ENGLISH EDUCATION PROGRAM IN MISSOURI WESTERN UNIVERSITY

They have very cheap tuition and a good English program. It's also close to home so I don't have to stay in the dorms. I also was able to get a good job on campus at the library. There's a commuter center, too, where I can get food and coffee.


Course Curriculum - 

It is very good. I am learning a lot here and my English and writing skills are improving a lot. My professors are very good at their job and are doing a lot to make sure I succeed. There is also free tutoring, which is very, very helpful.
