Student Testimonials

Zorana M., ESL Level 5 Student

esl classes Skokie, ILHello everybody! My name is Zorana and I am from Serbia. I attend ESL classes at ORT Institute.
I came to U.S. in 2013 to improve my language skills.

My good friend recommended me ORT. He told me that this school was the best choice for me and he was right.

We have excellent teachers and school staff and my English is incredibly better. From a shy girl who could say only few words, in four months they turned me into talkative butterfly ๐Ÿ™‚ And that fact is the most important reference! Finally, I can communicate!

When I finish ESL classes, hopefully I will continue Graphic Design program at ORT. I love graphic design and I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world! ๐Ÿ™‚

Malvina H., Pharmacy Technician Graduate

esl classes Skokie, ILI came from Bulgaria to America almost 7 years ago. Me and my family won green cards, so the possibility came and we took it. I had a friend who told me about ORT and said that it is very good with very helpful staff. I decided to study for Pharmacy Technician because it is a way to help people. It is a very responsible job and I have no regrets whatsoever.

My favorite part about the school was my teacher Dr. Saima Salahuddin, she was very helpful. Everything I learned I use at my job. I am glad I did the program.

When I finished, I started my externship. I did 140 hours, and the Pharmacy Manager really liked the way I was handling everything, so he offered me job. And of course I said yes.

This is my story, and I consider myself very lucky. I hope that would help and encourage everyone who decides to go into that program or another ๐Ÿ™‚
