Le staff ainsi que les enseignants sont vraiment sympa. Ils sont là pour nous à n’importe quel moment. Les enseignants ont du plaisir à enseigner et partage énormément leur savoir avec les étudiants. L’avantage lorsqu’on partage sa chambre avec un autre étudiant c’est que l’on fait plus connaissance avec sa roomate et cela implique que l’on parle beaucoup plus anglais, ayant été dans une famille d’accueil au début, j’ai plus parlé en partagant ma chambre avec une étudiante que dans une famille d’accueil.

« Oui je me suis amélioré en Anglais car le faite de vivre dans le pays et pratiquer tout les jours aide. De plus, l’école a été parfaite elle nous a permis de faire régulièrement des tests pour voir si on pouvais monter de level. Et le faite de partager sa chambre permet d’évoluer avec notre anglais. »

Duration: 10 weeks

The people who work at EC are very kind and give me a familiar sensation. I am very lucky. The teachers explain in a good way to let me understand words, and if I have some problems, I can ask. They make the classes interesting. San Diego is beautiful, relaxing, and the people are very kind.

EC, San Diego
Duration: 18 weeks

I really liked EC San Diego because the school’s location is incredible, being located right next to the sea and you can reach two of the most beautiful beaches of San Diego in 10 minutes. The school is really well organized and all the staff are very friendly, competent and professional. Furthermore, most of the teachers are young but very knowledgeable which allows a good cooperation with the students and creates perfect learning conditions. Finally, a lot of diverse activities are prepared by the staff throughout the whole week which are really useful to meet new students and to discover the city. San Diego is an incredible city which can be described by these two words: friendly and easy-going!

EC, San Diego
Duration: 4 weeks

San Diego is a very diverse city. On one side, you have Downtown and its buildings standing alongside the “Gaslamp Quarter”, with all the beautiful boutiques and cupcakes shops! It’s the city centre, where you can go out at night or take a boat to visit Coronado. On the other side, you have Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach and La Jolla! The first one is a hippy area where you can spend the night on the beach around a bonfire, singing “No Woman No Cry” with amazing strangers! The second one is a more residential neighborhood, but it’s incredible! The very long beach and the shops on Garnet and Grand Avenue were my “head quarter” for a month. As for La Jolla, I loved the atmosphere and a beautiful cove next to the resting sea lions, a few minutes from the school. This trip was unforgettable not only because San Diego is a city full of surprises, but also thanks to the warm people at school – both teachers and students!
