Rebekka Wermuth is 21 and comes from Happerswil in Switzerland. She studied examination English at English UK member the Christian English Language Centre in Christchurch, near Bournemouth.
I wanted to improve my English for myself and also for my studies in tourism. In my opinion, learning English in England is the best place.
My parents studied there in the early years. And I really like the South of England, so the school was the best decision for me.
I did about five weeks until May 8, which were also a preparation for my second place in England. I moved near London to work with a mission organisation for two months. I passed the First Certificate in English in London.
Yes, I really enjoyed it. I've learnt a lot of the English culture; I've met a lot of people around the world and was impressed with the gorgeous nature, the sea and the rocks.
It's difficult to say what I liked most; everything was a good experience. But overall, I think I enjoyed the kindness of the people in the school most, we had always a lot of fun, especially on the trips. I'll always remember this time in England.
I was surprised how fast I got used to the new circumstances – speaking English, the weather, traffic on the left side, culture, and the food.
It'll change my life because I can communicate with people all over the world, I can use English in foreign countries, for keeping in touch with other people or business reasons.
Yes, for sure! I've already recommended it to a friend who is coming to the same English School very soon.
