Student of the Month - February

Name:                  Alessandro Lorefice

Level:                   Elementary

Course:               Key (Formally KET)

Our latest Student of the Month is sixteen year old Alessadro, who is studying towards the Cambridge Key (KET).  Alessandro is in the third year of high school in Scicli and started at English International School this year.  

Key is the first level of the Cambridge English certificates and is at A2 level on the Common European Framework of Reference.  This basic level qualification shows that you can use English in simple situations and incorporates the four skills of learning a language; speaking, listening, reading and writing.  Attending this course is a fantastic way to build the foundations of learning the English language and Cambridge certificates are internationally recognised.  

Alessandro answered a few questions about learning English at our school:

Why did you decide to come to English International School?

I came to the school to improve my English, so that in the future I can speak better.  

Tell us about the students in your class...

There are four students and we are all really good!  Alex is my friend from Scicli, he is friendly.  The other students are from Modica, Alessandro and Francesco.  Alessandro is very good at English and Francesco is passionate about horse riding.  And the best is our teacher, Catherine.  

What do you find easy and difficult about the course?

The writing and reading are easy, infact, I'm really good at these activities.  The listening is very difficult.  

What do you hope to become in the future?

In the future, I would like to find a job where you have to speak English.  I hope to become an international lawyer.  

Seeing Alessandro at school is always a great pleasure, he always has a ready smile and a cheerful hello.  Though he is new to studying English, he is making steady progress and is already able to have simple conversations with teachers and fellow students.  We are sure that over time he will be able to master the language and become a fluent English-speaker.
