Christina “I will come back as soon as possible”

Christina, 20 from Switzerland, writes about her EC experience. Read what she has to say about her time at EC Oxford English Language Centre !

It is hard to describe all the feelings which I had in these months. I was here to improve my English and to learn more about Oxford. After all the time here I know it was one of my best decisions to choose EC Oxford. I never thought that I’ll miss the time here so much.


First I didn’t expect that. Before I went to Oxford and to the EC School I was really sad on my last day in Switzerland. I thought 3 months was too long and I will miss everything, but I had no time to miss anything.  After two days in the School I found a lot of new friends. Friends from all over the world and they were like a family for me. I spent a lot of time with the people from the school. We went to the cinema, to pubs, we visited Stonehenge, London, Bath, had picnics in the park and a lot of things more.

Anyway the time at the school was perfect too. I had great teachers and every lesson was different. In the morning classes I learnt a lot of vocabulary, grammar and how I can speak with English people. The “English in the City” class in the afternoon was one of my favourite lessons. We had a lot of tours around Oxford and I learned a lot about the City. We also made a movie with the class and it was really fun.

My 3 months are already over and I can’t believe how fast the time runs. I will miss everything: my great time in the School and in Oxford, the lovely staff, the helpful teachers and my new friends.

I will come back as soon as possible. Thank you EC Oxford for the great time and see you soon.
