  • It's a great pleasure to be in touch with you again! I'll surely recommend ELA to friends and colleagues interested in attending general or professional English courses as your Legal English course has given me useful skills for my job. Hope to be soon in Edinburgh again!

  • I was already studying at ELA before starting attended the Business English course. Then, as I was happy to study there, I decided to take this course in order to improve my knowledge in this area as it is my domain of studying in France. What I found the most useful was that we were in a little group of study. Then, I found that my time there was really efficient. My favorite teaching method was when I had to talk in front of everyone. It forced me to use the skills I got previously. I enjoyed to be fully immersed in a British culture. The best advice I could give is not to be afraid to be criticized.
