What Students Say

Ms. Alice Zaniolo

Hi! I’m Alice, I come from Italy and I was a student at CESC in autumn 2016. I would highly recommend this school to everyone who wants to learn or improve their knowledge of the English language. I attended the IELTS class, as my goal was to achieve at least a 7 in each component of the exam, in order to apply for a Ph.D. in Psychology.

Hi, I’m Laura from Italy. I’ve been to Colchester for three weeks and it was an unforgettable experience. I had a very good time at Cesc where I met lovely people from different countries and I improved my English thanks to qualified teachers. A special thanks to my host Louise who is very kind and always willing with several great recommendations especially on good places to visit. The whole stay was just amazing and I would recommend it to everybody!
Saluti!

CESC is the warmest place in Colchester, it’s home for all foreign students who wish to improve their English. Teachers helped me reach the score I needed  for my further studies and I was surrounded by their full attention, careful, encouragement, and support. The school provides a high quality of teaching taking in consideration everyone’s way of learning and dealing with that in a professional , sensitive and careful way. The flexibility of every staff at the school from the first contact until my last day made my journey just perfect. It was the best destination for me to learn English, improve my skills and meet so many lovely teachers, staffs and students.Host families provided by the school are very nice people ,they treated me like a daughter,  I enjoyed our discussions , our time and every meal we had together .CESC is unforgettable place .And I’m so glad I have been there .
