Testimonial

"My wife and I did 10 sessions to improve our business conversation skills, on a semi-private evening at ELC's premises. Schedule was flexible, so we were able to adjust it based on our availability. We were amazed by our teacher, the methodology and material helped us to achieve and exceed our expectations. Our co-workers and direct managers noticed improvement."
