Luiz, from Brazil, shares his experience in EC

Luiz is one of our Brazilian Students, he studied in EC four weeks, and here is what he thinks about his program. “I wanted to study English in Canada, so I chose EC because one friend of mine studied here before and he gave me a good recommendation about the school.  Teachers are very attentive and engaging, actually the classes are very interesting. I will totally recommend the school because EC has many sources to help all the students. Study English in Vancouver has been an awesome experience, it is such a beautiful city! If you come you cannot miss what, in my opinion, is the best place: English Bay and the Public Mountains.”   === Do you want to study English?
