I chose this destination because I wanted to visit Manchester and Liverpool, and to improve my English and to live in an English family. We learnt a lot of different information: vocabulary in topics 'Films', 'Music', 'Art'... and practised Grammar, writing, reading, listening and of course a lot of speaking. John (our teacher) was fabulous! He could make everybody involved in a class activity. He made our lessons interesting and unforgettable! I would recommend EC to all my friends and mates! This school is worth visiting! The weather was fantastic! Activities were incredible! Everything was very good, especially the staff (Melanie, Pablo, Michael and John). We loved this school!...
