What’s it like learning English in Brighton during Covid?

Wondering what’s it like learning English in Brighton during Covid? EC student, Katja, shares her story of studying at our Brighton English school at this unique time.   My enjoyable English course in Brighton in the times of Corona When I was planning my language stay to improve my English skills, (unfortunately) the destinations were limited because of the travel restrictions. So, one of the options, which I got from my agency, was to learn English in Brighton. A lovely town on the south coast of England with a beautiful beach, nice cafés and restaurants and wonderful countryside. And it is all easily reachable with the Coaster bus every 10 minutes! Of course, I was worried about doing a language stay in times of Corona. However, today I know that this was just a part of my experience but not what had a lasting effect on my time in Brighton. More important are my experiences with my classmates and the passionate English teacher Sam at school. Also the time I spent together with my host fathers, or outside school with new friends, has been great. At School EC Brighton was very accommodating when we came from Switzerland. We had to stay in quarantine for the first two weeks at our host family’s house. We got our English textbook personally delivered by the school manager so that we can start online lessons immediately. The school made also sure that we can stay as comfortable as possible in our host families. It wasn’t the start we had expected. However, we managed well because they were well-prepared with all the different online teams, the online material and the remote speaking sessions. We also got a really helpful introduction at the beginning, so we had all information which we needed. Of course, after quarantine, … Read more

In the north Laines there are so many and little sweet shops. If you want to go shopping then it is easy in the big shopping centre at Churchill square. There’s something for everyone ? The city by the sea is really beautiful, I can walk along the seafront and I love it. And for outside there are so many nice pubs and clubs.     This city is never boring.”       The North Laines of Brighton are a unique and sought after hotspot of the city. With so many retailers from local studios to high end fashion, the Laines truly is a treasure trove of bustling business. If you prefer to shop in generic stores that can be found anywhere, Churchill Square has all the familiar global dominating brands. Here at Manchester Street we are literally a stones throw from the sea, with the Kemptown night life and Brighton city centre on your doorstep. As Romina describes, this city truly is ‘never boring’.
