Cohort 5, Oregon State University

I would like to say thank you very much to US Department of State, to IIE in New York, and to IIEF in Jakarta which have given me the chance to learn English in Oregon State University. I don’t know how to describe how excited I am everyday. Not only because I can go to the United, but the most important thing are the excellent programs that I got there in Oregon State University.
In this IELSP Program I can learn American culture, their social life, and other countries cultures. Yeah, it is absolutely and 100% correct that IELSP has opened my mind to the world
Being an International Student in Oregon State University, makes me understand more about cross culture worldwide. I have many friends from South Korea, Libya. North Africa, South Africa, China, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Brazil, Japan, and Kuwait. I learned many things from them, their countries, their education and we even shared about our major that hopefully can give contribution to my future. Generally, most of them are taking their Doctoral (PhD) and master degree there, so communicating with them could motivate us (especially motivates me) to take a higher degree in the future.

Cohort 3, University of Arkansas

Two months that I spent in Fayetteville was the best experience in my life, and I will never forget the things that I learned there. Two months experience has changed me a lot in many positive ways, I have improved my language capacity and personal life. I hope this kind of program can be continued in the future because this is a good program and it gives a lot of people more opportunity to learn American culture and language. Besides that, we stayed at a host family, and I am very thankful for that, because they showed me an America lifestyle and what a great family they are.

Ryza Aditya Pratama – Jember

Cohort 4, Ohio University

I have learned many things that changed me to be a better person. These two months gave me wonderful experiences not only about English but also about how much I learned about my own culture and American culture. About English, I have learned the American English in convenience class that increased my English ability. My curiosity and questions about American culture has been answered.
Before I arrived to the United States I just think that Americans are ignorant and they are individual and only have little time to interact and to talk with each other; but what I found in the first day and in the first week told me that it was wrong; they are so nice and welcoming me and my group.
The one of important thing that is not the same with some of my countries attitude is the punctuality. I found that Americans have a good commitment to keep their schedule in time, punctual, and arranged well. That attitude affects my own attitude and I am pretty sure that I will keep this good point of American culture.
