We are a small school and our administrative and teaching staff know each of our students individually and can cater for their individual needs.

      I attended this school for two weeks in September 2009. I enjoyed the instructors and other students very much and I wish I could have studied longer. The classes were small and very well organized; the instructors were very knowledgeable and able to tailor classes to students needs and learning interests. I also arranged several private classes - these were most beneficial for me and I highly recommend these to others. The registration process was somewhat lengthy but the testing did allow for the small groups to be arranged with students of similar levels. I think it would be very difficult to organize classes of this type but ELFE did a marvelous job! The instructors are excellent and so are all those who work in administration. Everyone was helpful and I hope I can return soon.
