First day with EC Manchester: Manchester Orientation Tour!

Even if classes start on Monday, the bravest future new students can join us on Sunday at 11:00 am for a brunch in Manchester. It is a friendlier way to meet us for them, and a good way to enjoy a wonderful brunch in our favorite restaurant “The Alchemist”. After everyone ordered their brunch, we all start to speak about where all are from, what do they study, etc.

After roughly one hour, once bellies full, we start our Manchester Orientation Tour! And we are very lucky: the sun was here on the day, for a perfect walk! We started by showing them all interesting places around Piccadilly Garden such as the post office, the bus stop… but it is just the useful spot, the most interesting come after. For our football fans, we pass through the National Football museum and its famous football players pavement.

A sunny day for our Manchester Orientation Tour! Welcome to our new students!

The next step is the oldest public library of all Manchester, the museum Chethams Library. Maybe you already know it but all museums in Manchester are free to visit!  The next stop is the pubs Sinclair’s Oyster & Old Wellington, where we took the time for a picture together.Then we kept walking in Manchester, passing through John Ryland Library, Lincoln Square… Finally, we arrived in front of the Town Hall, where there is a festival those days!

And we ended our tour by passing in Chinatown, the biggest in the whole UK where you can find a lot of Asian restaurant, karaoke also, etc. There are now ready for a full immersion English courses in Manchester! Tomorrow we going to see them for the beginning of their EC Experience!
