Silke web

Each week, students from all over the world visit the college to study and explore Hastings and the South East.

We recently had a chat with Silke, a student from Belgium, who studied at SCCH for one term during our English Plus course.

“Hi, I’m Silke and I’m from Beerzel, which is just south of Antwerp in Belgium.

I am 17 years old and have joined SCCH for one term on the English Plus programme, studying the A-Level option. In a typical week I study English for 16 hours along with Media Studies, Philosophy, Religious Studies and French.

When I was planning my study trip, I had a few other colleges to choose from, but Sussex Coast College was by far the most interesting. The building is unbelievably modern and I love the natural light. The facilities are excellent too; Dine servers really tasty food, there is a Subway if you are in a rush, and the coffee shop servers great coffee. It's something I could only dream about in my school in Belgium.

The lessons are fun, and I am getting a great feel for what it is like to study in England. My tutors are very friendly and always happy to help me when I don't understand something.

My host family lives quite close to the college, which is really handy. My host mother is a great cook and makes me feel very welcome. There is also a Turkish student who lives in the same house and we get along very well.

When I go back to Belgium, I will finish my current year and then next year I am hoping to study applied linguistics. My dream is to become a translator one day. I already speak Flemish, and I guess my English isn’t too bad, but I would like to speak and write English, French, German and Spanish fluently.”
