  • Jie Huang

    I like EC's teachers, activities, and classes. They allow me to learn English quickly.I love this city. EC has a convenient location. Every day when I finish my classes I can go to the museums, which are in walking distance, and visit different areas. It is so easy to get everywhere.

    Renato

    I would recommend EC Malta 30+ because Malta is an amazing and friendly country, studying here is like being on vacation. The staff at the school listens to you and problems are solved fast. I’m enjoying my course, we discuss daily activities, travel, culture, food, and more.

  • 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!

    Elzana

    It was the best choice I've ever made to study English there. I'm also very amazed about how the school provides different kinds of activities - impossible to get bored in Cape Town. I was so amazed about Cape Town, and I wouldn't have to think twice about going back!

    Lea

    I’ve learnt lots since I arrived here. I was planning to take the FCE exam at the end of my course but now I’m studying to take the CAE (advanced exam). I am enjoying my course and I really like the extra lessons at EC Bristol because I can practice my speaking and listening.

  • 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.

    I decided to come to New York because it is one of the biggest cities around the world and there are tons of things to do here. There are tons of people from all over the world. It makes New York the most diverse and multi-cultural city around the world.

    Pascal

    I decided to stay two months extra because I had made good progress and was having a really good time here. Oxford is not a big city but it's really beautiful. It has a lot of parks, museums, you can punt, walk in one of the parks and visit pubs. My favourite place here is Port Meadows!

    I was so undecided about studying English overseas. However, I decided to go abroad and make my dream come true. I was looking for the best place to learn English, after a difficult search, I found EC Manchester and I chose it to be the place where I would study English.
