The best experience

It was a extraordinary course, I met a lot of people, and improved my english. The teacher was excellent and we got to know each other pretty well. We also supported each other through all the learning process in order to got a good exam. It was by far the best experience ever, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to visit Australia and study in this wonderful school.

Perfect time with you ELC!

I completed 20 weeks of general english at ELC and recommend it to everyone! I started studying at the intermediate level and finished in the Upper. I enjoyed most of my classes. I had the opportunity to live with 5 Australian teachers and an American teacher who gave me full support in answering my questions and helping with questions outside of class as well. I studied in the night period and it did not stop me from improving my level of English. I also recommend the structure of the school, complete dining room, rest area, computer room available as long as you need. I'll miss ELC team, and I loved the time I spent with you!

JUST PERFECT!
I enjoyed every second!
The lessons were extremely funny. We learned so much about different nationalities. The most students were alone in Australia, that is no problem because your family is there is ELC!
ELC is very different as the German schools. That's perfect ;) In my country I was very happy at the weekend. No school...Yeeea!
In Australia I really missed the school, the teacher and the other students at the weekend.
ONE OF THE BEST TIME IN MY LIFE!!!

THANK YOU ELC♡♡♡♡♡

I am very satisfied with ELC. Lessons are very interesting and usefully. I like the system of classes, in first time we learn and than we practise it. Teachers and classmates are very nice and friendly. ELC also offers many activities for visiting Sydney proposed by school. I can honestly say, by my experience, the teachers really want to improve our english. Escape your ordinary life and come to study at ELC in Sydney !
