    Long Term

    Rated 4 out of 5

    I have been at LAL Fort Lauderdale for four months. When I arrived I couldn't speak any English and I didn't have any confidence. Now I think I have improved a lot in four months. I can speak to my friends and I don't get scared when I meet American people anymore.

    The best things about studying at LAL Fort Lauderdale are the great new friends I've made, the fabulous opportunties I've had to speak English, and moreover, the fun I've had! The school has many students from all around the world, so I've learnt a lot about other country's cultures! It is such a nice experience for me. Whenever I meet people from another country, I am so excited. Now I have a lot of friends from all over the world. I enjoy doing many things with my new friends. My time at LAL Fort Lauderdale will be an amazing memory!

    General English

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I love my classes because I work with students from many parts of the world. My English has improved very much. Before I came, I was afraid to speak and now I feel very comfortable speaking English.

    I have gone on several excursions offered by the school: the Everglades National Park, Key West, and shopping centers. They were great.

    Exam Preparation

    Rated 4 out of 5

    Before coming here I decided to choose the extended intensive course because I had learned some English in school, but I was very “blocked” every time I tried to speak. Now, after 3 months here at LAL School in Fort Lauderdale I can say that it was a very good decision.

    When I arrived here I was in an upper-intermediate level, after one month thanks to the intensive course, I moved to the advanced level and began to speak more fluently. My course is divided into 3 classes, the first one focuses on grammar, the second focuses on vocabulary, speaking & reading and the third is a conversation class. Every month I change my teacher and this has been very helpful in understanding all different forms of the American accent.

    I came here to improve my English because I needed it for my job and I think I would even be ready for some certificate courses, such as Cambridge. I hope to someday continue my education in New York; earning a Masters Degree. This is my American dream!!

    General English

    Rated 5 out of 5

    I chose to come to LAL Fort Lauderdale because I knew that attending a general English course would help me improve my knowledge of such an important language.

    The LAL Fort Lauderdale classes have given me the opportunity to speak everyday to nice teachers and people from other countries that are also here to learn and improve.

    Now that I am here I am proud of the choice I made I can compare myself with other students at the same level and spending time with them everyday is the best way to learn English.

    My class has given me the chance to learn at an advanced level and this is so helpful for me in my future studies at a university and when I enter the working world, where English is becoming more and more important.
