Meet Mohammed from Oman

So, what made you want to come to England to study English?
I need English to learn at university in Sri Lanka.  I will study aviation engineering and, absolutely, I need English for this.  My friend said that British English is a more correct form than American English, so I decided to come here. My friend said that Celc was a good school where I would be with many other nationalities, so I would have to speak English more.

Was England as you expected?
The weather, I know, is cold!  The people smile a lot and say ‘sorry… no problem’ a lot too.  My auntie told me that fish and chips is delicious and now I have tried it, I agree with her. I found that the streets were very clean where I lived, which was nice.

How was your experience of living with an English family?
It was a happy family and a good family, I like them.  They took me to Bournemouth and we played bowling, which was good.  The food was good and they bought Halal meat for me.  I was very comfortable in my room, it was nice.

What’s the most memorable moment of your time here in England?
I enjoyed all the trips, but my favourite is Durdle door.  It is a beautiful place and it is the first time I went on a boat. It was great!  Also, I enjoyed the lessons; the teachers have a beautiful style to explain the grammar and vocabulary.  They were very helpful.

Is there anything you’d like to warn other students who are thinking of coming to England about?
I don’t know.  Maybe, don’t worry about people in England; they are good people.  They are not very different to us.
