Meet Student Ambassador Ding!

Meet your new student ambassador, Ding!

“Before I came here I was very nervous and a little bit scared, because I was worried if I could make friends with others. I joined the EC activities and talk to many people, and I can’t believe that I made a lot of friends. So if you are worried about that, please do not be afraid. Come and try!”

EC student ambassador Ding - EC is an ESL New York Learning Center


Where are you from?
I was born in China. My hometown is Taiyuan Shanxi, a little bit close to Beijing. Many Chinese come from Shanghai or Beijing such big city. So there are few people who go abroad from my hometown.

Why are you learning English?
Now I can speak Chinese and Japanese fluently. I really want to do world trade in my future, so I think English is most important tool to have.

What do you like most about EC?
I think the difference between EC and other English schools is the aggressiveness of students. Many students come to class on time, do homework every day, and talking in English not only with foreigners but also same country students. You would think it is easy. But if you come here then you will find it is difficult to do that.

What do you like most about living in New York City?
NYC is a very interesting city. There are many immigrants. So the people come from many countries. They have their own lifestyle or outlook. So you can find every people have different style. In my country many people are similar, including fashion. So I think it is interesting for me. Many culture, arts, fashions, and trends all gather in here. This is why I like NYC.

Where is your favorite place in New York City?
Sports gym. Because I go to the gym almost every day after class, because I want to lose my weight. Haha!

What is your favorite food?
I like fried rice.
