Felipe Rocha Coutinho is a lovely young man from Brazil participating in EC Montreal’s French programme. Felipe always has incredible school spirit! He participates in all our activities and gives new students a warm and friendly welcome. I will never forget giving a tour of the school to a new student, Gabriel, and Felipe introduced himself to Gabriel and said to him; “you are going to love it here. It is so much fun”. These two sentences made Gabriel feel so “at home” and welcomed by new friends. Today is Felipe’s last day at EC. Here is what he wanted to share with everyone about his EC experience:
My experience here at EC Montreal has been awesome. During these three months I met a lot of cool people, and I could learn the French language a lot and practice my English skills. The teachers here are incredible and the school has nice activities to do during my stay. As a first trip abroad, I have the feeling that I am going back to Brazil enjoying all opportunities I had here in Montreal. I am really happy that I chose the city to stay these last months and I don’t regret any second spent here. I hope to come back in the future, maybe to practice more, or even to say hello again to this amazing city I know I will miss.
