"ALI is not only a safe place with a friendly environment to improve my English language skills for academic purposes, but also a place with people who are always support you to pursue your academic goals. I learned about different cultures while exploring campus life! ALI prepared me to be a part of the real academic world, and I always feel grateful to be an ALI student before stepping into the real world."
