I was only for two weeks there, but I loved it!
Most of the time I had private lessons.
The teachers were smart, cool and funny so I had a good time and I learned a lot.
But I also met some students from all over the world in my breaks that was awesome.
I enjoyed going to School there and definetly would recommend AIA to everyone.

The main problem was that the English proficiency of the students in the classes were not on the same level. The rooms were also too small for the classes.Show details » Read more...
Thank you for your feedback. All feedback is appreciated and we have done well to limit our class sizes now to make sure everyone gets the attention they need and deserve.
My personal experience in this school has been really good. The teachers are very professional, explain their classes for the people can understand. For me, have been a good experience and I think that my English in this month is better than the first day.Show details » Read more...
The classes are really good! The teachers are creative, patient, and kind! They explain clearly and with joy! The location is really good! But they don't have a private parking lot! But it's not a problem! They always do something to unite the students! Games, parties, etc. It was remarkable! I liked this school so much! I recommend checking it out!Show details » Read more...
It was a nice experience, even if very short. I studied there only for two weeks, so I can't say a lot about the school. The teachers are so good and kind. The lessons are good, but I think that it will be better if there were more conversations and when the students are talking the teacher correct them. The location is right, above all, for the guys that live in west campus.
However it was great, and I met a lot of students.
We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.
If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.
Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $50 when you register.
Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.
Please note that we do not book flights for our students. If you are researching airfare costs, we recommend using Kayak.com, a search engine that lets you compare flight options from your home country to Austin based on your budget, schedule and preferences.
