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.

  • Barbara

    I felt from the first moment being welcome in the school and my host family. Everyone was so charming, helpful and respectful! My 2 weeks here were too short. I have to come back as soon as possible. Thank you for all that you gave me!

    Barbara from Switzerland stayed in Dublin 30+ and studied General English

    Kira

    I have discovered that hanging out with students from all over the world is the best way to improve your English. The school provides activities like surfing and playing beach volleyball. The classes are vivid and educational and my teachers have been very friendly and supportive.

    Kira from Switzerland stayed in San Diego and studied Cambridge CPE Exam Preparation

    Etny

    I stayed in a residence and the experience here was really good thanks to the possibility to meet people who come from different countries. My recommendations for EC students are to practice English outside of the school and don’t speak their natives languages. 

    Etny from Colombia stayed in Malta 30+ and studied General English

  • Patrick

    Manchester is a great city, there are a lot of shops and the centre is beautiful. There are also some museums, very interesting. If you like to go out with your friends, there are a lot of good places. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your time in Manchester!

    Patrick from France stayed in Manchester and studied General English

    Saki

    There are many fascinating things such as museums, the CN Tower, an aquarium and great nature in this city, but the main reason why I love this city is that there are many people from all over the world. You can find a lot of culture located in places like Chinatown, Greek Town, Korean Town and so on.

    Saki from Japan stayed in Toronto and studied General English

    Junior

    There are so many things to say about this country but first I would say that I was very surprised that every day in my neighborhood, somebody tells me Good Morning or Hi. When I’m waiting for the bus or going back home there is always someone who’s going to talk to me. 

    Junior from Belgium stayed in Washington and studied General English

  • Olivia

    I've been in Boston for almost 6 months. I’m living in the EC apartment in the North End, it’s pretty lovely and comfy and the neighborhood is just perfect. I’m so glad to be here and hope the new students will have an experience as awesome as mine.

    Olivia from Switzerland stayed in Boston and studied Academic Semester/Year

    Alessandra

    I love San Francisco because the landscapes are beautiful. The beach is here, the life-style is nice and people are easy going. What counts is the inside – people are not worried about money, cars, fashion, etc.

    Alessandra from Brazil stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Naoki

    EC Malta has students that come from many countries, that’s why I decided to book a course to improve my English with international classmates. When it come to teachers, I really like their style of teaching and skills. They make us happy, so you won't feel bored in the class!

  • 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. 

    Jamila from Switzerland stayed in New York and studied Cambridge CAE Exam Preparation

    Faris

    I enjoyed every moment I had, specially the activities organized by EC. Going out with students from different places, exploring incredible San Francisco, helps us practise our English. The fun thing is we correct each other which helps you not to make that mistake again.

    Faris from Saudi Arabia stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Mauro

    I’ve been in EC Boston for 5 months. I really like EC Boston and, in my opinion, it's the best English academy in the USA. It has really good people and good teachers from different countries.I hope you like the academy and that you guys have a wonderful time at EC Boston!
