Name: Gerald Ifeanyi Chikwendu
Why did you choose to study in Ireland?
I wanted to improve my English and I heard Ireland is the place to be.
What did you love about living in Ireland?
The people of Ireland are very nice and helpful, the only thing that gave trouble at first was the weather, then I got used to it.
What did/do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
In my home country normally I play table tennis, but for me in Dublin I didn’t really find time to do that, so I play FIFA 18 at my friend’s house who lives across the street.
What is your favourite food?
Rice and curry, however I was mostly served potatoes, all the different kinds of them.
What is your fondest memory?
In my home country Halloween is not celebrated, and it is here and it was a joyful day even the teachers dressed up.
If you had any advice for future DIFC students, what would it be?
Work hard and you will achieve success.
“I chose to study in Ireland to improve my English and my favourite part of studying here is the different methods of teaching, which is quite different to my home country. If you work hard here you will achieve success.”
