Andrea Hirai Cocco, winner of hit reality show Grande Fratello in 2011, will study English at EC language school this month. 

A well-known TV and film personality with 111 thousand likes on Facebook and 2728 followers on Instagram, Andrea shot to fame as an actor after his reality TV debut. He has been cast in various roles and recently finished shooting a film, Io è Morto. Directed by Alberto de Venezia and co-starring Marina Suma, the film will be released in late 2014. Cocco also co-presents a cooking show on 'Arturo', and acts in web-series Forse Sono Io 2, with Vincenzo Alfieri and Gianmarco Tognazzi.

Andrea grew up in Rome before setting off to work as a model in Europe and Asia. He has always recognised the importance of English in his life and career; "As a model and actor hoping for more international recognition, I want to improve my English because it's so beneficial when you're working in the entertainment industry."

EC is a Maltese-owned chain of English Language Centres operating in 17 cities worldwide. Andrea has enrolled at EC in St.Julian's, and will be travelling to Malta to brush up on his English and sample some of the island's cultural highlights. "It's great that EC Malta offers intensive English courses and the chance to practise the language in an English-speaking environment. Plus Malta is a beautiful island only an hour away from home."

Andrea Cocco will arrive at EC Malta in the afternoon of Tuesday 10th of December to follow one-to-one English classes. He will also take part in the school's programme of activities and events with other language students from around the world.
