Ich war nun für drei Monate in England, Cambridge. Ich war dort in der EC - Language School, welche ich nur weiterempfehlen kann. Die Schule war nicht sehr gross so kannte man nach ein paar Wochen jeden und fühlte sich sehr gut aufgehoben. Die Tür der Mitarbeiter stand jederzeit offen bei Fragen und sie helfen wo sie nur können, dass Du Dich wohl fühlst. Die Lehrer waren sehr aufgeschlossen, offen und herzlich, da ich sehr schüchtern bin hat das mir das Englisch sprechen um vieles leichter gemacht. Mir war auch sehr wichtig dass ich meine Verbesserung im Englisch "sehe", so konnte wann immer ich wollte mich für einen Sprachtest anmelden, da wurden meine Kenntnisse getestet und ich habe gesehen was ich noch verbessern muss. Das war meine erste Sprachschule, so kann ich leider nicht sagen, ob sie zu teuer oder zu günstig war!Ein guter Tipp von mir, bucht rechtzeitig und vor allem früh. Ein Gastfamilie kann ich persönlich nicht weiterempfehlen! Ich dachte zu erst ich könnte mein Englisch dadurch mehr verbessern, aber ich habe sie nur am Abend gesehen zum Abendessen. Wenn Du selbstständig bist und gerne weggehst, ist sicherlich eine Studentenresidenz cooler. Zwar ist es dort meistens ein bisschen dreckiger, aber du bist mehr mit Leuten aus der Schule unterwegs und zusammen.Zweiter Tipp von mir, buche rechtzeitig dass du ein Einzelzimmer-en suite bekommst. Die Aktivitäten von der Schule sind sehr interessant und soll eine Möglichkeit sein, dass du England/Wales/Schottland kennenlernst.Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist auch sehr gut.

Testimonials

Nolwen Guilbaud
Nolwen Guilbaud

I stayed at the EC school in Cambridge, which is a really good school. Located in a brand new building, the classrooms are all equipped with multimedia boards and a presenter. The lessons are playful and interesting, they will definitely allow you to make progress in English. Moreover, the welcoming staff as well as the teachers are really nice and will do everything to help you if you are facing any kind of problem. Which is really good. I was won over by this work method, which allows you to participate with all the students and even the teachers. There is a very good atmosphere in the classroom, which allows you to connect with the other students. This method allows you to make progress in the way you express yourself in English, in your understanding but also in your writing. I personally think I made progress in all these areas.

I am also very satisfied with the organization of ESL and with the staff who knows how to listen to you and does whatever is necessary to answer all your questions.

I personally loved my stay.

I only have one thing to say, thanks for this beautiful experience!

EC, Cambridge
Duration: 8 weeks

Punting, King’s College, Great St Mary’s – this is Cambridge. The central library in the shopping centre, the pub The Eagle, the place where DNA was discovered and many English schools – this is Cambridge too.

The renowned English university town, located 80 km to the north east of London and of the same size as Bern, is not famous for its parties, but rather for its teaching tradition. The EC school where I studied English is located in the town centre, right next to the venerable marketplace and the recently inaugurated Grand Arcade commercial centre. If you don’t want to give up parties, even though your course schedule is quite busy, you are welcome to visit the town’s numerous pubs, nightclubs and student houses. Despite the peaceful atmosphere of the place, you can have fun everywhere – because where there are students, there are parties!

EC, Cambridge
Duration: 8 weeks

Spending 8 weeks in Cambridge is an incredible and unforgettable experience. The location of the EC school was just perfect. Right in the centre of the town, next to the shopping centre and to Market Square. At lunchtime, I would visit the market and taste some local specialties together with my friends from all over the world.

The teachers were extremely friendly and spent a lot of time with the students, even after classes. For instance, they often took part in the weekly football match in the park or went for a drink with the students.

The various leisure activities too leave no room for boredom: punting on the river Cam, visit of the colleges or of St Mary’s Tower, weekly outings to see musicals, or else weekend excursions to other English and Scottish cities! And of course, you will also enjoy the town of Cambridge, which is simply beautiful, with its narrow streets, its colleges and its numerous parks.

The EC school is a big family, which makes for a wonderful experience!
