Thais and Claudio studied with us at EC, an English school in Oxford. Read what they have to say about their EC Experience:
Thais is from Brazil and she studied with EC for around 2 months. Read about her experience at EC:
My exchange experience was amusing and very interesting! An excellent learning opportunity, unique and so much fun. I could learn more about the culture of United Kingdom and the ways of people lives here. I also could learn about the cultures of people all around the world through meeting the others EC students. Now I have better understanding for people of all sorts. This two months in Oxford, studying at EC, makes me feel a truly “citizens of the world”.
It was also a great opportunity to travel around. United Kingdom, especially England, is a place with so many beautiful cities and it was a pleasure and a breathtaking experience that I could travel to some of them.
At EC school I have the opportunity to practice and increase my English as I never had before. I was bombarded in all directions by english after I arrived here and the knowledge that I develop in class with my lovely teachers was amazing.
Being on exchange and learning a new language, for sure gave to me a certainty that I will keep studying and developing what I learned here. I can not feel more grateful about my experience, the things that I learned and the friends that I made, I will never forget. My friends were my family in those two months that I stayed in Oxford and what a beautiful family, right? For sure, I will never miss nothing as I will miss here!!!
Claudio is from Italy and he studied with EC for 3 weeks. Read about his experience at EC:
Before I came to EC Oxford I was only looking for a school where to improve my English. I chose Oxford for the story and the ideas it calls to my mind.
However, since the first day I found in Oxford a lovely place. The Staff was always available to help me, the students ambassadors were friendly and kind. I realized that EC Oxford was not only a school where to study, but it was a place where you may do a real British experience with great people. There I have met friends and teachers who have made that period unique.
I have learnt a lot, not only from the teachers, because everyone there was nice and supportive. My experience could be summed up in a few words,considering thatI did not stay long enough to share more. I met awesome people, had great time and improved my English a lot. I just want to thank everyone for those great three weeks!
