One of the greatest parts of being a student at Embassy English are the experiences. Students come to Embassy not only to improve their English language skills, but also to explore new parts of the world, to take part in diverse cultural activities, and to meet people from all over the globe. This week, Ligia tells us more about her experience at Embassy Boston, as part of our series, My Embassy Life.
I am a Brazilian journalist who enjoys travelling and meeting people from different cultures. That is the way I do my tourist travelling. Before Embassy I was working for the Brazilian government as a communication’s officer.
At the moment, I am at the advanced level, but before I was studying for the TOEFL.
My English level when I first tested was eleven and now it is fourteen. I am very glad for that.
I find it very stimulating to meet people from different cultures and different parts of the world. I lived in London for some years, but I only came here either on vacation or working. Then I was curious about living in the United States.
I thought Embassy was the best choice for some reasons such as good location, good price-benefit, and the school answered my request very efficiently.
The staff’s efficiency and kindness, the teacher’s level, the location right in the central area, and all the social activities.
Definitely, my English was very rusty and I have improved a lot. There is nothing better to improve your English than studied the language at the country where the language is spoken.
At school, the great level of teaching – outside, the opportunity to meet different people from all over the world.
I love travelling, reading, cooking, and meeting friends over a good meal.
The seafood in Boston, I had no idea how delicious and varied it is until I came here.
The Institute for Contemporary Arts, Quincy Market, and the Boston Common.
Lovely, especially the smoked mussels, and the lobster.
Go around the town trying to understand the Americans in their day-by-day work and leisure routines. I like to try different food every day.
Oh, definitely! I believe I have brushed up my English in a very fun and efficient way.
I am going to do a translation/interpreter course; I would like to translate literature. However, I intend to be here a little longer and see more of this vast country.
I would like to thank Lynne, our English teacher for her deep knowledge of the language and her openness in showing us everything she knows.
Lynne is the most devoted and clever teacher one can have, and she is also a lovely person.
Yes, I would recommend Embassy for anyone wishing to improve their English.
