Student Testimonial

I’m very pleased to be in EC Cambridge again! I have been learning English since last year and I left EC before lockdown happened. Nobody could imagine what would happen in the nearest future. Things changed a lot! But if you made plans, you need to look forward to achieving your goals. Having lessons in the safe, cozy classroom with motivated classmates is an incredible opportunity to keep going in the “new normal” life.

Teacher Testimonial

I've always believed that the more effort you put into something, the more you get out of it and I think this is totally true when it comes to learning or teaching English. I love trying to create exciting, energetic lessons which encourage my students to respond in an enthusiastic and productive way. In this way they learn and have fun at the same time!

Working for EC enables me to bring my personality and teaching style into the classroom because I know that I'm supported as a teacher by the rest of the staff and the organisation as a whole. At the same time, I'm challenged and encouraged to develop professionally by working closely with my colleagues who are always full of ideas and bring a depth of experience and knowledge. EC Cambridge is a great school with a really friendly atmosphere. The city is natural place to study in as so many other students are around you and there is an atmosphere of learning (and playing too!)
