Student Testimonials:
"I think it is impossible to write all my best memories of WAL because there's not enough space!!!! I've already recommended WAL to all my friends. I told them this is the best school where they can get excellent knowledge!!!"
-Dmitriy (Russia)

"Even though I only attended WAL for three months, I really felt that my English ability developed a lot. That was because everyone helped me so much. There were many difficult assignments I had to do; however, I succeeded. The director was so kind to me in assuring that I could succeed. I was so shy when I first started and so frightened but the calmness of the director in explaining things to me and taking the time to speak with me about my concerns made me feel so comfortable at the school......The student advisor helped me get into the college and choose a major. Now I will graduate from college with my AA degree this March with great confidence all of which was developed by the caring people at WAL."
-Kumiko (Japan)
