Student Testimonial

❓What’s your hometown? Can you describe it to us?
• I’m from Colombia, one of the most beautiful countries in South America, I was born in Bucaramanga, a wonderful city full of colour and tradition, two months later I moved to Melgara – a small town where I grew up. All my life I kept moving around Colombia because of the work of my father. This gave me the opportunity to know more about my amazing country.
 
❓What did you do before coming to EC Oxford?
• Before this fantastic experience I was a student in Colombia finishing my high school, after that I started my university in Bogota, the capital. I did my first semester of law and I will finish when I get back Colombia.
 
❓What is your favourite thing about studying at EC Oxford?
• EC Oxford gives you a lot of opportunities and challenges that encourage you to give everything. This is great because you try and try to push yourself and this makes your English better and better. The way of learning in EC is quite different to others, here we are a family, we share a lot of time and our memories becomes one.
 
❓What do you recommend in Oxford for other students?
• You need to enjoy this experience the most as possible, I came for six months and now I just have one left. Time flies and you can’t notice, but at the end when you open your eyes you’re in a plane going back home. I just can recommend to participate in all the activities that EC has for you and lose yourself in all the things that Oxford can give you.
 
❓Can you tell us one thing that surprised you about living in the UK?

 • The UK always surprises me, the mix of culture makes you feel like you are in a constant trip, you can find all type of food and wonderful places, in my opinion, my favourites ones are the cosy coffees shops because makes me feel like I’m home!

Teacher Testimonial

I have been working at EC Oxford since August and have been involved in teaching both adults and young learners as well as participating in the social programme and workshops. EC Oxford is an excellent environment to work in; all of the staff are very friendly and highly motivated and work with an enthusiasm which is highly conductive to learning. I have never felt as motivated or productive in any other place. Furthermore, there are several factors which I believe mark EC Oxford out as the best choice for an English student. 

Firstly, our motivated and resourceful staff work tirelessly to bring out the best in our students. Our reception team is very friendly and accommodating, and is always attentive to student needs whether it be accommodation, work or medical related. We are constantly seeking to ensure that our students are as happy as possible, and accommodated with all of the amenities they need.

Secondly, our educational curriculum is second to none. Main classes are supplemented with grammar and pronunciation workshops, reading groups, and informal speaking meet-ups. Our very capable teachers continuously seek to personalise the educational process, tailoring it to the needs of the individual student. 

Finally, EC Oxford is situated in the heart of the city centre of Oxford; a beautiful historic university town in the heart of England, a stone’s throw away from London, the modern metropolitan capital of Britain. Students who come to this school therefore have the unique opportunity to experience English culture in a way that may not be afforded to them by any other language schools.
