PROFILES: CLAUDIA HARSAN, Bucharest, Romania
Claudia is a B-Senior level English student at Lexis Schools of Languages – Oltenitei Branch. During the holiday she went to an English Summer Camp at Cheile Gradistei in Romania, where she had a great time. She is the 1st prize winner in the "English ... and the whole world is yours!" online contest.
“I wanted to improve my English in a funny way. So, I decided to spend some time at DAD UK camp with my friends and neighbours. I thought that it was very difficult to communicate with the British teachers and the advanced students but I didn’t give up.”
She made an excellent decision.
“ My teacher Caroline was kind and helpful. We had lessons and workshops everyday, on interesting topics: British culture, Irish dances, grammar, vocabulary etc.”
But what she liked best were the sports and entertaining activities: horse riding, archery, climbing, mountain biking, swimming, paintball, orienteering (learning to use a map and compass to get from one marked point to another).”
I totally agree with her when she emphases that as a student of English the whole world was hers.
“It was a rewarding activity that requires communication, concentration, co-operation of team members. I enjoyed hanging out with lots of cool people. I would recommend everyone to give such an experience a try.
She came back from the camp determined to improve her English.
Good luck, Claudia! All the best to your friends - Ada, Horia, Claudia, Sergiu, Maria and Simina!
