Our happy customers
I studied in ELA just for three months and it's a pity that time flew so fast. It was a great experience and unforgettable time. The school provides an intensive program for students who have willing to improve English skills. There are professional high-qualified teachers with individual approaching to students. I feel that my English level has boosted. Thanks for my progress in English to Steven, Hedvig and Duncan! My group was really international, so I met new friends around the world, from Monaco, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Italy, Taiwan, China. ELA is located in the centre of Edinburgh where you are surrounded by the history of Scotland, every day you can see the Edinburgh Castle through a school window. If I have a chance to return Edinburgh, I will certainly be at ELA again.

Great teachers, great organization. I strongly recommend ELA if you want to learn or improve your English. I will always be grateful to the whole staff. Stefania Lorio
Just perfect. Class time doesn't feel like class time, but just as a chat between friends. Still, you get to learn a lot. The staff is very friendly and prepared.
