« Ja ich denke ich habe Fortschritte erzielt. Vor allem beim Sprechen und Verstehen. Allerdings ist dies sicherlich auch damti verbunden, dass ich in der Freizeit während meines Sprachaufenthaltes sehr viel Englisch gesprochen habe und kein einziges Mal Deutsch. »

Le fait d'être presque le seul européen était tres enrichissant pour moi. Mais j'aurais beaucoup aimé rencontrer plus de gens partageant la MM culture....une majorité d'arabes-musulmans n'est pas pas vrmt le profil type pour faire la fête et aller à la rencontre des américains ! Cependant l'ambiance était excellente.

Testimonials

Diane Lamy
Diane Lamy

The classes seem long when you see the schedule but it goes by very quickly because the teachers use interactive - yet not childish – methods! There are few French students, which is a bad and a good point! A bad point, because some languages, like Korean, are well represented and I sometimes feel a little lonely. But it is a good point too because everyone is very welcoming and it forces me to speak English all the time. Washington is a huge city and even after spending 1 month and a half here, I discovered some new places! It is quite easy to find your way through the city; anyway, in Washington (like in New York, which I also visited), when people see you are lost, they come to help you!

Host family
Staying with a host family is the ideal option for discovering the American culture while practising your English on a daily basis. The families are selected with care and live around 40-60 minutes away from the school by bus. You will stay in a double or single room (twins available if you’re travelling with a friend) with breakfast only or half board provided. You’ll share the lifestyle of your host family and will get to know their traditions and habits.

DC Metro shared apartments (ages 18 and over)
These 2-3 bedroom apartments are located a 25-minute bus ride from Kaplan Washington. You’ll stay in a double or single room and you’ll share the bathroom and equipped kitchen with other students, as well as the dining and study areas. Free Wi-Fi, cleaning service, bed linen and towels are included.
