I have improved my English skills more than I had expected. I chose New York because I had always wanted to live in one of the most inspiring and exciting cities in the world. The city is amazing not only for its famous landmarks, but also for its diversity, architecture, natural beauty and culture. You can find food, places and activities for all different tastes. ​Studying at EC New York couldn't be different. The teachers are amazing and funny, and their classes are very dynamic and stimulating. In these three months, I have improved my English skills more than I had expected. Also, I made some good friends from all over the world, and all the things that I’ve learned from them have been priceless. I recommend EC NY for those who want to learn English in this exciting city that never sleeps!...
