Insider tips about what future students should not miss: There's no WIFI in the school !!!
I think that teachers at ETC college are very professional, experienced, patient, and also they prepare their clases before going to the classroom to teach the students. The way they teach, and the time they take to prepare their lessons are the thing I most like about ETC college. I also believe that my time as a student at ETC was too short, I would like to come back again to ETC school.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: I recommend this for any student who wants to improve their English: not to talk in their native language with other students from the same country, or students who speak the same language. As a student we must try to speak in English all the time.
Other comments: I am so happy because the school is located at the heart of Bournemouth, with a very comfortable cafeteria and a well equipped classroom. Very nice atmosphere with other students as well.
