“When I came at the beginning, I was not able to build my sentences correctly. However, I believe that the ESL Program at EMU has provided a lot to help me to improve my English language and prepared me to be more successful in my classes.”

Dian Mangiring Arika


"Since I came here I got the chance to meet students from different countries and was able to make new and interesting friends around the world at EMU and in the ESL program. I really enjoy and like that very much."
