For your career-Wall Street English

My name is Tina, I am 39 years old and Business Director at a sourcing company. I am also a VIP learner here at a WSE center in Shanghai.


Why am I learning English? Well honestly it was because I got really frustrated at work!I didn’t receive a promotion. There was this other woman… Really nice and good at her work, but I knew I was better qualified.At the same time I sort of knew that there wasn’t much I could say. I was with an international company, she spoke English and I didn’t…


I decided not to be mad, but rather do something about it.

The road to the VIP program

Wall Street English wasn’t my first choice. I was like, how hard can it be?! I surfed the web for online courses. I bought books. I downloaded I don’t know how many apps.


I spent hours trying to study by myself, but after a couple of months I sort of realized I wasn’t really learning anything.

I don’t remember how I first came to hear about WSE. It might have been that I saw a billboard or something on my way to work.


I had been somewhat reluctant to go to a school. I don’t want to be treated as a student.


But when I looked up WSE and heard what others said, I realized that this is not a school. It is more like a club for learning. I came here for professional reasons, and I am being treated like a professional.

"…without structure or feedback it is really hard to learn"

Trying to learn by myself was a total waste of time and money! And as a businesswoman that is something I really don’t like. I certainly had the motivation, but without structure or feedback it is really hard to learn.

The VIP program gave me structure

I think what Wall Street English and the VIP program gave me was structure, and a systematic learning approach.


I think I learned more here in a couple of weeks than during all the months I was trying by myself.It has been great in so many ways.


I have met so many likeminded people and I have learnt so much. Not only English, but also about other cultures. I guess one could say that I came here because I got frustrated, but I have stayed because it makes me happy.I have grown so much both as a professional and as a person.


And yes, thanks to Wall Street English, I did finally receive that promotion!
