A typical day at Eurocentres San Diego
Of course, Su-Yun had already heard a lot about the American lifestyle and this is why she chose San Diego. Despite this, her first few days in the new location were not so easy. The helpfulness of the Eurocentres team in San Diego, however, helped her get over the initial difficulties. Now, Su-Yun goes back and forth to school, goes on excursions with her classmates from all over the world and can no longer understand why she had such problems in the beginning. This morning, Su-Yun was dropped off at school by her host father, John, on his way to work.
Before going to her classroom, Su-Yun grabs an apple, one of the many snacks in the cafeteria that are free of charge. She looks forward to her classes and her English skills have improved tremendously in a very short time. Encouraged by this quick success, she is even considering taking the certificate exam. She wants to discuss this option with the administration team during the lunch break before meeting her friends in the nearby steakhouse.
