This is the second time to study English at ETC. I had two different classes last time which is two years ago, general English and Medical English. It was really good and fun so I decided to study English here again.

I had general English class for first three month then took IELTS class after that.(3 month)
Both classes are very fun, Also ETC has different activities every day after school. I’ve been to Tea Club, Knitting club, Book club and Conversation club. I was so happy to join these clubs and spent great time with my friends. There is no Japanese (only one or two sometimes), but now I have so many friends all over the world. I had really good experiences at ETC.

ETCで勉強するのは今回が2回目です。2年前、一般英語と医療英語の授業を受けて、とても勉強になったので、今回もETCで勉強することを決めました。

今回ETCでは6ヶ月勉強しましたが、初めの3ヶ月は一般英語、その後の3ヶ月はIELTSのコースに変更して授業を受けました。どちらのクラスもとても役に立ち、楽しく学ぶことができました。また、ETCは放課後に課外活動があり、私はそのうちのTea Club, Knitting club, book club, Conversation clubに参加しました。どこのクラブもとても充実していて、放課後の時間を友達と楽しく過ごすことができました。日本人は本当に少なかったのですが、様々な国の友達ができて、とても良い経験をすることができました。

Hey guys, this school is absolutely amazing.

I was a student for 2 years and half in total learning general and Business English, and IELTS course. I definitely had brilliant time, experience and achievement. Thus, I was able to study at one of the best UK university for sport (of course, I have finished my MSc as well). What I want to tell you guys is that there are not only good teachers but also fantastic atmosphere in this school.

Oh! furthermore, the reasonable price! I miss all the teachers and staff at ETC a lot. AND Bournemouth, the lovely town!

ETC school of English is the place where you learn English under high quality standards, find different alternatives to invest your free time and make new friends from all over the world. ETC language school offers an integral way of learning English and it keeps its promise.
Camila Vélez, Colombia
I enjoyed at school while I stayed. Students, staff and all of them are really friendly and nice. I learned so many things without studying English.

Also I enjoyed activities. Some of the place is too expensive to go myself and far, but if we join these activities, we can go great place with great friends.

I like conversation club as well.
Almost people are so nervous at first so it’s good to everyone and I made a lot of friend in this club.

We can meet different English level people in this club too so we can learn English and other culture from them.

I couldn’t speak any English when I came here, but I tried to listen carefully and started to use easy English that I knew.

1年近い長い間ありがとうございました。英語以外にもたくさんのことを学びました。先生やスタッフ、友達が優しいので、友達と一緒にいるとき以外も楽しかったです。

話をすれば相手にしてくれたりと、自分の英語の勉強にもなりました。学校の授業以外には、アクティビティがあるのがとても楽しく、良かったです。なかなか個人で行くには高かったり、大変なところに行くことができるので。

カンバセーションクラブでは、友達作りのきっかけになるので、とても良いと思いました。最初はみんなナーバスなので、こういうきっかけがとても大切だと思います。

また、クラスだけだと、同じレベルの人と話すだけで英語の向上や友達作りも難しいので、こっちに来て「話す」ことの大切さが身にしみました。(ニュアンスや新しい単語やフレーズを知ることができるので)
私は最初はしゃべれなかったですが、とにかく聞いて、知っている単語から使うことで、ここまでくることができました。

そういった面を含め、レジデンスは良かったです。

La mia esperienza al ETC e stata molto positiva perche e una scuola che offre ottime opportunita per imparare l inglese e si avvale di insegnanti molto competenti che forniscono diverse e valide attivita di apprendimento che rispondono ai diversi bisogni di ciascuno.La scuola e dotata di attrezzature quali computer, aule spaziose e ben tenute,biblioteca e una caffetteria dove ci si puo incontrare per il pranzo e stare insieme agli altri studenti.

It was a fantastic experience to spend time in ETC! I enjoyed talking with my friends from abroad, and teachers always taught us with passion. And, Bournemouth is a beautiful and peaceful town, so it is a good environment to study. My host family was so nice. They are so lovely English family.

I would like you to have a conversation club more often and earlier. Because in my country, Japan, We students are trained to be quiet and polite in class, so it is not easy to get used the class in ETC.

Also, I really hoped to join a conversation club but I was living with host family, so I couldn’t.

Mina Yunoki, Japan
ETCで、今回とても良い経験ができたと思っています。いろいろな国のクラスメイトや生徒と触れ合うことができ、会話も毎回弾みました。また、講師も私たちへ英語を教える姿勢がとても前向きで、全力で向き合ってくれますよ。ボーンマスについていうと、とても穏やかで素敵な町でした。英語を勉強するのにはとてもいい環境となっているのではないでしょうか。また、私はホストファミリーにも恵まれ、毎日本当に楽しく過ごすことができました。

一つ残念に思うことは、午後にあるカンバセーションクラブに参加ができなかったことですね。時間の都合もありますが、もう少し回数が増えるといいなと思っています。日本人は特に、ほかの国と学習のスタイルが違うので、クラスに慣れるのに時間がかかりますから、こういったクラブに積極的に参加できる環境が整うとさらにいいのではないでしょうか。

Mina Yunoki, Japan
After a long trip, we are safely home. It was a wonderful experience at ETC for all my group and we want to thank you for your attention with us. The families, the classes, our guides, the trips, everything made us enjoy each moment. We had a great time together. I am very thankful to ETC Programme for providing such amazing opportunity to live in Bournemouth.

I am thankful to all teachers, especially Tina, who were always very nice to us, helping us during our stay at ETC. And thanks for showing us England.

We are also very thankful to our lovely host families for receiving us
in their family and taking care of us.

Hope to see you next year.

With love,

There are many opportunities to meet people from all areas in the English language school. ETC is the best place to study English in England. The quality of teaching is excellent. The staff are very friendly and are always very willing to help with any difficulties we may be experiencing.

I will never forget the time I have spent at ETC English language school and I have thoroughly enjoyed it here.

Residence

Just next to school and it is good location. Makes friend easily and English getting better and better. Watched tv, study and make some plans for trip with friend. It was bit noisy when I lives ground floor. Cant use kitchen in residence.

Food is good. Toast, drinks, fruit, cereal for breakfast and warm meal for dinner.

Washing is bit expensive for me in residence so I used outside one around school.

寮について

学校のすぐ隣で通学に便利。友達作りやすく、会話力が伸びやすいと思う。食後にみんなでテレビを見たり、勉強したり旅行の計画を立てたりした。部屋が1階だと外からの音とレセプションのが響いてうるさいときもあった。キッチンは学生使用不可のため、朝夕食付を選択。朝はトースト、シリアル、フルーツ、ヨーグルト、紅茶やコーヒーなど。夕ご飯は温かい食事を作ってもらえた。味はそのときのシェフによる。

6週間いて、食べれないようなまずいものはなかった。寮で洗濯を頼むと高いので、近くのコインランドリーを使用した。
