What our students say about us

Kim Yeonsoo, Korean
“I’m a student at Enderun Colleges taking a degree-bound course ( a bridge course in preparation for colllege at Enderun). Although we cannot be physically present to take classes on campus, our instructors provide us with the best learning experience in our online classes through interactive platrforms, tools, and materials. Utilizing a learning management system called MATRIX LMS allows submission of class requirements, resource sharing, and easy access to all relevant materials. My teachers are very patient and flexible to adapt to our learning needs. I am very satisfied with the English program at Enderun Colleges, and l look forward to attend my remaining classes."
Lee Johee, Korean
“I took LANG 115 and LANG 120, preparatory college English classes at Enderun Colleges. In LANG 115, I studied the foundations of the English language wherein my teachers explained the concepts exhaustively using various examples. With the help of Teacher Vivienne and my classmates, I also improved my skills in literature. Then, LANG 120 built on the skills and knowledge learned in LANG 115, particularly in writing and in research wherein the instructors gave us individual feedback and allowed us to edit our work based on what we learned. This encouraged us to study harder and made us better prepared for regular college classes taught in English."
