Honestly, the ESL Academy is one of the best educational institutions I have ever studied in. The friendly special staff who work their are what makes the ESL Academy an awesome place to study in. Because of their kindness, students are always welcomed to ask for help and feel respected. However, some students block the corridors and make so much noise during the breaks, and this really bothers me. Another thing that I don't like is the listening and speaking course. Although it has helped me to better take notes, I still don't feel that this course helps me to speak better. Particularly, in daily life conversations. In other words, we are not going to debate with everyone we meet. How to easily communicate and begin a normal conversation with others is what this course should focus on more. Thank you the ESL Academy for all the happy moments you have added to my life!

One of the best schools I've attended. Excellent location in downtown Denver with access to various restaurants, shops and transportation if you don't drive. Staff members are very friendly and helpful even with matters outside the school. Teachers are smart and kind, they will answer all your questions. There are also tutors who can help you with your homework. Students come from many different countries with different languages which creates a good opportunity to practice your english and learn about other cultures. One thing I don't like is that it's very HOT inside the classroom, and some classes are small with too many people which makes breathing a challenge! Other than that it's GREAT

I'm a student at the ESL Academy Level 5. Furthermore, I'm going to honestly evaluate the ESL Academy in concepts of location, teachers, and the building in general. First, the location is perfect because it's in the Downtown Denver close to everything and close to the light rail convenient to students who don't have cars. In addition, teachers are very helpful, best teachers for grammar are; Ms. Elliot, Ms. Stein, and Ms. Fisher. For reading and writing Ms. Idrees. Finally, the school environment in general is very comfortable and inspires students to learn, and so clean. In conclusion, I hope the best for the ESL Academy.

4/5 because nothing is perfect. Pros: Amazing and helpful teachers and staff. Phenomenal place near the 16th street mall for access to resraurants, shops, and much more. Ask unlimited sensible questions and no one will say anything. Private place to pray and prayer mats which is highly appreciated. No discrimination. Cons: Some classes may be a hot and no A/C which affects concentration. Some classes feel rushed and not well-organized. Far from the CU Denver campus and its library but there are buses available. The private place is sometimes loud due to students and music and hard to pray in. If the place could only be quiet from 11 to 12 that would be perfect.

I have worked with the ESL Academy for over 3 years and throughout my experience I would say that above all else, the teachers and administration care deeply about the curriculum and success of every student. Students who complete studies at the ESL Academy transition into University life much easier and with increased confidence in their understanding of academic English.
