ELC is the most professional services business I came across in my time in Portugal. Everything from the facilities, materials, staff were all excellent.

The ELC in Cascais is a great school to learn English. During the classes, there is a great environment of work. I acquired in less than a year great knowledge of that language. I think also that this school is to be recommended for other people to attend.

I can say that at first I chose ELC as it is close to my home, but over time, after having classes with 3 different teachers, I am now convinced that I am at the right school to learn English. I am very satisfied with ELC and take advantage of this opportunity to thank the whole ELC team.

A very friendly and welcoming environment with relaxed tutor. The lessons were both fun and beneficial and were tailored to my specific requirements. My Portuguese has improved, together with my confidence. I have no hesitation in recommending the ELC school to others.

The things that I most liked are the possibility to speak English with my colleagues and teacher (practice my fluency), the help that my teacher gave me to speak correctly and to learn vocabulary.

Lina Gomes

On my first day I was very nervous but in the end, there was nothing to be afraid of. The teacher and my colleagues were very kind, making me feel at home; the classes were different from our secondary school: we learn by using games, films, music and different exercises. In short, I am loving my English Course!
