Von der Beratung bis zu den Reservationen hat alles perfekt geklappt. London bietet neben der kulinarischen Vielfalt sehr viele Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten und zum Shoppen ist diese Stadt sowieso Top. Klassenräume sind zum Teil etwas klein. Teilweise hat es nur ein ganz kleines Pult am Stuhl befestigt. Die Infrastruktur ansonsten ist Top. Die Sommerresidenz am Pancras Way ist sehr gut gelegen. Die Bahnhöfe, Pancras und Euston sind gut zu Fuss erreichbar und das Unterhaltungsviertel, Camden ist ebenfalls sehr nah. Die Zimmer sind sehr einfach aber zweckgemäss eingerichtet. Das eigene Bad ist sehr klein aber ok. Die Schule ist sehr gut organisiert und die Angestellten sehr freundlich und Hilfsbereit

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ich habe Fortschritte erzielt, weil ich mich vor dem Aufenthalt sehr gut vorbereitet hatte und dann die ganzen 2 Wochen nur Englisch gesprochen habe. Neben der Klasse habe ich den Lernstoff laufend repetiert. Der Unterricht war sehr vielseitig und interessant gestaltet. Ausserdem war der Exit-Test besser als der Placement-Test. »
School highlights
« Der Kaffee war besser als bei Starbucks. :-) Der Bereich für das Selbststudium 30+ vor der Reception ist sehr gut für das Selbststudium und das Treffen anderer Studenten aus anderen Klassen geeignet. »
Top tips
« Die Anlässe am Sonntag vor Schulbeginn sind genial. Man lernt schon mal andere Studenten und Lehrer kennen. Es lohnt sich auch einen Gruppenchat im Watsapp einzurichten, damit man sich dann Treffen- an und abmelden kann. »

Testimonials

Agnès Vieira
Agnès Vieira

I chose to study in England because it is important for me to study in a country where history and culture are strong. I wanted to improve my English language skills but also to acquire the English accent. And I made the right choice to join the 30 plus programme. Teachers are very well prepared in addition to being very kind and helpful. Courses were just fascinating with an excellent balance between grammar and cultural aspects. I also took some one-to-one courses that were totally adapted to my requests and needs, for example I could have technical support for writing professional letters or samples of my CV.

Then London as a city is just an incredible place! Impossible to get bored with everything that is on offer, from museums to pubs or shopping... My favourite places were Soho, Camden and of course Covent Garden! Thank you so much to everyone!! I will miss you for sure...

Duration: 4 weeks

Hello everyone!

My name is Cristina and I'm spanish. When I lost my job I felt it was time to improve my english and EC Covent Garden +30 absolutely met all the requirements I was looking for, so I decided to come for a month.

You will ask whether it is worth it. Of course it is! Here you can meet great people from other countries and different cultures with the same goals as you. At the school everybody works hard to meet your aims: learn and improve the language, will be easy and fun.

With the different teachers you practice grammar, learn new vocabulary and how to pronounce it correctly, and more important, they help you to put into practice in the most natural way: talking.

But there is more, after the classes, the school offers you the possibility to visit the most important places, museums and monuments of the city in the very good company.

At the weekend also there is the possibility to perform various activities such as trips, musicals and plays. Everything you can imagine and more.

Finally, if your are thinking about starting a new experience like mine, I recommend you don't hesitate and get in touch with ESL. They will be happy to give you all the information you need.

I spent two great weeks at the EC London School for students over age 30, and the truth is that it was an amazing experience. From the moment you arrive, you feel wonderfully welcomed and taken care of. Both the residence and the school completely fulfil your expectations, and the school organises lots of different activities. This type of experience allows you to learn in addition to meeting tons of people in an international environment. You experience London in a different, incomparable way. I’ll be going back!
