Hi everyone and welcome to ”On the go with EF”.
I’m Angelina and this is my first vlog. I’m in the beautiful city of San Diego in the southern parts of California in the
United States and I’m so excited to be here. Right now, I’m at the EF school here in San Diego. There are students from all over
the world attending this school. I’m a bit curious to find out what they do
in their home countries at Christmas since there aren’t that many weeks left. Okay. Let’s go find some students! I see some people over here by the pool.
It’s really nice and warm today. It’s so sunny. Hi! What are your names? My name is Sam.
Hi Sam. My name is Laia.
Hi. What’s your favorite thing to eat at Christmas? At Christmas I usually eat a kind of soup
made with meat and pasta. It’s so delicious. We have beef or something like that. Beef? Yeah?
Yes, with vegetables. Oh, nice. Is that typical Dutch?
Yes, kind of. We often eat in a restaurant with our family. We eat beef, for example, with my whole family.
It’s very cool. It’s a tradition in my family. Turkey and chicken ….
That’s good! At Christmas, I like ….
In French, it’s called “saumon fumé.” It’s a smoked orange fish.
It’s really good. I really like it. That sounds good. What’s your favorite Christmas tradition?
Something you really love to do? Opening gifts is my favorite moment.
Of course! Being with my family, being with someone you love.
Yeah, that’s nice. Just being with my family because I have
a lot of family in different states in Mexico. We’re all together, just spending time together. The whole family is off work and
we stay together for three days. We have a lot of fun. We cook together. I think it’s the same thing
every year, but it’s good. What made you decide to come to San Diego? To improve my English, meet new people,
learn about new cultures, and just see San Diego. It’s so beautiful. Because I want to improve my English. In San Diego, the weather is
the same as in Barcelona and for me, that’s the most important thing. It’s very different. We have a lot of gray days
in Germany. That’s why I’m here in San Diego. It’s more colorful than in my hometown.
The second reason is to improve my English. I hope to get up to a new level
before I fly back to Germany. I like California a lot. It’s next to Mexico, but here,
I have a lot of friends from Germany and France, so I’m always talking in English. The classes are always just
in English, like the iLab. Outside of classes, I only talk in English because
most of my friends only speak English. They don’t speak Spanish. Of course.
It’s very cool. Hey, San Diego. In case we forgot where we are.
They have different activities you can pick from. They have surfing. You can
go to the zoo or Sea World. You can also do tours of different
cities around the area, like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas. I saw that they have a really nice café
here, so I think I’m going to get a drink. Oooh. I’m going to get the iced chai. Hi. Could I please get an iced chai latte?
Sure! Thank you so much!
No problem. Mmmm. That’s so good. Oh, look. They’re playing volleyball.
Let’s see if I can join them. Hi, guys! Can I join you?
Yeah, sure. Cool! I’m not very good at this, but let’s give it a try. I’ve had an amazing time here
at the EF school in San Diego. I got to play volleyball and talk to
some really awesome students, which was super fun. I also had a really nice chai latte, so I want to know what your
favorite drink is to get at a café. The best answer is going to get a
sweatshirt like the one I’m wearing. Comment down below with your favorite
drink and don’t forget to watch next week. I’ll see you. Bye! Angelina goes surfing in California
