This is a short composition from one of our Brazilian students. Andressa has been studying at inlingua vancouver since April. This composition was written for her final exam, June 25th.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Learning a language in a country where it is spoken:
Studying English in an English country is better than learning English in your country. For example, here in Vancouver I’ve been able to improve my English since my first day when I was asking for help to find my lost cellphone inside the airplane. At inlingua Vancouver we have native speakers teachers and this fact helps us to understand and speak words correctly, like “Canadians”.
One of the negative aspects is that you have to stay away from your family and friends. So if you are not used to living without your parents, probably your first month will be hard.
In my opinion, learning English in Vancouver was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. Because I studied English in Brazil for 4 years and I didn’t know how to speak English. And now, in just 3 months in Canada, I’m able to speak and understand English easily and quickly.”
