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.

  • 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.

    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.

    Oskar

    I chose EC because a friend recommended. The exchange with all the international students was a great opportunity to learn about new cultures. The great variety of activities created the possibility to combine learning with fun experiences.

  • 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.

    Dulce

    Montreal is a beautiful place. The weather is cold but I love when it's snowing. The people are so welcoming and friendly. My teachers were excellent, and I learned a lot from them. I liked this experience, my host family, and my school. I really want to come back!

    Lap Quoc

    When I came here I couldn’t speak any English. I really appreciate the teachers for helping me, I’ve improved my English a lot. Coming here meant not just merely learning English. I’m really delighted to have met many friends and I have had so much fun at EC Boston.

  • 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.

    Masayuki

    I think the 30+ programme is a good system and you can make a lot of foreign friends. I enjoy sharing each culture like food, sports, and what we have experienced in our countries. Also I am always supported by all of my teachers and staff. They are so friendly and fun.

    Jeanine

    I have improved my English progressively. I never imagined that I'd make friends from different countries, sharing our time and practicing English outside of the school. I lost the fear to learn English and it's exciting to realize that I can communicate my ideas and feelings in other language.

    I arrived here not knowing anyone, but it soon feels like home. EC Malta 30+ was different from what I expected. I’ve had the greatest experience ever and made the best friends a person could have. All the teachers are AMAZING! They really care and are here to help you succeed.
