Maybe some of you have been wondering about this question.
Mattia Manuel-Verginella, an English student, gives his account of his experience here.
Where are you from?
I’m from Italy. I live near Venice.
Why did you come to Montreal?
Because Montreal is a very big international city and there are a lot of opportunities.
What do you like about Montreal?
I love the different types of people and different languages.
How would you describe your time at CLC?
I love the place. I love the kitchen because we are very relaxed, we don’t rush here, and we are friends. I can come here when I don’t have lessons to speak with some people. I love it because it is another world for me.
How is this world different from your other world?
The teachers are friends. In my world, I am a student and the difference between teacher and student is very important. The student is a student and the teacher is a teacher. Here, I enjoy with them and they can understand me.
What would you miss the most about this place?
I love this school. I love Mont-Royal. The people are open. Here, I don’t only learn a language, but I also learn about other cultures and how the people see my culture. Now, I can see things from another point of view.
From the teacher’s perspective, CLC is an enjoyable teaching and learning environment because it is full of students like Mattia, who have a constant enthusiasm to share and learn, a high ambition to use new vocabulary and grammar, and a desire to further their understanding by asking questions. It’s going to be a happy summer!
