Gineth and Gustavo’s Testimonials: “I like the activities”

Gineth and Gustavo are two Colombian students who recently completed their time studying at EC San Francisco. They met each other at EC SF, and after completing their student testimonials they requested to take their photo together as “compatriots of the same country.” Gineth studied for 11 weeks at EC SF, taking General English courses to help further her career back home in Colombia. EC SF was recommended to her by her agency in Colombia, and she ended up enjoying her time studying. “You have good teachers,” she said, and she “liked the course activities.” She also mentioned that she appreciated that the courses are very interactive, “like a workshop.” Gineth also said that she “liked [the] free classes” that are offered to students twice a week at EC SF, including the Free Study periods where students can help from an EC SF teacher on any topic or subject they want to work on (including homework assignments!).

Gineth specifically recommended that students at EC SF take advantage of these courses, and that taking the “listening electives” are a really great way of making the most of one’s time studying at EC San Francisco. When asked what her favorite memory of San Francisco was, Gineth spoke once again about the activities, particularly those outside of the school, as well as the fact that “people are so friendly and happy.” Like Gineth, Gustavo’s agency in Colombia recommended that he study at EC San Francisco.

Andrea’s Testimonial: “Speak English with everybody, all the time!”

Andrea is an Italian student who recently took English courses at EC San Francisco. Though he was only able to take classes for a week, he made the most of his time at EC SF, participating in the Business for English group and attending several student activities. We wish he had more time to spend with us before he had to return back home! Before he left, however, we asked him to share a few thoughts about the time he spent at EC SF and the advantages of taking English courses in San Francisco. When asked about what his favorite thing was about EC San Francisco, he said that “it’s a very fun community.” He decided to attend EC SF because he found out about the school on the internet and decided that he “would like to improve my English level.” And so even though he only had a short amount of take classes, he decided to do it anyway. Andrea said that his favorite memory of San Francisco was the opportunity he had to visit the Golden Gate Bridge. And what advice would he give to a student who has decided to take English courses in San Francisco and attend EC San Francisco? “Speak English with everybody” he said, “all the time!” It was so nice getting a chance to meet you Andrea, and best of luck with your future studies and entrepreneurial endeavors!
