Elisa wrote to us to tell us how much she enjoyed her stay in Chester. Here is her letter:
Hello, I’m Elisa and I graduated in Graphics and Illustrations at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sanremo, Italy.
I came to Chester for the first time last summer, before I graduated, for just one day. I was impressed by Chester’s particular beauty and I realized where I would like to spend my study trip after my graduation. I visited English in Chester. The school seemed to me very friendly and organized, with a lot of stairs like a little Hogwarts! I was sure: I would be back in January for learning English with these beautiful people!
Now I can’t believe my study trip here in Chester is already over. My days at school have been simply fantastic. I learned so much, met so many lovely people and my heart, day by day, was filled with beautiful things and stories from all over the world.
My first day at school was January 25th. It was a day full of rules, information, papers, new people and tests. Of course I was a little bit nervous about it but in the afternoon I was really happy about my upper-intermediate result! I could not wait to start my lessons from the next day; my first week was tiring but especially great!
Living at the residence is really beautiful and comfortable, my housemates and classmates are all very nice and all my teachers are great!
Sue (the school's social programme organiser) arranged a trip to Chester Zoo. It was simply wonderful. I can’t believe how many animals I/we have met in a single day and I think the projects behind the protection of these animals are amazing! I totally fell in love with this place and I already can’t wait to visit it again.
We also went to Tea on the Wall cafe. We had a very lovely afternoon with green tea, sweets and some incredible stories from Sue. It was a pleasure discover a beautiful place like this!
I’d like to thank all of you, teachers, classmates and housemates, for making this month at English in Chester an incredible experience.
