English Level Evaluation with Multi-Level Placement
Each student benefits from our English level evaluation with multi-level placement.

This method ensures that students study English in the learning environment that is best for them.
Authorized Test Center
All ELC Schools are open authorized test administration sites for all of the Cambridge exams including FCE, CAE and CPE. ELC is also an authorized test center of the Institutional TOEFL Test and TOEIC Test.
Each student can continue to practice his/her English skills outside of the school through chaperoned activities and excursions with their friends from ELC. Participating in activities is a great way for students to meet their classmates and experience all that Boston has to offer.
