georgina's story

Continuum College offers one of the largest and most prestigious international and english language programs in the United States. It features a wide variety of programs to help students like Georgina Sanchez improve their English skills.

Georgina Sanchez came to the United States from Guadalajara, Mexico, when her husband landed a job at Microsoft. She also wanted to find work in her new country but felt her English wasn't quite solid enough. 

"I had trouble when I was speaking English," she said, "so I was looking for a program to improve my language skills. 

Georgina had previously worked at a large accounting firm in Mexico, so she decided to enroll in the Intensive Business English Program at the UW. It was a great fit. 

"It surpassed my expectations," she said. "I learned a lot about global trade and had the opportunity to practice my English. I also met people from all over the world." 

Georgina also now feels more confident in job interviews.

"I feel more fluent now," she said. "I'm ready for success in my career."
