Today we would like you to meet Joyce, who is studying on our 20 Hours English Course.
Hello Joyce! Tell us a bit about your home.
I am from Xinjiang Yining in China – near Kazakhstan and Russia. This weekend in China it’s the Spring Festival (or Chinese New Year) so I am going to China Town in London to celebrate with my school friends! At home I live with my mother, father and younger sister, she is 18 years old.
Is the UK very different from your home?
Yes, the education is very different here, I like it. The teachers and the people in the local area are very friendly.
How long is your course at Select English?
About 6 months.
Why are you studying English?
Because it’s an international language and I admire British scientists like Stephen Hawking.
What did you do before you came to Select?
I was at High School. My favourite subjects were Medicine and Management.
What do you want to do when you leave?
I want to be a doctor in China. My father is a traditional Chinese doctor, maybe I will learn traditional Chinese medicine as well.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I am crazy about studying English and I also play basketball with other students every Friday.
Do you like Select?
Yes, I love it! I like my host family as well 🙂
