A nice city to study English in (better if you go in summer though)

I very much recommend downloading an audiobook or some music and then just walk the streets. The canal at the school is a small dirty thing but if you walk alongside it to the west (downstream) you'll find some cute scenery, with a slightly wider canal, nice places to eat, and overall nicer places to walk around. Also, make sure to always bring an umbrella.

Manchester is a nice city. You're able to visit...

Manchester is a nice city. You're able to visit many attractions on foot and the public transport is an additional benefit which works very well. In my opinion, generally the city is too dirty. There are too many homeless people which is terrible to see if you are not used to it and not familiar with this situation. The nightlife also has two faces. There are many locations to have fun and enjoy the nightlife, but there are also many drunk people who are argumentative. If you see the bigger picture of Manchester, it’s a city worth visiting.

Hello, I’m Kawá from the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. I highly recommend the Essential English Language Centre where I studied for five weeks. As it was my first time outside of the rainforest, I was quite nervous about studying English, especially in England, but from the moment I stepped through the door, the kind welcome from the staff and teachers melted away my fear. The teachers at the EELC are committed to building confidence in their students and providing them with the skills to flow in the English language. I am extremely grateful to the EELC team, especially, the directors of the school, Jo and Bairb, for the support and encouragement they extend to all their students. Thank you - it’s a five star language centre!
