00:00:19 00:00:21 Hi I'm Anatoly, I'm from Colombia
00:00:21 00:00:22 and I'm 24 years old.
00:00:22 00:00:27 Hi my name is Maike, I'm from Germany and I'm 23 years old.
00:00:27 00:00:29 You can do a lot of things in Philly.
00:00:30 00:00:33 This is an old city. They have great architecture,
00:00:33 00:00:36 you can go sight seeing. I love it!
00:00:36 00:00:43 I love about Philadelphia is that it's a big city and there's a huge scene
00:00:43 00:00:47 of artists and musicians,
00:00:47 00:00:48 it's fun to live here!
00:00:49 00:00:52 The teachers in Philly are the best I think.
00:00:52 00:00:55 At first it's so hard because you're afraid to make mistakes,
00:00:56 00:01:01 but you have teachers that support you and you can improve your English
00:01:01 00:01:01 really fast in here.
00:01:02 00:01:05 The quality of my teaching staff is a priority to me.
00:01:05 00:01:09 Out of 23 KIC schools in the country we have been ranked number one
00:01:09 00:01:11 or number two in academics and we're very proud of that.
00:01:12 00:01:14 The centre itself is three floors,
00:01:14 00:01:19 we have you know silent study rooms, full computer labs, classrooms on all floors.
00:01:20 00:01:24 We have two accommodation options for students. One is the home stay option.
00:01:24 00:01:29 The main advantage of that is you actually stay with a family
00:01:30 00:01:31 in a suburban area around Philadelphia,
00:01:31 00:01:36 you get to see the US family life and you also receive meals,
00:01:36 00:01:38 and I think that might be one of the main attractions for students.
00:01:39 00:01:42 The other option is, right in the city, there's a residence called
00:01:42 00:01:43 International House.
00:01:43 00:01:47 I live in the residence and it's good to live there
00:01:47 00:01:52 because I can prepare my own food, and I can study when I want,
00:01:53 00:01:55 and I can meet other people when I want.
00:01:56 00:01:59 It's being in my own place and I really enjoy that.
00:02:00 00:02:06 It's great that Kaplan is located in the city of Philadelphia
00:02:07 00:02:10 because here are so many shops.
00:02:12 00:02:15 You have the main shopping street in front of Kaplan.
00:02:16 00:02:21 Terminal Market is also very close to Kaplan and that is great,
00:02:21 00:02:22 it's a very cool place!
00:02:23 00:02:26 In that place you can have fruit, vegetables.
00:02:27 00:02:28 You can buy fish.
00:02:28 00:02:31 You can get a really good cheese steak in there.
00:02:32 00:02:35 That is one of the most famous things here in Philly.
00:02:35 00:02:39 They make it in front of you, it's really good, its really traditional.
00:02:39 00:02:42 If you come to Philly you have to try it.
00:02:42 00:02:48 Kaplan Philadelphia organises very different and fun activities
00:02:48 00:02:53 like bowling at the Lucky Strike, it's a very cool place.
00:02:53 00:02:58 I love it to bowl! There are many big screens,
00:02:58 00:03:03 you can watch the baseball and when the Phillies playing
00:03:03 00:03:07 it's very exciting to be there. Yes I love it!
00:03:08 00:03:14 If you want to learn good English and you want to learn it fast
00:03:14 00:03:17 and be able to communicate with other people then I think you should come here.
00:03:18 00:03:23 You have the best teachers and the best atmosphere to learn English.
00:03:23 00:03:28 I would definitely recommend Philadelphia Kaplan to all of my friends
00:03:28 00:03:30 because I improved my English,
00:03:31 00:03:36 it helps you for the future and it's a wonderful experience to be here.
