“My University Preparation program was beyond my expectation. I learned so much about academic writing, reading skills, public speaking and so on. The course was demanding and challenging but at the same time priceless. Aside from the regular course, tutoring offered at the Pronunciation Centre was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend the ELC to any serious English learners around the world!”

What's it like living in Victoria?

When you travel, sometimes you feel jealous for those who live there because the place looks too good to be a real place. Victoria was that kind of city to me. It was unbelievably beautiful, and people were so nice that I wanted to be a part of it!

Best advice for new students

Victoria is one of the best places to study English, and ELC is the best one in Victoria, with resources such as listening lab, writing centre, pronunciation centre and also lots of student clubs and volunteering opportunities. Don’t be afraid of jumping in this new world! And don’t be afraid of asking questions!
