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.

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.

Inlingua Washington DC: what do users think?


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

Hanan KSA: I miss my school and my great teachers 👩🏻‍🏫 👨🏻‍🏫 so much. I had a spectacular experience with all the staff at inlingua school 💛 love you guys 💕 Hanan 🇸🇦April 2015
Response: Hi Hanan! Thank you for this great review for inlingua Washington DC. We pride ourselves for having the best instructors who care about the students' goals in life. Stop by anytime to say hello!

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.

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. 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 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.

LinguaLink DC: what do users think?


Carolina Abrusci Quijada: The sessions with Marike have been excellent. She assessed my level of English and has adapted each session to my needs. We have used the sessions to prepare material I need for my work, which has been of tremendous help. It goes without saying that she is an expert when it comes to English, but I especially value the approach she has to explaining everything with perfect and very clear examples. The sessions with her have improved my English and built my confidence. I recommended her to several colleagues, and they all share my opinion. Thank you Marike for all your help. Your sessions are not only educational, but also very fun.

Jon Ch_y: Marike helped me with accent reduction and pronunciation. She's just the best. She tailored the learning for the legal English I use for my job. The amount of work she put in the preparation of the coaching sessions was just amazing. She perfectly knew and understood the expressions, technical vocabulary and idioms I get to use for my day-to-day. And she always had incredibly positive energy at each of our sessions. I got promoted a few weeks after I started working with Marike. And I still feel improvement in my oral English months after my last session with her. I highly recommend her!

Helga Veigl: I had a great time with Marike and I have learnt a lot during our sessions. She always customizes the lessons to my actual needs, and she makes sure that we are making progress. I always got some homework that was tailored to my needs and interests. She always gives feedback and sends it after the lessons. I highly recommend taking her classes. It is a very unique skillset she is offering, and it is very hard to find someone like her who understands all the delicacies of the business world.

Flavia Tello Sánchez: Marike is not a simple English teacher. She is a fabulous private coach. Marike knows about global politics, different cultures and diplomacy, so you can encourage your skills to communicate in a professional way. She is also a friendly person. If you try some classes with her, you will understand why I am saying this. 100% recommended.

Fabiana Santos: When I decided to find a private English teacher I was tired of all kinds of English courses that typically pair you with someone who is not a trained teacher or put you in a classroom with lots of other students. I wanted something different. My first contact with Marike surprised me. She is a fantastic teacher, and she gave me the opportunity to explain exactly what I wanted so that she could customize the learning experience. A real coaching experience! She is truly the best in the city. Every class she offers interesting topics and proves her amazing versatility and flexibility as an English coach and tutor. And because it's only me and her I always return home confident that I have improved a lot. Every minute with her counts. She is an amazing guide to English and American culture. Nowadays, I feel much more at ease talking with Americans and my quality of life has improved tremendously.

Kang Wang: Highly recommended! Marike has been my English tutor for a while now. I have learnt a lot from her and have been enjoying our weekly sessions very much. My English has improved a lot. She has been very patient with me and helped me with my pronunciation and vocabulary expansion. What I also appreciate very much is how I have learned a lot about American/western politics and culture in addition to English training. I came to the U.S. four years ago and didn't know much about this society and culture. Marike is an English teacher with a background in American Studies and Political Science which makes her not only excellent but unique in her approach. Our topics cover many fields we are both interested in like politics, history, and cultural diversity through which I have not just practiced my English but have also gained a lot of other interesting knowledge.

ISABEL CLAVERO: When I met Marike, the founder of LinguaLink DC, I realized right away that > she was the English teacher I needed. No more exercises not tailored to > your needs, no more so-called small groups of 8 people always focusing on > the same questions without any customization! Marike has changed all this > with her unique combination of being a great conversationalist and teacher > all in one. She has really helped me a lot with diverse topics ranging from > pronunciation to complicated press articles and always adapts her approach > to my needs. Isabel Clavero. Embassy of Spain

Javiera Sandoval Quiroz: I highly recommend LinguaLinkDC to improve your English. I took a 3-months course to improve my speaking, and I feel that I have improved a lot. The methodology of the teacher is useful and practical, so you can easily track your advances. In addition, the teacher is very nice and smart, so she challenges you to think beyond. I will definitely continue recommending her to my Spanish-speaking colleagues. Thanks again, Marike.

iran costa: Having Marike Korn as my English teacher and coach has been fantastic. When I came from Brazil, I still thought my English was fine because I was able to communicate with other people, but then I got to a point in my life when I started feeling stuck. I realized my vocabulary was really poor and it started to frustrate me because I was missing out on some good opportunities in my life. That is why I started taking lessons with Lingua Link DC. It's crazy but Marike is so fantastic that only after a couple of days of having her as my teacher I figured out so many little things that I had never thought about before. She has really helped me a lot. Everything about her is great vibes. She is an amazing professional and English coach.

