Patti: Hi Shota! Today is your last day at our school. I just wanted to ask you a few questions because you are one of the happiest students that I know here. You have been here since January and I think that you had a very successful time in Victoria.

Patti: What are some tips that you would give to students coming to Victoria? Life tips?

We will miss you Shota!

 

Shota: For ‘life tips’ I think that it is important to make connections. Not superficial connections. Close connection! My close friends help me a lot for life in Canada, to study English and to get experience in Canada. So, I think it’s the most important thing.

Patti: How did you make close friends?

Shota: I was in luck, he is my co-worker. I work almost everyday so I could make close connections.

Patti: You say that close connections are very important. Anything else?

Shota: Think optimistic!

Think positive!

Canadians are so kind. So if I make a mistake or if I can’t speak English very well, you don’t need to care.

You don’t need to worry too much.

Patti: No need to be embarrassed.

Shota: Don’t hesitate!

Patti: Thank you, Shota. I just wanted to appreciate you as being a great student at our school and bringing a lot of happiness and positive energy.

Often students believe that all they need is more vocabulary and better grammar. This is usually not the problem.
