Florent was a student at EC Bristol for a week and he would like to share his feelings about his studying experience at our EC Bristol centre. He comes from Bordeaux (France) and play in a football team as semi-professional. Florent is also currently doing an internship at EC Bristol. I love this school because there is a good atmosphere and good teachers. I especially love the fact that there is a mix of nationalities in the classroom. This school has a good environment to study. Staff were always there to answer to our questions (at Reception and other offices). I loved my week in the school. Thanks for all. Find out more about General English courses in Bristol.

I personally love the seaside. I am the biggest fan of walking in the sand, smelling the sea, letting sand trickle through my fingers. So when I came to EC Bristol to start my internship, one thing was sure: I had to visit one of the closest coastal cities as soon as possible! That’s why last Saturday, my lovely intern-colleague Carolin and I took the bus to Weston-super-Mare. After a one and a quarter hour drive the bus stopped right next to the beach and I have to admit: we were as happy as a sandboy! The sun was shining and the seagulls mewed every bit as happily as the kids in the rollercoaster right next to the beach. Very cute fact: on the beach there were super sweet donkeys on which kids could ride on (well, actually I would have loved to do so, too)! Carolin and I couldn’t return to Bristol without having a culinary seafood taste, too. So we bought fish and chips (it tastes so much nicer on the seaside than in the inner land!) and afterwards sat down on the terrace of Dr. Fox’s Tearoom and had some tea and scones. What an amazing place, we highly recommend it. What a day!
I didn’t want to finish my internship at EC Bristol without a trip to London. So I went relatively inexpensively by bus to the English capital: London. Under the typical English weather, I was able to take many photos of the sights. The Big Ben and the Tower Bridge were particularly impressive. Unfortunately the time was to short to see the entire city but I had loads of fun! =)
Hi my name is Cintia. I´m 20 years old and I live in Germany. I was an intern at EC Bristol for 5 weeks and I spent my best summer for a long time! I made new friends, had the best colleagues ever and saw different sides of England. Fortunately I got the chance to made this unforgettable experience! I experienced the amazing balloon fiesta and the harbour festival with my new friends. What a fantastic fireworks! I learnt a lot about the language and the English culture. It was a pleasure for me to talk with people from other continents. Through my work at reception I got the chance to improve my English and did office work coincident. I absolutely recommend an internship abroad and the best address is EC Bristol! Jools, Stella, Ilaria, Carolin, Tony, Sara, Ana, Sarah, Claire and Dan thank you for this amazing time in Bristol!!
