I really enjoyed my time in Manchester. The teachers are really friendly and can teach you very well. I also appreciated the weekend social programme tours. Last but not least, I can also recommend to stay in a host family to improve the English additionally. Thank you so much for this amazing time.

I joined the IELTS course at The EEC and I really recommend to everyone who wants to prepare himself/herself to do this exam. In fact I obtained excellent preparation, with all the material I needed, with great classmates and special teachers.I am really glad for choosing this school.

I came to Manchester to study English at The Essential English Centre ( Academic Year Programme) and take my IELTS test for the university because my plan was to study in the UK. I liked studying in my English school because the education was quality and the staff were very nice.
