“I’ll never forget the three weeks I spent in ETC, doing a General English Course and a Medical English course. Everybody (staff and students) welcomed me with open arms, and I found the lessons very dynamic, fun and participatory, really fantastic.  Medical English has been wonderful. I learnt the vocabulary for treating a patient, the meaning of the acronyms used by a doctor in UK, the organisation of the English health system…all in three weeks and always great fun. Of course, I made many good friends. For me, this experience has been unforgettable and I recommend to all people who want to learn English, and all physicians who want to learn Medical English. Thank you for all ETC.” – Pilar Izquierdo Garcia, Spain. 15th March, 2011
