Yale Testimonials

Santiago spent wonderful days at the summer camp and he also learned very well the English language. Many friends asked us about our experience with you and we say that it is not only wonderful, it is trustable. Sorry that I do not have more kids!

Bolivian mother. Son went to Yale, 2017

This summer I spent three fascinating weeks at Yale. An experience that stands out in my mind is my zip-line adventure at Brownstone. There was a zip-line to the water and using it seemed to be so dangerous when I had to jump from a rock to the air where only the line was holding and moving me. Then I felt very excited and satisfied when I saw the beautiful nature of Brownstone from the air and touched the water with my feet - that evoked amazing feelings. Another thing I can't forget is The Yale Art Gallery which we visited during the first week of the program. Some paintings and sculptures represented there truly amazed me. "Rooms for tourists" by Edward Hopper is the one I remember best because of it's contrast of darkness and electric light and contradiction of uneven forms of nature and the ideal form of architecture.  Also, I was lucky to be a part of a strong learning group. We had very educational and fairly interesting workshops where I learned how to describe art, musical genres and scientific inventions.  Lastly, the program gave me some friends from all over the world. I never felt lonely during the program which I appreciate and I still keep in touch with my new friends.

My favorite part of this program was that it served many unique classes which I can't take in Japan. My best memory was that we could make a lot of friends in foreign countries. I don't have opportunities which I communicate with foreigners in my country. I could know that communication skill is more important than speaking skill. It was very precious experience for me.

Aruha, 16, Japan, Yale, 2017

Staying at Yale was, for sure, the best experience of my life! All the staffs were very hardworking and supported me at all times! They made everything go perfect! The trips were very well organized and very exciting! We visited very cool places in Boston and NY. The best part for me was meeting people from other countries and learning about their culture. The classes were very dynamic and we spoke a lot about our countries, it wasn't a massive work. The hardest part was to say goodbye to my friends and the staffs. We made so good memories together and we were like a very big family. I hope I can go back to Yale someday!

Gabriella, 13, Brazil, Yale, 2017

CISL has brought me the best english learning experience I've ever had, so much so that things such as dreaming in English are now a common occurrence. We had some awesome trips to New York City and Boston, as well as fun evening acticivities and liberty to move around Yale in our free time.The staff was really friendly and tried their best to make the best of our time. The classes were pretty demanding, excellent to perfect your English once and for all. Every class was unique, it surpiresed me how I ended learning more from topics I thought I had already mastered.

Juan Carlos, 16, Spain, Yale, 2017

My favorite part was going to New York  City. It was wonderful to visit some popular places. I also like our lessons with Ted Talks, discussions about the future and debates were a really valuable experience. In addition, preparing a speech about work of art was also very interesting. I've learn a lot. And last but not least, I liked communicating with people so much. All of them were different and all of them were wonderful <3 Missing these great days!

Valeriia, 16, Ukraine, Yale, 2017

My favorite part was meeting new people (like my amazing class) and playing laser tag. It was really fun! I enjoyed playing games in the basement [gameroom] or or staying in the library with friends.
