Open quotesI came as a visitor scholar from China to Columbia University. It was very challenging for me to make academic communications and to write my first English paper. After 5weeks of studying, I understood the academic paper structure and how to write the right type of English paper. I can read and write research papers more easily now. I'm not scared to communicate with local academic professors and experts. IRLP helped me a lot. I am very lucky I can resign the IRLP classes when I arrive in the US for the new semester research. The teachers are very nice, professional, and beautiful. This made me feel very pleased and interested in English writing and conversation learning, it's very helpful and also an amazing experience for my visiting the US.Close quotes
