My name is Vitória Canal and I’m from Brazil, Rio de Janeiro. I recently finished my school on December 2017. I worked with the Expedition America during the English in Action experience.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself
I studied for 2 months in Embassy School San Diego and after this period of time I started my English in Action experience.

So for me working with Expedition America with marketing and sales was a unique experience for my personal growth and also to improve my professionalism.
2. Why did you choose to study with Embassy?
I chose Embassy because of the variety of different programmes that I could join, specially the English in Action. Moreover, the school is Downtown in a very good location.

First of all I wanted to have more experience in the work field. Furthermore, I was curious to find out how the work environment is in USA.
4. How did Embassy English prepare you for your English in Action placement?
I started my preparation studying every week day English so I could guarantee that I would do my best to have a good fluency in this language.
After the 2 months of preparation I had couple of meetings with Marcia to talk about my profile, my interests and how to do nice interview.
5. How has your English improved during the English in Action program? What tasks were you asked to help out with at your host company? Did you learn new skills?
My English improved a lot when we talk about vocabulary. I learned a very specific vocabulary about marketing and sales.
I helped with the marketing, social media, sales and guiding tours.
I learned to be more responsible and more organized because the tasks they asked me to help out request me to be like this.
