I chose to study in Brighton because of some suggestions from a friend of mine about the weather, people, lifestyle and sea. I love the sea that is why I am here. I chose an EC English School because I had heard that the school takes care of the mix of people in each classroom and it is true. I’ve met people from Korea, Turkey, Czech Republic, Spain, Italy and more places. What I enjoyed most about studying at EC Brighton were the people. All the staff are fantastic.

I have chosen EC Brighton because of the Club 50+ programme: It’s never too late to learn. I have enjoyed everything about studying at EC Brighton because when was I young, we could only dream about coming to Western Europe. I think my teacher was generally very good and my lessons enjoyable. It’s also nice to meet people from different countries.

I wanted to go to study in London, but my stepfather showed mehttp://kb.ecenglish.net/node/137/edit some beautiful pictures of Brighton which convinced me to come to this city. I had a look at many language schools and EC looked the most professional. What I have enjoyed most is meeting other people, getting to know them and enjoying the lovely landscape of England.

Brighton is a great place to learn English, meet a lot of British people and there are plenty of activities to entertain your self. I chose EC Brighton because in the past I studied in EC Cambridge and improved my English a lot. I'm sure that I made the most of my time because EC Brighton is enjoyable. The teachers are perfect and cool, and students from all over the world.

I have been in Brighton for two months and I'm really enjoying the town. You can do many things. If you like shopping or going to pubs you have many choices. There are also many activities for tourism so you can visit many places linked to the English culture. Brighton has a very good way of life for young people.

I came to EC Brighton to improve my English because it is near London and it's by the seaside. I really enjoyed the friendship I made with my host family. They were very nice and friendly. My lessons were good and my teachers were excellent.

What do I like about teaching English? It is endlessly fascinating being involved in each individual’s learning as they gain confidence in fluency and being able to communicate with other learners from different cultures. It is a privilege to be part of that process which brings not only greater knowledge of a language but also a deeper understanding of themselves in relation to others. What do I like about EC Brighton? It is a thriving community of people from many different backgrounds who all share their particular skills and knowledge in a friendly environment. Being a seaside resort there are always plenty of sights to see and experiences to talk about – in short a great place to learn English!

When it comes to teaching English at EC Brighton my theory is that personality, lots of energy and a bit of humour certainly count! Students have often asked me if I would consider a job on stage, but my reply is always: “But then I wouldn’t be able to fulfil YOUR lives with my supposed talent!” I can truly say that I love the rewarding feeling I get when I see that I have influenced someone’s life in such a positive way. Not to mention the fact that I can have a good time while doing so! EC Brighton is an awesome place to work!

I am really enthusiastic about teaching as I feel that not only do I teach but I have the opportunity to learn everyday. Students come into the classroom with enthusiasm and experience that always teaches me more about the world and brightens up my day. I also enjoy the challenge of finding new and exciting ways for my students to learn and practise English and seeing them enjoy their lessons and improve is very motivating. In my spare time I also run a shop called TRIBALIK on Sydney street in the beautiful North Laines area of Brighton.

Teaching English as a foreign language provides me with a wide variety of challenges. I meet students from all over the world and all have their own individual needs and reasons for learning English. Teaching classes of mixed nationalities enables me to learn about different countries and cultures as I engage with students and this, in return, gives me the opportunity to improve and develop my own teaching skills on a daily basis. In my spare time my family life keeps me busy as I am a mother of two and a grandmother of two. I also have a pet rabbit called Enoch, who is the boss of my house and garden. However, I do enjoy photography and some of my pictures have been displayed, for sale, at EC school and the local coffee shops in, and around, Brighton. I enjoy walking, cycling, reading, music and creative writing. I am also learning to play the guitar and have been known to take students for a good, old fashioned, British sing song at one of the many local pubs in Brighton and other nearby towns.

I really enjoy working at EC Brighton, it's a great location where I can meet so many people from different cultures and backgrounds. Teaching here provides many great experiences from seeing my students progress and enjoying the lessons to helping them both in and outside the classroom. I have lived around Brighton for most of my life and in my free time I love travelling and have visited over 30 countries, including living in Japan for about four and a half years. I enjoy reading, movies and going out in Brighton where there is always something going on.

