"The experience was very educational and amazing."

Elsa Viljakainen, student from Finland

Already on my first day in EC English Language School, I felt very welcome. Both the teachers and the other students were supportive and kind. Even if I was in EC school just two weeks, on the last day it was so hard to say goodbye and it felt like I have spent already about a half year with these people. I'd have loved to study even longer in the school. I got many lovely new friends and a few very close friends during those weeks.

The classes and the learning methods worked fine for me. The few activities I had time to do in those two weeks were nice. I think that also the different activities were one of the ways how I learned more English. For example when we visited the zoo, I realized that I spoke so much English with my friends and it felt very natural. In my opinion there could be more of those kind of activities.

I loved that the school was located in the center of Washington D.C. It was so easy to get some food on lunch break and to come to school by subway. However, sometimes noise for example from traffic disturbed me.

"Quite a nice experience"

Gustavo Rabelo, student from Brazil

First of all, they have an interesting process to receive and conduct the new students and also the methods used to the whole learning process.

In my opinion I was in a class that was below my level. Although I was there just for a week, I concentrated my efforts to take advantage of knowing the teachers and colleagues.

I really recommend this school.

"Awesome!"

Saul Enrique Espinoza Soriano, student from Peru

It was a heart warming experience being part of such great group, Tony and his crew were very on our learning experience.
Teachers are highly energetic people who make the learning experience unforgettable.
The location of EC is at the center. Located in a point where you can start your tourism activities with your classmates or on your own.
I think EC should introduce students who will share the house upfront, although it was not a big concern for me as I interacted with others who were staying at the B&B place that I was in.
The activities led by professors were great, I enjoyed the museums, the Gallery of art, White house and other attractions.
After the pre-assessment on the first day of school I think students in general should be allowed to join some of the lessons held between 11.00 am to 2.30 pm.

Dear Saul,

Thank you very much for your nice comments. We are glad that you had a great time with EC Washington.

You certainly have a valid point about introducing flatmates in advance so they can get to know each other a bit. We will take it into consideration for future reference.

Again thank you choosing EC and we look forward to meeting you one day at EC Washington or any of EC's 21 + amazing centres all over the world

Regards

"I was loaded with information about the city and I really enjoy all that I learnt in only one week."

Tuperna Mette Larsen, student from Greenland

EC Washington, D.C. is located near the Greenland Representation - Whitehaven - where my friend works, and it is only a few blocks away from my hotel, as well as the metro, so I didn’t have to spend much time on transport. It is also the capital of the US.

In only one week, I learnt a lot about the US that I did not know before, especially about its political system.

I don't know if I can say that my English has improved, but I immediately got feedback from the teachers, which I am really grateful of.

My favorite activity was to see the United States Capitol. We got a lot of information about the US and it was a huge experience for me, because it was where the President of the US had made the State of the Union address just a day before.

I really enjoyed my stay at the school because it was a new school with great facilities and pupils who were interested in their studies - and I really liked the staff, as they were all very friendly and eager to give you information about the US. I learned a lot in all your lessons.

I would indeed recommend EC Washington, D.C. to a friend, because you get loaded with information about the city and the US, which you can use information in your everyday life when you are here in Washington D.C..

I had only been at the school for a week, so I didn't get close to my classmates, but I talked to a lot of students and they were all very kind to me. They came from Venezuela, Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Turkey and the United Emirates of Arab. I am very thankful to the EC Washington, D.C. staff because you made a place where one could feel safe, so it was easy to talk to the other students.

I had not been on any social activities, but I think it was a good idea to do something together outside the school so the students could learn something from each other and use it to work better together in the class.

I will remember a lot of things from my stay at EC Washington, D.C.. For instance, I will remember the huge amount of information that all the teachers and the staff gave on the first day at school. The best part is that they continue to give the students all the information about the school, especially about the city Washington D.C. and the country, United States of America, how the political situation works and the great history behind this great country. I am really thankful that I was at your school because it gave me time to think about my own country and our political system. Thank you for a great week.

