"I remember my teachers were nice. They always smiled and talked to me all that time. Manuela's classes were tough but I have learned a lot. I also remember my friends. Because they comes from different countries, they have different opinions, and that was very fun to listen to.
"When you want to learn English, it is better to talk to people who are from different cultures. It is fun to learn other cultures. Do not talk to people who speak the same language unless you speak English LOL! One more thing, people should enjoy themselves while in the USA."
