"The ESL Program at Southwestern Adventist University was an amazing and great experience for me. Honestly, I never thought I could learn another language in another country far away from my family. This program allowed me to get to know people from around the world. The program provides a different learning experience which involves field trips, labs where you practice your listening and speaking skills and classes. The program helped me spiritually, allowing me to get to know God and build a relationship with Him. The environment is wonderful, the people are friendly, and the best thing is that everyone is willing to help you during your learning process. I have developed many friendships out of it and met my soulmate, my wife. The ESL program will give you so many memories you will never forget."

From Brazil

"The ESL Program at Southwestern Adventist University is simply unforgettable.  It was an amazing experience. We met great professionals who helped us learn English and students who always helped one another. Don’t expect to learn overnight. At Southwestern, you will be pushed and motivated to learn at a pace that is realistic to the American culture.  Trust in God first, motivate yourself and challenge your limits, and you WILL learn English. Southwestern and the ESL program will never be forgotten!"
