The close proximity between students, instructors and staff makes it easy for students to relax and take classes in a home-like atmosphere where they can speak up, even for those who are shy and feel nervous about standing in front of others.

2. Extensive Staff Support

Students at CIS receive flexible and prompt support from not only instructors but also staff members. When living abroad, one may encounter many things that one does not understand or feel anxious about.
Being able to receive prompt and personalized support when something happens is very reassuring!
