Dear FBE centre:
I am very happy that I could pass the ICFE exam. First of all, I want to thank you the FBE centre and our teacher Elena, we have overcome all the difficulties during the 5-months studying. As you know, all the candidates are Ukrainians and professional except me. So the result is still unbelievable for me.
I found FBE from internet. Because of my work; I only can study English part-time. So I decided to participate it. A Ukrainian teacher and a Chinese student seem a little bit strange. You may not understand why I didn’t choose a European centre. Nowadays there are many European centres which run the ICFE exam, but they couldn’t make sure if they could run it or not because they need get the minimum number of candidates. I am doing a master in Madrid and I need to take the exam before the end of October. There wasn’t a European centre which could open the exam. So I decided to go to Ukraine.
The next difficulty is the Visa, I am Chinese and I need to get the visa to go there. In addition I need to find a round trip in three days because I didn’t have more holidays. We don’t have the direct flight. I wasn’t sure if I could get there without problem. All of these difficulties made my nervous. But finally after 3 weeks, I got my visa (God bless me).
On the exam day, in the speaking part, I should spoke to a Ukrainian partner. It was a challenge! Because we have a different accent. At the beginning I couldn’t understand very well what my partner said. But thanks to God I finally got a good speaking level.
I have overcome all the difficulties. It seemed impossible for me, but now I have got the certificate! FBE is a responsible centre. It helped me a lot. My teacher sent me many useful practices. It is very important for me. Furthermore, when I was in Kiev, my teacher’s family helped me a lot, from the visa to residence. I couldn’t have a comfortable environment for studying without their help.
I will never forget this experience in my life and I really hope we will have a chance to see each other again.
Yours sincerely, Ming From Madrid
