Student Testimonial

I chose EC because it is a famous school with a good reputation.
 
I have learned a lot of things and I have improved a lot. I now know how to talk to other people in English. I really enjoyed studying, making new friends and meeting people from around the world.
 
Playing football with my friends was my favourite EC activity and I liked using English all the time in my accommodation.
 
I would recommend EC Manchester to anyone, the staff here are more helpful than other schools.
 
I will never forget anything from my stay.

Teacher Testimonial

My name is Irina and I live in Sheffield. Languages are my passion, and I’ve always been fascinated by the way they work. I speak Russian and some German, but there are many more I’d love to learn! I enjoy meeting people from all over the world and learning about new cultures as well.

I have a degree in Linguistics and started my career as a translator. My first teaching job was in the south of Russia, which I really enjoyed. I have also taught English to people from different countries at a community centre in Sheffield. I did my CELTA course several months ago, and that was a fantastic experience. I have been an EFL teacher for over two years and have taught all General English levels and Cambridge exam preparation classes. I have worked with both adults and children.

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes, after all, it’s the only way to learn. Besides, native speakers sometimes make mistakes too! Step out of your comfort zone and try something you’ve not done before – ask for directions, start a conversation with a shop assistant, or simply chat with a complete stranger. You’ll feel so much better about yourself. Think of learning English as training for a marathon – it’s important that you do something for it every single day, and the results will follow!
