International House London would like to welcome our new student Ailen Pedeflous, who has recently joined us from Argentina and is attending a General English Language course here today.
This October marks 20 years since Ailen’s grandmother Teolina first joined us here at IH London from Buenos Aires to study English for two weeks in 1996.
Teolina, who is now in her 80s, has been kind enough to share her progress report with us. She has proudly kept and maintained her certificate from her time studying at our former IH London site in Piccadilly.
Some of the feedback Teolina received at the time:
‘Lina is able to produce very accurate written work and she has quite a wide vocabulary. She is an enthusiastic learner and always attends classes. She is punctual and always keen to participate in discussions.'
We caught up with Ailen earlier today to hear about her story and what brings her to London:
‘I wanted to do something International and I wanted to come to London, and the idea came! Why not go to International House? We already know all about it!’
We would like to thank both Ailen and Teolina for sharing their heart-warming story with us and hope Ailen has a most memorable stay in London.
