Meet our Intern Mao!

Hello every one, My name is Mao, I am a new intern at EC Los Angeles!! I am a student at the University in Japan. My major is Education, with a focus on English teaching. The reason why I’m majoring in that is when I graduate I intend on becoming an English teacher in Japan. I thought that this will be a good opportunity to improve my English but also I could gain insight into how English is taught in America. I chose EC Los Angeles because of the location and its diversity. I love how LA has warm nice weather throughout the year and has a beautiful beach. The great part about EC LA is that I can enjoy both of them:) I’m also in love with LA because it is a very diverse city. I get to know people from around the world even though I’m not in EC! Even though I’ve only been here for 2weeks, I already Love working at EC Los Angeles 🙂 I will be in EC LA for 8 months so come see me at the Front desk and I would love to help you out!!

Student’s Experience at ECLA: “Every moment in LA is unforgettable!!!”

One of our past students from Japan, Shunsuke Tooyama, shared his great experience as an EC student. He started at the Elementary level, and ended in Advanced/Proficiency in less than 1 year – what an incredible accomplishment he was able to achieve!   What was your experience like when you first arrived in LA? How did things change throughout your time here? “I was so nervous and scared a little bit when I arrived in LA because I didn’t have any confidence in my English skills and couldn’t speak English well. For example, I couldn’t order what I wanted to eat in a restaurant. However, I was inspired by the students in EC who tried to talk with foreign people. As time went by, I had become to like speaking before I was aware of that. Eventually, I managed to move up to advance class!!!!!”   What led to your success? Any specific study habits or life skills? “I have a dream that is to be an English teacher in Japan. I tried not to forget it during my study abroad. I sometimes studied on my own after school or weekend. When I didn’t feel doing that, I usually hung out with my friends.”   What was your favorite thing about the EC teaching method? Your favorite thing about ECLA in general? “EC has 8 level classes. It’s very comfortable and important for students I think. In addition to it, EC has elective classes that we can choose what we want to study like grammar, vocabulary, talking, listening etc…. I really liked it. Furthermore, most of the students like the location of EC!!! “   What is your favorite memory of your time in LA? “I can’t choose. Every moment in LA is unforgettable!!! I mean I enjoyed every day.
