From language study to a business degree
After studying English for one year, they have decided to take on another challenge.
All our students could choose to study an undergraduate degree in business in our sister school, Galway Business School if they wish to further their education to a university level. So did Guillermo and Caesar. They moved from studying English at GCI to studying a business degree at the Galway Business School, which is also located at our stunning premises by the sea in Salthill.
Living and studying in Galway has allowed them to explore Europe in their free time and play gigs across Ireland, Switzerland, and Spain. And Guillermo, who came to Galway with a high level of English (C1), has become such a popular figure at GCI that the school management even offered him a part-time job.
Guillermo and Caesar, who are from Guadalajara, had already lived in Canada for a year. But after analysing the streaming data for their music, they realised that most of their fans were in Europe.
So they decided to make a big change by moving to Galway!
“Most of our audience was in Poland,” says Guillermo. “It wasn’t a huge surprise, because the name of the band is Polish, even though we had three Mexicans in the band!
“We started to think about places to live in Europe. We had already taken French classes when we lived in Montreal, which is in the French-speaking part of Canada. So we looked at the idea of coming to Ireland. Our drummer had other commitments in Mexico and he decided not to come with us.”
