I choose Oxford because last year I went to Canterbury and for this summer I wanted to go in a summer camp with older people. In class, we learned the past perfect, modal verbs, present perfect, present simple, present continuous, history about King Arthur and Buckingham. The excursion in Bath was interesting, Portsmouth was very cool because of the sun and the big tower. The Laser Quest was funny, too. I will remember the really good friends I met from Germany, Italy, and Turkey and Saudi Arabia. People are very friendly with each other! Nobody was shy, all wanted to speak English and meet new friends. I liked the excursions, the school had very interesting games. It’s a good city centre with friendly people and the site was comfortable and clean.

“I didn’t want to go to a big city like London, so Canterbury suited me very well. The benefit of learning English in England is improving my pronunciation! I loved exploring cool cities that I’ve never been to before, like Oxford. My favourite activities were the Karaoke night, because it was funny, and the disco, of course! My new friends came from Germany, Spain, Italy and France and I really hope that I will stay in contact with them when we go back home! I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family as it is well organised and I’ve really enjoyed my time here. My advice to my friends who are thinking about coming here is to not always stay with people from your country, and to have friends who finish on the same day, as it’s so sad when we have to say goodbye before my time is up at Canterbury!”

My trip to NY was really unbelievable! The campus (Queens) was really beautiful, we lived in a TV series! I had extraordinary encounters with students of many different nationalities. The understanding with Amy, the director and staff of the school was awesome! I thank ESL for the two best weeks of my life.
