Ramadan at EC Fredonia

Ramadan Mubarak to all our friends and their families! Many of our Saudi Arabian friends will be going home to see their families.  For some of our students, it has been many months since they have visited home, and we wish them a joyous time!  Make sure to practice your English while you’re gone (impress everyone with how much you’ve learned)!  Be safe and we look forward to your return–Fredonia will be waiting 😀 On the first full day of Ramadan, Campus Manager, Daniel fasted with the students, then took them all out for dinner. Much food and fun was had by all!     Want to learn about world cultures and Study English in USA?

EC Fredonia Backyard BBQ

Campus Manager Daniel invited everyone to his house for a backyard BBQ!  Everyone enjoyed a traditional American-style cookout with the  addition of delicious Chinese hot pots.  An impromptu game of football in the back yard and live music on the patio made for a perfect summer day.  Daniel and Teacher John played guitar while John’s wife Lily (who just graduated with a Master’s in Music from SUNY Fredonia–congratulations!) and EC student Seon accompanied on the keyboard.  As everything at EC is a group activity, it turned into the most interesting sing-a-long!  The perfect end to a perfect day, was the AMAZING pie Teacher John made (from berries he picked in his backyard).  Lots of food, and lots of laughs on a day spent with friends 🙂 Learn English in USA  

Summer Intern at EC Fredonia

Hello! My name is Chika Horiuchi. I will be the EC Fredonia Operations Intern this summer. I would like to introduce myself a bit. I am from Shiga, Japan. I am a sophomore and Music Industry major at SUNY Fredonia. I like Jazz music and play the saxophone. When I am free, I always go to Starbucks and drink coffee, or hang out with my friends. Fredonia is not a city, but I like Fredonia because people here are so kind and friendly. I came here about 5 month ago, and I was worried about everything. At that time, my friends helped me a lot, so I want to help people like that. I also like the beautiful nature here. Students are always eating, sleeping, or playing something in the grassy spaces on campus, now that summer is here. I like drinking coffee and studying outside. It makes me relaxed. I am going to write EC blogs and Facebook posts. Please check them! Thank you!   Study English in USA with EC Fredonia Check our Facebook page.

Fredonia in Bloom

Warm weather is finally here!  The sun brings new life, as flowers burst into full color.  Do you like nature?  Flowers, rolling green hills, forests and beaches?  Well, that is one of the things we like best about EC Fredonia and Western New York.  Everywhere you look, nature reminds you what beauty really means.  So take a break from studying, while the sun is still high in the sky, and as we say in America, “stop and smell the roses!”  Or azaleas, as the case may be. Come learn English with us in beautiful Fredonia, NY!
