How real people said about us


Aneta Ř

Digital Marketing Consultant

Thanks to David for being here for his students despite this situation.
I can still have my lessons online which is a great way for keeping my brain practicing English and as a result, I am not going crazy because of the lockdown.


Nujood A

University Lecturer

“I’m taking online courses with ELA and I’ve noticed definite improvements in my English. Also the classes are very personalized, I choose what I want to focus on, and that is very convenient.
At first I was hesitant about video classes that they might not be effective as the normal ones, but this experience has definitely changed my views about online learning.”


Anna B


“I recently did four 1-to-1 online lessons with David at ELA.
The lessons were tailored to my level and learning aims. David comes across as very professional and knowledgeable. Communications are quick. Good value for money.”


Tanya Sportak, Germany

“Great experience. Teachers were very competent, lessons interesting and classes had small number of students. The school itself is in the city centre, where you have a lot of nice cafes and parks to spend breaks.”


Edoardo Bontempo, Italy

Business English

“My experience at ELA Language Academy was really good.
The School, which is located in the centre of Edinburgh, provides you with the necessary material to improve your English skills.
The Staff and the Teachers are all well-prepared and qualified; they are always ready to help you.
The small number of students in every class is one of the most important factors in learning a new language.
Last but not least, Edinburgh is a lovely and picturesque city every person should visit.”


Maddalena Drera, Italy


“If you are looking for a 5-star English school in Edinburgh, ELA is just the place to be. I have loved every minute I was there, and I will miss all the teachers there very much.”


Domenico Auddino, Italy

“I really liked ELA. The teachers are amazing, they are always there if you need them.”
