At LIBI I have acquired important knowledge and skills. The teachers shared their own experiences in class. This is a great teaching method . . . The teachers are hard-working. Whenever I had questions after class, the teachers were pleased to answer them and explain them patiently. LIBI has prepared me well for my career. I am a new immigrant and LIBI was my first institution of learning experience in the United States. I love LIBI, and I am proud to be a LIBI student.
