During the spring semester of my freshman year, I went to Chit Chat Club four times every week. C3 is a place where you can improve basic English communication skills. In the fall semester, I challenged myself to go to English Forum twice every week. At EF you have discussions based on topics the staff prepare. It was a great chance for me to interact with seniors who have had study abroad experiences too. Many times, I would feel frustration from not being able to express my opinion fully however, that became an energy force for me to study harder. After each 1 hour session, I would be able to naturally think in English in my mind. I highly recommend to gain confidence in your English communication skills at C3 then to challenge yourself at EF!
