Delfin Blog - Follow your passion!
First of all, I would like to say that when I found Delfin Language School, I thought that I had just found a good English school…. Now I can say that I have discovered so much more.
I felt the necessity to gather true confidence with the English language because even though I was already at a good level, I knew that it wasn’t going to be enough for a professional career abroad. I study law at university and I would like to work in an international environment. Today’s society is more globalized than ever and connected by English as a common language: if you know English you can break down most of the mental barriers blocking you from going abroad and following whatever your passion might be.
When embarking upon a language course, I think that proficiency in the language should not necessarily be the goal itself, but rather a means for achieving your goals and becoming more self-aware and cognisant of what surrounds you.
That being said, what was it like at Delfin? Delfin is definitely different. I believe that this school is different because of it creates the perfect but difficult mix between a providing a very high standard of teaching – which is necessary if you want to achieve a truly proficient level of English – and a more relaxed and informal atmosphere, where you feel free to make mistakes and push yourself beyond your limits.
At Delfin, all of this is provided in very heterogeneous classes where people of any age merge together from different cultures and backgrounds. I had the chance to meet young students like me, who came from every corner of the world, as well as, mid-age professionals with an open mind who were ready to share their life experiences with me, both in class or sitting in a pub after school.
Last but not least, I really enjoyed the wide range of social activities offered by the school. Every day you can choose among cultural visits, sports and parties… all you need in order to grasp the most authentic aspects of a country and – of course – its language!
