 “My time studying English at the ELA will be very useful for my career and give me more opportunities when I go back home. I took the Business English elective within General English, and the report writing skills and business-related vocabulary that I learnt will be really helpful. I also had the chance to meet lots of new people and develop friendships with people from other countries through the ELA activities such as football, hiking, and basketball.”
