J'ai vraiment adoré Bristol qui s'est révélée être une ville très cosmopolite, attrayante et accueillante. L'EC Bristol est un lieu où la bonne humeur est le maître mot. Les professeurs y exercent leur profession avec passion et patience. Propositions de belles découvertes à des prix abordables.

Alles war super! Die Ausflüge waren manchmal etwas stark überteuert, im Vergleich zu den Preisen, die man zahlt, wenn man die Ausflüge selber organisiert. Zum Preis-Leistungsverhältnis der Schule kann ich ansonsten nicht viel sagen, da man bei der Schule abgesehen von einem Trinkbecher nichts kaufen konnte. Die Lehrer, die ich gehabt habe, waren wirklich sehr motivierend und haben den Unterricht sehr gut gestaltet. Die Gastfamilie war sehr herzlich und freundlich. Sie hat ein schönes Haus, der Zustand war wirklich sehr gut und es war super. Sue ist immer auf die individuellen Essenswünsche eingegangen und hat die Gerichte schön angerichtet. Man fühlte sich allgemein, wie man in einem Hotel wäre, da sie sich jederzeit um einen gekümmert hat. Die Ausflüge waren etwas teuer. Die Ideen waren zwar gut, jedoch waren bei einem Ausflug zu wenig Teilnehmer eingeschrieben, weshalb der Ausflug abgesagt werden musste. Da kann die Schule nichts dafür, aber es ist trotzdem schade für diejenigen, die gerne teilgenommen hätten.

« Ja, das habe ich definitiv! Als ich gekommen war, war mein Wortschatz viel kleiner. Nach drei Wochen habe ich allerdings schon einen grossen Fortschritt gemacht!

Scuola molto ben organizzata, ottima accoglienza, ottimi insegnanti. Livello insegnanti molto buono, sanno come mettere gli studenti a proprio agio, gentilezza e sense of humor. Purtroppo a mio parere la competenza "scrittura" è in generale troppo poco esercitata..e a volte il ritmo di lavoro un po lento (potrebbe essere piu efficiente). Alloggio moderno, ottima ubicazione, personale gentile. Purtroppo in generale il livello di igene in Inghilterra non è buono come in altri paesi europei (Svizzera, Germania, Italia, ecc). Attività variate e interessanti! Personale molto disponibile e simpatico.

EC, Bristol
Duration: 4 weeks

ESL staff carefully assisted me in the choice of a language school in England and was also available to help during my stay. Since the beginning, I really wanted to improve my Business English skills; this is why ESL recommended ESL Bristol. I followed the recommendation and I spent 4 fabulous weeks in that beautiful city. Thanks to interactive teaching methods, modern facilities and excellent teachers, my English skills improved a lot and very quickly. The best thing was that I met so many students from all over the world! I was very happy with my accommodation; I stayed with a lovely and welcoming host family. They made me feel part of the family for 4 weeks. My language stay in Bristol was very interesting because EC teams organized plenty of excursions; I visited Bristol, Oxford, Cardiff and Bath. No time to get bored! Bristol is a fantastic city with a very British charm, amazing pubs, a buzzing nightlife and warm inhabitants. A language stay in Bristol was the perfect choice for me; not only I improved my English skills, but I also made new friends and went home with beautiful memories.

Initially, I was going to stay until early December, but since the experience has been so good, I decided to extend it until the Christmas holidays. I’m really happy with the school and with the attained results. This is the first time that I study English abroad and to be honest I’m very happy, because my English level has improved a lot. What has helped me the most is being with people from different countries. In Bristol there are Spanish, but I avoid interacting with them, as I have pretty clear objectives. Spending a lot of time with students from other countries has helped me to improve my English level, especially spending time with students of upper levels than mine. I’m very happy with the activities offered by the school, as the students don’t have time to get bored. Another key factor is the accommodation. I’m living at the Favell House residence, which is located in the center and two minutes' walk from the school.

My language stay in Bristol was one of the best experiences in my life. I took a course at EC and I improved my English a lot, thanks to friendly and experienced teachers. I met many people coming from different countries and all of them were really nice. I stayed in a host family; my hosts were very nice and caring, and they made me feel at home. This trip was very enriching, on both a personal and educational level. I would like to thank ESL for their help and efficiency when I had problems or doubts. I recommend them with no hesitation. My trip to Bristol will stay in my memory forever. I’ll always have Bristol!

In this university town, you will enjoy an authentic British experience alongside other international students. You can start by exploring Bristol’s historic centre and its bustling Harbourside, which overflows with museums, exhibitions, clubs and coffee shops and hosts the famous Bristol Harbour festival each year. Then cross the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the symbol of Bristol, to get a wonderful view over Avon Gorge, and visit the Bristol Zoo to discover all kinds of species. On the edge of Bristol, the impressive mansion of Ashton Court Estate is also worth visiting if you are keen on history, and it's also the site of the breathtaking annual Bristol Balloon fiesta. And if you need a change of scenery, just organise a little trip amongst friends to Bath to take advantage of its thermal baths, to Stonehenge, to admire megalithic monuments, or to Cardiff in Wales!
