What is your favorite travel memory?

EF Language Center students and staff

My favorite travel memory is from when I was in Tokyo, I was so amazed by the culture, traditions, and the kindness of the Japanese people.

One of great memory was when I went to karaoke with some locals. I experienced one of the most simple Japanese activities, that they do only to have fun and relax. For me it was unforgettable, it really allowed me to experience the Japanese culture.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

I think I have grown in my role as an activity coordinator. I have been in the same position since starting with EF, however I have developed as a leader, and am more confident in my decision making, as well as more organized.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

The best story I've heard from a return student is about a girl who married a boy she met in France during one of our French courses.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

I would choose EF International Language schools to learn a new language.

Since I'm always in contact with students, I can see how people from all over the world are able to stay in touch and share experiences in another country. I would enjoy meeting people from all over the world in one of our international language courses.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

I think the fact that we can help people learn a new language, and at the same time meet people from all over the world is a unique experience. I'm still in contact with students that I met 9 years ago.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

I think the biggest factor in being a successful company is making the most fair and correct decisions for the company, employees, and students.
