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.

  • Muege

    I'll take a Cambridge exam in a month and I'm confident. The lessons are very well organised. I see my improvements every day and that encourages me. Furthermore, the location of the school in South Beach is perfect. It's close to the beach, shops, cafes and bars.

    Natalia

    I’m very happy, I've moved up from low intermediate to high intermediate! The location of the school is perfect, right in the heart of Boston. The teachers and staff are always willing to help you! Every day they give you a big smile and encourage you to continue improving.

    EC is a very good school and the location is amazing. The teachers are very friendly and open, you can feel comfortable with them. I would recommend EC because you can meet a lot of people and they make you feel safe.

  • 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.

    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!
