I spent 6 months in the ELI and it was a really good experience. I got to know wonderful people from all over the world which I still have contact with. The program is very well built to learn and/or improve your English, the classes are interesting and the staff really helps you to reach your goal whatever it is. With the TOEFL score I got, I was able to start an undergraduate English program in International Management in Switzerland in September 2010. The 6 months in the ELI not only helped me for my future but also were terrific and fun!
