Dank u voor uw e-mail en het verslag over het verloop van Céline in ECHO! […] Dit is een zeer goed resultaat, en moedigt haar aan om door te gaan. Bij terugkeer, was Céline zeer positief over haar ervaringen, werk en vooruitgang. Mijn vrouw en ik willen jullie bedanken voor de mogelijkheden die jullie Celine hebben aangeboden, voor jullie inspanningen, met het intensieve en motiverende programma, en voor de goede zorgen voor haar en de rest van de studenten.

Hallo Alex, via deze e-mail wil ik u bedanken voor de tijd die mijn dochter Julia in jullie huis heeft doorgebracht. Ze was erg blij en ze heeft een geweldige tijd gehad. Zodanig dat zij, en haar vrienden, volgend jaar terug willen komen!!! Bedankt voor alles. groeten

Moeder Julia, Duitsland, 16

Geachte meneer Moore, Thomas en Marie waren erg blij en tevreden met hun verblijf en de cursus op de ECHO-school!!! Alles was geweldig: ze mochten geen Frans spreken (anders hadden ze “kitchen work”), hetgeen erg goed voor hen was! En de cursussen waren geweldig, ze hebben erg genoten van alle activiteiten, het eten was “heerlijk” – u kunt de felicitaties overbrengen aan de chef-kok. Dus hartelijk dank voor de serieuze aanpak van uw school! Ze willen volgend jaar juli terugkomen, dat is heel goed nieuws. Hartelijk dank ook aan uw team. Groeten.

Delphine, Thomas’ moeder (15) en Marine (13), Frankrijk

Thank you for the great time I had here. This is my first time at Echo and I enjoyed it a lot. I learned a lot of English while having fun.

P.S. The food was very good, thank you Carmen! And it was really nice of you to celebrate my birthday :-)

Dear Alex, Carmen, Ana, Nico and all the staff at ECHO,

This was my third time at ECHO, this time for three weeks and, as always, all is fantastic here.

Classes, activities, excursions and fun! That’s all you need for a perfect English course, and ECHO has got that and more. That’s why I love this place to learn English. So thank you for these three weeks here, as I said, excellent.

Antonio, Spanish, 13

Dear Alex, Carmen, Nico, Ana and everyone else who made the last two weeks so great,

Michele, Italian, 17

Hi Echo! This is my last year with you because next year I’ll be too old :-( . It’s always a pleasure to come back to England with you and I would like to thank you for lots of reasons. You helped me with my English, you’ve always been nice to me and I’ve made lots of precious friends, so thank you! :-) I hope I could come back one year to say hello! You will miss me! Big kisses to Alex, Carmen (I love your food), Nico and Ana.

 

Marine, French, 17

Thank you all for the amazing experience I had here at Echo.  You showed me that English is not so hard to speak as I thought and is also really fun. I am sad to leave you because I was brave enough to make new friends… Maybe I am able to come back next year, but, still, this was one of the best things I have ever done in life… You also taught me self-confidence, and I’m really thankful for that, and sad: it’s hard to say goodbye.

Alexa, German, 15

These two amazing weeks only happen once in a lifetime, thank you for everything. I enjoyed every moment with teachers and friends. Thank you.

Miguel, Spanish, 15

I’ll start by saying that this was the best experience I’ve ever had! Here I felt like at home… and this is because everyone I’ve met was special and irreplaceable.  You’re a great big family :-)

Thank you for everything:

Alex: thank you for everything, your lessons were very useful and everything you said to me is precious!

Carmen: your food was very good, I enjoyed spending time here!

Gary: your lessons were interesting, thank you.

Anna-Liisa and Claire: you understood me and helped me a lot. Thank you for the most enjoyable lessons ever!

Thanks everyone I’ve met here, you were so important for me during these days!  I’ll miss you.

 

Vittoria, Italian, 17

Thanks for these two UNFORGETTABLE WEEKS…

Thanks everybody! Claire, Anna-Liisa, Gary for the funny lessons, I’ve learned a lot of new things. Thanks Alex and Carmen for everything else: the organisation of everything, the meals… Thanks to everybody who has been here at Echo in these two weeks.  You have all made this experience THE BEST.

I’ll miss you.

Serena, Italian, 15

Echo, Alex and Carmen,

Thank you so much for these 4 weeks in Echo!

It was so good for me and for my English, now I can write an email all in English, which before I couldn’t. The Grammar, Text/Vocab and Communication Classes and the Intensive Course were very good. I liked it. Now at home I speak English with my stepfather and I almost understand what he says :-) It’s easier than before.  I am very grateful for all that I experienced last month and now I can start a new school year with better English and better English exams…

I want to come back next year, if possible!!!

 

Marina, Brazilian/German, 16

Hartelijk dank voor deze twee fantastische weken. Ik heb erg genoten op de ECHO school, en ik mis iedereen erg. Ik heb veel geleerd, en misschien zien we elkaar volgend jaar weer. Groeten aan iedereen.

Katrin (Duitsland, 16)

Dank u voor de twee weken heb ik doorgebracht in Brighton. Ik vond de cursus erg leuk, en de activiteiten ook. Ik denk dat ik er veel aan zal hebben volgend jaar. Kunt u de leraren bedanken namens mij? Ik hoop volgend jaar terug te keren.

Armand (Frankrijk)

We hebben echt genoten van onze tijd hier. We leren veel en hebben veel plezier gehad. Dank aan alle leraren en iedereen die voor de ECHO school werken. We zullen deze twee weken nooit vergeten.

Francesco, Alfredo, Claudio, Alessia, Carlotta, Sabrina, Martina en Alessandro (Italië)

Dank u voor deze drie fantastische weken, ik zal ze nooit vergeten, en zal iedereen in Denemarken vertellen dat ze naar de ECHO school moeten gaan! Ik heb veel fantastische vrienden ontmoet en dank aan alle leerkrachten

Louise (Denemarken)

Ik vond de leraren en mijn klasgenoten erg leuk, en kameraadschap was zeer gastvrij. Ik zal iedereen van de ECHO school missen – het was leuk en ik heb veel geleerd!

Lena (Duitsland)

Op andere scholen gaan de mensen 3 uur per dag naar school en daarna spreken ze hun eigen taal. Het is veel beter om naar een kleine school, zoals ECHO, te gaan, waar de mensen de hele tijd engels spreken. Je kunt mensen ontmoeten uit je eigen land, zoals ik heb gedaan, maar ook met hen spreek je altijd Engels.

Maika (Spanje)
