Ragioni per scegliere l’ELC

ELC 36 Years
  • Experience: ELC has been providing high-quality programs and services to students and agents around the world since 1978 in LA, since 1990 in Boston, and since 2012 in Santa Barbara. Our founder, Ellyn Levine is still the owner and President and is still involved in the day-to-day operations of ELC to ensure quality is upheld at each location. ELC is a member of IALC, ACCET, NAFSA and AAIEP. Each location is also one of very few approved American testing sites for the University of Cambridge FCE, CAE and CPE exams. ELC is also authorized to administer the Institutional TOEFL and TOEIC exams.
  • Top city center locations: The schools are located in the heart of Los Angeles, Boston and Santa Barbara. Our neighborhoods are interesting, safe and convenient to public transportation.
  • Wide student diversity: Each ELC location has approximately even numbers of Asian, European, and Middle-eastern students.
  • Flexibility: Some of our most popular programs may be started on any Monday and students may stay for any number of weeks. Special programs and group packages can be arranged.
  • Strong academics: Students are placed into grammar, conversation and reading and writing according to their level in each subject. A student may have high intermediate grammar, low intermediate conversation and intermediate reading and writing. Almost no other schools have this system due to the time and effort it takes to schedule these classes. ELC has small classes with maximum 12 students (14 in July and August). ELC operates on a morning class schedule, however ELC reserves the right to schedule classes at an alternate hour during especially popular sessions. However, since ELC has been open, we have never had to do this. Students generally prefer morning class schedules so we do our best and have always been able to provide morning schedules. Orientation on the first day of school, students have an orientation in the morning and go right into classes on the same day in the afternoon. ELC offers a free tutoring service two days per week, ELC offers the free tutoring service to all ELC students.
  • Chaperoned activities: ELC offers a wide variety of activities. Most are free or inexpensive. Generally teachers lead these activities giving the students an opportunity to interact with their teachers outside of the classroom.
  • On site Housing Coordinator: ELC runs its own homestay program in addition to providing other housing options. Our Housing Coordinators visit the families on a regular basis to ensure quality is upheld. Background checks are required of all of our host families.
  • Popular Junior Programs: Since 1995, ELC has been providing junior programs at UCLA in Los Angeles, at Wheelock College in Boston, at UCSB in Santa Barbara, and at MIT in Cambridge, MA, which are all extremely popular. Our programs combine the fun and excitement of being in the city center with the safety and excellent facilities of a campus. The programs continue to grow in all locations. Book early for both programs, especially if booking a group.
  • Fast response time: ELC responds to questions and processes enrollments within one business day.
  • Free College and University Assistance: ELC provides a service free of charge to students in our Academic Programs who would like assistance with applying to university or college within the USA. ELC has established a growing network of colleges and universities in the USA that will offer our students conditional letters of acceptance, accept our student’s highest level of English in lieu of the TOEFL or TOEFL waiver, and some will allow concurrent enrollment.
