Daniele D'Ambrosio is 27 years old and from Rome. He has been studying general English at English UK member International House Bristol.
English will help me get a better job: that's the reason why I am here. It is the most international language so it's very important to speak English to a good level.
I graduated last July with a degree in political science and I'd like to work as a civil servant back in Rome, so I'm here to be as fluent as possible. I'll do the Cambridge exam and then go back to Italy.
Well, it was a choice between the UK and the US - the US is great but it was too far. I love England, English culture, English music - Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Cream, Dire Straits. And now I can easily understand songs whose lyrics I don't know.
I think the UK was the best choice, both for travelling and the music I love.
I joined a friend here one summer about five years ago and I'm very happy here now. The school is very good, the teacher is good so yes, I am enjoying it.
Bristol is not a very big city like Rome but because of the university there are a lot of young people and a lot of things to do, clubs, restaurants or places to go. It's a good city. It's a short time but I am improving my English and I am enjoying myself.
Yes I would: it's not very far and I think Bristol is one of the best cities in the UK.
