    Last month in May I decided to go study English in Malta in St Julian’s, at the EC School. I booked the school through ESL and my experience was great. They answer all your questions and give you all the information you need right away. I really improved my English level. The school and the teaching methodology are really good in my opinion, getting you to speak with your classmates and explaining everything you don’t understand as many times as necessary, which was perfect for me. I met people of many different nationalities from whom I learned a lot about their cultures. The experience was so great that in February of next year, I’m going back.

    My language stay in Bristol was one of the best experiences in my life. I took a course at EC and I improved my English a lot, thanks to friendly and experienced teachers. I met many people coming from different countries and all of them were really nice. I stayed in a host family; my hosts were very nice and caring, and they made me feel at home. This trip was very enriching, on both a personal and educational level. I would like to thank ESL for their help and efficiency when I had problems or doubts. I recommend them with no hesitation. My trip to Bristol will stay in my memory forever. I’ll always have Bristol!

    I decided to go abroad by myself to travel and improve my English. I went all in on an adventure without knowing what awaited me, and I returned with the idea that it had been the best experience of my life. I decided to go to Cork, a city in Ireland which in my opinion is really beautiful, and the amount of people from other cultures you find there that you meet in experiences like these is incredible. Ireland is a beautiful country where in less than a month you can visit some of its most important cities. I returned to Spain with the desire to go back, and I hope I can count on help from ESL again!