evan alterman: Even though as a native English speaker I utilize LinguaLink DC for German lessons, I can attest to Mrs. Korn's superb pedagogical abilities and, most importantly, love of language and teaching. Classes are jam-packed with information, yet they are presented in such a way that make the entire process engaging and fun. Mrs. Korn utilizes a wide variety of platforms to present material, so our discussions go far beyond declining nouns and involve nursery rhymes, music videos, cooking, and movies to promote a holistic understanding of culture via language. Mrs. Korn has a knack for tailoring instruction based on overall language goals, and I'm confident that she brings the same passion, dedication, and detail to her English-language students.

ILA - International Language Academy of Washington, DC: what do users think?


Divine Damango: Such a great school !!! I strongly recommand this school to learn english ! I met an excellent professors and students. We learned english faster but brillant !

Khalid Alnuaimi: In short and simple... The location is great... (Near to the Metro, Tyson Corner Mall, Coffee shop, and to the Supermarket(Harris Teeter)). The environment depends on students... Students are not allowed to talk in any other language than English, and it is essential to talk in low voice, so other students can concentrate on study. The ILA stuff encourages students to speak in English during the day. Short classes... Classes usually from 10 to 2, So do not care about traffic and if you have a car, parking is available and free. In addition, you just have four days a week. Books are provided... Most books are provided, and it's not just the language I get from the school, but culture understanding and many important topics that we cover over sessions. To conclude, you should visit the Institute if you interested and check that your self. (Read, Write if you want to learn fast, but remember good things take time!!)

Laura Sansone: ILA is an amazing English school. I studied at ILA for 2 months and I has been a great experience!

Ummuhan Yavuz: It is a great place to learn English. Teachers are very good.

Wesley Taylor: Great school and excellent staff. Highly recommend.

Varsity Tutors - Washington DC: what do users think?


Taryn Quaytman: I've had a lovely experience working with Varsity Tutors! There are always new opportunities that arise to work with difference students, and I love that I am able to tutor multiple subjects. The company is very quick to respond to any questions or concerns I have and is very helpful in terms of advice and recommendations. I have entirely been able to shape my work schedule around my academic schedule, which is something that is very important to me. I would definitely recommend working for Varsity Tutors.

Grace Lee: I've been working with Varsity Tutors for about a month now, and I love the flexibility and options they provide. I am able to hold a full-time job and tutor on evenings and weekends with students that are nearby. The entire process from interviewing to getting matched with students is very professional and efficient. They also provide great online resources as teaching and reviewing tools to set you up for success. I'd highly recommend working with them!

Richard Fan: Working with Varsity Tutors has been a great experience. The staff are great people and genuinely care about the interactions between the client and the teacher. The staff are are a joy to communicate with. In addition, the hours are flexible and practical. I would definitely recommend Varsity Tutors as the go-to tutoring service.

Nathan Sick: Working for Varsity Tutors has been a very positive experience. They have been extremely flexible and provided many tutoring opportunities with students who have fit my teaching personality, and who have been very enjoyable to work with. The online platform is also sophisticated, with minimal technical difficulties and robust support. I would recommend working for Varsity Tutors to anybody.

hakim haddadi: I started working with Varsity Tutors for about a couple months and had a great experience working with them and this starting from the interviewing process to getting matched with students which is very professional and efficient. They also provide great online resources as teaching and reviewing tools to set you up for success. They are extremely welcoming, friendly and always available for both tutors and student if they have any question. They check on you periodically to make sure everything is going well. Its nice to know that you have the support when you need it. I also like their way to keep you up-to-date on all of the latest tutoring opportunities through multiple portals, such as email, text, and on their website. the hours are flexible and practical. I would definitely recommend Varsity Tutors as the go-to tutoring service. I'd highly recommend working with them!

Valerie Pisierra: I have really enjoyed working with Varsity Tutors. Whenever I have had issues either technical or administrative they have been very quick to help me solve the issue. They have just recently revised their payment schedule where tutors get paid every week. This is a great advantage over other companies that only pay once a month. I really enjoy my students and Varsity Tutors is in constant contact with me regarding their accounts and any issues that might arise. The Directors are all very knowledgeable and easy to get in contact with if I have questions or concerns.

Siddhu Anandalingam: I've really enjoyed my experience working as a tutor with Varsity Tutors. They are great at matching tutors with potential students, and always have students who need tutoring! The staff is also very receptive to questions and concerns, and are quick to follow up. The pay isn't too bad either!

