Welcome to England!
ELC Brighton, ELC Eastbourne and ELC Chester offer a wide choice of high quality English language courses in a warm, friendly and professional environment. Each school and region has its own unique character but all of the staff at each of the three schools are passionate about providing comprehensive, practical courses and very personal service.
The group of three schools is ranked the No 1 group of English language schools in the UK by EL Gazette in its review of language school groups and chains.
Our English Courses for Adults aged 50 plus in the UK
Our 50-plus courses are a popular blend of English language tuition in small, friendly groups, and guided social activities and excursions.
The 50-plus courses at ELC’s schools in Eastbourne and Chester are specifically designed for adult students aged 50 or over who wish to combine practising their English at a quality language school with an extensive programme of visits, activities and excursions in the company of like-minded people from around the world. ELC has more than 30 years of experience in delivering English language courses for mature learners.
In the mornings, for 20 lessons (15 hours) per week, you will study English in a multinational 50-plus class at your level. In the afternoons and at the weekend you will join the dedicated 50-plus social programme.
What’s really nice about this programme is that your teacher will go out on the afternoon excursions with you, so you have a local guide and language mentor with you to answer all your questions, keep you learning, and to ensure everything goes smoothly.
Other ideas for over 50s
If you’re not quite ready to relax, and you would like to improve your English for professional situations (and you just happen to be over 50 too), then there are some other options to consider below, such as a business English course, the 25+ programme in Chester, or one-to-one English lessons.
