Each week, I’ll interview a student here at EC Boston about his/her experiences as a student, among other topics. Our first student in this weekly segment is Mr. Yazed Alsubehany.
Ryan: What’s the most valuable thing you’ve learned while living in Boston?
Yazed: Valuable thing? Hmm.. having a good host family has helped me learn a lot of valuable things. They’ve taught me how to respect this country, this culture; how to be polite to people and speak English with native speakers. Hanging out with them has given me plenty of good experiences.
Ryan: I’m sure. So, Yazed, if you could be an animal, which would you be and why?
Yazed: Come on! That’s bizarre, Ryan.
Ryan: This is a valid question, Yazed!
Yazed: OK. I would be a lion, due to the fact that it’s the king of the forest.
Ryan: The jungle, I think.
Yazed: OK, king of everything.
Ryan: If you were a superhero, what would your name be and what would you superpowers be?
Yazed: I’ll choose the powers first: I’d be invisible..
Ryan: Why invisible?
Yazed: I’m not going to tell you why! (laughs) Also, knowing what people are thinking, and…
Ryan: OK, I’m cutting you off. No more powers!
Yzed: Just one more, please!
Ryan: No! Ok… so invisible and knowing other people’s thoughts? What would your name be? The Creeper? (laughs)
Yazed: No, no.. The Googler
Ryan: That really is all-powerful!
