Unsere Woche in Edinburgh war rundum gelungen. Der Sprachkurs am CES (Centre of English Studies) spornte unsere SchülerInnen zu tollen Leistungen an und machte Spaß. Die MitarbeiterInnen des CES standen auch bei Fragen und für Tipps gern zur Verfügung. Die Allermeisten fühlten sich bei ihren Gastfamilien sehr wohl. Die Stadt begeisterte sowieso jeden. Auch der Ausflug zu Loch Lomond war ein sehr schönes Erlebnis. Wir hatten neben dem „offiziellen“ Programm noch genug Zeit für selbst organisierte Aktivitäten. Die Organisation der ganzen Reise durch Travelworks funktionierte wunderbar, und wir waren mit jeder Frage und jedem Anliegen willkommen.
I had a very good time definitely in CES School in Leeds, for the quality of teaching and the availability of everybody at school.
I had been following a general English course for six weeks and my English has improved especially in speaking and listening.
Every week the school arranges some social activity and it is a very important thing for the socialisation.
I can say definitely that my experience in Leeds has been really interesting for learning and life aim.
When I first enrolled for English classes at CES I was contacted by very professional and caring staff. The welcoming and outgoing atmosphere in school helped me to settle down and enjoy learning. All my teachers are well-informed, experienced, considerate and thoughtful people. I find the English lessons stimulating, entertaining, though-provoking and quite intense. My confidence in writing is developing, my listening skills are improving and my speaking is becoming more and more grammatically correct. My lessons at CES I find very useful for understanding the English language and the English way of life. I am highly impressed to meet students from all over the world to learn about different cultures and to make friends.
I have spent 4 months at CES Worthing and have had an amazing experience.
I have improved my English, Teachers were very kind and i had a very interesting classes.
The staff were also very kind and i spent alot of time having fun taking part in the social programme.
I met lots of students from around the World and have learnt about many different cultures.
I recommend everyone to spend time in CES!
I have been at CES Worthing for 6 months doing my FCE exam. In that time i have met many different people from around the World, who have bought me many different ideas and new experiences. I absolutely recommend CES Worthing as a study center. Thanks for everything!
My stay at the CES Worthing Language School was one of the best experience of my life. I have been here for 5 months – from October 2015 to March 2016. The school has many advantages, but I would like to mention some of them. Lovely teachers, schoolmates from around the world and good facility at the school. The best part of my 5 month months was definitely opportunity to talk everyday with people from different cultures. We had many discussion about interesing topics such as religion, culture or work. Thank to CES I realize, that my point of view is not always the best. I would like to come back in the future
When I came to CES Harrogate I didn’t understand English so I couldn’t say anything. Now I can speak, read, listen and write because the teachers helped me to learn English. The teachers are very helpful and experienced, they use the best methods to help you understand and improve your language. (I am very grateful to them)
The administrative staff are very helpful and they facilitate things for you and help you if you need, for example, to register at hospital/GP or the train station or the bank or the police and host family etc.
Harrogate is a very nice place to live and quiet and safe and good to study so you will not feel bored and the people who live there are very kind and friendly. In my opinion you should study at CES Harrogate if you want to learn English and improve your language.
I am really enjoying studying English at CES Harrogate. When I discuss a topic with my classmate in a lesson, I learn fascinating culture, because we are from different country. We sometimes get excited about disagreement, but I like that time.
From my perspective, CES Oxford was everything I was looking for. I am personally surprised at how much my English skills have been improved particularly my communication skills. Before beginning a course, it was absolutely difficult for me to communicate with foreigners. This problem has been solved by challenging courses as well as learning activities outside the classroom. To me, I love CES Oxford wholeheartedly. This has been the most valuable language experience.
CES School: the BEST experience of my life!
By going to CES School-Oxford I had the chance to be in a human-sized school, with a well-organised English programme to follow and a lovely village to stay in where everyone is so welcoming. As the CES team who warmly welcomed me and made me feel like I was at home. The teachers are all amazing, and by working in small groups, all my friends and I succeeded to improve our English really fast. Many captivating activities are organised every day and week-end, I had the chance to go to the Oxford Theatre to see beautiful shows and I visited so many cities like Cambridge, London, Brighton, Bath, Stratford-upon-Avon and so many others. Oxford is a magnificent city and I recommend everybody to discover it by going to CES School-Oxford.

Talking about CES Oxford? Just amazing!
I've spent an entire summer there and I can hardly say how much I missed sun and real summer, but I wouldn't have changed anything about it, knowing how many lovely people I met.
The staff of the school directly know every single student, and find moments to talk to them and understand their feelings, no one can silently stay in the corner! Every teacher has his own peculiar way of teaching, and tries continually to innovate it. That's why CES Oxford achieves a very dynamic education.
In my personal experience, I've also found a very special family, delicious food and comfortable accommodation.
I'd recommend everyone to spend some days at CES!

CES Oxford is without doubt the best school I've ever been to. Being a student there for 3 months i was able to forge friendships with the staff as well as with some of the teachers. However, this is nothing compared to the number of great friends I made all over the world which not only have extremely different cultural backgrounds but also come from almost every age group one can think of.
CES is also a place where I as a student felt home and considered everyone as my second family.
Of course there are also bad things. Mostly they're called 'Fridays' because these are the days when students leave CES and go home to their schools, jobs or whatever they are leaving for. It's a hard good bye since you never you when you're going to meet anyone again. It gets even harder the longer you stay because at some point everyone who started at the same day as you already left. Also, most people who leave then started later than you did and you get aware of the fact that you literally see people come and go.
But at the same time you become incredibly happy having been given the chance to meet all these amazing new friends of yours and you start to realise that everyone left a piece of them in you. And when the day comes where you have to leave yourself you know that there will be a piece of you in the school which will stay there forever. Be it a memory of you, a story about you or a simply a tear you cried when giving a speech.'
That was early autumn with the flown of maple leafs, i came to this marvellous school CES. With the humorous lectures, the co-operate classmates and the warmth atmosphere. I have had a wonderful time and gained a lot. Such an unforgettable memory.
The days in CES remained and gave me the precious student life.
It's not big school though that's why we are like family. Every teacher remembers student name and there are a lot of fun activities for you. For me to make pumpkin lamp for Halloween was very fun :)
I'm happy to meet new good friends in ces.
You will enjoy your life in CES:) and in UK :)

- You're going to be surrounded by fun, crazy, lovely people.
- There's always someone around for a chat.
- The classes are great fun.
- My host was warm and welcoming and gave me a second home during the time of my stay here.
Don't think twice: Just go! No language school compares! I think the mixture of great atmosphere, nice people and good and funny lessons is the best one could wish for!
I spent brilliant days at CES. Because I have made many friends of overseas. I still like my mate and I hope that I can go there again. 💗
‘I’m really happy with my classes and teachers. I like the international food parties and making friends with different nationalities.
My homestay is very caring and they make lovely food!’
‘I like the easy access to the city centre and this school is very good because it’s not too crowded. It’s nice being close to Wimbledon town centre and then only 20 minutes by train into central London.
There is a good nationality mix in the classes and teachers use pair work well. I like making friends with students from different countries and I visited an ex-CES student in Spain last year.’
If you are thinking of studying or improving your English, CES will be your best choice! You can meet some friendly people and I am sure that, like me, you will learn a lot.
