Top tips
« Consiglio vivamente a tutti di partecipare al brunch organizzato dalla scuola la prima domenica di arrivo, prima della prima lezione,, e il modo migliore per conoscere molti dei probabili studenti nella propria classe... e le varia uscite nei pub proposti dalla scuola, sono un ottimo momento di aggregazione »

Die Materialien der Lehrer waren sehr gut und interessant. Man lernt sehr viel Allgemeines aber im Intensivkurs spezifisches. Die Nationalitäten waren recht stark gemischt.

Testimonials

Philippe Pugin
EC, Brighton
Duration: 13 weeks

I chose England and Brighton because I had heard a lot about the nightlife and it is without any doubt one of the best cities. The EC school was recommended to me by ESL and some friends. The classes and the teachers are good. My host family was fantastic! I met several people and I liked the time I spent here. It had been a long time since I had gone to school, but it is one of the best human experiences of my life!

EC, Brighton
Duration: 12 weeks

I chose Brighton because I was told it was a party town. And I could verify it. Brighton is a relatively young and very active town since most of its inhabitants are students. You will therefore find something to do at any time of the day!

As regards the school, EC is just amazing, the teachers are well-trained and really attentive to your needs.

I was staying in a residence. If you are quite independent and sociable, choose this option, you will not be disappointed!

So for me, Brighton is the perfect city for an English course, because it is located by the sea, some 50 minutes away from London and, of course, it is a great town for partying!

EC, Brighton
Duration: 3 months

The three months I spent in Brighton were unforgettable, I spent great moments in this beautiful city. Brighton is a very nice city by the sea and very close to London, which is a plus. The nightlife is very lively all week long, there are great clubs and pubs. EC is a very good school, the teachers are fantastic and so is the staff. I don’t regret my choice of accommodation, living in a residence with people from other countries and cultures is a great experience. I met great people whom I will never forget and hope to see again soon!

Host family
Living with a host family is an attractive option on many levels: it's the ideal setting for practicing the language and immersing yourself in English culture, and you know exactly how much you'll spend on meals for the duration of your stay. You’ll be able to choose between a single or twin room (for students travelling together), and between 3 meal options: half-board, breakfast only and self-catering. The families live around 30-45 minutes away by bus from the school.

Note: It is compulsory for students under 18 to book homestay accommodation, airport transfers (if arriving or leaving between 20:00 and 8:00), and provide a parental consent form.