Sincerely
Tuperna Larsen
from Nuuk - Greenland

"Bright, new, and good English school"

Guillem Torne Almonte, student from Spain

The classrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The teachers were good, nice and very helpful to the students.

The school is placed in a very good area at the center of the town, very near to two metro stations, which is consequently a fantastic location.
The sitting area was very comfortable to spend some time during breaks, and the coffee area offered all we could need during the breaks .The computer area also had enough computers to get in touch with our families, look for activities, and check some information about our homework.

The activities were very poor, mainly in December and January. All the activities I did, I organized them by myself.

My house was very big and the owners were very nice and friendly. We had long talks during my stay. The only problem was that I had to walk 10 minutes in the middle of the road with the cars, take a bus, and then the metro.

"Great opportunity to improve my skills"

Thadeu Tarouquela de Castro, student from Brazil

The teacher and the structure of the course were really good. I have no words. I would like to thank everyone from the staff for a pleasant course. The location was great as it was very close to a subway station and had lots of convenience stores nearby.

A point of improvement would be the English level test. It was notorious that there was a lack of more classes and sub-levels.

Dear Thadeu,

Thank you very much for your nice words and positive comments.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with EC Washington. We are lucky to have you with us for a brief stay!

With regard to your suggested improvement, first of all we would like to thank you for taking time and sharing your honest advice, we appreciate that.
We noticed that you were with us for a week mid November which is considered low travel season for most students. Therefore, we didn't have lots of other students to make up a whole classroom for many other levels. However, EC Washington did try to compensate this by offering more electives courses.

We hope you can revisit us next time to have a better experience and hopefully during summer high season when we have more students.

Best Regards,
EC

"Less than expected"

Nafez Hussein, student from Kuwait

The best thing ever that I liked in this school was that its location was beside the housing.

Staying with a local family is both exciting and rewarding. Host families provide the best insight into how an American family leads their life. This interaction with a family helps you communicate better, faster and allows you to pick up words and phrases used in daily situations. All families are English speaking and are happy to share all of Washington’s cultural and traditional aspects with you!

There is no typical homestay in Washington. Some homes are single standing homes, apartments or multifamily homes.

Washington people come from all over the US and the world but all of them are American and call Washington home. Our host families reflect this diversity and include single people, couples, parents with children, and single-parent families.

Each room is furnished with a bed, desk, closet and waste paper basket. You will also have access to a shared bathroom.

Description of local area

Washington, DC is a very diverse city with people from all over America and from all over the world. As well as being a world famous capital city, it is also one of the oldest cities in the US, and is home to many beautiful buildings and historic neighborhoods.

The DC area is a great place to learn about government and politics, of course, but it also has other attractions. There is also a buzzing music scene, trendy shopping districts, the picturesque areas of Georgetown and Alexandria, and food that ranges from chili hot dogs to Ethiopian cuisine. Sports fans can easily enjoy watching baseball, football, basketball, soccer and ice hockey. There are also renowned theatres and concert venues and prestigious university campuses.

The District of Columbia (DC) itself is not so big, with a population of about 600,000 residents. The metropolitan area (or ‘Metro Area’) which includes the nearest parts of the states of Virginia and Maryland, such as Arlington and Alexandria, is home to over 6 million people. All our homestays are located in areas that are easily accessible via public transport.

Downtown Vs Metro Area

Downtown homestays are no more than a 40-commute commute to the school and typically require only one form of public transport, either bus or metro.

Metro Area homestays could be up to a one hour commute to the school and often require two forms of public transport such as bus and train.

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $80 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.

Flights and airport transfer

Please note that we do not book flights for our students. If you are researching airfare costs, we recommend using Kayak.com, a search engine that lets you compare flight options from your home country to Washington DC based on your budget, schedule and preferences.

Travel insurance

Study abroad worry-free with Language International's health and personal effects insurance coverage. When you book a course with us, you can opt to purchase an international insurance plan that covers not only your health care cost but also loss of your personal belongings. You must book your insurance in advance when you register.
