Hello, my name is Barbara, and I've been living in New Zealand for the past 6 years. Originally, I am from Brazil. My mother tongue is Portuguese, but I also speak some English.
Before coming to New Zealand, my knowledge of English was limited. I took a two-month course at a private training school to improve my English skills before arriving here.
I chose to study with DynaSpeak because a friend from my church, who used to be a student here, recommended it to me. Currently, I am studying at the Foundation level.
My experience at DynaSpeak has been different from other places I've studied in the past, mainly because of the friendly staff and teachers. The atmosphere here is welcoming.
Studying at DynaSpeak has had a positive impact on my life. I've made many friends, and my English has improved, considering the relatively short time I've been studying here.
Looking ahead, my long-term goal is to practice law in New Zealand, as I was a lawyer back in Brazil. Once I finish my studies here, I plan to take the necessary steps to pursue this goal.
One particularly memorable aspect of my time at DynaSpeak is the presence of Chi, a lovely and passionate teacher who has been a great help to me. I enjoy her class, and every day spent at DynaSpeak is a memorable one for me.
