Why Choose Elac?

Here are four reasons why you should choose Elac for your language, culture and activity courses in the United Kingdom.

1. A proven track record
We have been working in the language school sector  since 1991. In this time we have earned a reputation for quality and for the individual care and personal service that we offer everyone participating in our courses. Since 2000, we have gradually built an impressive portfolio of centres and a very satisfied group of partners overseas.

2. A small and dedicated team
Elac is no longer a small ‘family-run’ business – we welcome around 3,500 students each year.  However, we still retain the values and ethos that characterised Elac from the beginning and which make it attractive to our staff, students and partners.  We are an organisation that is friendly, personal, loyal, professional and caring. We strongly believe in building relationships and being good partners.

3. Good knowledge of our agents and students
Elac has been co-operating with a group of agents since the beginning of the organisation in Eastbourne. These agents send students back year after year because they are completely satisfied with the courses we deliver. This has allowed us to build up excellent relationships with the key people in these organisations – if problems arise, we work closely and quickly to resolve them.

4. Loyal and experienced staff
Most of our key staff have been with us for a number of years. We rely on them in the summer to be the ‘public face’ of Elac; the promoters of our values and the deliverers of our promises. The loyalty and quality of our staff has enabled us to grow year on year.

Our Mission Statement

We have three prime aims for all our students:

  • To improve their English language skills quickly
  • To learn about British life and culture
  • To make new friends from many different countries

In order to achieve this we provide a secure and happy environment where students can feel at ease with each other, whilst on a course which they find both stimulating and challenging. We believe this provides the greatest opportunity for language learning and development.
