Brighton ist eine wunderbare Stadt!Ich hätte mir für die zwei Monate keinen besseren Ort wünschen können. Es gibt genügend Ausflugs-, Restaurants-, Ausgangs- und Shoppingsmöglichkeiten. Die Menschen sind sehr offen und ich hatte eine super Zeit! Ich hatte super Lehrpersonen. Insbesondere meine Fokus-Klasse hat unglaublich Spass gemacht und ich habe viel profitiert. Meine Gastmutter war eine ehemalige Englischlehrerin. Sie hat mir viel Englisch beigebracht, ihr Essen war köstlich und das Haus sehr schön! Der einzige Nachteil war, das ich mit dem Bus mind. 30min. zur Schule hatte. Bei Verkehr dauerte es z.T. fast 50min

Nonostante la grande differenza di età (ho 54) anni mi sono trovata molto bene con gli altri alunni, meglio che nella precedente esperienza in un gruppo 30+ a Malta. Le lezioni erano molto vivaci con l ausilio anche degli smartphone x esercizi di gruppo Stanza pulita, dimensione adeguta, doccia grande. C erano anche delle bellissime stanze grandi e con grandi finestre vista mare, mi riservero di chiederne una cosi la prossima volta.

Nationalitäten-Mix allgemein nicht schlecht, allerdings auf der Advanced-Stufe relativ eintönig. Die Gastfamilie war genial. Hat meine Erwartungen um ein Vielfaches übertroffen und ich würde sofort wieder zu ihnen gehen. Das Essen war genial, die Gasteltern sehr sympathisch und die Gegend sehr schön.

EC, Brighton
Duration: 13 weeks

I chose England and Brighton because I had heard a lot about the nightlife and it is without any doubt one of the best cities. The EC school was recommended to me by ESL and some friends. The classes and the teachers are good. My host family was fantastic! I met several people and I liked the time I spent here. It had been a long time since I had gone to school, but it is one of the best human experiences of my life!

EC, Brighton
Duration: 12 weeks

I chose Brighton because I was told it was a party town. And I could verify it. Brighton is a relatively young and very active town since most of its inhabitants are students. You will therefore find something to do at any time of the day!

As regards the school, EC is just amazing, the teachers are well-trained and really attentive to your needs.

I was staying in a residence. If you are quite independent and sociable, choose this option, you will not be disappointed!

So for me, Brighton is the perfect city for an English course, because it is located by the sea, some 50 minutes away from London and, of course, it is a great town for partying!

EC, Brighton
Duration: 3 months

The three months I spent in Brighton were unforgettable, I spent great moments in this beautiful city. Brighton is a very nice city by the sea and very close to London, which is a plus. The nightlife is very lively all week long, there are great clubs and pubs. EC is a very good school, the teachers are fantastic and so is the staff. I don’t regret my choice of accommodation, living in a residence with people from other countries and cultures is a great experience. I met great people whom I will never forget and hope to see again soon!
