A lot of the students that come to EC Miami to learn academic English are here because they have off in their own countries. Maybe there is some time where they are on vacation or don’t have to go to work, and they have time off to do other things. Instead of staying in their home countries when they have time off, they decide to come to Miami Beach and practice their English (while making new friends and enjoying our beautiful weather!). There are far worse places you could be when you have some time off than in South Florida!
When you have off, you have time that you don’t have to work at your job or attend school. Ironic that when some people have time off from school at home, they come here to attend school! We hope you do, too!
