Embassy English Student Ambassadors participate in Orientation Day presentations and extracurricular activities, and they offer valuable advice about site-seeing, local cultural events, and adjusting to life far away from home. These Ambassadors act as a “buddy-system” for our students, so that everyone has a peer who has already experienced Embassy and can be an adviser and new friend from day one. This week, we caught up with Eman Alsuhaymi from Saudi Arabia, our Student Ambassador to Embassy Sydney.
My name is Eman I’m from the prophet city Medina – Saudi Arabia. I’m part time mermaid, full time dreamer but unlike the mermaid her legs are covered, I cover my hair. I still watch children cartoons on a regular basis which tells a lot about me.
IELTS test course.
I’m not really sure what was my level before but I believe it was intermediate somehow level. Now I’m upper intermediate, a step from advanced.
Firstly, To complete my higher education (master of medical physics). In addition to that, I wanted to find my true self out of my comfort zone through experiencing new thing in totally different world than mine. That won’t be possible unless I learnt English and knocked down any difficultly I come across because I’m fighter basically.
The offer was a hard one to refuse and after I thought about it, it actually suite the kind of person I am. Many fabulous things are included in being one of Embassy Sydney team, like being able to help in organizing all these great activities and events every month.
Since I’m student just like them and I’ve been in General English, Cambridge FCE and IELTS test courses, I know what are they most of the time concerned about. That allowed me to help by answering their questions and give them an advice from my own experience could make their Embassy English journey bit easier and more fun.
Don’t worry you will be in the right hands, Embassy team is very helpful and they are such lovely people with lovely personalities as well. Enjoy your time and try to ask about the things which you are concerned about the most, so they may help you as much as possible.
I have a lot memories at Embassy but my favourite one is for sure Manly bike trip. It was one of Embassy Friday activities.
Darling Harbour, Manly beach and the Auburn Botanic Gardens.
I’m planing to start my master degree in medical physics at The University of Sydney hopefully.
I think it’s (I think).
By far, the location. Many restaurants around Embassy makes it easy to have a nice meal after the class time. What is more, you can go by foot to Darling Harbour and enjoy your evening with a friend exploring the place.
That I was able to improve my English in many levels in short amount of time, which I didn’t expect to happen that fast. Thanks goes to the teachers of course.
I found in the website a wide range of courses may help me in my English journey. Also lots of activities and events be organized every month which made think at that time when I was making the decision, about the amount of fun I’m going to have after my class every day.
