How long have you lived in Shanghai and how long have you studied at Britannica?

I’ve been in Shanghai for a year and a half and have been studying at Britannica since I first arrived.

It affects the way I look at the world around me. Mostly it helps me to understand and be aware of the differences in culture and people around the world.

How does Britannica compare to your previous school?

My old school was very small and had nothing like the sports facilities at Britannica. The class sizes in Italy composed of about 25 students. I found it difficult to learn there as the teachers never treated you as an individual, unlike here at Britannica.

Italy may be one of the best places on earth, we have everything! Beaches, mountains, museums and the best food you can find.
