Hey y’all, I’m Nikita.
I moved to LA a year ago to learn English. I picked LA 'cause it’s a big city with tons to do.
I was excited to start my classes, but I quickly realized I had made a mistake. The school was located in a far-off suburb, and it took me over an hour to get there each day.
By the time I finally got to school, I was exhausted. It was hard to get out of bed and drag myself to class. I didn’t have time to grab a coffee or a snack before class started, so I was usually hungry and tired.
The classes themselves were also boring as hell. We just followed the textbook and did exercises. I didn’t feel like I was learning anything new. I was just repeating the same things over and over again.
After a few months, I was burnt out. I was paying a lot of money for a school that wasn’t working for me.
I did some research to find a cheaper school, but I couldn’t find anything. Then I talked to a friend, and he told me about a school that he went to. It was a lot cheaper ($ 135 per week) than my old school, and I only had to go twice a week.
I decided to switch schools, and I’m so glad I did. My new school is way better. The classes are cool, and the teachers are really passionate about teaching English. We do fun activities outside of class, like going to museums and cultural events.
I’m finally learning English. I’m not stressed out about money anymore; I have time for food! And I’m actually having fun in class.
