Anna explains how Kaplan study boosted her radio career

Anna from Russia is one of thousands of happy students Kaplan has put on the path to success over the years. Here’s what she has to say about how her Kaplan studies come in useful every day in her exciting radio career:

I work for the Moscow radio station, Business FM, where being able to speak English well is a must. Studying at Kaplan’s Chicago Downtown School really improved my English; now I could easily chat in English all day long!

I visited Kaplan’s Chicago school twice, as I loved the city so much, and I still want to go back again. First I joined Kaplan’s Intensive English language course in 2009 to maximise my integration into English culture, which helped me break the so-called ‘language barrier’. In 2010 I studied a General course to refresh my English, and I now use my English skills at work to interview lots of foreign speakers.

I chose Kaplan because they’re well known in the English courses abroad sector and got back to me immediately when I enquired about the course. I’m glad I chose them, as my teacher, Sharon Pines, was the greatest English teacher I’ve ever had! Her lessons were useful and not at all boring – I learnt a lot.

I loved the school’s computer facilities and convenient central location, which was great for sightseeing and transport links. I got to experience incredible festivities in Millennium Park, plus Green Mill and the fresh air of the marvellous Lake Michigan. I met many amazing friends here and have kept in touch with almost everyone through Facebook and Skype.

I stayed in I-House in a beautiful area near Hyde Park and the University of Chicago and I loved it! I didn’t have any problems during my stay, but if I did, I’m sure Kaplan staff would’ve helped me solve them.

So would I recommend Kaplan International Colleges? Sure I would! Hey everybody, go to Kaplan’s Chicago Downtown School!
