- Awesome experience at ICC Hawaii!07/08/12
It was the best experience in my lifetime! It was the best choice to come to ICC Hawaii. I could study English with nice teachers and many foreign friends who came from Japan, Switzerland, France, and so on. The teachers were especially professional and
so nice, I've never seen that kind of teachers. They always helped me to improve my English skills, and I learned how American culture is different from my culture through studying. There are also many kind and helpful staff members, they always helped us the best they can. Studying English at ICC Hawaii was beyond my imagination because I could enjoy beautiful beaches, many delicious restaurants, and nice weather. One of good points about ICC Hawaii is they have variety activities, so we can join and enjoy surfing, sailing, cooking, and BBQ parties. I will never forget my many experiences that I had with my awesome teachers and friends. Downtown Honolulu location is away from the chaos of Waikiki, near sightseeing, shopping, and restaurants and easy to get to by bus.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
