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.

  • 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.

    Sabrina

    The people are very helpful and kind. My host family is 30 minutes away from school, and I like the way because the bus goes along the sea. I really liked the Brighton pier because you can play different games or of course eat some fish and chips.

    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.

    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.
