We had a student from England. She joined Bouquet Course which can be joined by anybody no matter whether he/she has any previous experience or education of floral arrangement. She successfully completed this course yesterday. Although she has been living in England for 13 years, she is originally from Congo Africa and planning to go back to Congo. After getting back to Congo, she wants to open a floral shop.
She already learned floral designs in England and showed me a certificate she got from the school in England. Incidentally many young ladies from Japan go to England to learn European floral designs because there are many floral schools in England PLUS lesson is done in English.
From time to time we have students from quite distant locations such as Guam, Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Korea, Japan and Colombia etc. This was the first time for us to have a student from England (or Congo). The certificate of completing all the requirement in Bouquet Course at our school MAY be of some help when she engages in floral business in Congo.
A couple of years ago, we had a student from Colombia, South America. She completed Wedding Party Arrangement Basic Course. She is already running a floral shop in Colombia where she does not find any floral design school. When we had a student from Malaysia several years ago, she completed Fresh Flower Arrangement Advanced Course. Most of such students from foreign countries already learned floral designs and engaged in floral business.
The student from Guam learned silk flower arrangement at my school. The common point among students from a long distant locations and foreign countries is they were scheduled to stay in the San Francisco Bay Area for a while due to some other “business” and their primary purpose of visiting this area is not for joining our school. They happened to be scheduled to stay in this area and want to take a chance of learning at our school. That is why they checked with internet about our school before coming to the San Francisco Bay Area and gave us inquiry about classes they want to join.
As far as they qualify to join the course they want to join, namely as far as our school judges she/he is eligible to join the course (in terms of minimum communication skill in English and previous education or experience relating to floral arrangements) , they can be enrolled and we welcome them to our school (Some courses require students to have experience or educational background relating to floral designs to sign up).
