TESTIMONIALS

Marco Odone

Hello! My name is Marco Odone and I went to Miami, Florida, with ESL for a 7-week language stay. My goal was to improve my English level, making the most of all the activities offered by this destination. I lived with a host family in Miami Beach and the school was a 15 minutes’ walk from the house. The family was very nice and the school as well. Courses were adapted to each person’s level. The atmosphere was great and the different activities proposed by the school were interesting and varied. I really enjoyed my 7 weeks in Miami because the city never rests and the weather is always good.

My stay in Denver was really exceptional! My host family was really like a second family to me, always ready to listen to me and open to the activities I suggested. Their house was very nice, I had a very decent room. As I stayed in Colorado, I attended the Bridge-Linguatec school located in Denver, an excellent school to make progress in English, my level actually improved a lot during the six months I stayed there. One of the best things that I experienced is without a doubt the amount of friends you meet, it s a real life experience, I only want to go back. The city of Denver is absolutely beautiful, not too big, you can enjoy the activities that a city has to offer with the proximity of the rocky mountains on top. I strongly recommend it to all those who want to get away from the big metropolis. Long live America! ☺

I stayed at the EC school in Cambridge, which is a really good school. Located in a brand new building, the classrooms are all equipped with multimedia boards and a presenter. The lessons are playful and interesting, they will definitely allow you to make progress in English. Moreover, the welcoming staff as well as the teachers are really nice and will do everything to help you if you are facing any kind of problem. Which is really good. I was won over by this work method, which allows you to participate with all the students and even the teachers. There is a very good atmosphere in the classroom, which allows you to connect with the other students. This method allows you to make progress in the way you express yourself in English, in your understanding but also in your writing. I personally think I made progress in all these areas.

I am also very satisfied with the organization of ESL and with the staff who knows how to listen to you and does whatever is necessary to answer all your questions.

I personally loved my stay.

I only have one thing to say, thanks for this beautiful experience!
