My mother is American so I’ve been surrounded by English since I was little. But I’m finding that my English is too stilted and I want to become more fluent, that’s why I applied to Explore. I’m a pianist and when I signed up, I was afraid that I wouldn’t get to practice during the program. But thanks to the team at Humber College, I have access to a piano and can practice on evenings and weekends.
The Humber campus is amazing. I go running along the lakeshore with some friends every morning to keep in shape.
Sometimes I experience culture shock, but the program helps me deal with it. We’re all in the same boat anyway!
Right now, I’m studying for a master’s degree in piano and musical analysis, and I also have courses to teach in English as a teaching assistant.
I really recommend Explore — you get much more out of the program than out of a year of study.
