Before coming here, I heard that Arizona was a very hot place and that this hot weather would be worse from June to August. As soon as I arrived in Tucson, I was surprised at even hotter weather than I expected. I was very worried about my future here. After beginning my study, however, I was moved by the kind friends and faculty at CESL. CESL teachers and students actively cooperate with each other. CESL helps students adjust to U.S. life and culture as well as improve language skills. While at CESL, I improved my English and survival skills in the U.S. and turned my impression of Arizona from a negative one to a positive one.
