Andre from Brazil recently completed taking General English courses for four weeks at EC San Francisco. He is studying architecture back home and decided to study English during his time off. Before he left, we asked him to share a few thoughts about his time at EC SF and how to make the most of one’s time studying at an English school in San Francisco.
He said that he first found out about EC San Francisco after finding it on the Study in the USA website, and decided that it was the best fit for his study goals. When asked about his favorite thing about EC San Francisco, he talked about the “good location” of the school, and how the “staff are all very kind.”
What was your favorite memory of San Francisco?
Andre said that his favorite memory about San Francisco was just after he first arrived at the airport and realized that he could go anywhere he wanted by public transportation! According to the American Public Transportation Association, the San Francisco Bay Area does indeed have the largest and most extensive public transportation on the West Coast of the United States, with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system the ninth largest rapid transit system in North America. This makes things very convenient for students studying at EC San Francisco, and the opportunity to visit many places during their time staying here.
What advice would you give to a new student learning English at EC SF?
“Don’t stay home!” he said. “Go to the museums, to the bars, go to the movies–whatever!–just get out of your room!”
It sounds like Andre was able to take full advantage of his time staying in San Francisco and studying at EC SF. Best of luck to you in your continued studies, and keep working on your English!
