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, Ichimura Masahiro from Japan tells us more about his experience at Embassy New York, as part of our series, My Embassy Life.
I used to work as a commercial diver and assistant project engineer in Japan and Singapore at a underwater construction company.
I’ve taken General English “Intensive Course”.
I started from Level 5 (Upper-Intermediate)
When I worked in Singapore I was able to communicate with Asian English speakers but seriously hesitated to talk with native English speakers. So I had decided to improve it by communicating with native speakers. Also I thought there’re many opportunity to know about different foreign culture in NYC. This is the reason why I chose Embassy New York.
My teacher, Jennifer always give me clear explanation during class and especially I want to say that she suggest me key to achieving future business.
At the beginning of course, sometimes it’s hard to get what teachers and students said. However, I’ve been gradually getting better at listening and speaking and recently I can respond correctly.
Don’t hesitate to communicate in English. Do make many opportunity to test your English.
I like to look for good restaurants, cafes that I haven’t been yet with my friends.
Also I love to spend relaxed time at parks. There’re many awesome parks in NYC.
I was surprised and impressed that New Yorkers often help other people (having much stuff, having disability, children, elderly) with opening door.
This is really good practice. So I’ve tried to do so since then.
Spending great time with my friends at roof top bar named “The Press Lounge” is one of the greatest memories.
“Hang out,” “Chill out,” “Get a kick.” I love to use above phrase in my spare time.
I think English is key to opening new doors. This means that if I can speak it fluently I can spread my own possibility to success future business, make new friends also know new things.
I’ve planned to take internship to prepare for career changing.
Of course, my teacher Jennifer. She always tries to explain us clearly. She’s professional.
I can never thank you enough.
