I’m Rocío and I travelled to Liverpool this July. At first, I started by looking for information about the different agencies, asking for quotes, reading about the different cities, etc. Then, after a lot of research, I chose ESL – a great choice, for sure! As soon as I can, I will repeat the experience, but I want to stay longer next time, as I was only there for 2 weeks, which passed really quickly.

At the beginning, everything is new: the family, the city… and you wonder how it’s going to go. However, as days go by, you start meeting people and even make a group of friends.

I’m really glad I had an experience like this one. I’d like to thank ESL, the family and the school for making it so easy and for being so kind. I recommend this experience to all the brave ones out there who want to see something different, discover new places and learn at the same time.

I definitely made the right choice when I decided to study at Wimbledon School of English for a month. ESL gave me all the information I needed to in order to organise a tailor-made programme. In my case, my goal was to get the CAE certificate and attend 4 weeks of intensive course before sitting the test.

The teachers and the rest of the staff at the school were always ready to help out if you have questions of any kind. The level and the pace of the classes were high, but the teaching was dynamic, which made them more enjoyable. Besides the courses, the school offered a large variety of cultural and social activities, creating a very good atmosphere. It was a very enriching experience and was absolutely worth it.

I couldn’t be more grateful to ESL for treating me so well. They provided a fast and efficient service, managing to adapt the programme to my personal needs in a record time… 3 weeks after contacting them, I was traveling to Boston. It was the best choice ever! Boston has a great student atmosphere, as two of its universities – Harvard and MIT – are amongst the most prestigious in the world. It’s easy to move around the city, which has one of the oldest downtowns in the US. I lived on campus, where there were tons of activities every day to help students know each other. I felt at home from the very fist day; everyone was really friendly and made you feel like you belonged. I made great friends from different countries, which really enriched my stay. Good memories!
