On the first day of school, the Principal told us that ELC would be our family in Bristol. I realized, after a while, that all the ELC staff make you feel at home. ELC is like a big door which opens up the world. We come here to learn English, but ELC is more than that because you can experience many different cultures and make beautiful friendships, especially on the social programme excursions.
“I was at ELC for nine months and it was the time of my life. I wish I could go back in time to be at the school, taking part in the social programme activities, school parties.
Thanks to ELC for teaching me so much during the nine months I was there. It wasn’t a matter of learning English because at ELC I learned about life. And of course, thank you for giving me amazing lifelong friends.”
“ELC Bristol is simply the best place if you want to really learn English in an innovative way. You’ll meet amazing people from all around the world.
It’s a learning journey that will change you forever.”
“Learning English at ELC gave me a fantastic experience. I arrived here completely without English and ELC improved my English. I made a lot of different friends and all my time here was amazing.”
“I am happy to be learning English at ELC. The teachers are really friendly and good-natured. I like social programme activities because I can make new friends.
I also think Bristol is a perfect place for studying because there are a lot of things to enjoy.”
