Pierre from France: ”I am proud to have succeeded because of my efforts”

In addition to this, Pierre participated in a lot of activities organized by the school. He got to meet people from all around the world and to have amazing experiences. Here is what Pierre had to say:   During my stay at EC San Francisco School, I have learned a great deal personally, and this experience is one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in recent years. Integration into another culture, in an environment where spoken and written language is different from French. It has highlighted my ability to adapt and the need to be autonomous. In addition, learning a second language will be very useful for me in the future as part of an international job. It reinforced my passion for discoveries and made me more curious. Indeed, I was able to meet very interesting people who live around the world. I made contacts and I can now count on some people in case I have a business trip to another country. I also really enjoyed speaking English on a daily basis. When I arrived here, I was not at all comfortable speaking and integrating into a conversation, today I have made real progress and I am now closer to the B2 + level. My current fluency in English satisfies me and motivates me for the future. But beyond all the knowledge and skills that I have acquired, this trip to San Francisco has allowed me to discover a culture and a part of the world that I have always dreamed of exploring. Arriving in a foreign country, so … Read more

Finally, I finished my school here and I could make both of my dreams come true!! On my first day, I was really nervous and worried about everything such as school, new friends and my English. Because I didn’t have confidence of talking in English. Also because of my shy personality, it was difficult to talk with new people. So, I felt that I had a long day every day. But a lot of students talked to me and invited me to some activities. Since I talked with a lot of friends and enjoyed my life in San Francisco every day, my time started to fly so fast. I spent 24 weeks in San Francisco but I didn’t feel it was such a long time. In EC SF, I joined a lot of free activities after school. It’s my favorite point. In this activity, I could practice pronunciation and go to many neighborhoods not only sightseeing spots but also local places. Thanks to the activity, I could make a lot of new friends. Through these activities and daily classes, I found that I don’t have to speak perfect English at first. I can make mistakes when … Read more

Finally, I made up my mind to quit my job and I came to San Francisco to make my dreams come true. When it comes to finding a good language school, what I keep in mind was how close it is from my home, how many students in a class, and how good and famous the school is. EC San Francisco is a perfect language school for these reasons. There have great free classes which I can get a lot of information about the USA. I could enjoy not only studying English, but also studying other things such as California history and the San Francisco story. I took all the free classes almost every week, which were also my favorite classes.

I like the way the staff worries about giving you an enjoyable atmosphere all the time, even before the classes start, such as an introduction of the city on Sunday (Thank you Mayu!). Furthermore, it was rewarding to find teachers strive to make the classes entertaining and comfortable for each student.
