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 Janine Pereira de Souza from Brazil shares his experience studying English at Embassy Sydney as part of our My Embassy Life series.
My name is Janine, I’m 25 years old and I was born in Brazil. I’m a Civil and Environmental Engineer, and I came to Australia to learn English.
To be honest, I was just looking for some reason to travel abroad and couldn’t find another way to justify taking a break from work to go somewhere in the world. So, I decided to study in a foreign country and I accepted the suggestion from my travel agent to choose Embassy Sydney as my school.
I started at Intermediate level and two weeks later, I met a teacher who suggested the Cambridge class, and I joined this class. In one month, I have learnt in this class more than I had in lots of years in Brazil.
I have become interested in learning English because my teacher is so good, extremely helpful and make the process less stressful. In addition, learning a foreign language with a non-Portuguese speaking teacher has been increasing my knowledge, because I have to be able to explain what I’m trying to say in English. This is challenging and rewarding at the same time, especially when I see my progress.
The best thing about learning English at Embassy is the way the teachers treat the students. They are so pleasant, informative and interactive. Besides, they have students from different countries in the world and I am getting to know people and can immerse myself in different cultures, which helps me understand international issues better.
Studying English in Sydney is an amazing and memorable experience. Furthermore, the people who live here are extremely welcoming and understanding.
Nowadays, speaking English is essential for those people who want to work for a Global Company, and your cultural experience will be the differential because the competition includes people from all over the world.
When I return to my country, I’ll be more mature, independent and especially I’ll have a new perspective on culture and language skills, which will help me find a better job.
My favorite phrase in English is “Life doesn’t start until you leave your comfort zone”.
