Birkan studied the Cambridge IELTS course at EC Cambridge. Here he shares his experience of EC and the city of Cambridge.
First of all I would like to you to know my ultimate goal is do my masters degree in UK. I have studied for 6 months in order to pass the IELTS exam. It is a well known fact that in terms of academic research Cambridge is one of the best cities in the world. City covered by University campuses, libraries and many academic facilities which provide good ambiance for students to study. In addition city has plenty of leisure centre, sport complex, café, pub, night clubs and so on which if you are able to plan your time you will be able to enjoy as much as you want.
To be honest I would say I could not managed my time because of marvellous city and friends who come from all around the world. Most important point why I recommend you EC School is the School provides service of every kind for students. To clarify, if you are focused on only studying English, EC School has strong academic squad and tutor system which is absolutely beneficial to your level and also they focus on your weaknesses to develop your skills. The other thing is if you are interested in different cultures and curious about UK you will have variety of activities which are organised by the school. Most of the activities are free or cost next to nothing. Also for students who come from different continents EC School has marvellous trips around Europe. It is gold opportunity to visit other European countries. Since very first day of school you will take place in welcome dinner with the other new students and ambassadors then your journey becomes more and more interesting with your new friends.
Turning to accommodation, I stayed with host family. It was amazing experience to understand British Culture. In spite of the fact that I left we are still keeping in touch. They took care of me as their son and this service compare to other options significantly cheaper. Moreover you do not have to cook which is really good for people like me who are bad at cooking. Another good thing is the Cambridge accent absolutely perfect refined accent if you want to improve your pronunciation Cambridge is the right place.
To sum up, EC school’s service is definitely value . All staff are welcoming and solution oriented. Personally I guarantee you will never regret for that decision.
