Havva is a Turkish student who studied at EC San Francisco this summer. When Havva first arrived at school she was very shy about speaking in English, but after taking full immersion English courses in the Semi-Intensive program, and studying diligently for three months, she impressed everyone with the dramatic improvement in her speaking abilities and overall fluency. Well done, Havva!
When asked about what her favorite thing about EC San Francisco is, she singled out the quality of the teaching and the student community, writing that “all of the teachers and students are so friendly and helpful.”
Havva said that her favorite memory of San Francisco is an afternoon spent at “Baker Beach with all of the students.” This weekend school activity, led by the student ambassadors, took place on a sunny Saturday on a beach with the famous Golden Gate Bridge just in the distance. “It was very good,” she writes, “we all played ball games which was enjoy[able].”
Would Havva recommend EC San Francisco to other students who want to learn English? “Absolutely!” And what advice would she give to a student? “Always speak English.”
Havva is heading to New York City for a short trip before returning home to Turkey. Save travels, Havva, and keep using all your new English skills on your trip–we will miss you!
