I came to Maui through an exchange program at my university and stayed at MLI for four weeks. I was so worried about many things such as classes, food and living conditions. But I felt so happy right away because the people at MLI are very kind. Also the classes are so very interesting. I was also happy because I had only three classes a day. I could go back home by 2 o'clock and I had three days a week off. Because of this great schedule, I could see so much of Maui, and enjoy this beautiful island. This trip to Maui has had a great impact on me. I will study English harder, and I hope I can come back someday.
