HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR STUDENTS
“With the assistance of the CEC community – its compassionate teachers, activity leaders, administrative personnel as well as my inspiring classmates – I managed to raise my proficiency of English from a B2 to a solid C1. Above all, I always had a good time.”
I will always keep a nice memory of the month spent in Cork, and this thanks to CEC, which in addition to letting me deepen my English, made me discover breathtaking places and meet unforgettable people.
Well, I’ll never forget my time at CEC, after all, it was a year and a half very well spent. I’m extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to build my English here. Grrreat teachers, welcoming people and an incredible city/culture. Thank you very much CEC team for all support and keep up the brilliant work!
