Gracie's Success Story: From SVIEP to Cañada College to Top Universities
"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 2020: UC Berkeley, UCLA, Menlo College, and San Jose State University. SVIEP is the best way to learn English."
