Hye Gin, who everyone knows as Genie, is a Korean student who recently completed taking Academic Year courses at EC San Francisco, studying for 12 weeks in total. As well as her English courses, Genie also was a student ambassador at EC SF, a program when students take on a role of planning activities and being a resource for other students. Genie was well liked by both her peers as well as the teachers and staff at EC SF, and we miss her very, very much!
Before she left to return to Korea, Genie took a few minutes to fill out a student testimonial to discuss experience at EC San Francisco. Here is what she had to say:
Why did you choose to study at EC San Francisco?
I was looking for a school to practice my speaking skills, and my agency said that EC focuses on speaking.
What was your favorite thing about EC San Francisco?
Being a student ambassador. It really helped me practice my English with many students, and it improved my speaking skills.
What is your favorite memory of San Francisco?
Spending time with my international friends is my favorite memory of SF. SF is a beautiful city itself, however, it is the most beautiful city every when you get to experience it with your best friends.
What advice would you give to a new student learning English at EC SF?
I’d just want to say to hang out as much as you can. 🙂 It helped me a lot!
Best of luck to you, Genie, as you return home and continue your English studies!
