One of our longest-serving students, Adele, has this year discovered a great passion… writing… in English. She has been coming to the school for lessons for over three years and has always enjoyed her lessons with us. This year however, her passion for English writing developed and now she feels confident enough to share her experiences with you as a blogger. Read below about Adele’s experience and enjoy her fantastic writing!
I started my experience at Scrambled Eggs three years ago.
I was searching for an English course to improve my knowledge, my listening and speaking skills, when among several schools the name of a school caught my attention, Scrambled Eggs, what a particular name for a school!
The smart and innovative method to teach using the interactive board seemed right for me. I thought it was too difficult to study with books for hours after work, so I found this new method nice and simple.
The thing that certainly convinced me was the location. To think of studying English before or after an appetizer or a drink in Navigli, such a good location, could transform going to school into a pleasure.
I started my group course with a lot of difficulties in speaking but also in relationships with other students.
For a woman of my age to interact with young students, talking about different topics and also about my life was not easy, but the friendly atmosphere that I found helped me a lot.
The teachers are young, nice, smiley, well prepared, motivated and very motivating.

They have the ability to motivate you to do even better and doing my homework I discovered my new passion: writing.
I couldn’t believe it! I like writing and I like writing in English!
Of course I improved speaking and listening as well!
In the school, teachers come from different countries and in three years I have met all of them. I’ve learnt to understand American and English accents and with their attitude and their approach to teaching they have contributed to improving my listening.
I have experienced also one-to-one lessons that helped me not only learning English but many other things.
Now even if I’m still not able to totally understand videos and news on the radio, I’m satisfied, I have started to enjoy the language and my studying English has become a pleasure!
My speaking is still confused, and I have to improve it again and again and certainly I’ll continue on my path. With Scrambled Eggs? Of course!
