Student Interview: Rebeca from Tenerife

Today’s student interview was with Rebeca who is 22 years old and comes from Tenerife. Rebeca has been studying intensive English at Select English since September

Hi Rebeca! Tell us something about your home town and your family.

I come from Tenerife. The weather is better there than here! I have a brother. He’s younger than me. He studied at Select English 2 years ago.

What did you do before you came to Select English?    I was at university and I studied Economics.

Why are you learning English?

I couldn’t decide what I wanted to do so I decided to study English. You need to speak English in Spain to get a good job.

How long have you studied at Select English? Have you improved? 

I’ve been here since September. When I started my level was A2. I’m now C1.

Have you enjoyed your course? Tell us something about your classes.

Yes. I met different people and learnt about their customs. I’ve made lots of friends but when they finish their courses they are going home to their countries and I am staying here to do my Masters.

What do you think of Cambridge?

It’s beautiful. I have lived in Madrid before but I prefer Cambridge. There were too many people in Madrid.

What do you like to do in Cambridge?

I like to go to the gym and the pubs. If the weather is bad, I stay at home as I’m studying Accounting as well as English so I don’t have much time.

Have you been elsewhere in the U.K.?

I’ve been to Ely and London. London is amazing but I don’t like big cities so I preferred Ely.

Is there anything else you would like to say? 

The teachers are amazing and they’re energetic. They know what we need. I really needed help with pronunciation and they helped me. When I was at university I felt that they didn’t care about helping me.

If you’d like to join an English course like Rebeca, you can enrol here.
