Emma, a student from Slovakia, was looking for a place to improve English and she ended up opting for EC’s ESL School in San Francisco. She studied at EC San Francisco for 6 weeks, where she quickly improved her English and met people from all around the world. Now she has much confidence to use English. Here is what Emma had to say:
Before I came here, I have had English classes in Slovakia for 12 years. When I came here, I was able to understand almost everything but I wasn’t able to speak and express my feelings. I came to EC San Francisco scared and determined to improve my English. I started in intermediate class. I had problems with speaking and using right grammar, so I focused on those points. After one week, I had more confidence about my English. My teachers were patient with what all students spoke. They tried to explain everything to everyone carefully. My exit test showed me that my level is still intermediate. However, I feel as if my English is 100 percent better than before. I met a lot of new people from different countries. I made many friends for life and now I know something interesting about some countries. EC San Francisco gave me the best experience of my life. What I like the most about EC SF is that the director and school ambassadors do the best for making good friendships between students. It doesn’t matter if you are from Colombia, Slovakia or Japan. It also doesn’t matter if you are young or older. Of course, there are some differences but we can be friends with anybody. Every week we could join free classes about California history and culture, writing and pronunciation. Almost every day, we had different activities where we could spend time with our friends and meet new people. I joined a lot of school activities with my friends. Every week, we could choose something different, such as culture activities, BBQ, sport activities and so on. I don’t choose the best activity because all of the activities in this school were the best. I’m sure that I want to study here next year again. I would recommend this school to everybody who wants to be better in English. This school will help to improve English for sure!!!
