Alex from France shares his experience of EC Cambridge

Alex has been studying at EC Cambridge since September last year on an Academic Year English Programme. Currently he is studying for the FCE Cambridge English Exam.

I have been almost seven months in EC Cambridge and it has been an amazing experience. Firstly, my English level has improved from low intermediate to advanced; moreover, the school is new and well equipped with smart boards. In the lessons we are at most fourteen students but generally we are around ten which makes the course more personal.

Secondly, EC organises many activities such as bowling, visiting colleges, visiting museums which are free and they propose a travel every week in a different place for an interesting price. These activities are good opportunities to meet other students or future friends by discovering the British culture.
I was in EC accommodation for my first month and found it really comfortable, well equipped and there was a cleaner who came every week. I found after that a shared house for the next six months because it was cheaper, but to be honest I missed the EC accommodation for is comfort.
I would recommend EC Cambridge because the lessons are interesting and useful and the staff are really helpful and always welcoming. I would suggest, for future EC students, to not hesitate to go out often with the school or your friends or even alone, because it is the best way to improve your speaking and also to meet English people!
