Beatriz came to EXPLO to improve her English, but says she is learning so much more than just language skills in her current courses.
I have always really wanted to work on my English and become better at it, but I found practicing it very difficult and monotonous. So I figured EXPLO would be the best place for me to improve my English.
I am learning English differently here in that I am taking classes that are in English. The combination of my passion for the subjects I am taking alongside my desire to learn English give me enough drive to learn the language, and when I am reading up on topics pertaining to my classes, I am reading them in English, so it is like I am killing two birds with one stone.
I am currently taking Psychology and Economics. I have always been interested in the manner in which the world works, how the past predicts the future and how cultural ideals affect economies. I think we are at a point in the world where so many things are happening and we are trying to figure out why. I firmly believe the answer lies within psychology. Once we understand why people do the things they do, we will be better equipped to address our present circumstances.
