We want students to know the [Pleasure of Communication]. Therefore, we do not only teach the language of other countries, but also the cultures and ways of life that can be found around the world. With this ideal, ELI [English Language Institution] was established in 1992.
At our schools, students not only learn everyday English ability, but how not to be shy is using their ability with foreigners. Students of a new language need confidence with their new skills, and our instructors prepare these students on how to fit in when they need to speak a foreign language in foreign country for work or study, or when dealing with foreigners in their home country.
With this instructor approach, over 15 years we have connected students internationally with our 「 Door to the World 」 concept. Also, for students looking to gain qualifications like TOEIC or TOEFL, or to prepared for English job interviews and getting their dream jobs, ELI and its instructors always do their best to make students understand that “We are here to help you” with any of their study goals and dreams.
At ELI, our well-prepared and internationally experienced instructors and staff are waiting for you! We invite you to come and experience not only our lessons, but the valuable stories, experience, and information available from everyone.
