Even better, most of these activities are free.
Cultural and social activities help you learn English faster by giving you a chance to practice your language skills in a real-life context, while networking and enjoying US culture.
Student activities are open to all students. We meet in the cafeteria at 1:30.
Below is a sample of some of the activities inlingua® students have done over just the past 12 months…
Studying English at inlingua was the best experience ever in my life! Initially, our group was supposed to accomplish our exchange in Los Angeles, California, but for some reason, the agency had changed our destination to Washington DC. I admit that we were kind of upset because we were so dazzled with the opportunity to visit the Walk of Fame and see the Hollywood sign. However, soon we began to believe that we could be underestimating Washington DC. As we arrived and our English classes began, we realized we were completely wrong to think that studying in DC would be less interesting than it would be in LA or any other American city. DC is a wonderful city! There is a magnificent political background that gave us the possibility to learn a lot through the museums and historical monuments. We studied at inlingua in their English immersion program for the entire month of June, so, while Brazil was receiving the world to hold the 2014 World Cup, inlingua received our Brazilian group in a very nice way. The inlingua staff and teachers seemed so happy to have us there, and we felt very welcome. While studying at inlingua, we had a great time and learned a lot of English, and we were also in contact with many cultures! It was like being able to visit the whole world, not only North America. At Inlingua you can meet and learn a lot about people from all over the world. I met people from Colombia, Bolivia, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, Lithuania, many places! That’s so fascinating for me! I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to live this experience in DC with Inlingua and have learned as much as I could!

"When I have chosen Inlingua I was looking for a school that could help me to get more conversation. Lessons are dynamic. Lessons are different all days. Teachers are qualified, helpful and friendly. They stimulate conversation in different ways. Teachers assign homework and they check and correct them in class together. Tests and spelling words help to remember what we have studied in class. Location is close to Rosslyn metro station. Good and strategic position. I met good classmates. Time of the lesson flies away..... Desks are a little bit small....perhaps I grew too much!"

No matter how much time I spent on thinking how to describe my experience at Inlingua, at Washington DC, it is not enough !! I remember when I first came here I was brusque and reticent due to my culture shock. later then I tried to fight it and cope with the society. one year later, that shy guy become gregarious and so talkative.
If anyone asked for my advice on where to come to study in USA, I`d say DC without hesitation. Here I saw the four seasons in regard to the climate, here I visited more the 10 museums, and learn about more then culture. here the people are used to see international student so they are more able to understand you and be open minded about you.

Bruna, student from Brazil October 8, 2015
I went to the school Monday morning at November the 24th. I took the test and 5 minutes later I was placed at a course on level 5. I was on the course for only 2 weeks and had an 18 hour scheduled week. From the moment that I went in to the classroom I felt I already was a part of the class.
The students were from all over the world, for instance one from Yemen, one from Saudi Arabia, one from Korea, one from Russia, one from Peru, another from Thailand, and me I was from Greenland. Our teacher made us have some good and interesting debates, about different topics.
We went to a museum and for me it was a good experience to hear and see about the Native Americans' life from the late 18th century until now.
The only thing that I did not liked was, that some of the students arrived very late to the course.

Classes were very interesting and included many activities. My teacher Diana was perfect. I liked the location of the school building. Activities were very interesting.

I would like share my experiences at Inlingua. I have been studying for one year at Inlıngua. I’ve almost taken all classes of Inlingua so, I’ve improved my English skills step by step. Actually, I am the best example of students because I have been educated by many different teachers. I would like say something about my teachers. In my opinion, Inlingua teachers have great experience in teaching. First of all, I don’t want to discriminate my other teachers but I would like to thank to Mr. Jack, Mr. Joseph and Mrs. Patrica from here. Because they weren’t only my teacher, they were also my friends. Otherwise, as an international student I needed a bunch of paper at many times. But I was lucky because I have Inlingua’s friendly adviser Mrs. Nora. I am appreciative to lady Nora.
I mean; Inlingua is a such a nice language school. I shared my personal opinion with you guys. If you have any chance, you should visit Inlingua and you can see yourself..

Hi there, I want to tell you all how beautiful this English school is and how this school helped me to learn English. If you want to learn English, that's the school you should be in, mostly because they always bring opportunity to practice and improve your English. The most exciting things are the activities, no matter what your religion is, they always let you in the activities so you can feel a part of it. The best thing that I like about this school is that whenever we have a problem no matter how small it is, they help with it until the problem is solved.
About the host family, I am going to tell you that it's the best thing to make your English better and sound like an American. There is some problem you may have with them, but they are always interested in solving it. The best of all of them is Nadia H. The teachers are always helping you with doubts that you may have, something you would like share with them, they are always available.
I have not introduced myself, my name is Antonio Ngua Nguema Among from Equatorial Guinea, mostly called Toni Parker, I am the new ambassador from this school and I recommend you all this school, the fist time in United States, I came without knowing English, but now that I have been here for 6 month, I consider myself a professional English speaker.

Inlingua is a very good language school. The classes are very interesting, the teachers are prepared to deal with students of other languages. The location is very good, close to the metro station Rosslyn. I liked so much this experience there.
Michell, student from Brazil October 8, 2015
I have been studying at inlingua for a while, I have had the opportunity to meet many people and I got very good friends in this school. I made the decision to study here because since the first day that I came to Washington, D.C. a couple of years ago, I loved it, and I thought it was the best place to learn English. I've been part of many school activities, I was student ambassador for a while and it helped me to improve my English. I met more people and I had direct contact with teachers, staff, and students. It was an excellent experience. Sharing with different people, learning about their cultures, and making new friends, it was a great opportunity for me. I've learned more about the history of the United States thanks to Inlingua. All the activities that they do, and teachers who in each class take a few minutes to explain something new of the country helped me to understand and knew things that I had not learned. I don't have complaints about this institute, staff, and teachers have been excellent people. If you have the opportunity to come to this country and learn English, inlingua is a good option to learn, make friends and explore the city.

First of all, Inlingua has an excellent quality of teaching which is why I will definitely recommend this school. Secondly, I used to live with a host family. My family was very great and friendly, my host mum was always asking me about what do I want for dinner. I had a big room with my own bathroom and also a living room, my own house key so I could leave whenever I wanted, I felt at home. Furthermore, Inlingua has an excellent location in Arlington just near the Metro Station and some restaurants. However, Inlingua doesn't allow coffee in the classroom and if you are 10 min late you will be marked absent. But finally, I definitely recommend this school because of its quality of teaching, its location and its Host Family program
