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.

  • Bruno

    My stay in Cambridge has been amazing. I'm making friends from all over the world, learning different cultures and improving my English at the same time. EC teachers and staff are always looking after you. And the city is incredible, so cosy, beautiful and with a lot of activities to do.

  • Fukuyo

    London was as good as I expected. People living in London are very polite and museums are free. EC has a lot of enjoyable activities to make new friends. Teachers and staffs are very friendly, kind and patient.

    Etny

    I stayed in a residence and the experience here was really good thanks to the possibility to meet people who come from different countries. My recommendations for EC students are to practice English outside of the school and don’t speak their natives languages. 

    Etny from Colombia stayed in Malta 30+ and studied General English

    Prapasri

    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.

  • Manh

    There's an unlimited amount of things you can do here! I also live in the 1760 Summer Residence and I think it's good to be in Manhattan and close to everything. There are many students from different countries and they are friendly and open. The teachers are also good.

    Erika

    Learning English here is my dream coming true, and it's amazing! The best about Dublin is the opportunity to meet people from different countries, which it's an amazing way to practise your English and improve your cultural knowledge. I also have all the support from teachers and staff.

  • Faris

    I enjoyed every moment I had, specially the activities organized by EC. Going out with students from different places, exploring incredible San Francisco, helps us practise our English. The fun thing is we correct each other which helps you not to make that mistake again.

    Faris from Saudi Arabia stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Yuji

    I came to San Diego because I heard about the great weather and nice people. At the school, we have a lot of interesting conversations in the classroom and we can hang out with the teachers during the activities. I will not forget all my teachers and friends that I made while studying here.

    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.
