Student Testimonial

I've just spent the best three months of my life here at EC Brighton. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I met a lot of people from different countries who are now my friends. I'm really happy to have discovered Brighton. You should definitely come to EC Brighton if you want to study in a friendly atmosphere.

Teacher Testimonial

My name is Charlotte Goodyear and I have been working at EC Brighton for almost two years as a teacher. The thing I love most about this job is meeting new people from different cultures and learning about their countries. I am hugely embarrassed to say that I was nominated as the best teacher of the year 2012 by my colleagues, so I guess I must be doing something right.

Most importantly, I love my job so I always come to work with a smile. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking and eating. As a vegetarian I eat a lot of cheese and I feel that pizza is a perfectly acceptable meal for any time of day. I also love going out clubbing at the weekend with my friends and searching for new pubs to go to as there are over 300 in Brighton! I am also trying to learn French at the moment… but I haven’t got very far :)
