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.

  • 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

    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.

    Rebeca

    EC is a very good school and the location is amazing. The teachers are very friendly and open, you can feel comfortable with them. I would recommend EC because you can meet a lot of people and they make you feel safe. 

    Rebeca from Brazil stayed in Los Angeles and studied General English

  • Mauro

    I’ve been in EC Boston for 5 months. I really like EC Boston and, in my opinion, it's the best English academy in the USA. It has really good people and good teachers from different countries.I hope you like the academy and that you guys have a wonderful time at EC Boston!

    Mauro from Venezuela stayed in Boston and studied Academic Semester/Year

    Carles

    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.

    Carles from Spain stayed in Malta 30+ and studied General English

    Junyoung

    In my opinion, Toronto is the best place to learn English compared to other places because it's the biggest city in Canada, so it's really multicultural. You don't worry about discrimination or safety, and everyone is so kind. They always want to help you.

    Junyoung from South Korea stayed in Toronto and studied General English

  • Barbara

    I felt from the first moment being welcome in the school and my host family. Everyone was so charming, helpful and respectful! My 2 weeks here were too short. I have to come back as soon as possible. Thank you for all that you gave me!

    Barbara from Switzerland stayed in Dublin 30+ and studied General English

    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

    Francisco

    I started with a low English level, but my skills have improved a lot. I have made a lot of progress in listening, writing and grammar. I'll go back home to continue studying business administration. English is very important for me, so I’m going to be grateful to EC forever.

    Francisco from Spain stayed in Bristol and studied General English

  • Pema

    The greatest thing about New York is that there is always something fun to do! Some of the best things are watching incredible musicals, walking through beautiful Central Park, and exploring the different neighborhoods throughout the city.

    Pema from Denmark stayed in New York 30+ and studied General English

    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.

    Kira from Switzerland stayed in San Diego and studied

    John Matteo

    I decided to go at EC because it offerse many courses and its environment is wonderful. London is one of the capitals most important in the world. As a multicultural city it's easy to share knowledge with many and different countries. One place to hang out in London is Leicester Square.
