What do our students think?

"This was my first exchange program and also my first time abroad I think the program really has exceeded my expectations. I see a great job that has been done by Exeter College. I really improved my listening skills of English, and also, beyond my expectations I improved my speaking skills, because prior to my arrival I was very insecure about it. The English classes are excellent, the methodology of learning it's very helpful."
