Language Consultant Program

“As an international student, I owe a big part of my social life to the VISAS program. I have had some great times with my Language Consultants and other people I’ve gotten to know through VISAS. I have learned so much about the culture, people and last but not least, the English language.”

“I had the best experience with my Language Consultant, Radina, and I am so grateful for it. It feels like I made a new friend as well as improving my English and my confidence in my oral skills.”
