Meet Chris Chen, one of our students here at Real English Victoria. Originally from Taiwan, she has been studying as a full-time student for only three months. She wrote a post about her experience on her Facebook and has given us permission to repost it on our blog. Thank you, Chris! We’re so proud of all that you’ve accomplished in your short time here.
From reading to conversation, it’s my goal. Now I can do it.
First time when I came here, I just could say, “My name is Chris, I’m from Taiwan, nice to see you, yes, no, thank you, and I’m fine.” That was it.
Last year my daughter recommended the school to me, so I came here to study for 2 months.
We have a special blog post from one of our amazing students, Mike!
I would not say it is a challenge, but it’s a valuable experience for being an English learner that I had three interviews with different native English speakers. Before sharing these, please let me introduce myself first.
My name is Mike and I was born in Taiwan. Following the traditional education in Taiwan, English was not a tool for me; it was a subject which I had to study for the exam and I hated it. For this reason, I hardly talked to anyone in English because it almost killed me. It was easy to keep the speaking part of English away when I was a student; I could be a good student only with reading and writing. But it didn’t work after I got a job and that was why I went to Canada to improve my English skills.
