      Perfectly organized school
      I’m really proud of my choice of ELS Philadelphia. I can’t imagine another way to improve my English than the and the well prepared teachers. The staff is always available for any requests, to encourage you and help students achieve their academic or professional goals. The whole atmosphere you are surrounded by lets everyone feel comfortable. Another reason why I’m really satisfied with my studies is the amenities the campus offers. I enjoyed not only the efficient library and the up-to-date gym, but also the trips to the close towns of New York, Washington and Boston. In short, this campus location is strategic to study, travel and experience the typical American lifestyle.

      Now I can speak fluently
      When I first came to ELS, I didn't think that I will be ready to start my upper studies in such a short period of time. After 9 months of studying at ELS, I didn't just finish level 112, but also got I high score at the TOEFL exam because of the English program at ELS. Now I can speak fluently, read novels, and write many kinds of articles and researches. ELS made my dream comes true. Thank you ELS for everything that you has been giving to us.
