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 Brazilian student Tamara tells us more about her experience at Embassy San Francisco as part of our series, My Embassy Life.
I used to work in the Financial Department at a Law Office, and I was studying English on weekends.
Because I think it’s the best way to learn and improve your English once your live daily with English speakers.
The travel agency recommended me some schools, I did some research and I really liked Embassy English.
I always wanted to come to California, I don’t know why exactly, but I love this state. And I choose San Francisco because of the diversity, the local culture, the friendly people and the beauty of the city.
What I like most was the staff, they are awesome, very friendly, always trying to help us and giving all the necessary support to the students.
I also like very much of my teacher, Ricky, he is amazing, an excellent teacher, always concerned about giving us good examples on the subjects covered in class, and of course his drawings, I really love his drawings!
And last but not least, the friends I made here!
I’m really going to miss it all!
It was intermediate.
I only studied at Embassy English for 4 weeks, so my improvement wasn’t what I really wanted to, but I think I improved a lot in that short period of time.
I don’t feel nervous speaking English anymore, I’m more confident now. I believe my listening has improved a lot too.
Each moment at Embassy San Francisco was unique! It has been an amazing experience, I have visited beautiful places and met many awesome people.
I don’t think I can choose only one moment, all of them will be recorded in my memory forever.
I love to travel, and I would like to travel a lot, all over the world, and I think English is a key language everywhere.
Speaking English will also help a lot in my career.
My plans are to continue studying English in Brazil and start planning my next trip, maybe another English course abroad, but this time for a longer period of time.
I would definitely recommend Embassy English to everyone who need to improve their English.
The school in San Francisco has a great location, it’s very organized, has excellent teachers and staff, and students from all over the world.
“Don’t worry, be happy” it’s my favorite phrase in English, but I learned recently the phrase “Happy Hump Day”, and I really liked it.
It’s hard to choose only 3 places, but I think my favorite places are:
I would like to share my experience in a Homestay.
At first I was really nervous and tense about living in a Homestay, but that was before I met my host father, Ismael. He is such a nice guy! He is always concerned about doing everything he can to ensure that students feel good, and to let our experience here even better.
He is always inventing something that we can all do together, like cooking or chatting for sometime after dinner to help us to improve even more our English.
I really loved the time I spent in Ismael’s house, I’m really gonna miss him and everyone there.« Previous post
