Academic Mentors: What do they do?

Learn English for Exam PreparationLearning English abroad is sure to be an enriching experience no matter where you choose to study. If you’re looking to develop your language skills and challenge yourself academically, then an Academic Year course could be the best fit for you. The AY course is ideal for those students who would like to develop their skills for Exam Preparation classes in an English-speaking country on a long-term basis. Students who successfully complete the course receive recognized certification (according to their performance) and even have the opportunity to sit for an internationally recognized exam upon completing the course. What makes the AY course particularly special is the unique benefit of having a mentor available specifically to guide students on a one-to-one basis for the duration of their studies. Today, we’re taking a closer look at what AY mentor Lucas from EC Boston has to say about his role the programme:

 

“As an AY mentor, it is my job to help students keep track of their academic progress and set ambitious but achievable goals. I meet with students regularly to see if they are on track and to help them find resources for practicing specific skills. Being an AY mentor involves more than academic support, however. Living in a foreign country is a life changing experience where you not only study English in an immersive environment, but learn about a new culture, try new foods, and make friends that will last a lifetime. To help students adjust to living abroad, I provide counsel on topics ranging from questions about homestay families and American culture to ways of making new friends or coping with frustrating situations. Having lived abroad myself, I understand how important it is to have a friend and mentor who is a native and can help students transition successfully into life overseas.”
