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.

  • Marco

    My host family made me feel at home the whole time. They were amazing! I loved all the places that I visited in Canada, such as Joffre Lake, Rocky Mountains, Stanley Park, English Bay, Lighthouse Park, Deep Cove and Banff.

    Marco from Brazil stayed in Vancouver and studied General English

    Anas

    My English language now is much better than when I arrived in Dublin. The people are very friendly and life in Dublin is very easy. I love to walk in Henry Street, Temple Bar, Grafton Street and stay in Stephen’s Green park.

    Anas from Saudi Arabia stayed in Dublin and studied General English

    Chakrin

    When I first came to study English here, I was worried because I have never been in another country. However, now I am always happy. Time flies and I adjusted myself. Thanks everyone for helping me!

    Chakrin from Thailand stayed in Cambridge and studied General English

  • Pietro

    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.

    Alessandro

    I've been studying in Cape for two months. I would recommend studying here as the teachers are brilliant and the atmosphere is great. I like living here as it is close to the sea and it’s a cheap place to live.

    Alessandro from Italy stayed in Cape Town and studied General English

    Xavier

    I came to Cape Town to study English but surprisingly, it was also possible to have fun at school so easily, learn and improve your English without realizing of it! Teachers do their best and classmates do the rest. All of them become your new references, family, friends, sources of information.

    Xavier from Spain stayed in Cape Town and studied General English

  • Gonzalo

    I really enjoy EC school and find the classes interesting. I like EC because it has a magnificent location and it's near to my residence. I have met brilliant people, high qualified teachers and I am practising a lot of English. I will repeat in the future if I have the opportunity! 

    Gonzalo from Spain stayed in Brighton and studied General English

    Adriana

    I couldn't speak with Irish people because the accent was too difficult, now everything changed. I think I’ve improved my English since I arrived in Ireland. It's clear now to watch movies and listen music, for me it’s so easy hangout and be able to speak with English speakers.  

    Adriana from Brazil stayed in Dublin and studied General English

    Hana

    Every member of EC staff is very friendly and always help us. I have met many friends in EC. My English is improving because I try to talk to them in English. There are people from a lot of countries, from all over the world. We teach and correct each other which really helps us to improve.

    Hana from Japan stayed in Vancouver and studied General English

  • Ratchapon

    Coming to EC is convenient by metro, and the school is very modern and clean. It is easy to find good food and there are nice parks to eat in and relax. The staff helps me with everything and always answer my questions. I am very happy with my choice!

    Ratchapon from Thailand stayed in Washington and studied General English

    Natalia

    EC staff because they make me feel part of a family. The school is amazing because it allows the students to enjoy all the diversity and culture that Washington offers. In addition to my General English class, I'm taking IELTS preparation, English for Work, and I also have one-to-one lessons to improve my abilities.

    Natalia from Colombia stayed in Washington and studied General English

    Mauro
