Storytelling:

I looked for a training school online. I found SE and another school. So, I went to both schools to have demo classes. The reason I chose the two schools because they are close to my house, I went to the two schools by metro from my home to school. At SE, I saw Jesse. He was the boss of SE. In the demo class, I learned a lot. I think Jesse had a lot of experience in teaching English and he was very friendly to me. So finally, I chose SE to study English because the boss is friendly.

I have studied at SE for one and a half months and I had classes with Jesse, Rab, Daniel, Celeste, and Harmony. In the first week, I had a lot of classes with Jesse because I was a new student. Jesse is very kind and patient but, he is the boss of SE so he doesn’t have a lot of time to have classes with students. He has a lot of work to do, such as recruiting new teachers, training new teachers and demo classes and take care of his wife.

Rab is a very handsome man and he also is an artist. But, artists are sometimes very strange. I have had only one class with him.

The third teacher is Daniel. Daniel is a teacher at a university and a little mature. He is a part time teacher at SE, he always goes to SE on the weekend because his has a little baby. In Daniel’s class, the topic is always about our families and children. But, Daniel always uses a lot of difficult words to describe another word. At home, I take more time to find the meaning of the words in the dictionary.

Celeste is a very lovely and beautiful woman. She looks very young. I have a lot of classes with Celeste and I like Celeste’s classes the best. In the class she is very active and I feel comfortable. Celeste’s notes are very rich. Last week, I had four classes with Celeste.

Harmony is from Canada. Harmony is a little more mature/maturer than Celeste.

2 months ago I looked for a training school online and I found SE and another school. So, I went to both schools to have demo classes. The reason I chose the two schools is because they are close to my house. I went to the two schools by metro and they were about 40 minutes from my house. At SE, I met Jesse who is the boss of SE. In the demo class, I learned a lot and I think Jesse has a lot of experience in teaching English and he was very friendly to me. So finally, I chose SE to study English at because the boss is friendly.

I have studied at SE for one and a half months and I had classes with Jesse, Daniel, Rab, Celeste, and Harmony. In the first week, I had a lot of classes with Jesse because I was a new student. Jesse is very kind and patient but, he is the boss of SE so he doesn’t have a lot of time to have classes with students. He has a lot of work to do, such as recruiting and training new teacher, demo classes and taking care of his wife.

The second teacher i met was Daniel. Daniel is a tall and mature man and is a teacher at a university. He is a part time teacher at SE, and he always teaches at SE on the weekends because his has a little baby to take care of. In Daniel’s classes, the topic is always about our families and children. He has his own opinions so his classes are very interesting. He can speak fluent Chinese but he never uses it with me, which I think is good for me. Once I asked “can you speak Chinese?”, and he replied “of course, but this is an English class for you, and you paid money for it.” However, Daniel always uses a lot of difficult words to describe another word, and that makes it a little difficult for me, so at home, I spend a lot of time to find the meaning of the words in the dictionary.

Rab is a very handsome man and he also is an artist so he is so nice and interesting. I have had only one class with him because he is very busy and has a lot of exhibitions for his work.

Celeste is a very lovely and beautiful woman who looks very young. I have had a lot of classes with her and I like her classes the best / most. In the class she is very enthusiastic which makes me feel really good about myself and more confident. On top of this / Furthermore, her notes are very rich which can help me a lot. Last week, I had four classes with Celeste and it made me really happy.

Harmony is from Canada and she is a sexy and pretty young lady and is more mature/maturer than some other foreigners I’ve metIn my opinion, she is a very responsible teacher who always helps me to review the last 2 classes. I also like to have classes with her because she is very focused on the class.

I like SE very much and I love all the teachers that I have met there. Plus of course, Judy.

enthusiastic – “en thoo zi as tick”
eg. Celeste is really enthusiastic and is good at making students feel comfortable and warm

i have 2 friends. i chose 1 school to study at.