Sandy Harlow: I've been with Varsity Tutors for about 3 months and there is much to like. I like working with one student at a time, so I can adjust the pace to the capability of the individual student. I like the fact that Varsity Tutors screens all the students, and comes to me only with potential students who seem like a good fit. It didn't take me long to get lined up with all the students I have time for. I also like the flexibility to schedule sessions at any time during the week and on weekends that works for the student and for me.

Kathryn Whitelaw: I have had a great experience working for Varsity Tutors. They are always available if you have any questions, and they are extremely welcoming. They also keep you up-to-date on all of the latest tutoring opportunities through multiple portals, such as email, text, and on their website. You have the opportunity to help students reach their full potential at a click of a button, and it has been an extremely rewarding experience.

Javier Cepeda: My experience working with Varsity Tutors has been extremely positive. The flexible work environment and hours make it ideal for people who want to tutor outside their routine schedule. The online teaching platform is also attractive since it allows you to essentially teach anyone, anywhere.

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!

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.

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.

British International School of Washington: what do users think?


BSW PA Treasurer: A super professional independent private school in the heart of DC serving Nursery to High School Students. What makes this school standout is its British high quality curriculum and diverse student population. Class sizes are small and the teaching first class.

Tuna Şeker: Its professional school for me. Education is super and beautiful classes in this school.

Ming Xia: Beautiful campus with magnificent buildings and statues. Of course you will see Nancy Pelosi's picture in the hallway of the main building!

Sharon Winget: The pool and gym are well equipped and clean. Locker room is spacious and clean. Friendly, welcoming place.

Betty Strickland: It was the best. My niece graduated in the top of here class. I'm so proud.

Chaturbhuj bhojwani: Excellent Education institute.

ANNA: I am a current student at Trinity Washington University and I definitely don’t feel the same way about this school, as i did a few months ago when I started. The school isn’t the worst but I would not say that you get the feeling of a good college experience. I am currently thinking about transferring to another school. So that I don’t create a long review for others to read I will give a bullet overview of what does on/why i want to leave: - The administration as a whole are not very cooperative, nor do they know how to really help you. Advisors just repeat the same information that you could have found in the Trinity website. - The food is NOT good. I have seen dining hall workers take food from the dining hall and take it over to the deli which is one building away and charge more for it. They give you a better sandwich if your using flex dollars, but they give a basic sandwich if your using your meal plan. - Security is not consistent, they pretty much let anyone on campus and don’t ask the necessary questions before having a car proceed to drop off/pick up or parking. - There are no water fountains in the freshman dorm, which i feel is a health hazard. I feel, if they can get a dollar out of me then they will. It’s either $1.25 - 1.75 for a bottle of water in the freshman building, and Laundry is $1.50 to dry and another $1.50 to dry. My first semester of freshman year it was clear that the dean didn’t like my professor so she would try and get us to say things negating about her, she would observe her teaching more than i’ve ever seen, and before the second semester was to start she quit. Trinity is nice in the brochures, and online, but if you come here you will soon realize unfortunately everything is not as it seems.

Malik Freeman: Beautiful campus just a few miles from DC. A great place to meet, eat and sleep.

Cristin Barnett: I've always struggled with academics, but my experience at Trinity was exceptional. The class sizes were much smaller than colleges I attended in the past. The environment was collaborative and engaging. I felt the teachers as well as the students wanted everyone to succeed. I am in the process of applying for my masters degree and didn't consider any other university. I'll continue my education at Trinity and would encourage my friends and colleagues to do the same.

Xavier Hodge: I have nothing nice at all to say about this awful school. Well, the professors are good and caring. The school administration is the worst! although I am only a few semesters away from graduating with a 3.8 GPA or better, I absolutely regret going here. I wish I could change my alma mater. I am ashamed of being a "soon to be" graduate from this school. I will NEVER recommend this place to a prospective student. I have NO desire to ever participate in any Trinity related alum activities... If they ever reach out to me, I will do all I can to NOT use profanity when saying "HELL NO!"

Hiwot Tadesse: the worst school i have ever been to. All they care about is the money they get from you. the staff are no help at all. community collage appears to be better. the professors are good but the people in the office are rude and mean and all they do is sit around while they drink coffee and talk about their personal life. for any question i asked the answer i got was "I dont know". i am glad i left when i had the chance.

n Jjo: I really thought coming to this school I was going to thrive and get my degree. However after coming here my experience is bad, the counselors here don't know how to help you. There are multiple things I could say about this school, however simply put this school is horrible. After barely finishing my first year here, I have fallen into a deep state of depression. Do not go here unless you live off campus, and even then make sure it is your last option .I have been going here and am finally about to transfer to Montgomery college just to get away from this school. Please listen and do not go here.

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!!
