EC San Diego Host of the Month: Leanne Buck!

  Host of the Month: Leanne Buck Leanne: “Just like every student is different, every host family is different, and there is a match for everyone”.   Today’s Blog Spotlight is on EC San Diego’s Host of the month, Leanne Buck! Here we will outline the philosophies and experiences of our different, local San Diego host families, who all bring something special to the table. We at EC hope that this post will provide inspiration and advice to other host families so that we can continue to develop a support system together. We also hope that this post will help new ESL students looking to find their San Diego home while attending EC, the best English language school in San Diego! From EC San Diego Host Mom Leanne: “When I think about why I work with exchange students from EC, my first thought is ‘because it makes me happy’! I believe that one of my purposes in life is to help guide each and every international student in the hopes of enlightening their lives. I take pride in providing the best home stay accommodation for English language students in San Diego. “I am so thankful for what my EC San Diego students have brought to my family! “For example, my students always engage in conversations about the trips they want to take while they are here (I love to travel). They also share the trips that they have taken while in San Diego, showing me what they have bought at the nearby Outlet stores (I stay up on the new fashion), the photos they took while out to dinner at a Las Vegas casino (they always say “we eat all we can!”), and their favorite parts of visiting the Rock Church with me and my family! “A little about me: I love to walk around the Bay for 5 miles in … Read more

Words of Wisdom From Student Duckmyung Kim

Student Duckmyung Kim has been a student at EC San Diego since November 2013! He began as an Intermediate student and has now reached the Upper Intermediate level of English (the second highest!) here at school. Duckmyung chose EC San Diego English Language Center because he wanted to attend the best business English school in the US! Read what he has to say about his overall experience as an English student at EC San Diego: “I have learned a lot of various knowledge, as well as English, at EC school. When we studied about the current environmental situation of our world, I was shocked to find out that [human beings] have caused such harm to this beautiful Earth. “On the other side, I have also learned at EC that Technology, Science, Culture, the Arts, etc., have given us [people] the impulse to learn as much as we can! And for me, I had a great chance to learn as much as I could as a student at EC San Diego. “At EC I could meet new students, and my classes have lots of fun ones – we always kept practicing our English. All staff have always been very kind to me, and I would express my gratitude to them as well. Duckmyung with his Upper Int Class, April 18th 2014 “I deeply thank you for my esteemed teachers and my classmates, with whom I have spent many months. They all did their best to improve my English! Duckmyung with his class on February 14, 2014 “Learning English in San Diego was a really great experience, and I believe it will remain in my memory quite a while.”
