Subin, South Korea
Hi Subin! Where are you from? Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Subin Park, and I’m from Yeoju, South Korea. I’ve been studying at Atlas Language School for 3 months, and I’ll be staying here for 3 more. I really like to travel and to get the chance to see new places, to be around new people. I’ve been to Milan, London, Vienna, and Venice, and I can’t wait to travel even more! I just love to look at the architecture, the colours, the textures… and to just sit back and watch people live their lives.
What do you like about Malta?
Even though I am used to travelling on my own, living in Malta has been a new and challenging experience for me. Now I have to cook for myself, clean after myself, go to the store to buy stuff… and I also have to put myself out there, meet new people, and make new friends. This was something I didn’t really know how to do before, but ever since I came to Malta I’ve become much better at it! And it helps a lot that everyone here is super friendly, interesting, and eager to meet new people. It’s also a great way to improve my English since almost everyone I meet is from a different country.
Are you glad you came to Atlas Malta?
During the three months that I’ve been here at Atlas, I’ve noticed a huge improvement in my English! Now I’m able to read books in English, go to the movies, and actually understand what the characters are saying… and it’s all thanks to Atlas Language School Malta!
Was there anything you found surprising about Malta when you first arrived?
A funny, new thing I’ve noticed here in Malta is that people are much more vocal and noisy at the movie theatre. And they actually clap during the film! I was a little scared the first time I went because back in Korea everyone is super quiet. I just hope that once I go back, I don’t start screaming and talking at the movies!
Would you like to stay here after your course ends?
I’m loving being in Malta, but I can’t wait to go back home. I really miss my dog, Pepe, my family, and the FOOD!
What is your favourite place in Malta?
Sometimes when I get a little homesick, sad, and blue I like to go to the beach behind the school, Pembroke Pool. I’ve been there a lot! I was fair-skinned when I got here, and now I’m noticing a tan!
What do you think about Atlas?
Thanks to the morning class schedule, the students here get a lot of free time to do other stuff… and it’s very good for people who also work in Malta! So I would definitely recommend the school to my friends. I would also maybe consider staying here a little longer. I just love the people, the island, and the warm weather!
