Learn English while experiencing all the sights, sounds and spirit of Bristol

If you are looking to develop fluency, target core skills, and truly experience your destination through its language, this dynamic course is your gateway to practical use of English.

This Special Focus Programme combines 20 lessons of General English with 10 lessons focused on language study inspired by your destination, for a complete intensive experience that is tailored to you and your personal reasons for learning.

There are plenty of social activities to help you make the most of your time in Bristol and Academic Extras to maximise your practice time, with activities including lectures, a pronunciation clinic, conversations over coffee, and the opportunity to get guidance on job hunting in the UK, university, and further education.

Your EC experience starts long before your first day at school. From the moment you book your course, we'll be there to help you prepare for student life in the best and smoothest possible way.

We know that the idea of arriving in a new country can be a little daunting, especially if you’re travelling alone for the first time. That’s why your EC family is there to guide and support you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

At any point during your arrival or stay you can call us on our emergency telephone number (you will be given this number when you book your course). We will work hard to make your arrival a straightforward and stress-free experience.

You can expect a warm, personal welcome and ice-breaker events to help you get to know your fellow students and EC staff. There will also be fun activities for the weekend before your first day at school, so you can get to know the other EC students a little better. Learn more about your first day at EC.

Where you choose to live is a central part of your study abroad experience. We have a variety of accommodation options to suit your lifestyle, budget and needs. You can live with other EC students or in a homestay with local English speakers.

Residences often have lively atmospheres suitable for anyone who loves socialising. Our accommodation options are convenient for public transport, making it easy for you to get to school.

If you choose a Homestay, you will live with local English speakers and experience an authentic lifestyle. You will live as your hosts live, eat what they eat, and spend time at home together. Many students enjoy the home-cooked meals and the extra feeling of security in a homestay.

Whether you've booked a homestay or residence, you'll always receive a warm, personal welcome. All our hosts are fully briefed on how to make you feel comfortable and well-prepared for your first day of lessons. At our residences, an EC representative will be available at the weekend to help you with anything you need and answer any questions.
