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

Our goal is to be an independent, ethical, and environmentally-aware organisation dedicated to the teaching of English, and more generally to the nurturing of positive values in young people in an international setting.

To achieve this goal, we aim to provide a secure, welcoming, inclusive and fun environment where students can feel at ease with each other and our staff, whilst on a course which they find both stimulating and challenging.

We believe that this will provide the platform we need to deliver the following outcomes for our students:

  • A development of their language skills and confidence
  • A deepening of their knowledge and understanding of British life and culture
  • A broadening of their outlook on the world and awareness of other perspectives
  • New, wide-ranging and long-lasting friendships that cross cultures
