Why study English in the USA? There are many benefits to studying English in an American city like San Francisco, but one major reason is that studying in an English-language area allows you to use English in “real world” settings, which in turn can help increase the likelihood of academic success!
This is demonstrated by an email EC San Francisco teacher Drew received from Arthur, one of his former students. Arthur is a French student who took General English for three weeks this last summer. We thank Arthur for agreeing to let us share his experiences with all of you.
In his email Arthur talks about how his English improved because he chose to take English courses over the summer, the quality of the teachers at EC San Francisco, as well as the good memories that he made and why he misses San Francisco:
This is Arthur one of your French former students. I was at EC SF last summer. I just wanted to take some news, to see how you are doing. I heard the Giants has won against Washington DC during one of the longest game ever ! You told me before I was leaving that you were going to Europe in August, I hope it was great.
I miss California, especially the people there and the atmosphere of San Francisco.
Today during an oral exam in English a teacher notice that my accent was better than last year. No doubt it is thanks to you. Your lessons was great!
Anyway I’m looking forward to hearing from you !
Congratulations on your exams, Arthur, and we’re so glad to hear that you have such good memories of your time here in San Francisco! Keep up the good work, and keep practicing your English.
Study English in San Francisco and achieve academic success just like Arthur!
