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.

  • Jamila

    I like EC's activities, teachers and mix of nationalities. EC offers various kinds of activities where students can make a lot of new friends. In addition, the teachers always prepare for the classes well. They try to make classes fun and interesting. 

    Jamila from Switzerland stayed in New York and studied Cambridge CAE Exam Preparation

    Noura

    I have improved a lot since I got here. I went from beginner to Elementary to pre-intermediate and I will continue to get where I want to be. Everyone here was lovely and the environment around me was so nice. People were helpful when you ask for anything.

    Noura from Saudi Arabia stayed in Montreal and studied General English

    Karen

    If you love the summer, the beach and friendly people, come to EC San Diego. It's the best option to learn English and enjoy life at the same time. I have improved my English speaking, vocabulary, writing and listening! For me, my favorite memory outside the classroom is graduation time.

  • Elgiz

    I choose EC because I was here last year and I liked it a lot. EC has a great community and activities, which are mostly free. Teachers here are very polite and they give you a real knowledge. I always recommend EC because you can really learn English here.

    Flávia

    This was the best choice of my life! Dublin is very cosy and the people are really friendly. It’s a perfect atmosphere to improve my English. Also, I really enjoy my class, my teachers are very helpful and explains everything very clear, making things easier to understand. 

    Flávia from Brazil stayed in Dublin and studied General English

    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.

    Mariam from Kuwait stayed in Bristol and studied General English

  • Gladys

    When you study abroad, you can learn a proper English, and also get to know the culture of the place and people from different nationalities. Some companies value more a person who study abroad, because they could take more risks and challenges in life.

    Saki

    There are many fascinating things such as museums, the CN Tower, an aquarium and great nature in this city, but the main reason why I love this city is that there are many people from all over the world. You can find a lot of culture located in places like Chinatown, Greek Town, Korean Town and so on.

    Saki from Japan stayed in Toronto and studied General English

    Lucas

    Since I came to Brighton I was really fascinated with the beauty and people of this city. Here I think is a really good place to live because we can find everything we need. I would definitely recommend to all of my friends and family

  • 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.

    Samanta

    Studying in Dublin has been an amazing experience, with focused lessons and friendly staff. I felt in love with this charming city; Dublin is the perfect combination of international environment, classic architecture and unique natural landscapes. I will definitely come back.

    Samanta from Italy stayed in Dublin and studied General English

    Guilherme

    The course is worth every penny spent. I had the best teachers, the best grammar lessons ever and the opportunity to discuss problems and solutions about our world. I had the chance to give back a little bit of love to the community in the Rainbow Dreamers Volunteer Project.
