What brought you to ELC?
I was on a road trip with my friends. I decided to stay to learn English, so my agency told me about the ELC.
What has been your experience at ELC?
I like the ELC. The building is very nice—so are the classrooms. I have a good teacher. She helps me understand grammar. The classes are very good for me. I’m learning a lot. My classmates are from many countries, so we can practice English together. My classmates and I get along and have fun together.
Do you like Santa Barbara?
Yes, I like Santa Barbara. It is beautiful. There’s a touch of Spain here. There is a lot to do here. There are so many things to do and a lot of restaurants to try. I love that the school is by the ocean and by State Street.
What have you done so far in Santa Barbara?
I have met many new people on State Street. I like going out with my classmates and doing different things in downtown Santa Barbara. I also like going to different restaurants and trying different kinds of food. My classmate and I went to In-N-Out Burger, and I really liked it.
How do you like your homestay?
I like my homestay very much. My homestay mom is very nice. She drove me around the first day I was in Santa Barbara to show me what is in the area. The home is close to the school, so taking the bus is very easy.
