Margherita from Italy talks about her second stay at EC Cambridge

Margherita has finished her second stay at EC Cambridge. Here is what she has to say about her English Classes in Cambridge. I’ve only been here one week but I came to EC Cambridge for two weeks last year as well. I’d recommend the Cambridge school because it’s an International school and you have the opportunity to meet  lot’s of people from different countries. For Italian people this is a very good school because there are not man Italians. Cambridge is a very nice town for students. It’s International and as a student you have a lot of activities to do. It’s also not so big, so you can easily move around it. I’m in a residence, Kite House. I’d like to come back to Cambridge if I’m able to. I am glad I have had two amazing experiences in this school.

Alejandro from Colombia shares his EC experience

Alejandro from Colombia studied the CAE Exam Class at EC Cambridge. Here he tells us a little more about his experience. I was in EC Cambridge for six months and without a doubt this was the best experience of my whole life. Cambridge is the best city to learn English as their accent is the most plain and Cambridge is a perfect adapted student city; with plenty of activities to do in your spare time. There are a lot of pubs and a couple of really good nightclubs. I never got bored in Cambridge. About my course, I can only say that in my life there are some teachers I will never forget and I met two at EC. I had the opportunity to stay in two types of accommodation, host family and student residence. Both were great and if you have the chance, try them both! Certainly I will come back to EC Cambridge to say hello to the people who were my family for six months,
