From the first time I opened the door at LIT, I have been given the best help any student can hope for. Ms. Susan & Mr. Tim made me feel at ease & guide me efficiently. I am super happy with the low cost of the tuition. Along with the strong grammar basis in the lower levels, LIT concentrates on student-centered & communication skill-centered English learning.All the LIT teachers have been amazing to me. They are kind & encourage the students to use English in many different and unique ways.I am so happy with great teachers & good friends in LIT! I strongly recommend LIT if you are looking for good English school.

My experience with LIT has always been a lot of attention & affection. From the beginning, when I looked for the school to get my F1 status, I was treated very well & all documents very well explained. They helped me to obtain my F1 status & also provided me with an excellent education of the English language. I went to LIT because they offer an affordable price to study, but when I started attending classes, I saw how much they became a family for me. All the people involved, like administration, cafeteria, teachers, security, everyone is always treated with a lot of respect. As we are going through difficult pandemic period, the school continues to support me in many ways. They do not treat me as just a student, but as a member of the LIT family. I have been studying for two years at LIT & completing the TOEFL prep course. I can say that when I finish my program, I will miss all the family that always gave me affection and attention when I needed it most.I am so happy with great teachers & good friends in LIT! I strongly recommend LIT if you are looking for good English school.

In my experience at LIT, I can say that it has been the best ESL school I've attended.When I first came to this school, I didn't really understand anything, and I couldn't communicate in English. But thanks to the excellent teachers, I can say today that my progress is wonderful and I can understand and I can defend myself.One of the best things that LIT has is the kindness of each teacher, the desire & passion that they have to teach each one of us which made me eager to learn more every day.I am so happy with great teachers & good friends in LIT! I strongly recommend LIT if you are looking for good English school.

LIT is one of the best selections if you want to continue your English education. I have been studying here since one and half years ago. I was studying at another one when I came to the USA, and I see the difference between studying at LIT and other schools. Now, I have been accepted to a university for Spring 2016. LIT has good instructors who can help you in your study and a nice environment that will help you to improve your language. They have a nice facility that contains a gymnasium, computer rooms, and a very nice café. Also, students take an interesting and fun trip every session.Indeed, I enjoy my time here, so I learn and enjoy in the same time.

At LIT, the staff is very professional, and the teachers are very kind and helpful. When I first came to LIT, I did not know much English, and I began at level 1. Now I am at level 6 and well on my way to complete the program soon. I have received some awards and prize money for good grades as well. They also gave me a part-time job at the school which allowed me to receive the US social security number. LIT helps me whenever I need something and even when it is not directly related to school, and I am very thankful to be here.

I have been studying at LIT for one and half years now and am very happy with the school’s support & helpfulness. When I first came to LIT, due to some communication issues, I was terminated by the previous school. I was devastated and worried but LIT helped me with reinstatement immediately. They kept up with the process, and when it came to send more documents, they were on top of the things. I was so relieved to receive my reinstatement. I will be moving on to a university soon but I will always be grateful for the help I received from LIT.

When I applied at LIT, I had B1/B2 visa. LIT helped me with the status change process from the beginning to the end. I didn’t know what to prepare or how to do but they helped me through the whole process and I received the F-1 visa. I really enjoy going to school - great teachers, great environment and the teachers are really helpful and explain in a way that everyone can understand. Really recommend this school.

I have been studying at LIT for six months. If you are looking for an ESL school in Houston, I strongly recommend LIT. I already had experience with another ESL school in Dallas. That is why I can tell which ESL school you need to study at. First of all, I could find which level I need to study in. LIT is divided into eight levels. It has been really helpful for me what I need to learn. It makes me concentrate on studying. Plus, the online assignments from my teachers are very valuable so I can always review them every day. When I felt overwhelmed in my class, I always ask my teacher to get some advices. My teachers are experienced and dedicated to students. There is no doubt and no hesitation when I am asked, "Your English skills will be improved a lot after you study at LIT."
