TESTIMONIALS

Andrea Quattrone

I decided to go on a language trip to Newcastle upon Tyne with ESL and now I can say that it was one of the best choices I have ever made. I learned about ESL online; at first, I was very impressed by their website’s precision, and then, by the staff’s availability and professionalism. They were all extremely helpful and precise in clarifying all my doubts!

In the beginning, I went on this trip just to improve my English knowledge and skills, but it soon became one of the best ways to strengthen incredible relationships. I am still very close to some of the people I met during my stay and I really would like to develop these friendships in the future and take them as good excuses to travel more.

Anyone can say that England is a truly unique country, but going there is the only way to deeply understand this statement. The habits, the breakfast, the buildings… there are so many things to discover. And British people are so enthusiastic that they make you feel warm even in a place that isn’t!

The weekend excursions were my favourite thing! Edinburgh, the Lake District, Alnwick Castle (Harry Potter’s one!)… The moments I spent in these places were truly unforgettable!

My experience at EC Malta was fantastic. I chose a mini-group Business English course, as I only had one week and I wanted to focus and improve as much as possible. This was definitely the right choice and I will do it again. Teachers were amazing, very caring and dynamic; they would advise and correct us all the time. Also, during breaks, they would bring coffee and pastries! The school staff was lovely and always helpful. There were plenty of afternoon and evening activities! Don’t miss the welcome dinner, as it’s a great opportunity to meet the other students, nor the excursion to Mdina, the “Silent City”. Although Malta is small, there are many things to do and places to visit. I highly recommend it!

Learning French at the Institut Européen de Français was a great experience. I refreshed my French and got ready for my third Erasmus term. Classes are interactive and practical. Life in Montpellier is quiet, but – as it’s a student town – there is always something to do.
