I loved my time at WT.

I want to visit USA to learn about their cultures, values and most of all their living standards.

British Council had a very good experience with them

Pay for the paper, not the education
Anonymous rated 2 out of 5 stars

The online program is severely lacking in many regards, specifically in the delivery of materials. Also, the materials used are easily found online for free or no charge, making the entire degree add up to paying for paper, not necessarily education.
