Students choose to study at Embassy not only to learn English in the classroom, but also to gain invaluable language skills in real-world settings. Many of our international students are interested in gaining confidence and fluency in English to advance their careers to the next level. Our English in Action program in the USA is a 4-8 week course where students perfect their language skills with an unpaid placement in a US business, community or educational organisation. This week, we caught up with EIA student Alessandro Nolfo from Switzerland to learn more about his English in Action experience at the Dallo Law Firm in San Diego.
My name is Alessandro Nolfo and I’m from Switzerland. I finished a Master’s in Law before I came to Embassy San Diego.
My level was Advanced English.
I would like to attend graduate school here and get a Master’s in Law from the US.
My agency recommended Embassy and they gave me good advice.
The TOEFL class was just what I needed. The teacher, Phil, was very helpful.
I want to study law here in the US.
My speaking , listening and writing skills have really improved!
I was placed in a law firm and I will be a lawyer in the future.
I assisted the lawyers, controlled bank statements, used excel preparations, learned how to use PCLaw and OneNote which helped me work more effectively. I also helped prepare an audit for a huge firm.
This program was exactly what I was looking for. I was integrated in the group and learned how to work together as a team. I gained insight into American work culture. I also learned what kind of work tax lawyers do and which strategies they use to help clients.
Apply to graduate schools in the US.
“Thanks, I really appreciate that!”
