Student Testimonials

Have a look at what students say about their EC journey to becoming more proficient in the English language during their time with us.

  • Jamila

    I like EC's activities, teachers and mix of nationalities. EC offers various kinds of activities where students can make a lot of new friends. In addition, the teachers always prepare for the classes well. They try to make classes fun and interesting.

    The staff at EC New York are always helpful and friendly. If you have any problems, the staff always tries to solve them in an efficient and friendly way. There are many people from all over the world and she can easily get to know them.

    Hanson

    I think Vancouver is a beautiful, and peaceful city because Vancouver's nature is so good and fresh. There are a lot of parks in the city where you can hang out with your international friends. If you want to learn English, I recommend studying in EC Vancouver. You will make unforgettable memories!

  • Jean-Luc

    San Francisco is not too big; you can easily walk from one side to another side. It's not flat, there are hills so you can train your legs. The weather is not too hot and not too cold.

    Luciana

    Without a doubt, I'll indicate this course to other people because I liked the structure, the people working there were always polite, the teachers, the location was important thing, it's near a terminal and underground. The experience at EC was perfect, more than I expected.

    Luciana from Brazil stayed in London 30+ and studied General English

    Kim

    I wanted to come to Los Angeles and Santa Monica is the most beautiful and peaceful place in Los Angeles. My teachers are very good and friendly. I'd recommend my EC to my friends because of the location and the school is huge.

  • Francisco

    The people, the school and the city are things I'll never forget. I'm totally glad to have come here and it has been the best decision I have ever taken, without a doubt. When I speak about EC I am speaking about home, bonds and friendships that will last forever.

    Gulay

    I like EC San Francisco school because the teachers are amazing and helpful. I improved my English – I didn't speak English when I first arrived. Now I am better, I can explain myself. I would recommend EC.

    Junyoung

    In my opinion, Toronto is the best place to learn English compared to other places because it's the biggest city in Canada, so it's really multicultural. You don't worry about discrimination or safety, and everyone is so kind. They always want to help you.
