IEC@DVC Students say:

After IEC, I went to DVC and transferred to University of California, Berkeley and majored in mechanical engineering. After graduation, I am lucky enough to find my first job as a mechanical engineer in a startup. I am now working on fire and gas detector design and development for oil and gas company in Silicon Valley. I am glad that IEC provides me a good English foundation. I still remember when I first come to US, and I cannot really write or speak English. It is magnificent to see the difference from that day and now

It’s really easy to make friends here, there are so students from all over the world here, it’s amazing. My roommates are from all different nationalities, so we can only communicate with each other in English, but we still manage to have deep conversations, which has been great!

I would like to major in International Business in UC Berkeley. IEC offers a great environment for me to improve my English fast. I learn Academic English which will be useful for my major. I have lots of opportunities to speak English with my classmates from other countries.
