Study Shark Blog #2 10 Things I wish I knew This Time Last Year for JC

Bonjour mes amis. Our second blog comes from Katie, who sat her Junior Cert in June this year. I love Katie’s social media accounts – a mix of lifestyle, study, fashion and beauty. We started chatting on social media a while back and the gas thing is – she doesn’t even study French! As soon as I came up with our #studysharks idea – I thought of her immediately.

Study Shark Blog #1 The Set-Up to Study Smart

To kickstart our Study Shark Blogs let me introduce you to Sean. I’m his number 1 fan! I met him on SC through bants and chats and he attended our LC Dublin Workshops last year (H1 in French of course!). When he obtained 625 points in the LC last year I knew we needed his brain! He agreed to join our EF team and take part in our Dublin Workshops this past year – sharing his tips/tricks to study at the workshops and in our exclusive FB live streaming as part of the workshop programme. We are thrilled that he is taking part again this coming year.

An email that must be shared with ye!

Whenever a new student starts with us we always ask them who recommended Essential French to them – so we can send on a voucher as a small “merci”!
