My EC Manchester Experience – Spanish Student Noelia

My name is Noelia I am 19 years old and I am from Spain. When by November 2016 I decided I wanted to live my experience in Manchester, my agency recommended me to study in EC. I had high expectations and from the very first moment they lived up to the hype. The duration of my course was only 4 weeks, not too long but once you get to EC they make you feel like you are part of that great family. The welcome of the students and the staff is incredible and I was very shocked that being in a foreign country surrounded by people from all over the world they were making me feel like I was at home, or even better. The classes in EC are very dynamic, they are not the typical ones in which you spend hours without looking up from the book but the teachers give you the opportunity to express yourself and to improve your English a lot. Everybody in the class is always involved in the conversations and the teachers make sure of that. Also, the rest of the staff are very caring and they constantly ask you if everything is going in the best way possible. Thanks to EC Manchester I have lived one of the best experiences of my life and I have met extraordinary people, so I strongly recommend everyone to choose this school. I am very happy with the choice I made, it was the best decision ever. If you want to have an experience like Noelia, why don’t you sign up for IELTS Courses in Manchester  

Roberto graduation

Roberto’s experience at EC Manchester English Centre

Roberto came from Italy and he spent four months studying at General English Course at EC Manchester. He has decided to share his EC experience.   I think that the great word to describe this is “Amazing”. EC Manchester is a big family where you can find directors, teachers and students. When I arrived in Manchester I was alone because I didn’t know nobody and I didn’t know the city and the language. So, the first day was ugly but after I started to love that life. In general I don’t like to study and to go to the school, but in those 4 months that I spent in Manchester I loved to go every day to school. Every day I had a different activity to do like football, Netflix’s day, welcome drink etc. It was a perfect experience because I met people from different countries and cultures. You could open your mind and you can learn to know people come from of opposing continents and to share the values in common. I shared a lot of things with Korean, Brazil, Colombian, Chile, Arabic’s friends. I spent 4 months in UK and in my opinion I improved my English through the teachings of professors and to speak every time with my friends. You must speak all time in English. It was the secret. In the end, EC Manchester is a fantastic school (new and clean) where you can learn the language through the preparation of good teachers. If you want to do a fantastic experience in UK, you must choose EC Manchester  !!! We thank Roberto for his testimonial and we hope you enjoyed your EC experience. would you like to have an experience similar to Roberto’s experience, then what you waiting for.. Come & Join us

English Teacher talks about EC Manchester Language School

Today Sean, an English teacher at EC Manchester, decided to answer some question offers his experience in this amazing school.   Can you introduce yourself in a few lines ? My name is Sean Fee and I’m teacher at EC Manchester. In my spare time I’m also trying to be a writer. I have a MA in Screenwriting and have been writing short plays and radio comedies for a few years now (… with varying degrees of success).       2. Why have you decided to join EC Manchester Language School ? I joined EC Manchester because I was looking for something different. I’d been working in primary schools around Manchester for a year or so but wanted to focus on a different kind of teaching where the students didn’t bury the school’s best toys/books in a sand pit. After completing my CELTA course a lot of my fellow students decided to travel overseas but I wanted to stay somewhere local so I could pursue my writing in my spare time. EC was a great fit for me as it’s a relatively young company that isn’t afraid to hire new teachers who can develop and grow with the company.   3. After spending few months what do you think about EC Manchester Language School ? After being here a few months I have to say it’s the best company I’ve ever worked for. The staff is like one big family and it’s clear everyone here is passionate about what they do and care about their students.   4. What is your point of view as a teacher on EC Manchester Language School ? EC isn’t the biggest language school in Manchester but you’d be hard pressed to find a better one. I enjoy the variety of different subjects and levels I … Read more

EC Scavenger Hunt

Friday 12th May we have organized an “EC Scavenger Hunt” in Manchester. At the beginning 25 students decided to participate in our “EC Scavenger Hunt” but the weather discouraged some students. At the final 8 students participated in our Scavenger organized by our school. During this activity, students in groups of two were asked to walk through the streets of Manchester looking for clues to solve the various questions posed to them and to take pictures with their partners and an EC Manchester Language School poster as proof they were at the requested location. To our surprise, the students were really in the competition and sometimes they could be seen running through the streets of Manchester to get back to school as soon as possible and win the big prize for this photo hunt. When all the students returned to make the correction of their answers and then recover their price, we were surprised. Indeed the students were much more astute than one thinks.     Picture with a plane, but not a real plane!!!   In the photo above the students were supposed to go to the science and industry museum to take a picture of a plane, however to save time they practically all had the idea of making it into a toy store to take a picture with a miniature plane.    Participants in EC Scavenger Hunt   Winning team Thus, even if the weather was not there, this EC Scavenger Hunt was a real success and the students were totally conquered by this activity proposed by EC Manchester Languages School. At the same time we would like to congratulate Diana and Radi for winning the grand prize . We would like to thank the students for participating in this event and we promise to reorganize a new EC … Read more

An amazing ec experience at ec manchester

Tokyo to Manchester

Hello I’m Ken.   I have been in EC Manchester Language School for 10 months. I learnt a lot of things which I feel are very important in my life, for example, English culture and how they live. If I hadn’t decided to study in Manchester, I wouldn’t have made so many friends. When I was in Japan, I couldn’t imagine that I can make so many friends in Manchester, of course its not easy to come here because there were a lot of brick walls to live in a different country, but when I managed to climb that wall I was able to grow and I’m glad I came her. Thank you EC Manchester for an amazing experience!

The final results of the competition

Pumpkin Carving at EC Manchester Language School

EC Manchester language school getting ready for Halloween was an amazing experience for our students, as we got some pumpkins and started a competition. We brought the creative and competitive side out of our students and put their brains to a test.     Some staff joined in and got messy with the pumpkins and were trying to beat our creative students in the competition.                 getting messy and being funny was the best part of the experience, as some students made a day out of it and some were even eager to give the pumpkins a taste.                 We had a crazy fun time at EC Manchester language school and the end results were a piece of art.                 its not all studying at EC Manchester language school, we offer different activities throughout the month, which will make your #ecexperinece something that you will never forget.

Get to know one of our Classes – English in the City

EC Manchester has recently opened a new course named ‘English in the City’, a programme designed to promote the learning of English through studying different aspects of the city where students are living. The course has given students the opportunity to learn about many aspects of Manchester including looking at the famous industrial past of the city, researching the important music and sports scenes and much more. The twelve week course has so far been very successful. One student has commented, ‘I think this class is very useful for me because I have recently arrived in Manchester. To get out in the city and speak English with Manchester people is good to help us improve.’ The course teacher also said, ‘It’s great for students to realise there is more to studying abroad than just the area they live and the school and definitely a bonus for me to show Manchester as a great city to live.’ The positive feedback has made the course popular in the school as it enters its second term and continues to be a hit with new students who want to know more about the city where they have chosen to improve their English.   Find out more about English courses in Manchester
