I’m very happy with my time in Manchester. The classes and teachers were a huge help in improving my English. If you have any problem at all, the teachers and staff will help you in any way they can. The school is located in the city centre, and the public transport connections are quick and efficient.

I recommend BSC Manchester if you want to meet people of different nationalities and improve your level of English, of course. What’s more, Manchester is a fantastic city with a wide range of activities and places to visit that make for a special stay, where you’ll get to know new cultures.

I’m also very happy with the Marsa residence. My fellow residents are all really nice and very sociable. You feel right at home!

It was an incredible experience that everyone should have at least once in their life. Manchester is a beautiful city and we also went on an excursion to York. I learnt a lot in the course and the teachers were very nice to all the students. I easily made friends from very different cultures and got to learn about their culture and traditions. It was an unforgettable experience in Manchester that I would repeat without hesitation.

My trip has been a great success: thanks to the quality of the school, my English has improved a lot. In the city, you will find museums, shops, bowling, cinemas and other things like that. But if you like football – which is my case… this place is just perfect! This city is passionate about football and matches are very good. It’s also a good place to party. People’s mentality is very nice; they are all welcoming and helpful. Living with a host family was the perfect way to discover and understand English mentality, as well as my flatmates’ cultures – Panama, Japan and Ukraine. The best thing for me was to change city and environment and discover so many new things.

I still had a few doubts when I left, but they disappeared as soon as I arrived in Middleton, a small and friendly neighbourhood to the north of Manchester. The host family who welcomed me warmly when I arrived turned out to be absolutely awesome upon acquaintance. All of the members of the family helped me to make progress by chatting with me and encouraging me in my studies.

As regards the city, everything is easily reachable on foot or by bus, including shopping venues, museums and football matches, for those who are interested. Apart from a few troubles with buses, which were not always on time, the rest was absolutely great.

The school is easily accessible. The teachers and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Many excursions and activities are offered, including visits to other cities, go-karting, paintball, etc.… for a reasonable price.

In short, I have a great memory from these 3 months in England.

As the first week was drawing to an end and I was getting to know the other students at the school, we sometimes stayed longer to play football on the fields scattered in Manchester, eat out, or go for a walk in the town centre with my classmates.
In my family, the mother was a teacher, which greatly helped me to practise English. I spent hours talking to her, asking her things and in the evening, we watched TV shows or went out to exercise together.
As regards the school, on the first week, my teachers were really excellent. Then, I changed classes and I found some of my new teachers were not as good, but on the thirst week, I was taught by the good teachers again. The English classes were nice, we were encouraged to speak, debate and express our opinions, explain things to others… everything was very useful, even though on the first week, I could feel my brain steaming during classes.

If I was somewhat apprehensive before I left, all my fears vanished once I set foot on the English territory. I couldn’t have dreamt of a better welcome from my host family and my first impression about them was confirmed later on. Very friendly, extremely hospitable, caring and flexible. I felt right at home!
As for the city itself, it is magnificent! As I was exploring it, I was satisfied and convinced that I had made the right choice. The town centre is relatively big but allows easy access to all necessary amenities since everything is at walking distance. Generally speaking, the atmosphere in Manchester is unique with a north area consisting of peaceful residential suburbs and a more industrial south area with a modern design.
Regarding the school, I can only recommend it to anyone wishing to learn or improve their English. As far as I am concerned, I felt I was making progress at a very fast pace. On the one hand thanks to the quality of the teaching, which was varied and allowed for individual attention from the teachers, on the other hand thanks to the easy contact with the other students (younger and older) who came from all over the world. The administration and information provided were also very effective.
To conclude, my stay there was unforgettable and I tried to think of any negative aspects in order to be objective, but I could not find any, because there wasn’t any!

After spending 4 wonderful months in Manchester, I realised that there was more than just rain in England. The city bursts with great activities. I could verify for myself the fact that England, which is known for being the home of football and a place where it is very present, is indeed a great place for football lovers. Manchester is very close to beautiful cities like Chester, Blackpool, Edinburgh or else London, which is 2 hours and a quarter away by train.
The school is well located right in the town centre, close to commercial centres and restaurants. BSC is a good school with excellent teachers. I met plenty of people from different continents there. It was a great, rewarding experience!

At school, everything is fine, I have a pre-intermediate level, I’m happy.
In Manchester, people are friendly, I’m starting to make new friends, at first it wasn’t easy but as time goes by, and thanks to the school’s activities, I was able to meet other students.

The school has a central location and is easily reachable by public transport. I met many people of many different nationalities there. Thanks to the teachers and the lively courses they give, I could make great progress. If you are a football fan like me, you need to go to Manchester! I achieved one of my dreams by attending 2 football matches, it was the best atmosphere in the world!!! Apart from football, there is a lot to do in Manchester, you never get bored. The city is filled with shops, bars, night clubs, restaurants. You can also visit many things. My host family is adorable, I really felt comfortable there. In short, my language course was a great experience with a great quality/price ratio and I intend to do it again next year.

Following my first months spent here, I don't regret my choice. Each day that goes by, Manchester does not cease to surprise me more. The typical and atypical pubs, live concerts, shopping, students on each corner of the street, the "Red Devils" etc... BSC is a school with a great reputation. A great variety of teachers, students from throughout the world, a team who cater for the small needs of students and numerous activities are all the ingredients necessary so that our English is at a top level at the end of our stay. Manchester represents culture and diversity with a nice mix of flavours. This city is therefore the ideal place to improve your skills in the language of Shakespeare.
