Bruno from Brazil was only here for a short period of time, taking two weeks of English courses in the program English for Work in San Francisco. He attended school during his vacation time, and is returning to his job back home in Brazil. As such, the English for Work program was ideal for a student like Bruno, as it is specifically designed to help students develop fluency and communication skills that help in the English-speaking business world. Before he left, however, we asked Bruno a few questions about his experience, and here is what he had to say: Why did you choose to study at EC San Francisco? First of all because of the city: I didn’t have much time and I wanted a city with many tourist points. What was your favorite thing about EC San Francisco? Everything was good. The students are great, the location is perfect, and of course all of the staff of the school are great. What is your favorite memory of San Francisco? All of my two weeks were great! What advice would you give to a new student learning English at EC SF? Don’t lose time! Enjoy everything you can! Thank you so much, Bruno! And best of luck to you as your return home and put all of your new skills and abilities to work in the business world–we know you have a bright future ahead of you!
On March 19, Cyndi’s Business English elective class had a fascinating tour at KQED, San Francisco’s Public Television Station. They met on air “talent”, they visited the studios and control rooms and learned all about non-commercial Television in the United States. All the money to pay for KQED and other public television and radio stations comes from donations…from private individuals as well as businesses, large and small.
