With very well-educated teachers, I learn so many things. Not only in the text but also the city! Alyssa was my first teacher at Embassy. She was so smart. She always had awesome ways to teach students. She is cool for giving advice about things outside the class too. Now I am studying with Jennifer. I can tell that she is amazing. She knows what students think and want.

How has your English improved?

Since I study at Embassy English which I can surround with friends and people who are not from my country.  When I communicated with them, sometimes they did not understand what I said due to my accent. However, it really helped me to try my best to pronounce accurately.

 How do you think speaking English will help you in the future?

Speaking is a tool to communicate with people. Even thought, I can not speak English very well like a native speaker but people can still understand me. Like, when I go study aboard or travel to other countries, I always communicate with people in English because English is an official language. When it comes to a modern world, English is very significant in study and work.

Would you recommend Embassy English to other students?

I  would definitely recommend Embassy English to my friends. First of all, all the teachers and staff members are so great. The environment at school is totally awesome. There are a lounge and computer rooms where the students can relax during the break. Students come from all around the world which we have a chance to learn other cultures.

What do you plan to do after your English course?

I plan to study in TOEFL class at Embassy English. Then, I am going to apply for Masters Degree in  Fashion industry in the states. After that, I would apply for an intern student in Fashion field to gain some experience for a few years before going back to my country.
