We offer a variety of accommodation options depending on which programme is taken.
Staying with a real English-speaking family is a great way to use English naturally and a great way to learn about the local culture. As family members students live as the family lives and eat what they eat. Students love being part of the family and enjoy the extra feeling of security that a real home gives. All our host families are properly checked for their suitability. Homestay families have rules for students to follow including curfews so students must be home at the right time at the end of the day. Parents can relax because they know that the host-family is watching out for their young learner's welfare.
Students stay at a local college/university while the college students are on summer vacation. EC students learn, eat and sleep on the same site. Students enjoy the great facilities and experience a real English-speaking university environment. Students are supervised on campus and have a fixed time they have to be in their rooms at night. Boys and girls must not enter each other's rooms or invite guests into their accommodation.
Residents are usually large buildings where many students stay. They often have a good atmosphere and are fun places to stay. Residences are a great place to mix with other students from around the world. They either have live-in leaders or on-site 24 hour security. There is less supervision on Freestyle London because this programme is for independent more mature students. Students are not allowed to invite guests into the residence and girls are not allowed to stay in the boys' rooms, and vice versa.
Only available in Malta, students enjoy all the comforts of a local hotel with simple transport links to school. For added security and assistance, live-in EC supervisors will stay at the hotel with students. Freestyle students have less supervision than Classic students because Freestyle is for older more mature students. Boys and girls must not enter each other's rooms or invite guests into their accommodation.
