help to use when not in class. I'd recommend Spanish Tutor DC to anyone, from the most basic beginner to the most advanced.

Sidney Balman: I took classes with Spanish Tutor DC for about a year before moving away from DC. It is by far the best Spanish program in the DC area. The teachers are all native speakers who are very personable and each bring their own twist to the class. The teachers don't speak english during class, so it's easy to really improve your Spanish quickly. My teacher was Juan-Luis and he was awesome. Most classes included a grammar lesson, a reading lesson, and a conversational period where we would talk about current events, history, our lives, and anything that was interesting at the time. Juan-Luis always made sure the class was engaging, fun, and funny. The two hour sessions go by so fast. I highly recommend Spanish Tutor DC. They make you really want to learn Spanish and work to become a better speaker, reader, and writer. It's also affordable and in a great spot right above the Farragut North metro stop.

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.

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.

Raba Letteri: This is our son's fifth year at Lab School. We could not have been more pleased with the progress he has made. Our son's self-esteem and confidence was boosted, and it allowed him to achieve many of his goals. I cannot speak highly enough for Lab School's staff. Outstanding school!

Daniel Herman: Its a great special ed school. Great and innovative minded students, teachers, and administration. Couldn't ask to be a 10th grader rising 11th grader in a better private High School. The High School recently moved into a new and fancy with 21st century technology like touch white boards, white board walls, among other things.

Sanosuske: The negative exposure in the media because of one of the teachers has made me decide to not send my children back in fall. I understand everyone has freedom of speech and I agree with these rights, but with freedoms come responsibility and consequence, myself and my children should not have to suffer because someone whos affiliated with the school decides to be an activist. My phone has been ringing off the hook with other concerned parents, we're in a quandary to stay with a school we consider family or leave for the benefit of our children. I just decided before I reviewed to leave

Joel Okumu: Excuse me everyone but the President of America chose this place for his very loved generous respected and intelligent kids to go here. I think you are all saying these nasty comments for him to look bad and stupid. THIS IS A PRIVATE SELECTIVE SCHOOL. Think about it the Presidents kids go here of course they will report to there dad if something is wrong.

Pamela Evangeline: If its good enough for the President's kids, its good enough for the rest of us. BTW, its, THEIR not THERE (which is a location).In addition, EVERYONE, poops in a toilet.

Rhagen Butts: Because Sid well friends is the best they even have secret service in they own class room

Bonnie Auslander: A fantastic community of teachers who are dedicated to their students. My two kids have been there for six years and love it. Lots more info about our school on DC Urban Moms. Come take a tour or attend the bazaar in November to get a sense of what Waldorf/ Steiner education is all about.

Daniel Foster: We have two children at this school, and they are both extremely happy there, and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. The teachers are extremely dedicated, and the quality of the students' work is extraordinary. The curriculum is very rich, and the approach to teaching encourages a love of learning which is really the most important thing a school can provide.

Jennie Rabinowitz: Incredible place for children to learn at a developmentally appropriate pace without being beholden to nonstop testing. Teachers here have deep relationships with and insights into their individual students. So happy to have found this wonderful school and community!

Eric Holdsworth: We have had our daughter at this school since pre-school and she loves it. This school and its method of teaching are a magic elixir for what ails most public school teaching. Come to Waldorf and find a better way to learn.

Don Gabriel: I have no children, but I’ve always been impressed by the lectures that I attended. Everyone seems to be remarkably dedicated to their Waldorf adventure.

Andrei Farago: My friends and I were treated very badly by a teacher named miss spotolnick but everyone else was nice.

Lauren L: Taking Spanish lessons at Berlitz has been a wonderful experience. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating if there are any scheduling hiccups. My teachers go above and beyond by using different learning materials or thinking of creative ideas to keep pushing me to learn.
Response: Thank you, Lauren, for your feedback!

