Everything that happened to me in San Diego was just lovely and unforgettable, especially the time I spent with the Allens! The Allens are such a wonderful family; they treat people wholeheartedly and that’s why I love them so much and still stay in touch with them! During my 1-month stay in San Diego, not only did I improve my English, I also learned how nice people can be when meeting a total stranger! They treated me like their family and they became like my American Family! I love them so much and wish to have a chance to see them again!
I had the privilege of having lived in San Diego, especially in the house of the Allen Family. From the first contact I felt welcomed and like a family member. They are wonderful people who care about other people’s welfare and are always willing to help with anything you need. I stayed in San Diego just under one month, but it became so special to me.
When I was 17 years old, I came to the United States to study high school at San Diego Academy. The school has a good ESL program to help international student to improve their English, and the school has a lot of interesting and beneficial activities for students. I lived with the Allen family and they gave me a lot of help to learn English. I lived with them for around 18 months and they cared for me like they were my real family. I still remember and I had a lot of wonderful memories with them! I hope I have a chance to see them again.
When I chose to study abroad in San Diego, I have to admit that at the beginning, I was a little bit afraid to leave my life in Switzerland… But fortunately, I was placed with a very friendly family. The Allens did all they could for me to feel at home. They took care of me and took me to visit some beautiful places around San Diego. They were always responsive to me and that was a good opportunity for me to practice my English. I really enjoyed my time in San Diego!
Studying abroad can be the experience of a lifetime, especially when you are at the right spot to expand your horizons and learn a new language. San Diego was the place I chose because it is a beautiful city with nearby beaches and landscapes. Living with the Allen family was an incredible opportunity that facilitated me the opportunity to learn English in an enjoyable instance. They are a caring family that would help students as much as they can. I remembered that I went to visit various city points thanks to the Allen family. They always welcomed me and made me feel at home.
