It was amazing because attending the English classes not only gives you the ability to speak or to listen or write better, but also you meet people from all over the globe in the same situation as you. I would say that this program brings you not only growth in your professional life, but also in your personal life. I would really like to highlight that, in particular, UT Austin made me a stronger person. Facundo Miret , 2021 English Language Center Student