Leticia Vasquez: Attempted to enroll in Portuguese classes and contacted several people from the facility, but no one ever helped me sign up for classes. It's been 5 months in total since I showed my interest in taking the classes, but they never took that under consideration. It's just a lack of professionalism and customer service.
Response: Thank you for your review, Leticia. It is very important that we are meeting a high standard of customer service. We understand you inquiried at the Tysons Center location and interested in taking courses at the DC center, and did not receive a prompt response. We sincerely apologize for the delay in communication. We value your feedback and it will allow us to continue to improve our processes. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the DC center directly and hope to open the lines of communication once again.

Alliance Française: what do users think?


roberta weinman: I recently took three courses through this Alliance and finished the last one at B2.1. I have had many classes through other Alliances and was very disappointed with the quality and pace of the instruction. It seemed as though we were rushing through the book and exercises without the time to truly absorb what we were supposed to learn. We were often cut off when asking questions or making comments, so that the instructor could quickly go to the next section of the book. Learning should be enjoyable, as well as informative. This particular class was neither, especially compared with my other experiences. (Note: The Everyday French class was very good and completely different in tone and pace, with this instructor attuned to the needs of his students.) I am also appalled at the way I was treated by the administration when I made an attempt to talk about my experience with the instructor of the B-level classes. Sarah Diligenti, especially, is arrogant and dismissive and really does not want to hear about any negative experiences. The administration simply does not care. I would encourage potential students to stay away from this Alliance.

Melanie La Force: Positive: ProfessionalismThe staff are always willing to help. The teachers are awesome. I succeeded at getting my DALF C1. This was a tough exam and the prep was great.

jsksj ydjs: The staff of this alliance françaice was very rude to me. I only wanted to take the B2 delf exam, but because I failed the begging test, and they placed me as a A1 student, they told me that they won't allow me to take it never, no mattering how much French I could learn. I won't be back, and I don't recommend this place for anybody.

Bonnie Beavers: Bassima was my teacher for my class (level 104.A.2), which for me was the first French classroom experience since university days 40 years ago. I enjoyed it enormously and will sign up again. We spoke French the entire time, and the materials were very helpful & well-organized. French immersion schools abroad know about Alliance and respect their teaching.

JC Kollmorgen: Membership and the cost of classes are pretty steep altogether. However, the quality of teaching is good. Much better than taking a class at USA Graduate School, for examples. Their library is also fantastic. You can borrow books, DVDs, and audio. I only wish they had more higher level class offerings at their Penn Quarter location as it would be more convenient for me.

Brittany Roth: I took the A101 course at Alliance Francaise this last October and the professor spoke in English more than half of the time and the class moved very slowly, which is all fine given we are all complete beginners. She was very nice and made sure the students were understanding all the topics. I then signed up for this A102 class and the teacher spoke nearly 100% of the time in French and moved through new material very quickly. He explained all new concepts in French and did not always make sure that what he was explaining was understood. The A101 class that I took absolutely did not prepare me for the A102 class. The professor used words and phrases that were never previously covered. Also, if you did not understand right away he would become very impatient. One time I said I did not understand something and he said scoffed and asked why? He did similar things with other students. His behavior was very upsetting and often times caused me to get frustrated and want to give up. I finished this course very unhappy. On top of my frustrations with the teacher, I never received my results for the end of the session test. This past week I moved to France and want to enroll in the Alliance Francaise program in Toulouse and having my test results would have been great in order to help place me in a course here.

Sarah Lewthwaite: Alliance Francaise has a very poor system for allocating students to levels in teen classes. We wasted a lot of money -- their classes are expensive -- because our daughter's class contained one student who was way behind all the others, and the teacher taught at that student's level. When we raised the issue, we encountered a dismissive attitude from a senior staff member. Classes for other ages may be good -- we have no experience of them -- but don't waste your money on teen classes.

Albert Traver: I've attended two beginner courses so far ($400 each) at l'Alliance and I'm pretty happy with my French and the teaching. They have a lot of day/time options at my level so it's been convenient and looks like their library has a bunch of options but haven't explored it yet.

Charlotte Dadzie: I think the class I took helped me improve my language skills a little, I did not like the fact that the teacher I had did not say anything when students were laughed at when they made a mistake. I mean We learn together, we shouldn’t laugh at people when they make a mistake, we should instead help them.

joseph Thompson: Wissam is a great French teacher. I took several classes with him and would highly recommend.

