A Message from a PC Alumnus

The PC orientation also brought back a former PC student who is now an MUIC student, Mr. Rachan De Bruyn, to deliver a memorable life-at-PC speech and inspire incoming PC students. Mr. Rachan also conveyed his impression of his time at PC in one part of his speech: 

 “. . .in the moment that I became a PC student, my perception on learning English was completely changed. I came to acknowledge that frequent practice of skills such as listening, speaking, reading and writing is essential to master English. As this was new to me, I was frightened at first, but as I was very determined to be able to become an MUIC student, I pushed myself to the point that I was capable of keeping up with the lessons easily and understanding the use of English quickly, and as PC program also offers an international curriculum and professional teachers and allows the freedom to think differently, I could constantly prepare myself to be able to adapt to this international college . . .”
