Credo che in estate ci sia un ricambio di allievi e docenti troppo veloce ed è tutto un po' confusionario. Per lunghi periodi sconsiglierei l'estate se possibile. Oltretutto in estate aumenta molto il numero di chi parla italiano causa vacanze varie, nonostante la percentuale annuale risulti forse bassa.

« La pratica nell'utilizzo della lingua è stata sicuramente d'aiuto, però credo che a livelli alti (da B2 circa) la maggior parte della grammatica debba essere considerata appresa, in modo che ci si possa concentrare su altri aspetti della lingua, in particolare il suo utilizzo da parte dei madrelingua. »

Questo è stato il secondo anno in cui ho partecipato a un soggiorno linguistico. L'esperienza è stata molto bella anche se all'inizio non è stato facile, a causa della differenza di età che c'era con gli altri studenti. Poi però con il passare dei giorni mi sono ambientata e il soggiorno linguistico si è rivelato molto positivo e interessante. Sia la scuola che i professori mi sono piaciuti molto: erano molto preparati e rendevano le lezioni attive e interessanti. C'era un dialogo positivo e continuo con gli insegnanti che si mostravano sempre pronti ad aiutarti. Il Residence Study Inn mi è stato consigliato dalla responsabile dell'agenzia con cui ho organizzato il viaggio. Ho trovato il residence adatto alle mie esigenze; inoltre si trova vicino alla scuola e vicino al centro storico, in una zona molto tranquilla. Anche la stanza mi è piaciuta tanto: era confortevole e con tutto il necessario.Lo staff si è mostrato sempre gentile e disponibile.

Assistenza ESL ottima, io ho parlato con Jacopo Fossati nella sede di Monza. Mi ha spiegato tutto in modo molto dettagliato e completo. Prima della partenza mi hanno inviato tutte le informazioni e mi hanno fornito completa assistenza. Viaggio studio indimenticabile, credo che sicuramente sarò intenzionata a rifare un’esperienza del genere

Testimonials

I stayed at the EC school in Cambridge, which is a really good school. Located in a brand new building, the classrooms are all equipped with multimedia boards and a presenter. The lessons are playful and interesting, they will definitely allow you to make progress in English. Moreover, the welcoming staff as well as the teachers are really nice and will do everything to help you if you are facing any kind of problem. Which is really good. I was won over by this work method, which allows you to participate with all the students and even the teachers. There is a very good atmosphere in the classroom, which allows you to connect with the other students. This method allows you to make progress in the way you express yourself in English, in your understanding but also in your writing. I personally think I made progress in all these areas.

I am also very satisfied with the organization of ESL and with the staff who knows how to listen to you and does whatever is necessary to answer all your questions.

I personally loved my stay.

I only have one thing to say, thanks for this beautiful experience!

EC, Cambridge

Punting, King’s College, Great St Mary’s – this is Cambridge. The central library in the shopping centre, the pub The Eagle, the place where DNA was discovered and many English schools – this is Cambridge too.

The renowned English university town, located 80 km to the north east of London and of the same size as Bern, is not famous for its parties, but rather for its teaching tradition. The EC school where I studied English is located in the town centre, right next to the venerable marketplace and the recently inaugurated Grand Arcade commercial centre. If you don’t want to give up parties, even though your course schedule is quite busy, you are welcome to visit the town’s numerous pubs, nightclubs and student houses. Despite the peaceful atmosphere of the place, you can have fun everywhere – because where there are students, there are parties!

EC, Cambridge
Duration: 8 weeks

Spending 8 weeks in Cambridge is an incredible and unforgettable experience. The location of the EC school was just perfect. Right in the centre of the town, next to the shopping centre and to Market Square. At lunchtime, I would visit the market and taste some local specialties together with my friends from all over the world.

The teachers were extremely friendly and spent a lot of time with the students, even after classes. For instance, they often took part in the weekly football match in the park or went for a drink with the students.

The various leisure activities too leave no room for boredom: punting on the river Cam, visit of the colleges or of St Mary’s Tower, weekly outings to see musicals, or else weekend excursions to other English and Scottish cities! And of course, you will also enjoy the town of Cambridge, which is simply beautiful, with its narrow streets, its colleges and its numerous parks.

The EC school is a big family, which makes for a wonderful experience!
