The school is great! ELI has really good teachers, especially Julie and Glen. The people and staff are nice and always willing to help the students.

My English improved a lot, especially listening and speaking. Glen is a great teacher and works really well with his students. My goal was to pass the iBT TOEFL test the very first time and I did it!

ELI has cool teachers and students. I enjoyed being able to speak with other students in English. I really like the textbook I bought from ELI. I will use this textbook to study and practice English during my free time when I return to France.
