I just graduated from high school in Saudi Arabia, and I planned to join NUS (one of the best universities in Asia). I would like to be best surgery; it's difficult but not impossible. I really like doing any kind of sport, because I believe in “A sound mind in a sound body"

Yes, I do like Singapore, I like the way how people respect each other and the rules, and how it's simple and safe to transport even for children. Also how it's easy talk and communicate with anyone.

Why did you choose to come and study at the British Council in Singapore?

I'm in a scholarship program from my government, and they chose British Council for me. I believe that they had chosen the best for me.

Of course I my English language has improved, especially in writing.

What do you find difficult about using English?  How did the British Council help you with this?

I don't really find anything difficult about using English, but I can say that the writing is a bit difficult. However, British Council helped me to improve my English language In general.

You attended a lot of myClub activities.  How did these help you? Did you have a favourite?

It did help me to meet new friends. I don't have a favourite one, because I focused on meeting new people and improve my language.

Do you have any advice or tips for people who are thinking of learning English or already doing so? 

Just don't be shy.

Of course I would, because I had a perfect experience with them. I liked the way they were teaching me. I had friendly relationship with teachers. However they would do the best to help any student.
