JM: “How did you like your time at IH?”

JM: “How was your experience in Canada?”

EC: “I had an amazing experience. I learned a lot about Canadian culture and saw beautiful places like Stanley Park and Whistler. There are very kind, helpful people here and I got to experience lots of new things like skiing. It’s very cold though!”

JM: “What is the biggest difference between your home and here?”

EC: “The culture and the weather are very different. Also, the security here is much better than in Brazil, and people seem to live a less stressful life here. Public transport here is much better and the environment is very nice.”

JM: “What are your future plans and what do you plan to do with the information you learned here at IH?”

EC: “My future plans are to keep studying English. I will take what I learned here into my business, and improve my vocabulary.  I plan to speak English in Brazil, and use my English to get a better job. English will help me start my PhD, which I will start next year.

JM: “How will learning English improve your life?”

EC: “I can find a better job, make new friends, learn about a new culture and be a part of new opportunities. It opened many doors for me to a new world!

JM: “This is a very important question. What advice can you offer other students?”

EC: “It’s important to have a good balance between fun, going out and studying. Students should focus in class and attend all classes! A good balance between social life and learning is necessary.”

JM: “Would you recommend your friends to come to International House Vancouver?”

EC: “Yes of course! I will give good advice and recommendations to everyone I know back home. IH really satisfied what I was looking for— knowledgeable teachers, great staff and good work material.”

JM: “Thank you very much for your time Eduardo. You are an inspirational student.”

EC: “It was my pleasure.”
