Student Testimonial.

"I had been a student at Q International School for a year and eight months before I became a graduate student at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. I came to the United States with less than basic English and now I am able to write research papers and give twenty minute speaking presentations. I attribute my success to a combination of desire, dedication and a good English school!"
