Ich fand es ein bisschen unpraktisch, dass es in einigen Klassenzimmern nur kleine Tischchen an den Stühlen hatte und keine richtigen Tische. Ich hatte immer zu wenig Platz für meine Bücher. Ich war mit meinen Lehrern sehr zufrieden. Ich habe in dieser Zeit viel gelernt, vorallem meinen Wortschatz vergrössert. Ich war sehr zufrieden mit dem Wohnheim, nur unsere Gemeinschaftsküche passte mir nicht. Leider haben die anderen Studenten ihre Sachen nicht abgewaschen und versorgt, deswegen stand oft schmutziges Geschirr herum, deswegen habe ich die Küche nicht sehr oft benutzt.

« Durch meinen Sprachaufenthalt habe ich vor allem die Angst zu sprechen verloren und Freude an der Sprache bekommen. Mein Vokabular ist ebenfalls gewachsen. Weiterhin verbessern müsste ich vor allem meine Grammatik, wobei ich da wohl bei einem niedrigeren Level starten müsste. »

EC Euston, London
Duration: 6 weeks

My language stay ran very smoothly and I lived an incredible experience that allowed me to meet new people and, of course, to improve my English! The city is very beautiful, it’s always very exciting to be back here, especially to live here for a longer period of time. I fitted in very well at school, the building is modern and there are common areas where you can meet friends after classes and during the breaks. The school staff is very kind and ready to help, the teachers are great and they use efficient and innovative methods to teach students in an entertaining way. The location of the school is very convenient and close to the station. I got along very well with my host family, they were all very kind and helpful! I would like to thank ESL for the perfect organization of my trip and for the advice they gave me to make the right choice with the school and the accommodation! If I could repeat this experience in the future, I would definitely choose ESL!

Duration: 11 weeks

I am very satisfied with the trip to London arranged with ESL, since both the school EC London and the residence Somerset Court have been a success. The school facilities are modern, the classes are very entertaining and the teachers care about the students. The groups are very heterogeneous and the teamwork is highly encouraged, in order to relate better with peers and practice the language. They also organize many activities throughout the week. In terms of the accommodation in residence, I couldn’t have chosen better. It is very close to the school, the room is fine, and many EC students live here, which is an advantage. It’s also a good area to live, with supermarkets close at hand and a metro station nearby.

EC Euston, London
Duration: 3 months

More than a language holiday, a life experience. I travelled to London for 3 months. It was the first time there and my level of English really left a lot to be desired: needless to say I was both impatient and anxious. In the end, I was more shaken up than hurt because you meet incredible people very quickly, the classes are adapted to each level and nobody judges you, because we are all in the same boat!

In addition, the school organises a social programme (restaurant, museum visits, activities, etc.) to show you around the city, so you never get bored! It comes without saying that London is a very active city with lots of things to discover, monuments, art, shopping, the Queen, let alone a few pubs.

To conclude, I think such an experience teaches you a lot about the language, which is the primary goal, but also about being independent and managing yourself. I strongly recommend it and if I could, I would go back there as soon as I can!
