Thanks to everyone from this school. It was really nice to meet all of you. I would like you to know that I spent 2 wonderful weeks at ELA and I hope to see you again.
Isabella, Suzanne and Steven,
before a new week starts please let me thank you all for the nice and useful last week I had in Edinburgh and at your school.
It was a great pleasure to meet and spend time with you all last week.
Not only I had interesting and relevant English lessons but also I had the chance to visit a great impressive city.
And that thanks to your kind recommendations! So I could really appreciate posh area, fashionable restaurants/cafés and very pleasant people.
….and despite I’m Italian and when it comes to food I’m fussy, I enjoyed wonderful food!!!
For sure, I will recommend your school and Edinburgh to all.
Bruno Walter, KPMG Milan, Italy
It's a great pleasure to be in touch with you again!
I'll surely recommend ELA to friends and colleagues interested in attending general or professional English courses as your Legal English course has given me useful skills for my job.
Hope to be soon in Edinburgh again!
