« Durante il mio soggiorno, relativamente breve (7 settimane), ho fatto molti progressi tanti da riuscire ad arrivare al corso avanzato, partendo da un intermedio.Questo grazie ai professori che sono disponibili e dinamici, alla qualità della scuola che porta gli studenti a comunicare e grazie alle differenti culture »

Die Schule ist sehr zentral und gut mit dem öffentlichen Verkehr zu erreichen. Die Location und Equipment in der Schule sind gut. Der Staff ist sehr hilfsbereit und die Lehrer haben einen sehr guten Level. Es sind junge Lehrer die auf die Schüler in jedem Alter eingehen. Die Schüler haben vom alter her einen guten Mix (18-60 Jahre). Der Mix der Schüler ist ein wenig geprägt von den Saudi Arabischen (1/3) Ländern. Der Rest ist sehr international. Ich kann die Schule weiter empfehlen. Wichtig ist, dass man immer das Gespräch mit dem Lehrer oder der Schulleitung sucht wenn man zusätzliche Stunden will. Die Schule ist sehr flexibel und hat diverse Möglichkeiten. Auch Privatstunden können gebucht werden. Die Lehrer haben eine gute Lern Struktur, so dass man in der Klasse sehr viel profitieren kann. Es ist sehr viel auf Konversation in kleinen Gruppen (2er/3er) ausgelegt. Immer mit dem Fokus auf die richtige Grammatik Das Student Resort ist sehr gemütlich und kann ich nur empfehlen.

« Ich habe fortschritte gemacht und kann die Schule nur weiter empfehlen. Für mich persönlich war der Mix mit Klassen- und Privat Unterricht sehr hilfreich für die Fortschritte. Ich konnte mich doch innerhalb von 6 Wochen in der Grammatik und Konversation verbessern. »

EC Manchester es una escuela de 10, tanto el personal trabajando como los alumnos son increíbles y muy acogedores desde el primer día. Tuve la suerte de tener dos muy buenas profesoras que interactuaban mucho con la clase y hacían que estas se hiciesen muy amenas y divertidas. Recomiendo 100% Vita Student ya que gracias al haberme alojado allí pude conocer a muchísimos más estudiantes tanto de otras escuelas como universitarios y pude practicar mucho más el idioma porque pasábamos gran parte de la semana en las zonas comunes. Ha sido una gran experiencia poder convivir durante un mes con personas cuyo objetivo era el mismo que el mío!!

« Mi objetivo antes de iniciar el curso era mejorar mi fluidez hablando inglés y gracias al dinamismo de las clases y el haberme alojado en una residencia de estudiantes he podido lograr dicho objetivo »
School highlights
« Lo mejor que me llevo de la escuela, además de lo académico, es el increíble equipo que trabaja en ella. Desde el primer día te hacen sentirte como en casa, son muy cercanos y se interesan constantemente en si el curso está avanzando positivamente para el estudiante. Es una muy buena escuela y sin duda volvería a repetir en el mismo sitio!! »

Il mio soggiorno linguistico é stato molto utile perché ho potuto migliorare la lingua avendo la possibilità di parlare con studenti di differenti nazioni. La scuola EC di Manchester é ben organizzata, offre molte attività nel tempo libero e ho trovato le lezioni molto valide. Le lezioni sono state molto utili e fruttuose. Gli insegnanti sono molto disponibili per eventuali chiarimenti e aiuti. Anche l'ambiente é molto curato e ben tenuto. Aver avuto la possibilità di incontrare studenti didifferenti nazionalità mi ha permesso di migliorare il mio inglese e fare nuove amicizie. Gli insegnanti sempre disponibili in caso di aiuto. Attività ben organizzate, molto divertimento e possibilità di stare con i compagni di classe in un contesto differente da quello scolastico.

« Le molte attività di speaking proposte dagli insegnanti e sicuramente con la lezione intensiva svolta al pomeriggio dalle 13:00 alle 14:30 ho potuto apprendere nuovi vocaboli e modi di dire tipici del Paese. »

Manchester is a friendly and open-minded city, where it’s easy to chat with the locals. Be sure to visit the Museum of Sciences and Industry, then stop in one of the many traditional pubs in the centre. Visit the “curry mile” to taste spicy Indian dishes, considered by many to be the finest in England! Sample Manchester’s unique nightlife in the Northern Quarter, Canal St, Deansgate, Oxford Road and the Printworks, and you’ll see that Mancunians have fully earned their reputation as partiers! Shopping addicts will love the boutiques in the town centre and their enticing prices. If you wish to see more of the country, set off to explore the surroundings: the Lake District, the Peak District, the port of Liverpool, North Wales and Chester.
