It’s always a special moment when students return to ELC. Whether it’s just a visit while they’re passing through or they come back again to study, the staff and teachers at ELC are always so excited to see a familiar face. Simone Griener from Germany just completed the ELC Hat Trick – Today, she finished her third course at ELC Boston. Aside from being an exemplary student, she is a dear friend of mine. Before she leaves us again, I took a moment to sit down with her and reflect on her time here in Boston.
~ Cara, the Student Services Coordinator at ELC Boston
Cara: This is your third time at ELC Boston. How would you describe your time at ELC?
Simi: It was a wonderful time, probably the most interesting time ever in my life. I met people from all over the world I would have never met anywhere else. You learn a lot about different culture, make a lot of new friends and improve your English at the same time — Could it get any better?!
Cara: What keeps you coming back to ELC Boston?
Simi: I still want to improve my English skills but I also want to see my friends here and visit the beautiful city. It is so nice to come back and see familiar places; you feel so much love at ELC. It’s like a family.
Cara: What is your favorite memory at ELC? Any favorite activities?
Simi: I can’t think of any favorite activity. There were so many favorites! Beginning with the Duck Tour, soccer, going out to Fajitas & Ritas, McCormick & Schmick’s, kayaking, visiting a museum together, or going to a Red Sox or Celtics game, everything was just perfect and impressive. You will have the time of your life!
Cara: What are your future plans?
Simi: I want to finish my studies in Germany. I am styding English and Spanish so I want to be a high school teacher afterwards. So maybe I can teach in Boston or in any other country some day. Thank you for everything!
