Student Spotlight – Montserrat Pascual Sanchez! February 8th, 2017

Montserrat goes by Montsy. She is currently one of our youngest students studying at ELC LA. She has been studying at ELC for the past 2 months and she has been enjoying every minute of it! Read the rest of the interview to learn about Montsy’s experience at ELC.

Where were you born and raised?

Santiago, Chile. This is the capital of Chile!

Why are you studying English in Los Angeles?

I like dancing and LA has great dance studios. The weather is good and LA has many different things to do and go to, unlike other cities.

Is this your first time in the US?

No. My first time was in New York in 2012.

What were you surprised to learn about the US or LA? Did you experience culture shock?

Compared to my country, it is more diverse. I like that LA has little towns for each ethnicity. In Chile, there are only restaurants from certain countries, but we have little towns here. For example, Little Tokyo, Koreatown, or Chinatown.

What do you miss about your country?

The food. It is currently summer back at home right now. That is when the best foods are in season.

What do you do for fun? Hobbies?

I dance and sleep! I like to go out and go on adventures. I don’t like to do the same things twice.

What is your favorite phone app?

I like to Snapchat and Instagram. You can follow my stories on Snapchat @montsepascual or through my Instagram account @montse__pascual.

Favorite type of food:

I like Italian food! I actually lovvvve it!

Plans after ELC:

I will go back to Chile and finish high school!
