Gute Schule mit kompetenten Lehrpersonal. Die Klasse war von den Nationalitäten und den Altersgruppen her gut gemischt. Einzig die Einrichtungen in der Schule haben ihre beste Zeit längst hintersich. Die Gastfamilie war top. Wahnsinnig nette Leute, sehr gutes Essen und alles war sehr sauber und gepflegt. Wir unternahmen sehr viel gemeinsam und wir werden sicherlich weiter in Kontakt bleiben.

BSC, York
Duration: 8 weeks

York is a beautiful city, charming and buzzing. It’s big enough to find anything you need, but still human-size. The old town is well preserved, there are some important museums and you can participate to many cultural activities. The countryside around the city is stunning! There are different parks and historic sites, and the sea is not far. Thanks to good rail connections, you can easily reach London, Edinburgh or Liverpool. The BSC York school is in a good location, right in the city centre, and the environment is very nice. Students have access to competent and effective classes. This destination is ideal if you want to discover the English language and culture.

A small but welcoming town, York is the perfect place to improve your English. My language course with ESL at the English Language Centre was a rich and unforgettable experience. During my stay there, I could improve my English and in the meantime have a lot of fun. I met fantastic people from different countries with whom I spent fantastic moments. The school is well organized. It offers activities for every day and excursions for every weekend. The teachers teach with passion and love and they are always available if you have any problems. They can also help you if you are looking for a new accommodation or a job... I found a job with their aid and I am still working.

I stayed with an adorable host family for more than 6 months. I felt very comfortable with them. They were always kind and available for me and I have been keeping in touch with them since I left. They were really like my real family! I visited many places like London, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Whitby... The nightlife in York is fantastic. York is rich of shops, cafes, night clubs, restaurants. I used go out every weekend but I didn't mind about the place where i was. I had excellent friends and I had great time everywhere!

I was in York when there was the Royal Wedding and I can't describe how was the atmosphere there. York was totally blue white and red and people were very happy. I love people there, they are always kind and polite. I really enjoyed my time there and made a lot of good friends from all over the world, so you will not regret it! I really recommend it to you! It was the best period of my life!

Duration: 8 weeks

I have never really been interested in nor attracted to the English language. I thought it would never be useful to me. During a job interview, I was asked if I could speak English because they were looking to hire teachers for this language. I contacted ESL and I was advised to take a language course in England, more specifically in the little town of York, in the north of this wonderful country. I was told that there was a very famous school there. Without thinking too much about it, I immediately considered this option as the right solution.

I have been living in York for more than 2 months. I would never have thought that it would be so pleasant and easy to travel to England and learn English there.

A vibrant but small university city, York is an ideal base to explore the magnificent countryside and the attractions of the surrounding region of Yorkshire. Discover its traditional villages, churches, castles and the coastal heritage of this region. Two hours by train from London, you might be tempted to make a tour in the capital - why not? And the beaches of Scarborough and Whitby aren't far! Throughout the year, festivals celebrate the impressive cultural heritage of York, an endearing city.
Our partner school proposes a programme of varied activities with excursions in the north of England and in the magnificent Yorkshire region. It organises a range of after-class clubs where you can practise your skills, as well as meals out, ghost walks, museum and gallery visits, and outings to the cinema or to the theatre.
