"It is my first experience in the United States and I enjoy studying at SC/GEOS Languages Plus. My English is improving everyday, the teachers are funny and the lessons are always interesting. It is also nice to study with students from different countries than mine. Los Angeles is such a big city there are so many places to visit, I'd like to stay here! My host family is so nice to me and helpful, she is like a mother to me." Tatiana Zanyatyeva (Russia)
"I'm Fabrizia and I'm from Italy. I went to LA to improve my English because I think that it is very important language for life and for work. Especially for work because I would work in the field of fashion and I need it so much. I'm learning English in SC/GEOS Languages Plus. Here they are all friendly and kind. In my classroom there are 4 other students. We are of different nationalities and this is very good and interesting because I can learn many things of their cultures. I feel good in this school and to learn the English is very funny. In Los Angeles I live with a family. They are kind and I was very well received. At home I stay with their children, it's very funny. I play with them and sometimes I teach them some words in Italian. Everything in America is fantastic. I love America." Fabrizia Laratta (Italy)
"I have been here for two weeks and studying in SC/GEOS Languages Plus LA is a great experience. My English is improving every day, it is good because it is really important for my life.

"Country is beautiful, but I hate that everything is so far and the bus are going every 20 minutes. Home stay, my family, is good. I don't have problems. School is nice. Teachers are great and they are helpful for our education. And about our free time, trips ok good. But maybe one time in month could have some bigger trip. I mean Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, and San Diego. But I am satisfied. I am enjoying time here. I really do." Tomas Jurik (Slovakia)
