John & Margaret Duncan


Our students frequently tell us that the teachers at ELC Bristol are 'amazing', 'the best they have ever known'. This is so important, because teachers are the most important people in a school.

We get to know all our students as individuals. Not only will we help you in the classroom but we will also interview you regularly and also plan an individual supervised self-study programme for you. Every single student is known by name and every student in the school is discussed in our weekly teachers' meetings.

All of our teachers are qualified native speakers, but maybe what is equally important is that they care a lot about our students.  They also have many years' experience teaching English (average: 20 years) and they have worked at ELC Bristol for a long time (average: 11 years).
