Chun Yen – EC is a great place to take ESL Courses in Miami

  Chun Yen (Larry) is our student from Taiwan. He has been with us for almost a year. He has already graduated from university with a major in international business. He would like to spend 1 year in the US to learn English. English is crucial for his career development since he will be coming back to Taiwan to work for his father company which is an international company. He had been in EC New York, EC Boston and EC Los Angeles before he came to EC Miami. He started to take ESL Courses in Miami with us since last July until now. Chun Yen shared with us that he had got a lot of difficulties during his first time in the US due to the language barrier. He couldn’t communicate with his roommate who is from Switzerland. He was not able to place an order when he wanted to buy food and drinks. He was afraid of speaking English. And guess what? Just after 2 months at EC Miami, he became more confident in speaking. He could participate more in class and able to express himself in English. He can understand almost what people says. His listening and speaking skills are improving faster than he thought. He even does a lot of things by himself without any difficulties such as finding an apartment, renting car, booking hotel or reporting issues…etc. Furthermore, He’s getting more and more confident to take part in all the activities at EC Miami. The most amazing thing is Chun Yen has become our student ambassador since last month. He’s leading a lot of fun and interesting activities like “Taiwanese Cooking”, “Mandarin Class”, “Kayak with Larry”… His most favorite class at EC is English in the City because he could know more about Miami.

Taiwanese Cooking Class at EC English Center in Miami

Taiwanese Cooking Class

Welcome everyone to our Taiwanese Cooking Class at EC English Center in Miami by our student ambassador from Taiwan! Chunyen, also known as Larry is a Taiwanese. He would like to introduce his traditional food to our students from different nationalities. Even though most of our students came from Europe, they were so excited to learn how to cook Taiwanese dishes. Larry started by few videos which gave to all participants some basic knowledge about the culture of Taiwan and Taiwanese foods. Taiwan is very famous by night markets. We can find all kind of foods from appetizers to desserts in those street markets. What Larry wanted to show us in his cooking class is the 2 most popular foods in Taiwan that you can easily find anywhere: dumplings and stir fried glass noodles. Larry showed everyone step by step of how to make and cook dumplings. After that, all students were given ingredients to practice and make dumplings by themselves. It was so fun since this is a first time they experience making dumplings. They did a good job though. Besides dumplings and stir fried glass noodles, Larry also prepared some bubble milk tea which is the most favorite drink in Taiwan for everyone to enjoy during waiting time. This is such a great opportunity for students to learn more about Taiwanese culture and cuisine.    

Under 21 in Miami?

You should know that the legal age to drink alcohol in the US is 21 but Miami is a city geared towards those blessed to be 21 and over. For those that are months away from showing that ID to a bouncer here are some places to go that’ll prove the city is more than just the clubs you see on Instagram. Whether you’re there during the day or at night, Lincoln Road has something for everyone. This mall stretches between 16th and 17th street and it’s a great place for shopping or just walk around. Don’t forget to take pictures of the street performers or any celebrities spotted trying to have dinner. Also If you’re on a date night or already had dinner but don’t want to go home yet, walk a bit further until you reach the boardwalk and the beautiful beach. The sun, sand and sparkling water are a major part of Miami’s attraction. Miami’s South Beach is widely regarded as a hot spot. This beach offers volleyball courts and water-sport equipment rentals for those looking to burn some energy. Sunbathers will enjoy South Beach as an ideal spot for watching cruise ships heading out at south pointe park. Additionally, many South Beach establishments, such as Senor Frogs, Clevelander and Nikki Beach, will let you in during the day regardless of age if you want to eat. So you can soak up the scene without having to worry because the law in Dade County, as in many places, is that if you serve food you may have people of any age in your establishment up to a certain time. In Miami is until 11 PM. At the end the best way to enjoy the city is hanging out with friends from around the world and practice your English after your classes at EC English Center … Read more
