50+ English Courses for Seniors in Eastbourne, England

ELC Eastbourne (formerly Eastbourne School of English) has over 30 years’ experience in delivering English language courses for senior (50+) learners.

Eastbourne, one of the sunniest towns in England, is an ideal location for a language holiday. On the south-coast of England just 90 minutes by train from London, Eastbourne is within easy reach of stunning countryside such as the white cliffs of Beachy Head and Seven Sisters and some of the most important historic sites in the last 1000 years of English history such as Lewes, Hastings and Battle.
