  • Americans and the American way of life fascinate students worldwide. They are bombarded by it everyday …on TV, Radio, the Internet…and they want to experience it first-hand.
  • International parents consider it a priority to expose their children to other cultures and lifestyles, in order to become truly global citizens.
  • Speaking English is essential in today's world and is fast becoming a universal language both on and off-line.
  • And the U.S. represents one of the world's finest models of democracy and freedom. Now, more than ever, international students want to understand and experience these principles for themselves, so they, too, can make a difference in the future.
