We know you come to EC for the English, and teaching you English is our number 1 priority. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to learn a couple of other things while you’re here. And what’s more is that no one ever said that learning something new had to be a dull experience.

They used nothing but tape and drinking straws, and they communicated their ideas and coordinated their efforts exclusively in English.
Everything you encounter while studying abroad can be used as an opportunity for growth, education and experience.
