Our instructors encouraged us not only to improve our English, but they also helped us learn the characteristics of various cultures in the U.S. They created an environment even outside of the classroom for us to improve our speaking.
I am still grateful for their positive and supportive attitudes.
I would say that learning English has [opened] so many doors for me and has brought me where I am now. I am not just talking about my professional life, but also my social life. Since I've learned English, I was able to build my network and met a lot of new people throughout those years.
The [AEP] teachers are just amazing and they have a great team always ready to help. When I joined the program it was hard for me at the time because I did not know the language, but after a while, I was already speaking and interacting with others. UTSA is forever part of my history, my career, and my life.
The AEP is such a great experience that you are going to remember forever. Coming here to the U.S. is way different, and it's easier to learn English than doing it in your own country. You are always, in a good way, forced to speak English, but you have around you a good community.
That’s the program, that’s exactly what the AEP is meant to be: a good community.
