EC Montreal Student Focus Group Feedback!

Every week, EC Montreal meets with its departing students to get their feedback on their experience studying at EC.  This feedback is so important to us as it helps us to improve our services and truly listen to what our clients have to say.  This week we met with students from Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland, France and Georgia.

Here is what they had to say bout their EC experience:

Daniela Garcia From Mexico

This has been an amazing experience.  I have learned so much in so little time.  I am especially thankful to my teachers for being so professional and patient with me.  EC is a great opportunity to meet people from other nationalities and learn about their countries and traditions.  I haven’t left yet and I am already looking forward to coming back to take another course!

Milena Dias From Brazil

I chose EC Montreal because the city is bilingual and I could improve my English while I learned a bit more French.  The school is a little disorganized but I enjoyed most of it.  I received my student book a week and a half after I started classes.  Regarding the lessons, they were all great but I wish I had been given more homework.  My accommodation was absolutely amazing.  She really made my days even more happy and I felt really comfortable there.  She always helped me with everything.

Lara From Switzerland

I chose EC Montreal because I have some friends in Toronto, so I can visit them as well.  I learned a little bit of French.  All I wanted was to be able to speak a little bit.  I love Essadia.  She wrote everything down and we could speak in her class too.  Everyone could speak and not like in my class now where only 3 students speak because they are fast.  The room in homestay was big with a double bed.  Dinners were great but not enough food, so I had to buy myself more food.  I really like that the EC school has 2 teachers in every class.  I made a lot of friends from Japan, Mexico, Switzerland, Germany and Brazil.  The EC staff are nice and I will always remember all the places I have visited.

Pauline Bataille From France

I chose EC Montreal because my sister lives here.  During these 3 weeks, I don’t think I have made a lot of progress but I am much more comfortable when I speak.  I am more confident and I am not afraid to speak in English anymore.  I found the teachers really interesting and the classes were very lively and not boring at all.  I was a little bit afraid of that because I finished school 6 years ago.  There were few people in my class so it was very nice.  The teachers could be more present with us.  I would recommend EC to a friend.  The school is nice, the staff are nice and present.  We feel good at this school and I made some nice meetings.

Nino Ashadze From Georgia

I chose EC Montreal because this is the only EC school that offers French.  In general, I chose EC because I was in EC Cambridge in 2011 and loved it.  I already have DELF B1.  I didn’t have any contact with French for 2 years so I forgot a lot.  When I came here, I was put in the class of Elementary even though I have forgotten a lot I remembered most of the grammar.  I would have loved it if you could have taken into consideration my previous certificate of DELF B1 and at least let me learn in the pre-intermediate class.  I feel like I didn’t improve but just remembered things that I had forgotten.  Other than this, I love the school, its activities and my host family.  It would be nice if the school had a study room.
