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.

  • Kira

    I have discovered that hanging out with students from all over the world is the best way to improve your English. The school provides activities like surfing and playing beach volleyball. The classes are vivid and educational and my teachers have been very friendly and supportive.

    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

    Maria Jose

    I'm very thankful for the classes here because they have a very high-quality of teaching. It's impressive how much I've learned in 3 months. During your life in NY, at every step you make in the city, you always remember everything you learned in class. That's why you realize they're very effective.

  • Luciano

    What I liked the most about the teachers was the experience that I have got. It's not only 'standard' teaching and 'passive' learning, but a lot of interactions. I had good teachers that adapt the lesson to my questions quickly.

    Pascal

    I decided to stay two months extra because I had made good progress and was having a really good time here. Oxford is not a big city but it's really beautiful. It has a lot of parks, museums, you can punt, walk in one of the parks and visit pubs. My favourite place here is Port Meadows!

    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

  • 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

    Paola

    The experience has been amazing because people is very friendly. I really enjoy the teaching methodology used because the teachers are very practical and they interact with us all the time. Dublin is also wonderful because we can travel to other countries. It's fantastic!

    Paola from Colombia stayed in Dublin 30+ and studied General English

    Fabio

    Yes of course I would recommend EC Malta English School because it is one of the best schools on the island, thanks to the great organisation and the quality of the courses and the several different Leisure and Academic activities they offer.

  • Kim

    I wanted to come to Los Angeles and Santa Monica is the most beautiful and peaceful place in Los Angeles. My teachers are very good and friendly. I'd recommend my EC to my friends because of the location and the school is huge.

    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.

    Miaomiao

    I've become more confident in my daily communication in both English and French. I am not shy anymore! The things I've learned here are very practical and I can use them every day. I really want to thank the staff and my classroom teacher for being so kind and patient.
