People often say that building relationships, forming cohorts, and networking in general are keys to success—in this case, HSE is the perfect option. Due to the small class size, students form acquaintanceships and friendships. Combined with the extra time with the instructor, HSE students are often more successful in English 100 than students who take English 100 on its own. The community our HSE classes offer means students have a place to be themselves and interact with the activities in an open and relaxed space.
