A lot of people from my country recommended EC School and that is why I chose this English school in London.

I like the most the way they teach. Before I came here I was worried that some of the lessons will be boring, but it wasn’t like that at all. In every lesson we played some games. Also they were always happy and made a lot of jokes.

My most unforgettable memory of EC is to meet a lot of people from all over the world. Also to find a lot of new friends. And for sure the free time activities like Zoo bar and shoreditch Food Market form the Social Programme.

For sure I will recommend EC to a friend, because I learned a lot and the teachers and students are very friendly.

EC London is in my eyes a great school! The team is super organized and cool, they are at all times so helpful! I was surprised about how much they really care about you, when you have a problem they directly try to solve it.

Same goes for the teachers … they teach in a very playful way and they want you to take as much home as possible, not just new language skills but also good memories. All in all I can put my thumbs up and give 5 big sparkling stars for EC London! Thanks for the great time I had!

Overall, I'm more than happy with the trip! London is a beautiful and vibrant city, surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The school was next to the metro station, which can be accurately attributed to the advantages of living for those who live in a host family.

The EC school operates at a business center where not only every teacher or employee will treat you with attention and help solve a problem, but this is also a safe place, since it is well guarded.

Of the pros, I can definitely name: the excellent technical equipment of classes and schools in general, comfortable good furniture, everything is clean and there is Wi-FI. No person here speaks Russian, in addition, I was the only Russian speaker in my class. Everyone knows one or two other languages, but this is not a barrier, for me it's the other way around - it's a motivation, because my goal was to practice language knowledge in a natural environment, learn to express my thoughts and speak more freely, which, I think, to me It was possible to achieve. In addition to a total immersion in culture and language, there were a lot of interesting activities at school and outside, which could be visited outside the classroom, which was sent to the mail every Friday.
