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 Embassy Boston EIA student Alfredo Hidalgo Limbrick from Costa Rica to learn more about her English in Action experience at the Corey Cutler and Associates law firm in Boston.
My name is Alfredo Hidalgo Limbrick, I’m from Costa Rica. I’m a Network Engineer. Before I came to Boston, I worked in Televisora de Costa Rica (Costa Rican Local Channel 7), on the CATV department as a network supervisor.
Because it was always my dream to study another language abroad. I believe that studying in an English-speaking environment gives the opportunity not only to learn the language, but also to learn from the culture and the different customs of the citizens and make a beautiful experience.
I chose Embassy because of very attractive English programs and the competitive prices instead of other English schools.
The opportunity to meet people from all over the world and have the beautiful city of Boston; a city with many activities and history to explore.
Because I wanted to know how the work-environment is in USA. Also I wanted to be part of it and make new work experiences.
I was placed with a law firm, so I could learn different law vocabulary. Speaking with attorneys and the staff help me to improve my English as a second language.
It’s really important to grow as a person and professional. This is like a test to prove myself that I can work in different work-environments with English speakers. Additionally, I learned a lot about how the law works in USA.
I helped to research medical records and other paperwork to organized it. Additionally, create and edit different law documents.
Also I went to The Clerk’s Office inside Edward W. Brooke Courthouse to request civil action number about different cases.
Definitely, yes. If you want different and interesting experiences, you must enroll in the English in Action program with the school.
Continue reaching my goals and improve my English in a professional-environment.
Attorney that means Lawyer and “Exhibits” that means an object that is shown in court to prove whether someone is guilty or not.
