Change is good. Challenging yourself to achieve greater things is a good trait to have and although your goals take time and dedication, the feeling once you have achieved them is immensely satisfying.
Within a year of the pandemic loosening its grip, we are very, very happy to share the news that EC London has opened its doors at its prestigious, historic new site at No.1, Islington High Street, London. The new school gives the organisation the capacity to nurture more students wishing to learn English language skills in London. This was a goal before we knew what Covid was, and so the fact that it has been able to be realised so soon, is very welcome. Although during the crisis we managed to pivot and teach many students remotely, we do love to be back in the classroom and our EC Live offering has matured and is available in multiple time zones and mirrors many of the same courses we offer in-person.
he London language school is newly refurbished, has interactive TVs in all classrooms and a lift to all floors with a floor being dedicated to our age 30+ students. This means they have their own classrooms, refreshment area and lounge with a circular turret with views over this bustling part of the capital city. It has more classrooms that our Euston site and it will be exclusive to EC.
The EC London facility offers courses for all ages and includes:
- General English
- English for Work
- English in the City
- Academic Semester
- Exam preparation IELTS and Cambridge
All other aspects students expect from EC remain too:
- Access to MyEC from booking
- Online Placement Test
- Orange Carpet Experience
- Extra language workshops and activities
- Social and cultural programme
- Welcome activity Free WiFi and use of computers
- Free access to Microsoft Office (for the duration of the course)
The location of the school is equidistant to the accommodation options and in very close proximity to a whole host of entertainment venues and places of interest in the trendy Borough of Islington including:
- Angel Central shopping mall
- Cosmopolitan eateries
- Comedy clubs and live music venues
- James Freeman Gallery
