Hi I’m Philipp I come from Switzerland !!
I was in Tamwood for 3 months ! Before I came to Tamwood I was working in the east side from Canada for 5 months, but in this company all people there spoke Swiss German! This wasn’t good to improve my English skills! Then I had the idea to visit an English school but I wanted to visit the school in Vancouver because my friend told me about his experience in Vancouver. He told just good things about Vancouver. Okay then I had a plan how I would come to Vancouver. I found to fly there is boring. And then I knew it! My father came to visit me in Canada so I crossed Canada with him from Montreal to Vancouver!
I can remember me when I arrived Vancouver my English was bad ! And when I went out with my friends they told always jokes about my English or they laughed. When I was in a conversation I used always the words “I don’t know” !! Hahaha
I began in the grammar Level 2 and in Speaking and Listening in Level 4.The first week in Level 4 was really difficult for me to understand the other guys in my class. And I asked my teacher if I didn’t stay in the wrong level. But they told me I can stay there – all people need time in the beginning. After 3 months in Level 2 I took the Challenge Test to move up to Level 3 and I can say I was really proud of myself. And in listening I even moved up to Level 5. It was unbelievable that in 3 months I was in the highest listening level. I improved my English a lot more then I thought. I would say thank you to all the teachers that I had. I will never forget the nice time here.
And my friends here ! I was in a homestay with other two students from different countries so it was easier to found people to contact. I had a lot of friends here and I had a really good time with them. We went always out on the weekend or in the week sometimes! I had a lot of fun with these guys and girls. TAMWOOD Team !!!
And now I will go to Whistler and I will visit there the Tamwood school and snowboard every day. 1 March 2016 I will go back to Switzerland. In Switzerland I will work again as a landscaper.
Thank you for the nice time I enjoyed this time really!!!! ?
