"The IEM staff members do their best to create a friend-family like environment with students. Under the guidance of IEM staff members, I had the chance to interact and explore American culture with host families and American friends.

Despite of the fact that I already graduated from the program, the staff members are still my mentors and counselors. They’ve always been there when I’m in need. Come join the family if you are looking for a real American experience and a lifetime friend-mentorship."

“I would like to thank IEM for finding the right school and family. IEM listened to my suggestions and accommodated my needs when placing me with my host family and into a school. I enjoyed my time studying in San Diego and would recommend this lovely city to any new coming students.”
