Adriano De Ciccio is a 23 year old Swiss Italian student. He was in the army for 14 months before coming to EC San Diego. Now he plans to look for work and go back to school when he gets home. In this interview, Adriano shares some of his insights and thoughts about San Diego!
So what made you decide to come to San Diego?
My dream has been to come to the US, so in my free time in Switzerland I would make lists of the best cities to visit. I wanted to be near the beach, but Florida has hurricanes. I decided LA was too big and Santa Barbara too snobby. San Diego is great because it is by the ocean and Mexico, so I can visit another country while I am here. I also like that it has a younger average age.
What is your best memory so far?
Skydiving was amazing of course! But the best thing is just to be here! I mean I am in a whole new country – in place that I used to only see in pictures. So it is a great feeling to realize that I am living here now.
What do you like best about your lessons?
I really like the mixture of the different cultures while we learn English. In TOEFL, for example, some of the topics are difficult to talk about. But we can learn about different opinions in our discussions.
