    When I came to ECA I couldn't understand English. However, ECA teachers explained things in a kindly way and answered all of my questions happily. (Of course about English but also about travel, food, events all kinds of information.) They are very kind and interesting. I was also helped by my classmates. I could make a lot of friends with people from lots of other countries so I could learn a lot about different cultures. It was a precious experience. I had a wonder time with them and I'll never forget the time I spent here. I was very happy studying at ECA, Thank you very much.
