Featured Alumni

Buenos Aires, Argentina

I came to Maui in 2008, where I became a full time student at MLI. Even after I finished the program, I went back to brush up, especially in writing. It gave me the tools for writing, critical thinking, grammar, and the ability to function in American society. I met people from around the world, and no matter where I go, when I return to Maui, the MLI "ohana" (family) is always there to greet me.

Featured Student

Wen Cai
Hebei, China

I came to the United States because I was in university in China and needed a change. I decided to come to Maui because I heard about MLI from friends in China, and I love Maui's endless summer and beautiful views. At first I was nervous about speaking and listening. Also, I was worried about my classmates. But it's been easy to make close relationships and have a lot of friends. Also, I feel really safe here and the people are good and kind. One of the things I like most about MLI is the grammar classes. The teachers are easy to talk to and they like to help you. On Maui, I like to shop and go to the beach. I also like singing... anywhere! When I finish MLI, I want to major in Accounting at UHMC. Coming to MLI was the right choice for me. It has changed my life.
