Buenos Aires, Argentina
I came to Maui in 2008, where I became a full time student at MLI. Even after I finished the program, I went back to brush up, especially in writing. It gave me the tools for writing, critical thinking, grammar, and the ability to function in American society. I met people from around the world, and no matter where I go, when I return to Maui, the MLI "ohana" (family) is always there to greet me.
I came to the United States because I was in university in China and needed a change. I decided to come to Maui because I heard about MLI from friends in China, and I love Maui's endless summer and beautiful views. At first I was nervous about speaking and listening. Also, I was worried about my classmates. But it's been easy to make close relationships and have a lot of friends. Also, I feel really safe here and the people are good and kind. One of the things I like most about MLI is the grammar classes. The teachers are easy to talk to and they like to help you. On Maui, I like to shop and go to the beach. I also like singing... anywhere! When I finish MLI, I want to major in Accounting at UHMC. Coming to MLI was the right choice for me. It has changed my life.
Another Successful Rainbow Studies
The Maui Language Institute recently wrapped up a busy and successful Rainbow Studies program, with students participating from many countries around the world. Two Japanese groups also joined us from Koriyama and Miyakojima!
The program filled up quickly, so for 2013, we have extended it by a week to be able to accommodate more students. Join us at the Maui Language Institute (UHMC) from July 22rd – August 8th, 2013 for exciting classes full of new and dynamic ways to attack those speaking and listening blues!
Rainbow Studies introduces Maui and the Hawaiian culture to you in an enjoyable, informative and interactive series of seminars and excursions. Mornings focus on practical English communication skills, while afternoon classes offer preparation for each day's excursion.
Different "living classroom" (seminars/excursions) are featured each week and include activities and field trips such as Hawaiian crafts and music, the Maui Ocean Center, a beach barbecue, and outrigger canoe paddling. Participants may sign up for one, two or three weeks.
The Rainbow Studies program has also been popular with Maui's local residents who have signed up relatives visiting from other countries. Don't miss this chance to make new friends and get in touch with the local culture of our beautiful tropical island!
