Learn English at EC Bristol Language School!! Word of the week… Lush!

Hello EC Bristol gang, how are you on this fine day? Uh Oh!! I wrote a post on Friday and it’s not there! We’re not sure what happened but all you can see is the title so I’m going to try and remember what I posted.. Here we go.. First thing’s first: my word of the week last week was lush, any ideas what it could mean? Have a think and I will tell you at the end of this blog – WIN a high-five from me if you get it right.. everyone wants one of those! Well well well, WHAT a weekend we’ve had! It was a scorcher on Sunday, very very hot and sunny! I think most people went as red as a tomato because we’re not used to such lovely weather. It was beautiful. I was in Warwickshire which is North of Bristol and we’re hoping to take students there soon to see the amazing old buildings from history. There are castles and cobbled lanes – similar to those around Bristol – which are great to see and pretend you’re a princess or Robin Hood! Would you like to visit Warwick Castle? Let me know and we might take you there! I spoke to lots of the students yesterday they were all telling me how surprised they were at the wonderful weather, as if they were back at home. Some mentioned they studied in the sunshine in their gardens or on Queen Square outside EC Bristol and practiced their English when they met friends in town – lovely! Some of them just sunbathed though instead of revising, tut tut! It’s Tuesday here in Bristol now so all the new arrivals have settled down into their classes with new friends and they seem to be enjoying their time … Read more

Want to learn English and have lots of fun? Then welcome to EC Bristol!!

Hurrah! EC Bristol English school is born and it’s shaping up nicely. I’m Fay, this is my third week at EC Bristol and I’ve got to tell you – I’m loving every second of it! The number of students here is growing rapidly and this summer it’s going to be busy! We have some great new faces in our team here who are all settling in really well and we’re excited to welcome more soon. Learning English in the UK is one thing, but learning it in Bristol is quite another – it’s beautiful here! We’re set on the stunning Queen Square which is surrounded by giant trees and people enjoying the sun on the grass. Just over one side of the cobbled road is the harbour filled with stories of pirates and on the other is the city centre overflowing with shops – fantastic! It’s always buzzing with life here and being so close to everything you could possibly need it’s no wonder EC students love it. The English Courses here are increasing too – many more students are making the most of their time in England by choosing an Intensive course alongside plenty of other students who decide on a General course. They are even bringing family to study with them too!! Our accommodation programme is great too – we have some fantastic Host Families nearby and some very lavish student flats only metres away from our front doors! One of the best parts of the day is when you’ve finished studying hard and revised all your notes for the day… so can finally put your feet up! We’re getting some local companies on board to give special discounts to EC students from shops, bars and even activities for the weekend. So if you like to have fun … Read more
