My Name is Hiro. I am from Tokyo. I like to learn English because this language is international and I can use it to have a conversation with people from different countries. I have more liberty if I want to speak with different people. Thank you to Kingston, my teacher’s Maynah and Peter and to everyone!
I’m Diego, I’m from Chile. I’m 18 years old and I came to New Zealand to learn English because English is very important.. When you learn English you have to consider that it is a slow process. It also depends on how much effort you put into it because you can be in the best institute in the world but if you don’t study you will never learn. I liked Kingston institute very much because I found this institute does very good classes and has good teachers and good staff. My English is better than before. I think my English is something regular now, but before my English was really horrible.
It was May 2015 that I first started going to Kingston Institute. By the time I was there for 6 months I had bad health and I had to go back to Korea. 2 years later my health recovered and I thought I should finish my studies. I applied again and thankfully my application was approved. I returned in November 2017 however I was worried about my new start. But Kingston teachers welcomed me and I finished my studies happily. Thank you very much to Maynah and all the teachers!
