00:00:21 00:00:25 Hi I'm Ted, I'm 24 years old and I'm from Belgium.
00:00:25 00:00:28 Irvine is in Orange County and Orange County is like really in the movies,
00:00:29 00:00:30 like a lot of palm trees everywhere,
00:00:30 00:00:33 really long beaches with white sands and blue water.
00:00:33 00:00:34 It's always nice weather over here.
00:00:35 00:00:37 Hollywood is also over here so it's a lot of fun!
00:00:38 00:00:42 Kaplan Irvine is on the campus from the Irvine Valley College
00:00:42 00:00:46 we can really feel here the American way of life, so its cool,
00:00:46 00:00:47 its amazing here!
00:00:48 00:00:51 When it comes to our teachers here they all are definitely qualified
00:00:51 00:00:53 and they are very well experienced
00:00:53 00:00:57 and they have worked with international students in the USA or overseas.
00:00:57 00:01:00 Students can definitely find what they are looking for
00:01:00 00:01:02 in terms of their classes here at Irvine.
00:01:03 00:01:06 There's always a lot of interaction and the teachers are always here
00:01:06 00:01:10 to help you if you have some trouble with exercises or pronunciation skills,
00:01:11 00:01:13 there's no problem because they are always there for you.
00:01:14 00:01:18 Because our centre is located on a campus, the students have access
00:01:18 00:01:22 to all the campus facilities. They can use the library.
00:01:22 00:01:25 The library has many different computers.
00:01:25 00:01:28 They can also use student cafeteria,
00:01:28 00:01:31 they can use student services centre, they can play tennis,
00:01:32 00:01:35 and they can even join the cheer leading team on campus.
00:01:37 00:01:38 Hey welcome to my homestay!
00:01:39 00:01:42 My homestay is actually quite close to Kaplan College.
00:01:42 00:01:45 This is the living room, I really like chilling out over here
00:01:45 00:01:48 and watching some DVDs and stuff like that.
00:01:50 00:01:51 This is my room check it out.
00:01:52 00:01:55 It's really great because you really have the atmosphere of a family,
00:01:55 00:01:58 you get to speak English everyday and they're always very friendly
00:01:58 00:02:02 and you're like interacting all the time, it's really nice.
00:02:02 00:02:05 At Kaplan you also have a lot of activities for the students,
00:02:05 00:02:06 you have for example Potluck.
00:02:06 00:02:10 Potluck is actually an activity where a lot of international students
00:02:10 00:02:13 come together and they bring their own kind of food from their home country.
00:02:13 00:02:16 So you can eat like Italian food or you can eat Asian food
00:02:17 00:02:19 or Korean food all kinds of food. It's really good!
00:02:22 00:02:25 With Kaplan you can go on a boat trip.
00:02:27 00:02:29 You get to see the dolphins and its like really amazing
00:02:29 00:02:32 because there's like a 100 of them all swimming along with the boat,
00:02:32 00:02:33 swimming really fast.
00:02:33 00:02:37 Yeah it's really nice because they jump in the water
00:02:37 00:02:41 and it's like you always just see that in the TV or something like that,
00:02:41 00:02:45 and now you see it and it's real, and so it's amazing!
00:02:50 00:02:51 There are a lot of beaches around here.
00:02:52 00:02:55 One of them I think is the most beautiful is Laguna Beach.
00:02:56 00:03:00 It's so nice there, I really love swimming in the sea and the waves are so big.
00:03:01 00:03:03 Its so amazing when you come out from the water
00:03:03 00:03:06 and you're sitting down and the sun goes down
00:03:06 00:03:12 and you look at the beautiful like a picture, the view is great!
00:03:13 00:03:15 Going to Kaplan College was actually a very good choice
00:03:15 00:03:19 because the atmosphere is great over here, we get to meet a lot of people
00:03:19 00:03:24 and my English is improving everyday actually with the exercises they give
00:03:24 00:03:27 and with the interaction, so its really great.
00:03:27 00:03:31 I'm really happy that I decided to come here because it's so nice
00:03:32 00:03:34 and the weather is so cool, sunshine everyday
00:03:35 00:03:38 and we make really strong friendships here.
00:03:38 00:03:40 My English has improved a lot since I'm here.
00:03:41 00:03:42 It's amazing here!
