How to Choose an English School in the USA Part 1

Students should ask questions to avoid problems and misunderstandings.

Students should be able to choose their school based on honest, accurate and current school, program and cost information.

Asking proper questions will help students save money, save time, lessen culture shock, and choose the best school and study program based on their unique student needs and preferences.

You can use the following Example Questions to Ask to confirm ESL School ownership, management and qualifications.

Questions should be answered accurately by school representatives or agents. If the answer is different than the printed information in the school contracts then you must get the changes in writing by the agent and confirmed in writing by the school.

Remember if your school contract is not in writing with all the terms and conditions and student rights then you may have no chance to change your school or program or get a refund.

QUESTIONS ABOUT SCHOOL OWNERSHIP

School ownership is important. It is important to know if the school is owned by some fast buck shyster out to make as much money as he can as quickly as he can or by professional educators who have invested decades of teaching and educating experience and all the latest educational resources into their well established school.

It is also important to know if you are dealing with local ownership who are directly accountable for the school or is the school a tiny tiny little cog in a huge face-less multi-layer corporation where the managers can hide when there are problems.

Who owns the school?

Does the owner set school policy and operations?
Do the owners have formal university with education as their major?
Are the owners American? or another country?
What language do the owners speak

QUESTIONS ABOUT SCHOOL MANAGEMENT

It is also important to know if you are dealing with local management who are directly accountable for the school or is the school managed by long-distance removed managers who can hide when there are problems.

Who manages the school?

Are the managers in the USA or another country?
Does the manager set school policy and operations?
Do the managers have formal university with education as their major?
What language do the managers speak?

This is Part 1 in a series "How to choose the best ESL English school"
