Cristiano Machado Soares

We have interviewed our lovely student Cristiano about his experience in London and at ABC School of English. We have learnt his opinion about the school and the city and we have got to know him better.
Thank you for taking the time to do the interview,


  • Could you please tell me something about yourself: studies, job, hobbies, and dreams?


I have a degree in business and a MBA in Management of Business.  I used to be an account manager in a bank branch in Brazil, but I’m on unpaid leave to be here.  My hobbies are travelling, hiking (before two knee surgeries), going out with friends, partying in general, football and music.


  • Why did you decide to come to London?


I decided to come to London because I came been here for a short time in 2012 and loved the city.  The second reason is that I thought it would be one of the best places to improve my English.

  • How do you find life in London?


It’s an expensive, exciting, extraordinary life I’m living in London.



I chose ABC because it offers Callan Method courses.


Callan Method is a strange way to learn English; at the beginning I was a little sceptical about it, but after 2 months I can say I’ve noticed great improvement in my English.

  • What are your plans for the future?

I’d like to get the IELTS certification and do one more MBA here in London.       


Ok Cristiano, thank you for your time!


Thank you very much!
