Words from our students
ELS improved my language. Then, they corrected my grammar mistakes and told me many things about my major. Also, they told me how I can get admission [to university], and there are some classes to help me with my major. They gave me many after-school classes every month. I will start university to catch my goal, and I would like to come back and visit my teachers in ELS because I really made new friends there.Bandar - ELS Intensive English Alumni, Purdue University Graduate, Saudi Arabia
