Testimonials

The teaching methods in the class and the immersion were very good for me.  I have enjoyed all of the cultural experiences with my fellow students and especially with my host.

I love this language school.  I wanted to improve my English grammar and my spoken English and I did.

Ziqi, Student, China English Immersion: Everyday Conversation and Culture

I made the correct choice.  This course was a real immersion into American culture.  That was simply the perfect way to improve my skills in English. Now I am so comfortable starting a conversation in English!

I came with the objective of preparing for my future.  And I got it!

Hernando, Banker, Colombia English Immersion: Communication for Business

Penobscot School's program met my expectations.  I learned English and had daily practice with English speakers during various activities.  I took the Communication for Business program.  Everything was very professional.  It was amazing!

Soumia, PhD Candidate, Morocco English Immersion: Communication for Business

Over the years the wonderful international network generated by the Penobscot School has totally captured me. My classmates and I go to class together, have lunch together once a week, and have a delicious potluck dinner once a month in the kitchen at the school. I now have had about 12 teachers from Italy. Many are good friends whom I visit and with whom I correspond. I would never have these beautiful friends and the ability to enjoy the wonderfully written Italian novels and short stories if it weren’t for Penobscot School.

Bob Foreign Language Classes: Italian

I have studied three languages at Penobscot School: French, Spanish, and Russian, all at different levels. I have found the instruction to be superb and the camaraderie is a real plus.

Judy Foreign Language Classes: French, Russian, Spanish

I spent three magic weeks in Maine and brought back an experience I’ll never forget.

In my view, the school has a huge impact in the community. The school lets the community know about other cultures and bring people who care about people together.

The daily contact was profoundly important to improve my spoken fluency in English language! Interestingly, when I was returning to Brazil, I phoned the airplane company and they thought I was American!

The program was very educative and included both practical and theoretical lessons.

Yves, U.S. Consulate, Ivory Coast English Immersion: Communication for Business

I knew that I needed a boost and got it from this program. It is a 24/7 English environment that really works. There have been amazing presentations and great volunteers and the teachers bring their skills and soul to the program. My biggest improvement is in listening skills. Now I catch myself when I start to make a mistake.

Michael, Computer Technology, Russia/Canada English Immersion: Everyday Conversation & Culture

This experience is different because it’s not only about having lessons. It’s more than that! We are integrated into the community. This motivates us to use our English all the time.

Pepa, English Teacher, Spain English Immersion: Everyday Conversation & Culture

My personal goal was to be involved in everyday life. For me this was accomplished. You are taking classes but it is so smooth that you don’t feel like you’re learning!
