    Student life in Manchester is quite comfortable. The facilities at the school are great, there’s no shortage of places to go shopping, and the nightlife is great. The class atmosphere is also great, with teachers that try their best to keep the classes entertaining and fun.

    EC Washington DC is a good quality school. In each lesson, we focus on a relevant and specific topic.  Moreover, EC Washington DC is in a good location because it is located in the downtown area that is full of famous museums, monuments and memorials. The transportation is very convenient.

    I will never forget my teachers, the other students and the fantastic location right by the ocean. If you like the sun and good weather, this is the perfect place. It's very safe and peaceful. My favorite class is the TOEFL preparation class. The teachers are great!

  • Mariam

    I improved my speaking skills with people from other countries, but also with British people. My favourite EC activity in class is that we work as groups most of the time, and it's more fun and we can understand different accents. I also I get to speak with native speakers in my accommodation.
