"When I was awarded a full scholarship from Kuwait University to earn my MA and Ph.D. degrees from the US, I realized it would be impossible to achieve this goal without good English. Without it, I could not be a competitive student in the program. Taking classes with ELI for one year sharpened my skills and provided me with tools and determination to accomplish my dream of being an archaeologist. Not only did advanced and mini courses improve my skills in speaking English fluently, but they helped me in designing real projects and conducting research, and involved its students with the academic environment, which qualified me for the Master's program at WSU. After 3 years, I am now a Ph.D. student at University of South Florida, and I am so glad I was part of the ELI program because it helped me turn my dreams into achievements".