Hemant Gaule: Great institution, excellent faculty and resources available to students. A lot of impressive events and conferences are hosted at the institute.

Amy Friedlander: Like many others have said, the support staff, to include the Deans Office, is absolutely awful. Unhelpful, discourteous, unprofessional. I expected so much more from this institution, but the SCS is a disappointment and can only be described as a mediocre school at best.

Larry Poe: The classes and the professors are superlative. However, I concur with many comments here....THE SUPPORT STAFF SUCKS!!! You expect a lot more from the admissions office, registrar and folks that answer the phones (oh, by the way, if you call the SCS you usually receive the voice mail) when you pay 60K for a Master's degree. Georgetown is truly "resting on its laurels" and academic reputation in the customer service department. Every time I needed assistance from someone, it was as if I was asking for a favor and not paying for a service (lots of attitude and unhelpful comments). CUSTOMER SERVICE IS TRULY NOT A PRIORITY AT THIS INSTITUTION....
Response: Dear Larry, Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding Georgetown SCS’s Emergency & Disaster Management program in the Middle East. We’re sorry to hear that the student support services have not met your expectations thus far. We’d very much appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about your experience and do what we can to help with any outstanding issues. A member of your program support team will be reaching out to you as soon as possible to arrange a time to discuss. Sincerely, Office of the Dean, SCS

Karina Valverde: I love being a student on campus again. In pursuit of my masters in Public Relations and Corporate Communications. This campus is for the grad school and certificate programs. The culture is professional, high caliber students.

Patrick Revord: Convenient location, beautiful building, great instruction and great classmates. Georgetown runs a class act, even away from its main campus.

Monica Puerto: I enrolled into the Data Science Certificate Program at Georgetown. It is a waste of money and your time unless you have a robust background in Python. Most students did not because this certificate program appears to help you turn into one. I have background in SQL and data analytics and was hoping to gather some skills to make me a data scientist. Although I understand that a certificate program can’t turn you into one (although the marketing and messaging of this makes it appear so with the “robust” curriculum). This was purely taught on slides and wish it was more hands on. It is very expensive and you don’t start learning till the 3rd class. The first class was an introduction on what is data science (around $900) for some powerpoint you could have read at home. Second class was to get into groups to create a data product on a process that you barely know about. I recommend General Assembly they are more hands on. Although they don’t have the prestigious name (which I think Georgetown takes advantage of to teach this way), you will learn more and actually do projects AFTER you learn the material. I thankfully dropped out and sadly was only refunded the classes I did not take although intro to data science and getting into groups does not feel like real classes..
Response: Dear Monica—Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding Georgetown SCS’s Data Science Certificate program. We’re sorry to hear that the program did not meet your expectations. We've received your feedback on the course and have worked to integrate improvements, including communicating the Python expectation and resources available to students. We invite you to speak further about your experience by contacting a staff member of the Center for Continuing and Professional Education by email at ccpeprograms@georgetown.edu or by calling 202-687-8128. Sincerely, Andrew (Office of the Dean, SCS Georgetown University)

Don Johnson: Thought Google users might enjoy seeing what this building looked like in 1919.(credit: Library of Congress)

Rose T.J. Perna: Georgetown SCS staff are unorganized, unresponsive and unprofessional. My son had a horrible experience with the administration. They do not return phone calls or emails. It may be an "elite school" but the SCS program has less than stellar staff and administration. I hope that they clean up quick, his actual program was very well and the insturctors were very qualified. But if you need a document or any type of administration assistance- you'd be better off going to another school.
Response: Hi Rose! Thank you for your message. We're sorry to hear about your experience. Thanks for being in touch so we were able to resolve your issue.

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. Also for IELTS exam they are Providing a good environment for test performance, and excellent management handling for cooperation with all people . thank you
Response: Dear Ali, We are VERY happy we made a big impact in your life. We are here to help everyone reach their educational goals and we are glad you are happy with our service!

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.

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 .

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.
