Jacky from China: “Try new challenges!”



Jacky, a student from China has been with us at EC San Francisco for 4 months. He is taking an Intensive course at EC San Francisco. In addition to this, he is one of the student ambassadors and sometimes organizes activities for all students at EC San Francisco. Even though he is 18 years old and one of the youngest students, he doesn’t hesitate to try new challenges with other students! Here are some comments from Jacky:

There is no doubt that being a student here is an enjoyable and delightful thing. When I was a freshman at EC. Gregory and Andy, my teachers, have helped me a lot. Because I was new in class, I was shy to answer a question, but when I took their course, I found they were very good at teaching. I was impressed by the relaxed but efficient way of teaching. Everyone in the class learned lot of about English, and we always forgot the time of our little break time. Of course, we wouldn’t lose a minute of our break time. They would make it up for us. Sometimes we were bad in grammar and they corrected us hundreds of times. I admit my spoken English is poor because I usually ignore third person singular. For example, she likes I will say she like, and after saying that Gregory will shake his head, which means I need to correct my sentence. If I make the same mistake the next time, he will say “Jacky, S.” with a funny voice. To be honest, he is my best teacher that I have ever known not only because of his unique style of teaching but also because of his patience and erudition. EC has many interesting activities including entertainment, education, and sport. For me, I’m one of the ambassadors in EC. As an ambassador, I have the responsibility of organizing school activities. We will try our best to invite students to our activities to ensure everyone is able to have fun and learn together, and that is the reason why I become a school ambassador. I will never forget the nice time I have spent at EC:)
