What our students say

The teachers are really friendly and I feel really comfortable here. On IELTS Alex and Steve taught me how to face the IELTS exam and really helped me to get the IELTS score I needed.

I'd recommend ELC because it's a professional school, it's well-located and overall there is a good environment for studying.

The course has been very useful, practical, with clear aims and thought-provoking. The insight and content of the course were very focussed on the main issues of CLIL. The course was very well developed with clear insights into what CLIL is about....

My host family helps me with English and I will miss them a lot. I was worried before I arrived if they might not be friendly and if I could understand English but all is OK. Everyone I have met at home and in the town is very friendly.

I've been here for almost six months, when I arrived here I couldn’t speak, I couldn’t understand anything and I’ve been improving a lot so I think it’s a very good school!

I like the school because of our social programme. It is really good - we can do a lot of activities and also the parties. I like that there is table tennis so we can play during break times.

My host family is like my real family. My host mum always takes care of me like her own daughter. My room is big and she always cleans it!

It has been a very good experience. It is a useful course and I have got more confidence in English. My fluency is better. I feel this experience has made me a more open person. Normally I am shy but it is easier now to start a conversation.

When the weather is nice, it is very nice to live by the sea because it is very different from my country and the seafront is beautiful.
