Gracie's Success Story: From SVIEP to Cañada College to Top Universities

Gracie"I benefited from the SVIEP program greatly. I started studying with SVIEP as a Level 2 student. The program improved my English proficiency and prepared me well for college. SVIEP helped me to build my confidence, and I am pleased with my progress. SVIEP has small classes so that I can communicate with professors and classmates frequently and closely. It is very crucial before studying in college and applying for universities. Now I have been working on a double major in Anthropology and Psychology at Cañada College and am really grateful to get admitted to the following universities in Fall 2020UC Berkeley, UCLA, Menlo College, and San Jose State University. SVIEP is the best way to learn English."
