NCS is the best - intensive tutoring

Testimonial: NSC was great, the best language course that I have taken. Exceeded every one of my expectations. They were always available for any questions or concerns. The staff made sure that you felt comfortable and happy and ensured that will you were under their care that you felt like family. I only had 3 months and wanted a customized program that would go a pace that was tailored to my needs and abilities. Additionally, I really liked the idea that they arranged everything from your...

Sallie Mae
Sallie Mae rips off the unemployed - Sallie Mae student loans

Sallie Mae , Wilkes Barre PA. I am unemployed, out of unemployment compensation, homeless and hungry. Sallie Mae calls 6-7s a day demanding a $400.00 payment. I called them to try and get qualified for some type of deferment and was told by customer service that I could do a zero income deferment for 25 years and then they would forgive the loan. I asked how this would affect my credit and was told it will not. I also told him I found it hard to believe that Sallie Mae was just forgiving loans...

Next Step China
Intensive Tutoring At Its Best

I really felt studying Chinese now would give me an advantage later in life and open up future opportunities. I choose Next Step China because the accommodations looked very nice as well as the private tutoring option that was available. I definitely recommend Next Step China. The website and service over the phone was great. I was absolutely shocked when I got here, the accommodation were nice the people were amazing a staff member picked us up at the airport with a nice big sign. Everything...

Next Step China
Best learning environment

I wanted to study Chinese in China because I get to experience it with native speakers. I get to talk to them and usually listen to how fast they talk and what kind of normal things they talk about each day. I’m doing a project about teaching Chinese, so I want to come here and ask opinions from other students who are also in this program. I also wanted to interview some of the teachers in Beijing in the University. This summer I went through NextStepChina teen program. I thought...

Sallie Mae
Sallie Mae is KILLING my generation's future! - Sallie Mae Federal and Private Loans

I made the biggest mistake of my life when, acting upon the belief that had been ingrained in me since early childhood that education was the key to a prosperous future, I pursued an undergraduate and graduate degree, both which required loans. I do not recall signing any paperwork with Sallie Mae , yet they somehow acquired several of my loans. I just graduated in August, and even before then they were saying I was late on my payments, that I needed to pay more than my monthly income per...

Next Step China
Excellent Opportunity.

I knew what I wanted before and it seemed like Next Step China checked off everything on that list that I wanted. It made my mom real comfortable that every time she would email somebody, a Next Step China staff member would email her right back. I signed up for the intensive tutoring program, so it%u2019s really one on one, and it%u2019s really great because you learn so much in so little time, and the Next Step China staff always gets involved in what you%u2019re doing and they won%u2019t...

Next Step China
I would give NSC 5 stars

I was looking for an efficient, but comfortable overall learning experience and that is what I received. The staff helped immediately when I experienced my sort of minor or major problems. They did a great job of fixing apartment issues if they ever came up. However, the best was when they had a little part for me for my birthday. I didn’t expect that from them at all! Of course, I would recommend NSC. They do an amazing job!...

Next Step China
Excellent

I signed up for NSC because I increasingly realize that proficiency in Chinese is really important. I learned it at school, but I just didn%u2019t think it was enough. I really wanted to better, to get ahead in class and I thought I might as well use the summer as an opportunity to do so. I really liked my tutor because we shared similar interest. I remember writing a questionnaire that I really liked literature. And my tutor happened to be a literature lover. Sometimes I know that%u2019s...

Edgenuity Worldwide
Edgenuity is a waste of time, not an effective learning tool - World History Survey Class, AP English

In several of my high school classes, the corporation Edgenuity's products have been used to replace teachers completely. Edgenuity is NOT an adequate replacement, and it has effectively wasted my time, left me frustrated and unhappy, and given me very little substantial knowledge. My first and biggest complaint is the content and the way it is taught. Every lesson has a collection of videos- about 10 videos that are 3-4 minutes long in length, interrupted by 2 or 3 questions. The videos...

Sallie Mae
Customer Service - Student Loan

Sallie Mae has been a thorn in my side since I first received money from them for college. What a mistake. I have come to terms that they are difficult to work with and am just dealing with it until I can get them paid off. However, every time I call in I am unsuccessful in reaching a conclusion with the issue at hand. Most recently, I had to be transferred three times because I could not understand the representative that was helping me. I think it is really degrading the Sallie Mae puts me in...

selling something in a country that doesnt work

Hi, I am extremely disappointed in the leappad ultra. I live in South Africa, and I brought my child a leappad ultra for Christmas. I am trying to download some apps but I am having difficulty. In South Africa we don't have access to MOST of the Disney apps etc. We also cant buy directly online as we have to buy an app centre download card (which is not actually freely available) AND we are still limited by the currency (LF) of that card. Unless im not understanding your process correctly. I...

University Of Metaphysics
Major disappointment!

I recently purchased a course from the University of Metaphysics. It took approximately two months to reach me. After waiting so long I finally received the course. The University of Metaphysics sent me 6 badly Xeroxed manuals written in 1959 by an old man. Their course contained nothing but old ideas about positive thinking in it. I personally think that their course is rubbish and don't think they are offering valid and recognized Degrees. I paid over R10 000,00 for a cheaply produced fake...

Educational Testing Service
Iran GRE exam No 30th cancelled

I participated in the GRE Computer based test in Tehran, Iran on No 30th 2013 when in the middle of the test the systems failed and a technical error occurred. only two sections of the test remained when this happened. we waited 2 more hours but it was not fixed so the test center cancelled the test. But since then they have not even e-mailed us to say how they will compensate for the deadlines we are missing. I wish they would accept the parts we already took and we could resit for the 2...

Next Step China LLC
Happy with the results

I’ve been studying Chinese for quite a while now. I think I started because I lived in Hong Kong and it was a different opportunity there that I didn’t have in New York, and then I just started to really love it, and so I kept going with it. Next Step China definitely exceeded my expectations as I was able to get a lot of studying done and have a lot of fun as well. With a one on one tutor, I was able to improve my speaking. I was able to really focus on my personal weaknesses, and really study...

Next Step China
Awesome program !!!

I looked at many programs online,interviewed the directors ,spoke to references and compared them all. The ONLY one that came close to our needs for a fantastic learning experience and comfort zone was Next Step China . NSC is the the right program for any age student who wants to learn the language and culture and have the best people to be there for them and the parents. It took a lot for me to trust anyone with my son so far away and so young. He had a great experience and can%u2019t wait to...

Next Step China
University

I have been studying Mandarin on and off my entire life. So I was looking somewhere I can restart in Beijing to not only get a good grasp of my learning but also being in the city. I knew what I was getting into being in Beijing with NextStepChina and it%u2019s been overall a very positive experience. With the tutoring program, I was very happy. I really enjoyed my tutor. I thought she quickly understood the level that I was at when I came here. She took about a week to just review and get back...
