The teachers are very patient, you can ask what you want if you have any problems. The organisation of EC Cambridge is very good.

Ancient, picturesque and famous for educational excellence, Cambridge is a truly impressive city.

Easy to walk around and with beautiful buildings and parks, this prestigious academic destination also offers a true taste of traditional England, as relaxing as it is cultural.

You have to try punting on the River Cam.

Staying with a local family is both exciting and rewarding. Host families provide the best insight into how British families live their day-to-day lives. This interaction with a family will help you communicate better, faster and allow you to pick up words and nuances used in daily situations. There is no typical homestay in Cambridge. Some homes are single standing homes; others can be apartments or townhouses. Cambridge is a very multi-cultural city and a lot of people are originally from different countries, so families may have different backgrounds. Living with a family in Cambridge will give you a great view of all the different cultures and ethnicities that Cambridge has to offer.

Choose between a single or twin room. Each room is furnished with a bed and a closet to store your personal belongings and clothes. If there is not a desk in your room, the host family will provide you with a quiet place to study. It is important that rooms and living areas are kept neat and tidy. You will also have access to a shared bathroom. Private bathrooms are also an option, upon request and availability.

Bed linen and towels are provided by the host family. The host family will be happy to launder the sheets and towels once a week. You are responsible for doing your own personal laundry. You will be allowed to have one free wash per week. It is very common for families to have a designated laundry day. Internet access is available upon request (and if requested, will be free of charge). Telephone access is dependent on the host family.

excellent

This experience was amazing for me. I met a lot of people from everywhere, and the most important thing for me, I improved my English. Teachers in EC Cambridge are very good especially Simon and Henri. If I can come back I will come back. The teachers are very patient, you can ask what you want if you have any problems. The organisation of EC Cambridge is very good.
