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.

  • Valeriya

    I like London cultural sights, and most of all I like the National Gallery. In the school, I am happy with everything, with the teachers, lessons, classmates and the wonderful staff. Every day is unforgettable!

    Valeriya from Russia stayed in London and studied General English

    Natchanok

    NYC has great transportation for someone like me who does not have a driver's license. I can easily take the bus or train. I like knowing different cultures and trying foods from different countries. I can easily try them here because NY is a multi-cultural city.

    Natchanok from Thailand stayed in New York and studied Academic English

    Mariana

    I can highly recommend EC, not only because of the learning itself, that is great by the way, but also because of the trips to many different places where you can go in a big group and have a great time with all of them. The trip to Manchester and Liverpool couldn’t have been better!

    Mariana from Brazil stayed in Bristol and studied General English

  • Serafettin

    Location is perfect! Since it's on Brodway, only a few minutes to times Square, you can reach the school anywhere. Even on rainy days, you don't even have to open your umberalla after exiting the subway, because it's that close. So I recommed EC New York!

    Serafettin from Turkey stayed in New York 30+ and studied General English

    Jean-Luc

    San Francisco is not too big; you can easily walk from one side to another side. It's not flat, there are hills so you can train your legs. The weather is not too hot and not too cold.

    Jean-Luc from Switzerland stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Satoko

    Compared to other language schools, EC has a special feature that setting up target age upper 30 years old, which is great! I can make friends very easily and all people I met here are mature, nice and attractive people. I made a lot of friends and the lessons are excellent!

    Satoko from Japan stayed in London 30+ and studied General English

  • Hyein

    I’ve been here for 3 months. I’m really happy and glad to be here. I think Boston is the best place to study English and make good friends. We can experience various activities and have great times. I want to make wonderful memories with new students!

    Hyein from South Korea stayed in Boston and studied Academic Semester/Year

    Laura

    I like the school because people from many countries study here. The teachers are good because they are interactive. My English now is better because I arrived with nothing. I have the possibility to talk with all people; I understand, and they understand me.

    Laura from Colombia stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Taithson

    I like it here because there are a lot of students with different nationalities. DC is a great city. There are a lot of museums, the public transportation is awesome. There are a lot of free activities in the afternoon that are fun to do in groups with my classmates.

    Taithson from Brazil stayed in Washington and studied General English

  • Chengjui Lin

    The school is helpful to improve my English because you can meet many cultures. Teachers help me to fix my pronunciation problems and my grammar. For example, in Asia, we don't use articles, so the teachers will tell me about my mistakes.

    Chengjui Lin from Taiwan stayed in San Francisco and studied General English

    Katja

    Living abroad gives me an extraordinary sense of freedom. Handling several small challenges every day is an adventure, like doing the laundry, finding the closest grocery store, using the right subway line. Out of my sight, it improves my flexibility, my spontaneity, and my networking skills. 

    Katja from Austria stayed in New York 30+ and studied Semi-Intensive English

    Hyelim

    Bristol is not as crowded as London, but also not as quiet as other small towns. Before I came to Bristol, I thought it was going to be a small and boring city. After a few weeks here, I've changed my mind. If you're a person who doesn’t like big city or small town you'll like Bristol.
