Four years ago, there was only one desire in our mind. To do our master studies abroad. However, there was just one problem. English language was a nightmare for both of us.
To try to fix this issue that accumulated over the years, we decided to go on a Work and Travel program in the USA. Our agency connected us with these wonderful people to help us prepare for the interview in the US embassy. And that’s where it all started.
In order to bring you closer to our knowledge of English language (or more precisely ignorance), we were barely able to compose a simple sentence. We were scared to make a mistake, and our vocabulary was not developed at all. They helped us to get prepared for this interview and we got our visa! However, we promised Crown Education that we will come back right after the program. And that’s what we did.
Once we came back, our English knowledge was estimated to be at the level A2. We made improvements, but not enough. To get enrolled at any master program, we needed at least B2 or even better C1. This seemed to be impossible for a short period of time. But we believed in ourselves. When we didn’t, they believed. We spent a year and a half working hard in this school trying to get ready for the IELTS exam.
At this moment, we are at Jönköping University in Sweden, doing our master’s degree, and we both have two exams left to graduate. Without these people, especially teacher Jelena, we wouldn’t be here. She completely dedicated herself to us and never found it difficult to work overtime and to always adapt to our busy schedule. But most important, she believed in us. Surround yourself with the right people and everything is possible.
We warmly recommend you Crown Education, just stay motivated to hit your goals and they will make a miracle, even when you sometimes lack the same.