After working at EC Brighton since the summer of 2006 I can unequivocally (word of the day – go look it up!) say it’s a great place to be. No two days are the same – my students make sure of that – and it’s nice being able to come to school and work in a happy, professional, but relaxed environment. Part-teacher, part-actor and part-comedian (according to my students), I find this job is certainly not boring and constantly requires you to think on your feet. As well as General English, I also teach Business English, younger learners at summer school and I help to deliver EC’s lecture programme for Academic Year students. Add to that our regular welcome events for new students, pub nights, free pronunciation classes and you’ll see that we have a very busy social calendar here. In fact, that’s something we encourage – learning and practising English doesn’t just happen inside the classroom.

I previously worked in a new media agency in Brighton which specialised in e-learning projects in the education and health sectors. A particular interest of mine is the concept and development of m-learning (e-learning using mobile devices). At EC Brighton I’m involved heavily with our Guided E-learning website, an online resource that all our students can use for extra practice and learner support.

Originally from Coventry, I moved to Brighton 10 years ago and think it’s a fantastic place to be. My girlfriend and two children love it here too. Living by the sea, summer or winter, is great and with lots of young people, cool shops and a buzzing nightlife you’ll never be bored for something to do. When not discussing the uses of the third conditional or the subtleties of English pronunciation, I can be found lazing on Brighton beach, catching up with students on facebook, eating doughnuts and gambling on Brighton pier or staring out to sea wishing I was sailing.

If you make it to Brighton, congratulations! You should definitely celebrate - and what better place to celebrate?! On the downside it is said the last witch to be hanged on the hills outside the city cursed everyone who entered with an inability to ever leave. But that’s ok, why would you want to? Since I arrived here to study back in 2001 I have spent only a couple of years away from this city. I needed to teach abroad and I needed to see more of the world. But the more you see of the world the more you realise it's alive within Brighton itself. The population has been gathered from all corners of our globe, so if the witch gets her nails into you, do not distress - living in Brighton is like travelling without moving. If you love travelling and you love people, come and get settled. I, myself, am one of the lucky few not only privileged to live here but also to teach here. In teaching I get to share what I love and share in what other people love and I know this will never get old, even if I never escape this city.

Teaching here at EC has given me the opportunity to meet people from the whole spectrum of different cultures. What other jobs can you find yourself discussing the Finnish public health system, the history of manga, the cuisine of Uzbekistan and finer points of the rules of cricket in the space of an hour and a half lesson? Brighton is a great place to live and study in, and I wouldn't live anywhere else in England - even though my clubbing days are over and my main love is skiing!

My name is Charlotte Goodyear and I have been working at EC Brighton for almost two years as a teacher. The thing I love most about this job is meeting new people from different cultures and learning about their countries. I am hugely embarrassed to say that I was nominated as the best teacher of the year 2012 by my colleagues, so I guess I must be doing something right.

Most importantly, I love my job so I always come to work with a smile. In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking and eating. As a vegetarian I eat a lot of cheese and I feel that pizza is a perfectly acceptable meal for any time of day. I also love going out clubbing at the weekend with my friends and searching for new pubs to go to as there are over 300 in Brighton! I am also trying to learn French at the moment… but I haven’t got very far :)

Teacher Testimonial
My name is Tim Cooke and I have been working at EC Brighton for almost six years, in both administrative and teaching roles, though I have to say I prefer the teaching as I have never been very good at sitting at a desk for very long. During the hectic summer months I assist the smooth running of our junior centre, which is always eventful and never dull, teenagers rarely being the kinds of students who let their teachers rest on their laurels! It may be a cliché but as a teacher you yourself learn something every day; it really is a two-way learning experience.

In my free time I enjoy reading, watching films, and cooking, and being fortunate enough to live by the beach, I love nothing more than clambering along the shingle collecting interesting pieces of driftwood which I often turn into frames and black-boards.
