Miami Recommendation

Eat your heart out!  We are lucky to live in this diverse, multi-cultural city.  Miami’s international residents have brought their amazing culture and food from their home countries.  If you only try hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza while you are here you are missing out!  You can’t visit Miami without trying Cuban food (and coffee!).  All within walking distance from the school you can try Argentinian, Peruvian, Brazilian, Columbian and Haitian foods, just to name a few…  Get out and enjoy all the cultures that Miami has to offer!


English Tip

Join an EC Activity!  We offer lots of great activities and excursions where you will have a chance to meet other students and staff.  We also have several student-led clubs, including soccer and salsa which meet at the center.  If you have an idea for a club or an activity you would like to see on next month’s calendar, come see us at the front desk and tell us your suggestion!
