Why are you learning English?
I am learning English because it is really necessary in my major. In old aviation sectors, the language is English. Not Spanish, not Italian, only English. It is also necessary to know when traveling in other European countries, because English is the language of the world.
Why New York?
At first, I wanted to study in San Francisco. But then I read about New York and saw films about New York and I became curious about the city. It is the capital of the world.
Why did you choose to study English with EC?
My sister studied at EC in England last year, and she said great things. So I decided to come here.

The school is very cool, and the people are very good. I can meet people from all over the world! I have very good teachers like Hans, Mike, and Adriana.

There’s nothing you can’t do. You can see people from every country, food from every country, and visit neighborhoods like Chinatown, K-Town and Little Italy.
What do you think of New Yorkers?
They are very busy people. You can do whatever you want and people don’t care. They are open.
